CDE, Walker Quarries showcase wash plant at open day

CDE open day

Wet processing solutions provider CDE is partnering with Walker Quarries in New South Wales to host an open day on the site of the quarry operator’s new wash plant.

On Thursday 11 April, CDE and Walker Quarries will unveil the 200 tonnes per hour (TPH) sand and aggregate wash plant to the industry.

Commissioned at the company’s Wallerawang Quarry in New South Wales, the CDE solution is supporting Walker Quarries to produce a range of materials for the local construction industry, including two sands – 0-3 millimetres and 3-5 millimetres – and five aggregate products – 5-3 millimetres, 10-7 millimetres, 20-14 millimetres, 22.5-75 millimetres and +75 millimetres oversize.

Daniel Webber, CDE’s General Manager for Australasia, said it’s exciting to see the plant operational and the benefits it has delivered, not only for Walker Quarries, but for the local construction industry and economy.

“We’re really looking forward to throwing open the gates of this facility and welcoming the wider industry onto the site to see the plant in full operation,” Webber said.

Wayne Chapman, Quarry Manager for Walker Quarries, said the project had been a success from the initial discussions, right through to the installation and after sales care.

“The entire team at CDE has included us every step of the way and completely exceeded our expectations,” Chapman said.

“Since the new wash plant has become operational, there has been an ease in production bottlenecks. The plant’s flexibility in configuration has allowed us to develop new high-grade products such as a Thermal Resistivity (TR) Sand. We’re excited to show this new offering to the market.”

The 200TPH plant taking centre stage at the open day comprises CDE’s M-Series M4500 modular wash plant, an AggMaxTM scrubbing and classification system, an AquaCycleTM high-rate thickener, and a filter press sludge dewatering system. It also incorporates CDE SmartTech, a plant management app that enables customers to better understand their plant’s performance, schedule maintenance and easily order parts.

The open day takes place on Thursday 11 April, from 9am to 4pm. Registration is mandatory.
