Concrete plant/yard space limitations, tightening storm and process water management rules, escalating waste-concrete hauling and disposal costs, and sustainability-driven water recycling measures are prompting more producers to invest in mix reclaiming and slurry filter press equipment. Concrete Products visits key players in both categories.Read More
Challenges to optimize yard space utilization, step up water and material recycling rates, and lower process-waste disposal costs are driving concrete producers’ adoption of equipment well established in the mining business. Filter presses used in tandem with concrete reclaimers accelerate the water recycling loop and limit landfill-bound material to low-moisture cakes of primarily cement fine composition. Along with the McLanahan Concrete Washout System on the preceding pages, Concrete Products examines additional filter press offerings.
