Following an extensive research and development programme CDE have announced that the launch of the next generation EvoWash sand washing plant will take place at bauma Munich in April.
The EvoWash is a compact sand washing system integrating a dewatering screen, sump and hydrocyclone configuration which is customised to the specific requirements of the materials washing project on which it is specified.
“2013 represents a significant year for the EvoWash as it is 21 years since the system was first introduced” explains Kevin Vallelly, Research and Development Manager with CDE. “Our 2013 EvoWash will include some significant design changes which will further enhance its position as the premium compact sand washing plant on the global market.”
Central to the development of the new Evowash is a new dewatering screen design which will deliver maximum dewatering of the sand product by maximising the transmission of energy into the material while also minimising transfer of vibration to the supporting structure. This is achieved through the introduction of a new laminate side wall design (patent pending) which provides for a more rigid screen structure while eliminating the requirement for welding or bolts on the gussets. The new screen is 30% lighter than the previous dewatering screen and is galvanised as standard.
The new fully bolted dewatering screen design also introduces the new Vibro-Sync motor assembly mounted in a horizontal arrangement above the screen which ensures a constant linear motion is maintained in the driving plane. Commenting on this Kevin Vallelly says “We spent a lot of time in optimising the new motor arrangement which will deliver increased dewatering performance and also reduce the power requirement by almost 40%.”
Other developments aimed at maximising plant production include the introduction of new polyurethane liners within the hydrocyclone feed box which can be replaced quickly and easily and the introduction of a new CDE abrasion resistant hose to control pump suction and discharge. “This new development replaces the rubber lined steel pipework previously employed and will have a positive impact on plant production time by reducing maintenance requirements” explains Neil Mullan, Senior Design Engineer at CDE. A further improvement in maintenance access is facilitated by the mounting of the integrated centrifugal slurry pump on a turntable fixed to the rear of the Evowash chassis.
The new Evowash will include an option for an integrated 10m stockpile conveyor. This represents an opportunity to maximise production efficiency as a result of the focus on transfer point technology that ensures the most efficient transfer of material from the Evowash to the conveyor. “This option introduces our tried and tested integrated conveyor system from the M2500 mobile washing plant and increases the flexibility of the Evowash to allow us to meet the specific requirements of our customers” explains Neil Mullan.
Full specification details for the new Evowash sand washing plant will be available at the product launch during Bauma in Munich. You will find the CDE stand in Open Area North, stand number F10/N1022.
