Silica Sand Washing Plant Price

Our sand washing systems have been employed throughout the world to replace traditional, inefficient sand washing systems such as bucket wheels and sand screws / screw classifiers. These washing systems are employed in the production of specialist sands such as silica sand, golf sand and filter sand for use in municipal waste water treatment.

The sand is washed to remove fine particles. Washing is done by spraying the sand with water as it is carried over a vibrating screen. The fine particles are washed off the sand and the coarse particles are carried along the screen by the vibration. Some processing operations also use what is called an upflow clarifier to wash the sand. An upflow clarifier is essentially a tank where water and sand are continuously directed into the tank. The water washes the sand and the overflow water along with the fines overflow the tank while the washed sand falls by gravity to the bottom of the tank and is sent for further processing.

Silica Sand Washing Application

Washing is the simplest and lowest cost method of cleaning silica sand. In some of the very pure deposits that are void of heavy minerals, high amounts of clay and silt, and no surface staining, washing is sufficient to produce acceptable grade product.

In the process, water is added to the sand and is generally pumped to a cyclone for desliming. The movement of the slurry passing through the pump and pipeline is sufficient to loosen the small amount of fines or clay that are in the ore body. Once the minor amounts of fines or clay have been released from the silica sand they can be removed via a variety of methods.
