Sand washer is of great importance to sand making industry, just like stone crusher in construction industry. However, around the globe, the amount of natural sand and gravel extraction is becoming less and less, which leads to the insecurity of the sand operators. Under these circumstances, manufactured sand has become increasingly popular for both consumers and sand manufacturers. Obviously, such factors as dramatic urbanization and the restriction of environmental laws and regulations limit the exploitation of natural sand.Although the composition of sand varies according to different locations and resources, it comes into being due to the natural decomposition of rocks. In general, the natural decomposition process takes millions of years. Due to physical power in nature such as the movement of earth crust and mountains, rocks gradually break down into small chunks. Then the combination of acid rain and petrifaction turns rock chunks into smaller particles. Blown by wind or carried by water, such tiny particles exist everywhere. After the sand is extracted from such places as river banks and mountains, it is loaded onto a lorry. Then the sand is transported to either a surrounding sand manufacturing plant or target consumers far away for further sorting. The raw material at a sand manufacturer is kind of slurry composed of clay, sand, and water. The material is firstly dumped into a huge perforated screen or a blade mill to separate sand from other items, depending on the amount of impurities.Sand washer is used to get rid of such foreign matters like silt and clay to prepare sand for further processing. It is designed to have an integrated capability to screen, transfer and wash incoming sand. The basic structure of a sand washer is a chassis, a sand screen, a screw conveyor and rotary bucket elevatorsAt the present, Fote Heavy Machinery has set up three state level machinery research institutes, and we also produce various kinds of crusher price, heavy hammer...
