BUCTEC

SAND RECOVERY UNIT

Buctec bucket wheel dewaterers are relatively conventional washing units, are used for the recovery of sand / fine materials. Most frequently used in the quarry and sand industries they are also applied to a wide range of washing projects for various minerals and mined materials. coming from
aggregate washing plants.

Whilst they do not offer the same efficiency and separation accuracy of Sandtec systems they do remain an attractive option for many operators:

  • Easy to install

  • Relatively low cost

  • Simple engineering: basic maintenance requirements
  • Well known by operators across the world

HOW IT WORKS

These machines are composed of a main sand slurry reception tank, an Archimedean screw and one or two bucket wheels.

Fines slurry enters the main tank and is then drawn towards the buckets by the screw.

Sand is lifted from the slurry by the buckets which have perforations to allow water to drain back to the tank.
