Terex Washing Systems (TWS) hosted a special dealer and customer event Nov. 21 at Carolina Sunrock’s Kittrell (N.C.) Quarry, where the Aggresand system made its North American debut. Also, Powerscreen introduced its Trakpactor 320SR impact crusher, and it showed a three-part system that included a Premiertrak 400 jaw crusher, a 1000 Maxtrak cone crusher and a Warrior 1400X screening plant.

The Aggresand, which produces three aggregates and two sands, handles 250 tph and features a 16-cu.-yd. hopper. The conveyor leading from the hopper is angled upward at a 18-degree angle, and a 40-in.-wide belt is designed to offer a good material spread and minimize spillage, according to Gary Stewart, applications and sales support engineer at TWS. The plant’s screen is made up of three 16-ft. x 5-ft. decks.

According to Stewart, one of the key benefits of the Aggresand is the fact that it ships in six containers. This simplifies setup time, he says.

“Everything’s set up in Ireland,” Stewart says. “Even grease lines are done in Ireland and ready to go. … The heaviest lift is actually the screen, which is 11 tons. A 50-ton crane did the work here.”

Later in the event, Powerscreen Mid-Atlantic’s Ian Williamson walked dealers and customers through Powerscreen’s Trakpactor 320SR, which is modeled after the Trakpactor 320. The 320SR features a two-deck feeder and an optional pre-screen instead of a feeder. Williamson says the plant can be prepared for transport in as few as 10 minutes.

Terex Environmental Equipment also showed off a TBC 430 biomass chipper to burn chips for energy. Kris Snyder, Terex Environmental Equipment’s biomass sales manager, says the company is currently developing a 700-hp horizontal grinder, as well as three smaller grinders. Two additional trommel screens are expected to be released in early 2015 from Terex Environmental Equipment, Snyder adds.
