Company to unveil new Combo wet-processing solution to the global market at bauma 2019
CDE have confirmed that they will be introducing their new Combo all-in-one wet-processing plant on at bauma 2019 (8-14 April). The patented Combo wet processing system is a technological response to the challenges faced by materials producers and is tipped by CDE to reshape the wet processing industry’s landscape.
A turnkey solution that delivers in-spec washed products from a wide range of feed materials, the plant can be used in the construction, C&D waste recycling, industrial sands, mining and environmental sectors.
It has been designed with a focus on transferring greater reliability and efficiency benefits to customers. With all essential processes being housed on a single chassis, the Combo system operates as an interconnected and pre-assembled unit, which incorporates an integrated control panel with a single point of operation.
Designed as an ultra-compact washing solution that requires minimal civils and pipework, operators can now easily relocate their plant across sites or to remote locations.
Kevin Vallelly, director of engineering at CDE, said: ‘Our new Combo is the world’s first wet-processing system with integrated water treatment. For the customer, its bespoke, pre-determined design reduces the overall footprint on site compared to traditional processes. Pre-wired and pre-tested before dispatch, the plant is built for rapid assembly and set up, and can start processing material within days of arriving at the site.’
Mr Vallelly continued: ‘Throughout the design process, our engineers focused on access for maintenance and on optimizing the lifespan of the plant. The Combo provides safe and superior access to all areas, and in line with our ‘Do it safe’ ethos, complies with all relevant ISO standards.
‘The robust design is complete with premium wear liners, which will remain operational and efficient for over 20 years. This represents a significant return on investment for our customers.’
Described as a ‘pre-determined’ solution to help boost plant utilization, among the many benefits of the Combo wet-processing system are its customer-focused design and accessibility features for maintenance. Patented swivel access to the pump, designed for single-operator use and ease-of-access for routine maintenance, is another defining feature of the Combo plant.
Materials processing is a harsh working environment and the new Combo washing system features components in areas of high-wear to minimize the mechanical fatigue cycle of the plant.
A common area of fatigue, a result of weld stress over time, is on screens which traditionally use welded connections. These screens have been succeeded by the patented Infinity Screen, resulting in greater durability and prolonging the operational life of the plant.
To maximize output for the customer and the commercial value of their aggregates, CDE’s ‘transfer point technology’ – the material transfer points between different stations – has been utilized on the Combo to eliminate high operational wear zones.
