UltraWASH Modular Wash Plants

Modular Wash Plants, such as the McLanahan UltraWASH, are assembled from containerized washing modules and produce up to five products, including three clean aggregate and two washed sand fractions. Additional modules can be added as needed to create a complete wet processing plant that is flexible enough to meet any production need.

With a shorter lead time than stationary plants, Modular Wash Plants arrive on-site almost fully assembled in containerized modules. The modules are quick to set up and easy to assemble, so you can begin production in a shorter time frame compared with traditional plant construction methods.

Why McLanahan UltraWASH Modular Wash Plants

McLanahan’s UltraWASH Modular Wash Plants are produced by the leading manufacturer of wet processing solutions, which means you are getting the very best the industry has to offer – all in one quick-to-install, easy-to-assemble module.

Because our modules arrive in individualized containers, they are quick to set up and easy to move around for different configurations. This also makes them easy to transport to other sites. Assembling each module is simple and takes less time compared with traditional plant construction methods.

McLanahan has sold more stationary sand plants than any other manufacturer, and our equipment is trusted around the globe. With McLanahan modular washing solutions, you can be sure you are getting the most reliable, highest performing equipment that offers the maximum product quality at optimum yield.

How UltraWASH Modular Wash Plants Work

Arriving on-site in containerized modules, each modular washing solution takes minimal time to install and set up. Installation requires lifting the pre-assembled modules out of their shipping container, setting them in place, erecting any desired walkways, and connecting the water and electrical hoses.

From there, depending on the module, material will be fluidized and washed, rinsed, sized and/or dewatered with McLanahan’s world-renowned washing equipment to remove any deleterious materials, dust or coatings, and reduce moisture content to produce a stackable product.

When combined together or with UltraSCREEN, UltraSCRUB and UltraCRUSH solutions, you can create an entire wet processing plant to produce various types of aggregate and sand products. Modules can be added or removed as the application requires, providing you with the flexibility to produce the highest quality products from any type of deposit.

Popular Applications for UltraWASH Modular Wash Plants

The McLanahan UltraWASH can produce up to five different products, including three aggregate and two sand products: a fine sand fraction and a coarse sand fraction. These modules are ideal for producers with multiple sites, as they can easily be packed up and shipped from one processing location to another without needing to duplicate equipment.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are the advantages of modular washing solutions compared to stationary plants?

McLanahan modular washing solutions offer the same world-class washing technology we supply in our stationary plants but in containerized modules. This allows for shorter lead times, quick setup and ease of transport if producing at multiple locations or one very large site. 

The modules also provide flexibility if production requirements change or if your deposit requires more advanced washing. Modules can easily be added or removed to accommodate a variety of applications or site needs.

How long does it take to set up the modular washing module(s)?

The modular washing module(s) will arrive on your site in a container(s). From there, it takes just a few hours to remove the module(s) from the container(s), set it (them) into place, connect the water and electrical lines and attach any walkways. This ease of setup allows you to begin producing in a quicker time frame compared with traditional plant construction methods.

Disassembly is just as quick and simple when you need to move your production from one site to the next. McLanahan modular washing solutions provide the flexibility to take your production capabilities to the next level with our industry-leading design, ease of transport and quick setup.
