Going back to the beginning of the CDE story, we are introduced to the compact sand washing plant - now known as the EvoWash.
The main issues we noticed operators in the USA having were the loss of good-quality fine material and a sand product that was not being efficiently dewatered.
We highlight the control gained by the compact washing plant EvoWash over a sand screw - our ability to implement systems which can specify and control the finished product cut point. We want to help our customers to achieve an accurate cut point and remove unwanted fines without sending good material to the ponds - and operators are facing a real challenge using their existing technologies.
We also provide a range of equipment for water treatment and recycling technologies such as our AquaCycle thickener and Filter press to allow operators to recycle more than 90% of the water used and reduce both the costs and the environmental impact of their operations.
The latest addition to our unique product portfolio is our patented range of Infinity screens - a revolutionary range of elliptical, circular and linear motion screens with application in the sand & aggregates, mining, industrial sands and C&D waste recycling sectors.
Your CDE team in North America is led by our President, Kevin Kelly, who brings a wealth of experience to our growing team since joining in 2017. Kevin works with the North America leadership team to continue to build our presence and profile in the USA and Canada and is supported by growing Business Development and Technical teams who look after our expanding customer base, both new and existing.
This expansion has resulted in the opening of two offices in the USA, our first in Cary, North Carolina, and our North America Center of Excellence which opened 2018 in Cleburne, Texas. The region continues to be a huge focus for CDE, and our growing team and local offices ensure we are well placed to continue serving our customers in both the American and Canadian markets.
The main demand for the USA is within the Industrial Sands and Sand and Aggregates markets, which will be serviced by our sectoral divisions, CDE Primo and CDE Solv. Our North American team continues to showcase the latest innovative solutions that CDE can bring to your business by attending many key North American trade shows and exhibitions, so check out our events page to view the latest North American, and indeed global events at which CDE will be present.
We are committed to supporting and being actively involved in the development of the industry, we are members of some of the trade bodies in the USA:
We have already installed and commissioned different equipment across the USA, mainly for the Sand & Gravel sector. Last year we held a Demonstration Event at the pit Metroplex Sand & Gravel (Fort Worth, Texas) where we had one of our installations in 2015.
“We were introduced to CDE at ConExpo in Las Vegas. Shortly thereafter, a member of our team visited the GS Materials Plant in North Carolina. We were immediately impressed by the plant’s ability to manage gradation and silt cuts - producing golf course spec sand the first pass. With conventional classifying equipment and sand screws this is difficult to say the least. ” Said Keith Newell, President of Metroplex Sand & Gravel.
At ConExpo 2014, we launched our new modular washing plant, the M4500 to the global market and the our specialists concluded that this new modular plant would be the main piece for the project to be commissioned and installed at Metroplex Sand & Gravel in Fort Worth, along with a selection of our portfolio products to meet the finished product requirements.
The new product launched, M4500, consists of a modular wash plant which has a maximum feed capacity of 450 tons per hour via direct feed and integrates a feed system, aggregate screening, sand washing and stockpiling on a single chassis allowing for rapid deployment on site, while also minimizing the space required to accommodate the plant. And when required, the plant also accepts crushed material directly to the feed boot from a transfer conveyor.
We were able to improve on the various issues associated with the customer’s former plant. The primary goals detailed by the customer were to produce in-spec finished products in a single pass, reduce environmental footprint through lower water consumption, and perform all functions in a smaller footprint with lower operating heights. We checked off all these boxes for the customer.
