Sand washing technology is evolving and companies are increasingly using high-efficiency sand washers to achieve high production levels with high quality and cost efficiency. High-efficiency sand washers are heavy-duty machines capable of effectively cleaning harmful material from aggregate, recycled and other minerals while reducing water consumption. They consist of hydrosizers, separators, cyclones, and dewatering screens, and employ high-pressure streams of water to inject into areas of the rock that are difficult to reach with other cleaning methods such as log washers and screws. High-efficiency sand washers can reduce water consumption by up to 75% and energy usage by 15% over traditional log washers.
