MWS held its first North American open day at H&H Stone in Illinois
McCloskey Washing Systems
(MWS) has used its first North American open day to highlight new washing and classifying equipment for both quarrying and recycling applications.
The open day event was in fact held over two days at H&H Stone in Bolingbrook, Illinois on June 20-21.
MWS hosted a live working demonstration of the Sandstorm 620 wash plant, processing limestone secondary crusher screenings to produce three spec concrete/asphalt aggregates and one spec concrete sand product.
The product from the Bolingbrook plant is sold to ready mix companies and precast companies. The ready mix companies use it for foundations in homes and driveways while the precast companies use it to manufacture precast panels for distribution building and concrete precast buildings. The sand plant also has the capability to blend all or some of the fine sand into the coarse sand to maximize the required grading.
Sean Loughran, director, MWS, 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."
H&H Stone was established in 2013 when owner Dave Hamman and a partner purchased the limestone quarry in Bolingbrook and a sand and gravel pit in Boone County, Illinois. The company took delivery of the first Sandstorm 620 in the USA following its debut at CONEXPO/CON-AGG 2017 in Las Vegas.
As the first wash plant from MWS in the USA, the Sandstorm’s installation was managed and closely monitored by US Equipment, the MWS dealer for the state of Illinois. US Equipment is a provider of material processing & handling equipment in the area, specialising in the construction and aggregates industries.
MWS says the two-day event at H&H Stone was “a huge success”, with a strong turnout of dealers and customers attending from across North America. Throughout the open day, a team of McCloskey engineers, sales and applications Managers were on hand to give guided machine tours and application discussions. Attendees had the opportunity to inspect the machines after the demonstrations and learn more about the features and benefits.
MWS designs and manufactures a full range of modular, mobile and static washing equipment for the aggregates, waste & recycling, mining and construction & demolition sectors.
