AGG1 2024 is Just Around the Corner and Eagle Iron Works will be There

For over 150 years, Eagle Iron Works has offered customers reliable, easy-to-operate equipment to handle washing and classifying applications. Eagle Iron Works is excited to be returning to the Nashville Convention Center to display at AGG1 from March 25-27, 2024. During AGG1, EIW will showcase its line of end-to-end washing equipment and be on hand to discuss how the company can optimize your operation.

Stop by Booth 736 to learn more about EIW’s newly expanded product line, including fines recovery units and tailings management equipment. Visitors can also speak with EIW sales experts about the solutions available for their applications and to see how EIW can help maximize their profit. A full set of wear components and educational maintenance information will also be available in the booth to help visitors learn more about increasing the life of their machines.

“EIW has been successful for the last 150 years because we design and build the heavy-duty equipment that the industry needs. As we prepare for AGG1 2024, we are excited to highlight our line of end-to-end washing equipment, including the Falcon Sand Plant and the newly developed Hawk Fines Recovery Plant,” said Tim Miller, Business Line Director – EIW.

The Hawk Fines Recovery Plant captures fine particles down to 400 mesh from process water in aggregate waste streams and discharges a drip-free solids material that is conveyable and stackable. It can be used alone or as a first step in a larger tailings management system incorporating additional liquid-solid separation equipment.

EIW’s Hawk Fines Recovery Plant offers several benefits. First, it reduces the amount of solids destined for the settling pond. This reduces the frequency that ponds need to be cleaned out, reducing labor and equipment costs.

Second, the fine solids that are recovered from the process water in the waste stream can potentially be sold as a byproduct for pond lining or backfill material, adding an additional revenue source.

 Finally, the Hawk Fines Recovery System can be used to prepare the waste stream for water recycling in downstream equipment, such as Thickeners and Filter Presses, which is extremely beneficial in areas where water is scarce or expensive to buy.

How Hawk Fines Recovery Plant Works

The Hawk consists of a Sump, Pump, Hydrocyclones and Dewatering Screen in a modular, compact design. Instead of being sent directly to the settling pond, the waste stream from the aggregate wash plant enters into the Sump of the Hawk Fines Recovery System, from where it is pumped up to the Hydrocyclones. The Hydrocyclones separate the ultra-fine particles and discharge them onto the Dewatering Screen, which removes excess water to generate a drip-free solids material that is stackable and conveyable. A majority of the water and some remaining particles are discharged out the top of the Hydrocyclones. A portion of the overflow is used for sump level control, while the remaining amount is sent to the pond or to additional downstream processing equipment.

Eagle Iron Works has provided aggregate processing solutions for over 150 years and looks forward to continuing to meet the evolving needs of the industry. In this time, EIW has built a reputation for durability and unmatched customer service.
