CDE’s  R4500TM was created to handle the most troublesome materials, including heavily clay-bound mineral and waste materials, offering high-energy screening of material and oversize removal before it enters the AggMaxTM logwasher for scrubbing and classification.

The AggMaxTM technology is engineered to operate in the toughest of conditions to maximize product yield from the most abrasive and clay contaminated of feedstocks. Combining feeding, scrubbing, screening, and sizing on one chassis, the AggMaxTM is suitable for a variety of material streams – sand &aggregates, overburden, scalping’s, C,D&E, soils utility arisings, muck away and trommel fines.

The CFCUTM provides an effective system for removal of lightweight contamination from fine material fraction. Its unique features provide sand classification by mass & density where water is used to suspend particles at the cut point. The CFCU also provides the added benefit of being able to tailor the final sand gradation specific to its end use. Transforming the most difficult feedstock and waste streams into high quality concrete specification sand.
