Monday 24th March 2014, Dungannon, Northern Ireland – Terex Washing Systems (TWS) hosted a USA premiere of the Terex® Aggresand™ wash plant in North Carolina, following the huge success of the Ireland launch in September 2013. The event took place at the Carolina Sunrock facility in Kittrell, North Carolina, where TWS worked with Mid-Atlantic distributor, Powerscreen Mid-Atlantic, to stage the 3-day event.
Sean Loughran, Director of TWS, commented, “This is the first machine of its kind in this market and the interest has been phenomenal. The event has proved to be a real success and we are already witnessing increased activity in this marketplace.”
The Aggresand ™concept, the newest modular aggregate and sand washing plant, was introduced to the world of aggregate washing late last year. The Aggresand ™ plant showcased at Kittrell, NC, featured a 200tph twin sand plant compared to the first Aggresand™ plant launched in Ireland, which had 120tph twin sand plants. TWS can offer two sand plant options, 120tph or 200tph, dependent on the customer’s application and the sand to stone ratio. The modular wash plant brings together aggregate and sand washing on one modular chassis, producing three aggregates and two types of sand on one machine.
Sunrock Quarries willingness to try innovative products and processes, coupled with TWS distributor, Powerscreen Mid-Atlantic, afforded TWS the opportunity to host the event. The local geology of Sunrock Kittrell Quarry is granite, which made the demonstration more significant, since high wear issues are more prevalent in this situation. Poly screens were opted for in place of the typical woven wire screen mesh and the Aggresand™ wash plant was more than capable of dealing with this raw material.
More than 45 TWS distributors and more than 150 customers from throughout America attended this exclusive event, where they saw for the first time ever a live demonstration of the Aggresand™ wash plant. Elaine Donaghy, Marketing Manager of TWS, commented, “The USA premiere of the Aggresand™ wash plant proved to be another successful showcase. Reaction to the new plant was exceptional and we received immediate orders as a result. The Aggresand™wash plant is proving to set TWS apart from other providers in the market and is revolutionizing the wash plant market by introducing innovative solutions and continuing to serve our customers’ needs and demands around the world.”
This system sets itself apart from the competition by combining aggregate washing and screening with sand processing on a modular chassis. Garry Stewart, Applications Engineer with TWS, commented, “The market is really embracing theAggesand concept with extensive orders following the show. Feedback from customers suggests that acquiring planning for these modular set-ups is easier compared to large static installations. The rapid set up time, high levels of serviceability and the advanced control system are also proving major hits with our customers.”
Mark Keenan, Sales Manager, Powerscreen Mid-Atlantic, commented, “We at Powerscreen Mid- Atlantic Inc, were happy to be able to showcase the new Terex Aggresand™ wash plant here in North Carolina and we appreciate all the assistance our good customer Carolina Sunrock provided to help realize the event. I believe the Aggresand™ plant will be a very popular machine in the U.S. market. The ease of setup and installation, due to its modular design, enables us to provide the customer with a complete turnkey solution, which can be moved from one site to another in a short space of time. We feel like Terex Washing Systems has really set themselves apart from the competition with the modular concept and quality design. We look forward to installing their products with many of our customers.”
Terex Washing Systems recently announced details of the new larger wash plant within the Aggresand™ range at CONEXPO, the Aggresand™ 206, due to be officially launched at Hillhead in June 2014.
