McLanahan Modular Wash Plants
With a long history of designing, manufacturing and installing modular wash equipment, McLanahan’s line of UltraWASH modular wash plants are the latest line from the company. Engineered to include all McLanahan equipment that helps producers meet their process requirements, the UltraWASH provides the reliability, simplicity and efficiency that producers need from a modular plant.
All equipment that is part of the UltraWASH plants, including the vibratory screen, hydrocyclones, dewatering screen, sump and pump, is based on the company’s well-known, field-proven designs. UltraWASH plants provide a quick, easy-to-install processing system.
These modular wash systems are ideal for producers facing criteria such as planning permits, multiple locations, short-term deployment, or an unknown/variable feed stock (e.g. C&D waste streams applications) that make implementing a customized, fixed processing solution difficult.
Currently available in six sizes and configurations, the UltraWASH can produce up to three aggregate products and up to two sand products. There is a single process water feed point, as well as a single effluent discharge point.
We currently offer several additional configurations and add-ons to the UltraWASH, including:
- Single or dual sand product
- Feed preparation (log washer, blade mill, coarse material screw)
- Attritioning module for specialty sand production
- Organics removal module
- Water treatment with high density or paste style thickener
- Filter press for complete wastewater treatment
Ease of maintenance
McLanahan knows the importance of uptime, so the UltraWASH is designed with ease of maintenance in mind. Our pump trolley service platform allows the pumps to slide out from underneath the chassis for greater access when performing maintenance activities, such as changing the impellers or replacing casing liners.
We also offer a retractable feed conveyor to allow easier access to the feedbox when it comes time for servicing. Rather than lifting personnel to the height of the feedbox to perform maintenance, we bring the feedbox to them. With the push of a button, the conveyor will retract and the feedbox will be brought closer to ground level, making it both easier and safer for your personnel to maintain. An upgrade to a track-mounted feed conveyor is also possible thanks to our partnership with Anaconda equipment.
Another maintenance feature we’ve included in our UltraWASH Modular Wash Plants allows easier access to the aggregate hood. Simply remove the section of grating from the walkway behind the aggregate hood, slide the aggregate hood back and reattach the grating in front of it. This creates a platform for accessing inside the aggregate hood when needed.
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 than a day to get the whole plant up and running.
While there are a number of modular plant solutions available in the market, McLanahan is one of the only companies offering both custom and modular washing solutions. This, combined with years of processing design knowledge, provides unmatched industry expertise in providing the correct solution for your application.
