Washing equipment specialist McCloskey Washing Systems (, with North American headquarters in Keene, Ontario, is preparing for a number of announcements at ConExpo/ConAgg International held at Las Vegas, on March 7 to 11 at stand number S5115.

McCloskey Washing Systems launched its new business division in 2016, manufacturing a full range of mobile, modular and static material and mineral washing equipment across multiple applications. Sean Loughran, director of McCloskey Washing Systems, says, “It's been an excellent twelve months for MWS and we are delighted with the growth we are making. We have developed an impressive product range for 2017 and we are excited about unveiling a number of these products at one of the world’s most prominent shows in our industry”.

The Modular Wash Plant range, SandStorm, incorporates feeding, screening, aggregate and sand washing along with stockpiling of all products on a single compact modular chassis.

There is access all around the machine for ease of operation and safe maintenance.

The SandStorm range (516, 620 and 824) can process feeds up to 550 tons per hour, with up to four grades of aggregate and two grades of classified sand.

An addition to the SandStorm family is the new S-Line range, where all of the benefits of the modular plant are combined with the McCloskey range of Sand Screws. The S-Line range provides a new option for the North American sand washing market.

The new AggStorm Range is designed to operate as a stand-alone unit or to easily integrate with the SandStorm range of wash plants. The AggStorm is desgned to manage various types of clay-bound material where more aggressive scrubbing and washing is required than simple screening alone.

The AggStorm can be used in the construction and demolition (C&D) recycling market. This is due to wear characteristics and its design to scrub aggregates to remove, through floatation, all clays and silts, along with any light debris such as wood and plastics.

“We are delighted to announce the launch of our full range of MWS Modular Water Treatment and Management Plants including high-rate thickeners, deep-cone thickeners, automatic flocculent dosing stations and a complete line of recessed plate filter presses,” Loughran says. “Our modular approach to the development of this range allows operators to start small and build up to a full closed-loop system as budgets dictate. Offering a choice of thickener to recover up to 80 percent of processed water. Full filter press systems can be incorporated at a later stage to produce easily manageable dry silt cakes removing the need for any form of pond or lagoon altogether, resulting in a safer and much more cost effective operation. This has the added advantage of achieving up to 95 percent water recovery.”
