With specifications becoming increasingly stringent, washing and classifying of aggregate materials is ever increasing. As pits and quarries progress into their reserves, the more easily extracted material is less available, often forcing operations, particularly sand and gravel operations, to process material with a greater amount of clay and silt. While some materials may require only rinsing to remove small silt particles, other materials may require scrubbing to remove clay and other deleterious materials.
Processing sand and gravel products for a variety of specific market applications requires the use of different combinations of equipment, which may include portable and stationary washing and screening plants; sand classification tanks and systems; dewatering screens and screws; coarse and fine material washers; blade mill washers; log washers; rotary and vibrating screens; and more. Washing and classifying of aggregate materials is becoming an increasingly important phase aggregate production and part of a larger aggregate production industry that is estimated to have a market size in Canada of CA$2.7B.
