Spotlight on CDE’s G:Max marvel


This year CDE celebrates eight years of operation for its tried and tested G:Max dewatering system.

Ideal for a range of solids dewatering duties, G:MAX has been installed in almost a dozen countries around the world.

This year, a G:Max will be brought into stock for the first time and exhibited at Australasia’s key industry event No-Dig Down Under, where CDE will showcase a complete machine on its stand.

Of the G:Max’s success CDE Australasia General Manager Daniel Webber said the success of the dewatering system about quality and longevity of the product.

“Since our first unit hit the market in 2017, we’ve constantly been working with our customers to refine our design,” Webber said.

“While we will never cease chasing improvements, we’ve really developed a system that is extremely robust, minimises maintenance and down-time while maximising solids recovery and dewatering efficiency.”

Webber said the product is easy to use, with many companies using the CDE G:Max as a first step into inhouse dewatering.

“The fact that the system is very straight forward to expand upon; with the likes of aggregate scrubbing and beneficiation, and slimes densification via our AquaCycle and filtration technology is also a huge bonus,” he said.

“It gives a clear pathway for our system to grow with our customers, increasing recycling rates and profitability as dewatered solids are put to their highest value end use.”

“It was easy to install and commission and since that day it has never missed a beat,” Peter Knight at PipeVision said.

“Being in New Zealand we are about as far away as you can get from CDE’s base in Northern Ireland, so reliability is hugely important for us.  We’ve also had great support from our local Pro-Man and the CDE Customer Care team.”

The G:Max also forms the back bone of Evergreen Environmental’s new HydroVac Dewatering and Resource Recovery facility in Dandenong, Melbourne.

Evergreen General Manager Matt Davey praised the reliability of the product.

“We’ve really put the G:Max through its paces in this plant, and it’s great to know that when we try new things we’ve got reliability at the heart of our plant,” he said.

“Matched with the CDE Aquacycle thickener for water clarification and recovery, alongside a new Decanter Centrifuge our operation is really hitting its straps as demand for our services grow.”

CDE is all about high end quality tools and how to push the limits of technology.

Davey said the company is committed to scaling up its Dandenong operation. Not only in terms of capacity and the types of waste it can take, but also maximising the recovery of reusable construction materials.

“We have a strong three-year plan and CDE are helping us to achieve our goals,” he said.

The new 2023 model G:Max was on display at the opening of CDE’s new Australasia headquarters on 7 September, 2023. It was then displayed at No-Dig-Down Under in September at the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre.

With a strong installation base across Australasia, CDE is also happy to arrange live site demonstration visits for the system.
