FM Bucket Wheel

The Terex® FM Bucket Wheel range of sand classification systems are highly efficient dewatering units.
The unit removes silts, slimes and clays from sand to produce up to 2 saleable products in applications including concrete, mortar and asphalt sands, quarry dust/crushed fines, lake and beach sands, silica sand, golf course sands, filter bed sands, recycled materials and iron ore.
The range combines a dewatering bucket wheel(s), a centrifugal slurry pump, hydrocyclone(s), a collection tank and a dewatering screen on a single chassis.

  • Can recover 1 or 2 grades of sand from wet feed or bolt-on boiler box option for direct dry feed
  • Maximum recovery of saleable material through the removal of silt, slimes and clays below 75μm (200 mesh)
  • Variable speed bucket wheel processes 80-90% of material, reducing wear on the rubber lined pumps & cyclones
  • Major reduction in fine material discharging to the water management system, thus reducing recovery cycle and cost
