Global wet processing specialists to launch new scrubbing and attrition system and connected plant technology
CDE will be using Hillhead 2018 to launch their new scrubbing and attrition system – which is packed with new features to up the efficiency stakes – as well as their revolutionary connected plant system.
Visitors to the CDE stand (T1) will discover the new model AggMax 163-SR scrubbing and attrition system, designed to incorporate a new RotoMax log-washer and specifically developed to supply the demand for a plant that bridges the gap between the popular AggMax 80 and 250 models.
Stewart Cusick (pictured), senior product development engineer, said: ‘The new RotoMax 163-SR is constructed and designed to the same high-duty standard as the RX250, with geometry refined for efficient scrubbing action at mid-range tonnages and variable-speed drive as standard to optimize the retention time for the process material.
‘With a new Infinity D1-63 pre-screen incorporated into the design, high-frequency screening action ensures maximum sand removal prior to the attrition process, whilst the new Infinity D1-43 screen dewaters organic and lightweight wastes liberated from the attrition process.
‘Finally, an all-new Infinity H2-60 sizing screen efficiently separates material into three washed aggregates and allows the removal of sand liberated by the RotoMax’s attrition process. The aggressive throw on the horizontal washing screen ensures efficient screening by increasing retention time and allows generous access between the decks for ease of maintenance.’
As with all CDE products, efficiency, ease of use and health and safety are at the heart of all new designs. The AggMax 163-SR, which features a modular design to allow upgrades to customers’ plants, includes new modular GRP walkways throughout the machine, providing safe working access to all maintenance areas of the plant.
Access to the pump, for easy maintenance, has also been improved, whilst a new tensioning mechanism has been incorporated for quick and efficient set up of the pump.
CDE will also showcase their new connected plant at the show. Tom Houston, head of CustomCare at CDE, described this exciting innovation: ‘The CustomCare team is looking forward to displaying the new CDE connected plant technology at Hillhead. This will bring pre-emptive maintenance and support, operational efficiencies and simplicity to our customers, giving them unrivalled control of what is going on with their plant or plants through a one-touch console management hub. This is in keeping with CDE’s commitment for maximum efficiency and ease of use.’
