The local aggregate industry is
reaping the rewards of Readymix
(West Indies) Ltd newly acquired
Sand and Gravel Wash Plant, which
has signalled an increase in produc-
tivity as well as a marked improve-
ment in the quality of aggregate pro-
The benefits of the Wash Plant to
Readymix and its customers include
an improved level of quality. The plant
is designed to produce four grades of
aggregate, which are essential com-
ponents in concrete batching, the
process in which ingredients are com-
bined to make concrete. Readymix not
only produces concrete, but quarries
locally for the components present in
The prime function of the wash
plant is to act as a sieve, separating
the aggregate from unwanted silt and
The plant has the capacity to "accu-
rately and cleanly" sift and separate
these aggregates from the unwanted
material, increasing the overall quality
of the product to customers. The four
grades of aggregate produced are 0-
6mm sand; 6-10mm aggregate, 10-
20mm aggregate and 20-75mm aggre-
Readymix s quarried material is not
only used in concrete batching, but
is sold to companies that require sand
for their operations. A dewatering unit
is used get a dried sand product for
immediate use, benefitting on the
scale by not paying for a high moisture
saturated sand product.
Another key benefit of the plant is
its time and cost effectiveness. Pro-
duction levels are high---200 tons an
hour---while maintenance costs are
low. Compared to Readymix s previous
plant, this new system has much lower
maintenance costs, maximum effi-
ciency and productivity and allows
the company to be much more com-
petitive in the market.
Linked to the time-efficiency fac-
tor is the plant s capacity to be oper-
ated as seamlessly as possible. Also
of great importance is that as tech-
nology advances, companies commit
themselves to environmental-friend-
liness. The plant adheres to this
through the inclusion of settling
ponds, which are strategically placed
near the system. Dirty water from the
plant, which contains silt and clay
materials, is sent to a series of settling
ponds which are set up so that the
silt drops to the bottom and clean
water rises over the top, producing
clean, reusable water.
This is the largest project Readymix
has embarked on for a long time and
the most successful in terms of pro-
duction. The team involved in the
project has been extremely impressed
with all aspects of the wash plant,
from conception through to the end
