CDE discussed the challenges alongside JPC ReadyMix and one of the key challenges was water supply, therefore a wash plant solution was unviable. 

JPC ReadyMix were experiencing high fines content in their feed material, ultimately losing valuable product which could be removed and sold.

Due to a lack of water supply to the plant, they required an alternative solution to support the increase of output for their plant. 



The solution was a sand production plant that did not use water, therefore an air classification system was introduced. 

This is the latest installation for CDE in the Gulf region where an air classification system was the only available option for the customer. “For operators facing the problem of high fines content in the feed material the Sirocco offers a viable alternative to washing” says Ruchin Garg, CDE Regional Manager, “Simple dry crushing or screening will not effectively tackle this problem which is why the Sirocco has enjoyed considerable success in recent years. The Sirocco air classification system has been proven to effectively achieve this and given the water supply issues faced by JPC ReadyMix, this was the ideal solution."

"The Sirocco presents an opportunity to increase the quality of sand we produce where we thought washing was the only option - an option that was closed to us due to lack of water at our site. The results from the Sirocco are very good: it is like washing without the water."
Mohammed Alamin, Batch Plant Manager, JPC ReadyMix


The new system from CDE Global is producing sand for use in the production of ReadyMix concrete at an adjacent concrete batching plant. 

The main success of the new plant lies in the effective removal of unwanted fines present in the feed material. 

Ruchin Garg adds: "An additional processing phase was required in order to ensure the production of consistently clean concrete sand."
