To remove moisture from a final product or to capture minute particles in the wastewater at the end of the processing system, McLanahan offers a broad range of dewatering equipment to process sands, coal, pulp and paper, concrete, and other minerals and materials. Dewatering most often occurs through processes such as classification, centrifugation, filtration or similar liquid-solid separation processes.

Dewatering equipment often helps processing plants with permitting and regulatory issues. Equipment from McLanahan can help producers create a sustainable environment by reducing the size of ponds and/or the frequency of which they need dredged. In some instances, producers may even be able to eliminate settling or tailings ponds altogether by using McLanahan dewatering equipment.
