Log-Washer Specification in Mineral Washing Applications
CDE has released a white paper on the mineral washing applications of log-washers.
As the requirement to process increasingly difficult materials grows, the specification of log-washers has become more prevalent. With the exploration of deposits containing higher levels of clay contamination than has previously been the case, log-washers enable operators to consider the processing of materials which would otherwise not be viable.
As well as application in the processing of materials such as crushed rock to produce construction aggregates, the increase in construction and demolition waste recycling applications, particularly in the UK market, has resulted in an increase in the specification of log-washers. The high level of contamination within construction and demolition waste material is the influencing factor here with a requirement to remove a large proportion of lightweight contaminants in addition to clay necessitating the introduction of this attrition technology.
