TWS launch two new machines at Hillhead
Terex Washing Systems introduce the FM Pentium as well as the new and improved AggreSand 206
TEREX Washing Systems (TWS) were delighted to be back at Hillhead last week to launch two new machines to their customers and dealers.
The first in the line-up was a completely new machine with the capability to wash one grade of sand and one aggregate on a single chassis. The FM Pentium is a static sand and aggregate washing unit and the latest machine in the renowned FinesMaster range, which it builds upon with its increased production and versatility.
Comprising a collection tank, centrifugal slurry pump, hydrocyclone(s), and a dewatering screen, the FM Pentium accepts a feed rate of up to 150 tonnes/h of pre-screened material and can produce up to 120 tonnes/h of washed sand.
The second machine launch was the new and improved AggreSand 206. A decade on from the initial development and introduction of the AggreSand family, TWS say they are delighted to bring the new and improved machine to their customers, as the company continues to build upon its existing legacy machines and continues to refine the art of wet processing.
The First TWS AggreSand plant, the 165, was launched back in 2013 and was later followed by the original 206 version. Some of the key features of the new and improved AggreSand 206 include an increased feed hopper size option to allow for greater feed capacity, a redesigned cyclone underflow box and dewatering screen to give much sharper cuts in blending and enhanced end product, and new chassis design that allows the AggreSand to be much more easily integrated with other TWS products.
Moreover, there are now improved access points for easier maintenance together with best-in-class high-grip walkways, allowing safer and easier access to all critical components, as well as additional updated patented maintenance features.
TWS were also delighted to use the Hillhead show to announce details of their ‘Factory Direct’ sales approach in the UK market, allowing for increased collaboration between their customer base and factory experts.
The company’s local after-sales service team ensures quick and accessible support for ongoing operations, installations, start-ups, and commissioning, backed by rapid access to all the TWS engineering and product support expertise and data available at the company’s headquarters in Ireland.
