Superior Industries released the Alliance low water washer to its line of washing and classifying machinery.

The low water washer processes crusher fines right next to the crushing circuit, the company says. The Alliance accepts a dry feed directly from the crushing circuit and processes material into manufactured sand. The washer is available for rates up to 300 tph.

“The equipment washes and processes these fines and creates another source of income for the owner,” says John Bennington, director of washing and classifying at Superior Industries.

According to Bennington, the Alliance low water washer uses 80 percent less water than the traditional screw and screen combination.

In addition, the agitator section is positioned at the front end of the screen where water is added to the dry feed and mixed, which produces thick slurry. This slurry is then dumped onto a dewatering screen with a series of spray bars to help wash fines. The end result is salable sand with about 8 percent moisture content, Superior adds.
