Easycrete Ltd is a family-owned and independent ready-mix concrete supplier. They moved to a new facility in 2015 and as a result have increased the volume of ready-mix concrete batches up to 300m³ daily. Each day their fleet are required to be washed out.
The Overall Objective
Easycrete required a suitable solution to separate sands and gravels from the cement and wash water. When separated it enables Easycrete to reuse the sand and stone during concrete grout manufacture, reducing waste and meaning only the separated cement fines are sent to landfill as a dry solid.
Siltbuster installed one of its Concrete Reclaimer units to separate the material and recover waste. Since installation the plant has recovered circa 4.5m³ of sand and stone each week, which previously would have been sent to landfill and an extra cost.
