Readymix (WI) acquires state-of-the-art wash plant
Local concrete producer, Readymix (West Indies) Limited, recently announced the purchase of its new Sand and Gravel Wash plant, which has been installed at the company’s site in Valencia. The machine, which was acquired through Terex Washing System’s (TWS) distributor, Duo PLC, was brought in to replace the company’s previous barrel type washing plant.
Speaking on the new purchase, Ravi Singh, quarry manager at Readymix said: “This new plant is highly efficient and definitely more cost effective for processing. The maintenance costs on the old plant were extremely high while this equipment has substantially lower maintenance costs, maximum efficiency and productivity and ultimately allows us to be more competitive in the market. The newly designed plant also facilitates a cleaner, more desirable product.”
The news of Readymix’s purchase attained global attention and even landed the company a feature in UK-based magazine Machine Movers’ June/July 2013 edition. The article captured the views of Ravi Singh who sang praises about both the product and the company, which sold it to Readymix.
“DUO and Terex thoroughly studied the product we process; analysing it thoroughly and were able to design a bespoke plant most suited to our needs. In addition, they provided a dedicated team of engineers, sales and aftersales technicians to support throughout the plant installation and commissioning process,” Singh said.
The sand and gravel wash plant performs the action of a high-tech sieve, which is designed to separate clay bound natural sand and gravel deposits into four grades of product: 0-6mm sand, 6-10mm aggregate, 10-20mm aggregate and 20-75mm aggregate. The plant operates at a production rate of 200 tons per hour. Readymix utilises this processed sand and gravel predominantly for concrete and block manufacture.
