Swiss recycling application for Terex Washing Systems
By Steve Ducker28 February 2022
Terex Washing Systems has installed a wash recycling plant based in Geneva, Switzerland, that is said to convert construction, demolition and excavation waste into two sands and three aggregates for asphalt production.
Apart from the waste, up to 95% of the water used during the washing process is also recycled.
Described by the Dunagannon, Northern Ireland-based manufacturer as a “complete crushing, screening and washing solution”, and aimed at a throughput of 100 t/hr, the wash plant consists of an FM 120 2-G Sand Plant, an Aggrescrub 150 Log Washer complete with pre-screen and a Terex MPS (Minerals Processing Systems) impact crusher.
This section of the wash plant washes, classifies and stockpiles aggregates while recovering two specifications of sand. Any oversized material fed into the system is directed towards the Terex MPS crusher where it is crushed down to a manageable size before being fed back into the washing system.
The customer can also feed oversized material directly into the crusher and is now able to divert thousands of tonnes of construction, demolition and excavation waste from landfill each year.
“We have provided a complete end to end wash recycling solution for the customer,” said Johnston Patterson, product and applications manager at Terex Washing Systems.
“Everything is here, from feeder to filter press”.
