STARCLEAN Meets World Class Silica Sand

On the east coast of Australia’s Cape York Peninsula in North Queensland lies a world-class Silica Sand Mine, with a problem so fine, it needed a touch of STARCLEAN. The silica sand being mined on this site is so fine that it has been a constant problem to contain their carryback problems. The continual loss of material piles up under the conveyors costing both the clean-up process and the loss of precious water.

The project saw PROMET join with ROLCO to install STARCLEAN scrapers on their conveyors. STARCLEAN offers versatile and simple installation possibilities, tool-less blade changes, cleaning and adjusting on the run.

The outcome eliminated the carryback of this fine sand and a client who got exactly what they were looking for. For the first time, the client was able to stand beneath the conveyors without feeling like they were in a sandstorm!

This high-performing solution is simple and it works.

This site has the highest production of silica sand of any mine in the world. A simple investment in STARCLEAN has reduced the costly clean-up and allows more sand to make it to the port for export.
