McCloskey Washing Systems (MWS), Keene, Ontario, has announced its launching an addition to its modular wash plant range, the AggStorm 150, on Stand L1 at Hillhead 2018 June 26-28 in the U.K.

The AggStorm modular log washer range is designed to deal with clay-bound material from natural and crushed gravel, hardstone and construction and demolition (C&D) debris that cannot be removed by rinsing and screening alone.

The AggStorm range features twin shafts designed to run in sync with replaceable blades that mix the feed material creating 'stone on stone' attrition. The cast steel blades come in various options including AR500 and cast manganese.

“The new AggStorm 150 has been designed with the operator firmly in mind,” Ben Frettsome, sales manager of MWS, says. “Following the feedback received from our first open day in 2017 at Crown Aggregates, the engineering division of MWS concentrated its effort on key areas such as access, maintenance and ease of use.”

A common maintenance issue for customers is the ability to efficiently and safely remove worn blades or entangled plastics or debris from the shaft and blades of log washers.

With the new hull design, MWS says this can be achieved in minute. When the equipment has been locked off and isolated, the AggStorm can be unbolted along the log washer hull, allowing operators optimal uptime of their machine and lowering the cost of maintenance and repair.

The AggStorm on display at Hillhead 2018 will also incorporate the brand new 12-by-5 prescreen option. Designed to allow for the removal of fine material prior to the attrition process, the sand particles can be fed back to a McCloskey compact sand plant system.

“Our unique approach to designing our ground breaking products incorporates partnership, engagement and collaboration with our customers around the globe. This is underpinned by market leading experience and a commitment to the highest industry standards,” Sean Loughran, director of McCloskey Washing Systems, says. “As important, our comprehensive after sale support and service ensures that our attention detail goes well beyond the truck pulling out of the factory. We are staffed and ready to provide fast response times to customers around the world.”
