42 • ROCK products • April 2019 EQUIPMENT & TECHNOLOGY SCREENING & SIZING Wet processing equipment designer and manufacturer CDE has announced plans to introduce its new Combo all-in- one wet processing plant to the global market at bauma 2019. More than plant machinery, the Combo wet processing system is a technological response to the chal- lenges faced by materials producers and is tipped to reshape the wet processing industry's landscape. A turnkey solution that delivers in-spec washed products from a wide range of feed materials, the Combo can be used in the construction, C&D waste recycling, industrial sands, mining and environmental sectors. It has been designed with a focus on transferring greater reliability and efficiency benefits to customers. With all essential processes being housed onto one chassis, the Combo system operates as one interconnected and pre-assembled unit, which incorpo- rates an integrated control panel with one single point of operation. Designed as an ultra-compact washing solution that requires minimal civils and pipe- work, operators can now easily relocate their plant across sites or to remote locations. Kevin Vallelly, director of engineering at CDE, said: "Our new Combo is the world's first wet processing system with integrated water treatment. For the customer, its bespoke, pre-de- termined design reduces the overall footprint on site compared traditional processes. Pre-wired and pre-tested before dispatch, the plant is built for rapid assembly and set up, and can start processing material within days of arriving at the site." He continued, "Throughout the design process, our engineers focused on access for maintenance and on optimiz- ing the lifespan of the plant. The Combo provides safe and superior access to all areas, and in line with our 'Do it safe' ethos, complies with all relevant ISO CDE Debuts 'World's First All-In-One Wet Processing System' standards. The robust design is com- plete with premium wear liners, which will remain operational and efficient for more than 20 years. This represents a significant return on investment for our customers." Described as a "pre-determined" solu- tion to boost plant utilization, one of the many benefits of the Combo wet pro- cessing system is its customer-focused design and unmatched accessibility fea- tures for maintenance. Lower power consumption compared to existing technology available on the market passes economic benefits to the customer who can process higher volume of materials through an efficient plant with reduced operating costs. Patented swivel access to the pump, designed for single-operator use and ease-of-access for routine maintenance, is one of the defining features of the new Combo. Materials processing is a harsh work- ing environment, which is why the new Combo washing system features components in areas of high-wear to minimize the mechanical fatigue cycle of the plant. One common area of fatigue, a result of weld stress over time, is on primary screens, which traditionally use welded connections. These screens have been succeeded by the patented Infinity Screen, resulting in greater durability and prolonging the operational life of the plant. To maximize output for the customer and the commercial value of their aggregate, CDE's 'transfer point tech- nology' – the material transfer points between different stations – has been utilized to eliminate high operational wear zones.
