McLanahan to showcase Ultrawash and features

Hollidaysburg, Pa. – McLanahan Corporation will be showcasing the newest size range for its UltraWASH Modular Wash Plant marking the first time that the UltraWASH 6505 will be displayed at CONEXPO-CON/AGG.

McLanahan has carefully thought of all the details and features that will make maintenance and efficiency easier – including two truly unique, patent pending features. The patent pending Eze-Riser allows the operator to cut pump maintenance time in half, and the Fines Forward Slide (patent pending) and Aggregate Discharge Hood are included to increase your efficiency.

Eze-Riser

Advertisment

The patent pending Eze-Riser works together with the pump service trolley to enable safe and efficient pump maintenance, such as changing the impellers or replacing the casing liners. A foot pedal lifts the discharge pipe from the pump and utilizes a locking mechanism to then holding the pipe aloft, offering the clearance needed for the pump to roll out on the trolley service platform unrestricted. Sufficient flexibility is provided by the hydrocyclone entry hose bend above to accommodate these few millimetres of pipe travel, making it unnecessary to disturb pipework other than where it connects directly to the pump at its suction and discharge flanges.

Fines Forward Slide

The manually adjustable Fines Forward Slide (patent pending) can divert a portion of raw fines into the coarse sand processing stream. This balances the downstream process to optimize plant capacity. Alternatively, by substituting the last row of fine material screen panels with coarse material screen panels, the Fines Forward Slide will allow alterations of the proportions of fine and coarse decking areas above, while still preventing the loss of coarse material into the fines processing stream. Two men (one each side of the sizing screen) are all that is required to simply reposition the Fines Forward Slide eliminating the use of cranes or other lifting equipment.

Aggregate Discharge / Remixing Hood

Washed aggregate is discharged from the end of the sizing screen in up to three discrete size fractions for separate stockpiling. However, any two adjacent – or indeed all three – aggregate product sizes may be recombined (either for consolidated stockpiling or onward processing as required) simply by one man’s manual operation of the aggregate discharge/remixing hood’s rubber-lined diversion traps.

Sump Conversion

McLanahan’s UltraWASH is also the only modular wash plant in the market to offer a sump conversion kit. With a sump conversion kit, you can quickly and safely change between a one-or-two-pump setup. The sand process can also be altered to process a single wash, a double wash or a two product sand. So even if your process requirements change throughout your operating lifetime, you can modify the plant to suit to get the outcome that you need.

Sales staff will be on hand to answer questions about how the McLanahan UltraWASH can maximize your profitability and increase your site’s efficiency.
