Desert Aggregates Gets Modern with New Wash Plant
Desert Aggregates is a brand new operation that started in 2019 and includes a Guardian Horizontal Screen and a Spirit Sand Plant. The company plans to run one million tons per year to produce paving materials.
Desert Aggregates chose the Spirit Sand Plant over others because of its versatility. The dewatering screens help produce material with lower water content, allowing the company to sell their products quicker.
A majority of the water is recycled to help save on water costs. Lastly, the hydrocyclones put the fines back into the sand to be used for paving material instead of sending them to the pond as waste.
