TWS debut at Hillhead 2014 with spectacular double bill
The spotlight was firmly on Terex Washing Systems (TWS) as they made their debut at Hillhead – the world’s largest working quarry show. The 2014 Hillhead exhibition proved to be a major success for TWS thanks to tremendous interest in the company’s products. The show provided the stage for the world premiere of the Terex AggreScrub 150 washing unit, the new larger Terex AggreSand 206 washing system as well as showcasing the AggreSand 165 wash plant.
TWS director Sean Loughran commented: ‘The reaction and interest to TWS products and our stand presence was simply overwhelming. The flow of traffic on to the stand was incredible throughout the three days. We had the opportunity to meet with existing satisfied customers, prospective new customers, as well as many of our distributors from around the world.
‘We were delighted to receive a large number of orders throughout the show, which is testament to our commitment to providing enhanced and unique washing solutions to meet customers’ needs and demands.’
Mr Loughran continued: ‘There is an evident economic recovery taking place with a renewed confidence in the industry. Since returning from the show, we have received further orders as well as being inundated with enquiries. We look forward to providing more aggregate washing solutions for our customers around the world.’
The brand new AggreScrub 150 was officially launched and unveiled at Hillhead. This impressive plant is designed to operate both as a stand-alone unit as well as having the ability to seamlessly integrate with the AggreSand. The AggreScrub 150 is designed to deal with stubborn clay-bound material which cannot be removed by rinsing or screening alone.
Central to the development of this plant was modular design, serviceability and functionality, making it quick and easy to set-up and easy to maintain. The plant also includes a range of innovative features including the web-frame chassis design which is easily assembled and is complementary to the AggreSand. The chassis supports the scrubbing hull, the 6ft x 2ft trash dewatering screen, the 12ft x 5ft two-deck rinsing and sizing screen, and has an integrated sump and pump. All walkways are fully galvanized and provide access to all areas of the plant.
TWS also showcased the Terex AggreSand 206 wash plant at Hillhead. It is the larger model of the recently launched AggreSand 165 (up to 250 tonnes/h) model and has greater capacity, up to 400 tonnes/h, comprising of a 20ft x 6ft screen with two- and three-deck options. To date, TWS have installed multiple AggreSand 165 wash plants in Ireland, the UK, parts of Eastern Europe, the USA, Canada, Australia and Austria. Customers are also finding it easier to secure planning and finance for these modular plants as opposed to traditional static set-ups. This is due to the modular design of the plant, which ensures ease of installation and the ability to move it to another site if required.
Customers benefit from the plant’s unique design which includes full containerization of the machine for ease of transportation, rapid set-up time, pre-wired and pre-plumbed plug-and-play componentry, isolated spray bars and a HMI control system. The level of serviceability within the AggreSand wash plant range is said to be unrivalled within the industry with innovative features such as rolling chutes and rolling centrifugal pumps. TWS have also included sensors throughout the machine to provide the operator with information on water pressure, cyclone feed pressure, electrical power consumption etc, making operation and management of the machine highly efficient.
Another unique benefit to customers is the ability of the AggreSand wash plant and AggreScrub 150 plant to combine to provide the perfect solution for customers dealing with recycling applications as well as pit owners with high agglomerations of clay. The innovative, intelligent and user-friendly control system on both plants allows full integration between the two systems through the connection of a single plug-and-play cable.
Through this pioneering control system, seamless communication allows the two plants to work as a single entity with all interlocks, including start-up and shutdown sequences, automatically synchronizing, which further reduces the amount of on-site installation and commissioning required and sets the benchmark in modular wash recycling plants for years to come.
TWS also announced an exclusive UK finance offer at the show, which is available until the end of August. Available through Terex Financial Services (TFS), the offer includes a 0% finance package over 36 months. TWS customers can order their desired washing equipment from an official TWS distributor in the UK until 31 August 2014.

TWS director Sean Loughran commented: ‘This presents a fantastic opportunity for our customers to avail of a low-deposit, 0% finance package over 36 months. This exclusive offer is designed to make TWS machines much more affordable for our customers, helping them to access the finance they need, so they can purchase equipment that will allow them to operate more efficiently and cost-effectively.’
