This impressive 1200m2 size of materials washing specialist CDE Global’s stand offers an indication of the company’s global ambition.
The firm is launching this week a number of new inclined screens from its Infinity range – which now boasts 14 models.
Launched in 2014, the range has undergone a major expansion to include new horizontal sizing screens; grizzly screens; dewatering screen and fine sand screens for specialist applications, in addition to the existing range of inclined screens.
The key advantage of the Infinity screen design is that it offers a stronger, lighter screen which requires significantly less power to run. CDE Global’s patented trilogy side wall construction also eliminates welds from the construction which serves to maximise the life of the screen.
Of the move to expand the Infinity screen range, Peter Craven, CDE Global head of marketing, said, “A lot of it has come from initially trying to increase the capacity of the M2500 [mobile washing plant]. We wanted to put a three-deck screen on it as well as a new dewatering screen. The new dewatering screen eliminates wells from the construction site. This is why they are called Infinity, as they should last for ever. Also, all the screens are galvanised as standard, with most it’s just an option.”
As well as being included on the series of modular wash plants that CDE manufacture, the Infinity screens are also available as individual units. Craven said this is a market where CDE believe there is significant potential for it in the years ahead.
The Infinity screens have been a key part of the M-Series mobile washing plants, R-Series primary screening units, EvoWash sand washing plants and AggMax portable logwasher for a good deal of time.
Also on show on CDE Global’s prominent stand is its latest modular wash plant includes a new feed arrangement, the latest incarnation of its M2500 mobile washing plant and an upgraded AggMax portable logwasher. The company also has an EvoWash sand washing plant with a new screening system for fine screening applications.
CDE Global recently announced that it is creating 110 new jobs – including many engineering positions - over the next six years as part of a €8.65 million investment into the Northern Ireland-headquartered business.
Craven added, “We are backing ourselves to keep growth going and resourcing in advance. We manufactured 250 machines in 2015 and plan to take that to 750 by 2020.”
