New addition to CDE Global RotoMax Logwasher range

CDE Global add 80-tonnes/h RX80 unit to their range of dual-shaft RotoMax log-washers

CDE Global have added the RX80 to their range of RotoMax log-washers for applications in the construction materials and mining sectors. The new model has a capacity of 80 tonnes/h and can be used for the processing of a variety of materials, such as sand and gravel, crushed rock, and construction and demolition waste material.

The launch of the RX80 follows the introduction of the RX150 model in September last year, and is designed for the processing of material containing high levels of plastic clays which need to be broken down and removed from a feed material.

‘The RX80 has been installed on a number of projects and is typically employed following initial screening of the feed material – more often than not this is done by our M2500 mobile washing plant,’ explained Kevin Vallelly, CDE product manager for the RotoMax log-washer.

The RX80 has 118 high cast chrome paddles mounted in a spiral arrangement on dual shafts. The specification of the paddles is said to offer superior wear resistance with a processing life in excess of 100,000h, while the spiral arrangement of the paddles has the advantage of reducing intermittent shock loading and reducing the power requirement for the RotoMax.

‘The specification of the paddles is key to the success of the RotoMax with the high cast chrome offering more than five times the wear life of other materials,’ said Mr Vallelly. ‘The effect of this is to offer operators a much lower cost per tonne of processed material.’

The RotoMax range also includes a hydraulic clutch as standard, to allow for start-up under full load, while the fitting of a temperature sensor affords additional protection to the bearings at the rear of the RotoMax. ‘All of the models in the RotoMax range are designed to ensure ease of maintenance and ensure the operational time of your plant is maximized,’ Mr Vallelly concluded.
