With more than 180 years providing solutions for the aggregate and mineral processing industries, McLanahan is offering the same field-proven technology to the concrete industry with their concrete washout management solutions. McLanahan’s concrete washout management solutions allow producers to recover coarse aggregate material and sand from cementitious water from mixers.
McLanahan also offers solutions for producers who want to separate fines from wastewater and turn those fines into easy-to-manage solid cakes that can be recycled for other uses, such as base material, or into a paste so thick no further water and solids separation can be achieved. The other by-product of the separation is clean water that can be put back immediately into the processing plant or used to wash out concrete hauling trucks.
In addition, implementing McLanahan’s concrete washout management solutions can help producers eliminate settling ponds, saving producers in time spent handling the ponds and wear and tear on their equipment. Eliminating settling ponds also frees up valuable land space, helps producers meet environmental and permitting regulations, and creates a smaller footprint and working environment.
McLanahan’s concrete washout management solutions utilize proven equipment to be highly efficient and produce less waste. This, along with the costs saved by recycling cementitious water, leads to faster payback and creates a higher return on investment. The ability to produce cleaner sand and recover more of it also allows producers to be more profitable.
