 Washing the construction sand removes the silt, dirt, organic matter, and unwanted chemical components. This is a must to maintain the quality of sand as per the required specification.

They are manufactured in various sizes having different sand-washing capacities.

To double up the process, as you can see in fig., a double screw type variant is also available, which is preferred for the larger construction site.

The slope of the machine should be adjusted to get the sand of the required quality.

2. Bucket-wheel type sand washing machine :

The container tank is supplied with water, and the sand which should be washed is fed into this container. A belt conveyor is used for feeding the sand in the machines. These machines have a higher-end washing capacity. The wheel bucket rotates in the container, agitating and washing the sand, as shown in the image below.
