Aggregates sand & gravel

Aggregates like gravel and in particular sand, because of their applications, need to be washed to recover fine particles and eliminate the silt which adheres to their surfaces. Usually, the water used for sand washing can be recycled by using settling ponds in which heavier particles settle down and where they are collected from the bottom to be stocked.

Recovery and storage of these materials, which must be disposed of with excavators, trucks and personnel at a later stage, have significant costs for aggregate production industry, also due to the fact that it is necessary to dedicate a large area to these operations.

Matec filter press allows to get rid of settling ponds and produces dry cakes easy to stock and dispose of, it also recovers water which is particularly important in dry areas.
