MIMICO is in the business of delivering results for their quarry customers. This comes about by way of our supreme industry expertise backed by a world class suite of equipment from the industry’s leading brands.

New to New Zealand, and providing a solution for sand production and fines recovery, the Spirit Sand Plant includes a cyclone and dewatering screen to classify and produce saleable sand product that meets customer specifications. The life of a pit or quarry can be drastically lengthened by adding classifying and washing equipment to your application.

“The Spirit Sand Plant helps operators remove silts, clays and crusher fines from valuable sands, transforming low grade material into a premium product ready to go to market,” said Garth Taylor, MIMICO Crushing and Screening Business Manager.

“With features like urethane lined cyclone, adjustable dewatering screen angle, urethane screen sidewalls to aide in dewatering of product and 8-10% product moisture content the Spirit Sand Plant is the ideal choice for premium sand production.”


Key features of the Spirit Sand Plant:

  • Includes cyclone, dewatering screen, sump and pump to classify and produce saleable sand.
  • Quick setup with a small operational footprint.
  • Limited operator intervention needed to get accurate product classification.
  • Stop loss of quality fines to pond or thickener tank.

Dewatering Screen

The dewatering screen helps achieve product moisture content as low as 8%. The deep bed design removes more moisture more effectively than competitor models, giving the operator the highest possible percentage of saleable product. The urethane sidewalls of the dewatering screen are lined with screen openings, creating a larger surface area for drainage. Screen attributes include a rigid 12mm A36 steel welded frame, steel compression springs, recycle water line, and dual electric vibrators.


The Spirit Sand Plant’s Helix Cyclone offset feed design eliminates turbulence by providing efficient slurry flow. This improved efficiency enables more precise classification and reduces component wear. Maintenance is made easier by providing better access to feed components. The design allows operators to avoid removing the vortex finder or discharge piping.
