Mclanahan highlights European presence

McLanahan Corporation, which recently opened a UK office and which launched its UK and European presence at the Hillhead event, has produced its portable frac sand plant.
Partnering with CEMCO, a designer and manufacturer of crushing equipment, the plant was completed in early 2012, and is capable of processing 150tons/hour (136tonnes/hour) of raw feed, thus allowing customers “good deposits to start producing more quickly.” McLanahan says that producing a McLanahan frac sand plant in portable form offers an additional option for customers and an affordable means of production as it is easily moved from one deposit site to another.
The plant contains McLanahan’s processing equipment, including sumps, pumps, a flat bottom classifier, cyclones and a split-deck dewatering screen, and is mounted on two separate chassis with a free-standing feed sump for the ease of customer feed. The flat bottom classifier chassis has a mounted hydraulic system designed by CEMCO to ease raising and lowering the plant with minimal assembly.
The electrically-controlled plant can be set up and operational in approximately 16 hours.
