In the process of washing sand, the often used sand washer is spiral sand classifier and bucket wheel sand washer. In addition to the performance of the equipments, users will also pay attention to the production cost and consumption. Water resource has become a factor that must be considered in the sand washing process. Users are more concerned, how much water does a sand washer use to wash a ton of hill sand? The general operation requirements of spiral sand washing machine is that the ratio of sand and water is 1:1 or 1:1.5, wheel bucket sand washing machine is 2:1 or 4:3, of course, this is not fixed, the specific water consumption is to be considered according to the actual situation. It is affected by a variety of factors, the main reasons are as follows:
- Equipment model: there are many models of sand washer, the external size, processing capacity and one-time pass amount of different equipment are different, and the requirements for water consumption are also different. Treat a ton of sand, the large the model, the greater the water consumption.
- Working efficiency: in the process of sand washing, the speed of impeller and screw blade can be adjusted, the working efficiency is also different, and thus the water consumption is different.
- Equipment quality: the equipment quality is high, the structure seal is good, does not appear the spot which leaks the sand, is not easy to appear the breakdown, the equipment service life is long, the efficiency is high, saves the water resources and the cost, conversely, will increase the water consumption and the production cost.
- Requirements for finished products: the particle size, powder content and mud content of hill sand are all different, and users’ requirements for the proportion of sediment in the finished products are also different, which will affect the amount of water consumption. The higher the content of sediment, the higher the cleaning degree and the larger the water consumption.
