MWS¬ hosted a live working demonstration of the SandStorm 516 and AggStorm 150 working in tandem
Following the huge success of its first UK open day, McCloskey Washing Systems says it is planning to host another UK exclusive open day event in London at the beginning of 2018.
While further details about the event will be revealed soon, McCloskey says the recent open day highlighted new washing and classifying equipment for quarrying and recycling applications.
The event, with a turnout of 150-plus end user customers from all parts of the UK and from overseas, was held at the Nuneaton, county Warwickshire facility of leading recycling company Crown Aggregates, which has taken delivery of the first new McCloskey wash plant in the UK, supplied by Max Innovate, MWS dealer for the UK.
Fintan McKeever, managing director at Max Innovate, said: “The initial interest in the open day was phenomenal, and we quickly realised that we were going to have to spread the event over two days to accommodate all those who wanted to attend.
“The wash plants provide Crown Aggregates with clean in-specification material that they could not achieve by dry screening: this will increase their sales and grow their customer base. The SandStorm and AggStorm received lots of positive feedback with many visitors impressed with their innovative compact size, with maximum access to serviceable areas and the quality of the product produced.”
MWS¬ hosted a live working demonstration of the SandStorm 516 and AggStorm 150 working in tandem as a shared solution. Together, they process quarry scalpings with a high clay content to produce three aggregates and two sand products.
The open day marked the launch of the new AggStorm 80 and 150 modular log washer range, which is designed to operate as stand-alone units or to integrate with the SandStorm range of wash plants.
In this application, the customer is making 10mm, 20mm and 40mm aggregate, while the SandStorm 516is producing 0-2 and 0-5mm grades of sand while producing plus 40mm rinsed stone.
Ben Frettsome, MWS sales and applications, manager said: “Reaction to the plant was exceptional and we received immediate orders as a result. Customers walked around the machines, watched them in action in a demonstration show and discussed the features and benefits.”
Sean Loughran, McCloskey Washing Systems director, said: “We are thrilled that the open day was such a success and we extend our sincere thanks to all at Crown Aggregates and to everyone who joined us.”
