Superior Offers Newly Configured Portable Wash Plant

PTP123019 SuperiorSuperior Industries Inc. will showcase a newly configured portable wash plant at booth C31389 during ConExpo-Con/Agg, March 10-14, 2020. It’s one of a dozen new products the company will introduce during the Las Vegas trade show.

Capable of producing as many as five products, the Portable Spirit Wash Plant carries a 6 x 20 Guardian Horizontal Screen, plus a sand production module and ultrafines recovery module.
•    Material is fed to a slurry box, which liquefies it to improve the screening and stratification processes.
•    The three-deck horizontal screen washes and sizes three products from a top, middle or bottom deck.
•    Leftover sand is then processed through one of two Spirits Wash Modules. These modules consist of one or more Helix Cyclones followed by a dewatering screen.
•    The first wash module uses a cyclone to size and separate material for a traditional sand product. A dewatering screen ensures it’s instantly salable off the discharge chute.
•    Depending on the deposit, an optional ultra-fines recovery module washes out -100 to -400 fines for microfine material, which is saved from being lost to a waste pond.

“It’s the first time such a configuration has been created for the portable market in North America,” said Matt Voigt, manager of portable plants at Superior. “We incorporated our low profile dewatering screens and a series of hydraulically-powered components to ensure the plant is road permissible and quick to deploy.”

Applications for the new portable plant include operations with settling ponds, crushed aggregate, sand and gravel, dredging and frac sand.
