Terex Washing Systems (TWS) used CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2017 to stage the global launch of Terex AquaClear Water Management Solutions.
“A lot of our customers have a need for water management, which is a growing sector given the way environmental legislation is evolving in certain regions. TWS is delighted to be able to offer an end-to-end solution for washing and water management from a single supplier. We are launching a full range of water management products to include clarifying tanks, flocculent dosing systems, filter presses and all associated equipment to provide a one-stop solution,” Oliver Donnelly, TWS business line director, highlighting the benefits of the new Water Management Solutions.
Terex’s Water Management Solutions are typically comprised of three main components; a floc dosing plant and thickener tank can be used to recycle up to 80% of the water used in the washing process. The basic method still involves the use of ponds but on a smaller scale as the sludge sent to the ponds is of a much higher specific gravity (1,5 sg). The next stage is to incorporate a filter press which hydrates the thickened sludge even further typically down to 25% moisture. The filter press eliminates the need for ponds as the sludge is hydrated to a material/cake which can be handled by a loading shovel. This cake can be used as a lining or capping material.
TWS says it is committed to continuous expansion of its product offering and the entry into Water Management demonstrates its continued significant investment in product development, which once again raises the bar in adding value to its customers operations.
“TWS is due to begin manufacturing the Terex AquaClear Water Management Solutions in Dungannon, Northern Ireland, later this year, working alongside strategic alliance partners, Valley Equipment Company (VEC), located in Portland, Oregon. We are already handling enquiries for AquaClear from Europe and North American markets, with the first installation being a European one,” says Donnelly.
TWS is also investing in a focused technical team to support the new Terex AquaClear Water Management offering. The Terex brand is appointing a dedicated team consisting of a product manager, engineers and applications specialists together with a cutting edge new laboratory specifically designed for material testing and sample pressing. This will ensure optimum equipment selection and specification for its customers.
