Consistency is perhaps the most important element within this market sector where customers demand that the highest specifications be regularly met. To this end Whitemoss test all sands on an hourly basis during production. Root zone and top dressing are batch tested daily and random samples are regularly sent to independent laboratories.
Consistency, however, is not the only measure of specialist sand; the correct specification is crucial and golf sands offer little room for error.
To maintain this level of customer satisfaction while increasing production, Whitemoss decided to invest in a CDE washing plant for its main production facility near Crewe. The plant would have to achieve tight output requirements for its complete range of sand products.
A long consultation period was then initiated with CDE fully investigating Whitemoss’ requirements, ultimately leading to a 100 tonnes/h (sand output) installation.
This unique CDE system offers precise sand grades via full PLC control. The operator simply chooses the required specification from a pre-programmed selection and the plant automatically adjusts the output within minutes, changing the pinch valve timings and cyclone diversions as required. While this may sound complex the system is actually surprisingly compact and efficient. Pipework and valves are kept to a minimum while extensive use of hot-vulcanized rubber linings helps to reduce wear. There are very few moving parts within the system and nothing is required to operate while submerged. In addition, all elements are highly modular to facilitate inspection and maintenance.
The CDE solution is very agile putting Whitemoss in control at the touch of a button. Units can be easily modified or changed in the long term should the feed or output requirements change dramatically or last minute.
