Why are Spiral Sand Washers the Most Used?

Spiral sand washers are the most used in the market. In 2021, they accounted for more than 60% of the global market share. Such high demand is attributed to myriad benefits of spiral sand washers over the wheel type.

Spiral sand washers have high cleaning efficiency and consume low power. In addition, they are easy to clean and maintain, and have fully enclosed transmission. Also, high end-use spares for them are easily available in the market.

As such, market players are introducing newer compact models such as hydro cyclones in the market. Hydro cyclones are as efficient as traditional washers but also eco-friendly, which means that they consume less water for each sand washing cycle. Many end users are adopting this product because of its low water consumption characteristic.

Thus, demand for hydro cyclones is anticipated to increase, which, in turn, will support the spiral type sand washer segment in expanding at a CAGR of close to 5% during the forecast period.

sand washer market end use

Which End Use Holds Lucrative Avenues for Sand Washer Manufacturers?
