Eagle Sol-Clay (Soluble Clay) Washers provide an economical aggressive scrubbing unit that falls between the capabilities of the Eagle Coarse Material Washer and the Eagle Log Washer. The Eagle Sol-Clay unit is very effective in cleaning materials that contain large quantities of stubborn soluble clays.
The Eagle Sol-Clay Washer employs intermeshing corrugated paddles that run the entire length of each shaft. As the paddles cut and move the material forward, particle on particle scrubbing is achieved. The softer clays are broken down into a soluble slurry by the abrading and grinding of the harder sound product material. Water can be added to the perforated manifold to assist in the flushing of dissolved materials through the side discharge gates. Material from the Sol-Clay Washer should be followed by a rinsing screen to remove film and residual matter from the product.
