This milestone underscores the team’s commitment to environmental  responsibility in quarry operations worldwide, with their filterpresses processing  approximately 100 million tonnes annually across the globe. 

"Our journey in the design and development of our own filterpresses began in 2019 and  today, we stand as a global leader in delivering complete ‘Feeder to Filterpress’ solutions,"  says Mark Fisher, Business Line Director of Terex Washing Systems. "The evolution of our  filterpress technology underscores our commitment to driving efficiency and sustainability in  the quarrying industry." 

One of the key advantages of the Terex Washing Systems filterpresses is their efficiency in water recycling, which reclaim over 95% of the water used in the washing process,  minimising water consumption and reducing the need for freshwater input. Filterpresses also  aid in waste reduction by producing a dry filter cake waste product. 

This dry cake is easily transportable and can be reintegrated into the quarry or used for other applications. By maximising water recycling and minimising waste generation, these systems help quarry  owners meet environmental regulations and demonstrate a strong commitment to  responsible quarrying practices. Another benefit of filterpresses is improved overall efficiency of the wash plant by  streamlining the water treatment process. By effectively separating solids from liquids, they produce cleaner water for reuse and optimise the performance of downstream equipment. Quality assurance is another significant advantage as filterpresses provide clean, recycled  water to re-enter the washing process, improving the quality of washed sand and  aggregates.

Since the inception of in-house filterpress manufacturing in 2019 at the Terex Washing  Systems headquarters in Dungannon, Northern Ireland, the team has refined its filterpress  technology and integrated it into their comprehensive ‘Feeder to Filterpress’ washing solutions. These systems divert waste from landfills while recycling the water used during  the process, significantly reducing environmental impact, and improving aggregate production for quarry customers. 

Beyond innovation, Terex Washing Systems offers comprehensive global support and service. With 40 distributors worldwide and regional offices in the US, Europe, Asia-Pacific,  and Australia, Terex Washing Systems provides localised expertise and service. Supported by a dedicated technical team and advanced laboratory facilities, Terex Washing Systems ensures optimal equipment performance and sustainability throughout its customers'  operations.
