BUCTEC - SAND RECOVERY UNIT
ROTATION BY SELECTION
The Buctec wheels, sand recovery units, are used for the recovery of sands coming from aggregate washing plants. They are mainly composed of a slurry storage tank in steel inside which a wheel with buckets in perforated steel plates is fitted.
Thanks to its rotating motion, it can recover the sand, partially separating it from the water, and carry it through to the discharge outlet. The bucket wheel can have one or two Archimedean screws that carry the sands through to the centre of the storage tank.
The transmission is by means of a reduction gear unit driven by an electric motor.
