Sand and Gravel Washing Water Treatment GN Solids Control
Over 8 billion tons of gravel and sand are required world widely in different areas. The washing is very important for the extraction of sand and gravel.This process creates a large volume of polluted waste water. Using the separation equipment like decanter centrifuge for cleaning sand washing water and gravel wash water is popular in many places.

WASTEWATER TREATMENT. Washing sand and aggregate results in the discharge of dirty water from wet screening decks sand screws or sand classifiers. The wastewater typically carries fines out to a series of settling ponds. While this is the most common method of treating wash water fines it is not the most sustainable method.
Aggregate gravel and sand dredged or excavated from quarries and open mines often go through multiple processes particularly washing and dewatering that benefit from the use of coagulant and flocculant chemistries. Many appli ions for sand and construction aggregate require these materials be free of fines or impurities so they are rinsed
Water recycling and filtration for quarries Aggregate
The complementary CDE AquaCycle range enables userfriendly water management on site with a thickener system that recirculates up to 90 of the waste water from the sand/gravel washing plant immediately for reuse. As a welcome bonus the AquaCycle comes as a neat compact solution that can easily be added on to the sand washing plant.
Treatment of Sand and Gravel Cleaning Water Centrifuges
The system consists of two components: sand treatment and washing water treatment. Flottweg decanter centrifuge Z92 has been in use for 17 years. The purified wash water is returned to the system. As a result the sand mill was able to reduce the fresh water requirement from 350 m/h to around 20 m/h. Learn more about the results in this video

Sand Washing Sand and Gravel Cleaning Water Treatment Machine
Sand and Gravel Washing Water Treatment. Sand has a wide range of uses. Therefore there is a large demand for sand worldwide. However sand washing plants generally store large amounts of sludge with ultrafine particles or clay ultrafine powder. If the sludge is allowed to be discharged directly into rivers or ponds it will cause significant
