Quarry operators had the chance to see the benefits of washing crusher dust first hand during an open day held by CDE at Ireland-based Gleeson Quarries’ Laffansbridge site. Visitors to the County Tipparary quarry had the chance to see CDE’s new M2500 mobile washing plant in action.
“The material we are washing at Gleeson Quarries was previously being stockpiled as a waste material as a result of the inherent levels of silts and clays,” explained CDE sales manager for Ireland Eunan Kelly. “The washing plant we have installed is ensuring that this waste material is being effectively processed to create commercial grade sand and aggregates.”
The washing plant at Gleeson Quarries has been in operation for 5 months and has processed approximately 100,000tonnes of material in that time. Gleeson produces a wide variety of aggregates for the construction sector and is one of the leading suppliers of Clause 804 and Clause 810 road materials to the local authorities for the many road building and improvement schemes that have taken place in the local area in recent years.
