Common faults and solutions of screw sand washer

In the sand washing plant, a variety of sand washing machines are used, among which the screw sand washer is the most common. The screw sand washer can remove the impurities covered on the surface of quartz sand, and destroy the water vapor layer wrapped in sand particles, so as to play the role of efficient cleaning. Screw sand washer in the process of work will inevitably appear some fault problems, the following is the common fault problems and the corresponding solutions.
