What is sand washing machine?
Sand washing machine, also known as sand washer machine and sand washing machinery, is a washing machine for sand cleaning (artificial sand included).
It is widely used for washing materials in sand factories, mining, construction, transportation, chemical, water conservancy and hydropower, concrete mixing plant and other industries.
The washing can remove impurities covering the surface of the sand and destroy the water vapor layer of the coasted sand to facilitate dehydration and improve sand washing efficiency.
According to customers' washing condition, FTM machinery has produced four types of sand washing machines：wheel type sand washing machine, wheel sand washing and recycling machine, spiral sand washing machine and spiral sand washing and recycling machine to meet their diverse production needs.
Various kinds of sand washing machines
Comparing to other kinds of sand washing machinery, wheel type sand washing machine has a wider using range and lower price. So next, we will focus on the wheel type sand washing machine.
Main functions and advantages of sand washing machine
The sand washing machine can process materials with a size of 0-30 mm, clean the dixed in materials.
Advantages of sand washing machine:
- 1 The bearing is Isolated from the water and materials which can avoid premature damage caused by pollution and rust.
- 2 The processing capacity is large and the equipment covers a small area, so the requirement for the working site is small.
- 3 There is a small loss for materials and high cleaning efficiency during sand washing, which can fully meet the requirements of high-grade materials.
- 4 Long service life. Screen is the main wearing part which is easy to replace.
- 5 Production cost is low, because the machine is nearly no need to repaired.

Application areas of sand washing machine
For its distinctly unique advantages in sand washing, sand washing machine has been used widely in many fields.
- 1 In river sand mining. Sand washing machine not only can remove the impurities, but also can recycle the fine sand.
- 2 In the sand production line. During the artificial sand making process, stones are crushed for several times, and this process would bring about some grit powder. So, after sand making, the product needs to be sieved and washed.
- 3 In mineral separation industries. Sand washing machines are used to separating the ore powder for later use.
- 4 In hydropower plant. Sand washing machine mainly used for washing.
- 5 For precast concrete factories' use. Washing and dehydrating the sand materials always need to use a sand washer machine. Precast slab made of these produced materials would have better performance.
In short, whether it is a sandstone production line, a beneficiation production line, or a building material production line, sand washing machine plays an important role in it.

How to wash sand?
The electric motor runs slowly with the impeller after decelerated by the belt, decelerator and gears wheel. The sand materials flow into the washing tank from feeding launder, roll with the impeller, and grind with each other. The impurity covered the sand is washed away.
At the same time, the strong water flow will take away waste and low-weight wastes from the washing tank. Then the clean sands are lifted by gears. When it goes up slowly, the water begins to drip through the mesh and fall back in the washing tank. Finally, the sand is discharged from the rotary impeller, and the washing is finished.
On the one hand, the mud is removed from the sand; on the other hand, the water can be recycled.
Sand washing machine working process
Structure of sand washing machine
The wheel type sand washing machine is widely used in the sand production line. It is composed of feeding, driving structure, impeller and washing tank.
The washing tank is on the bottom, while the feeding part is on the one side of it, the impeller is lying over. The impeller is driven by the driving structure in operation, sand is finally discharged from the gear, then the sand is clean.
The output of the sand washing machine mainly depends on the size and number of impeller, and the number of gears in the impeller. The bigger the impeller's diameter is, the higher the efficiency is.

Operation and maintenance manuals
As we all know, all machines need to be maintained in the use process. Once the machine misses the best time for maintenance, the damage to itself is immeasurable, and the sand washing machine is no exception.
The sand washing machine is an important machine for sand washing. To improve the production efficiency, well maintenance is needed.
- 1 Be sure to test the machine before your first use.
- 2 Do not overload the machine during the run-in period. Regular maintenance should be carried out according to the manual.
- 3 Regular bearing maintenance is required. The bearing is an important part for the washing machine, and easily being damaged, so normal operation and periodic maintenance will prolong the service life. It is suggested that the bearing lubricating oil should be exchanged every three months, and if necessary, cleaning the bearing with clean petrol or kerosene is also suggested.
- 4 Increase anti-freezing measures. Be sure to change the suitable type of engine oil, fuel oil and antifreeze to keep the machine in order.
- 5 Stop and inspect immediately to avoid more damages when the machine is in abnormal working conditions.

Good maintenance habits are conducive to the normal operation of the sand washing machine, which not only reduces the failure rate and maintenance costs but also prolong the service life and improves production efficiency. Therefore, regular maintenance is very important for the normal operation of the sand washing machine.
Regular maintenance can make machines work longer, but the maximum service life of the machine is determined by the manufacturer and the quality of the materials. Therefore, when purchasing a machine, be sure to choose a large-scale manufacturer with guaranteed quality.
