Shreenathji Stone Quarry, a leading quarry owner, and sand and aggregates supplier in Chikhli, Gujarat, is associated with various urban infrastructure projects in the area. As a matter of natural progression, and due to the business foresight of the owner, they have expanded their base to the sand market to cater to the emerging demand for M-Sand in the market.
The company tapped into CDE Asia’s expertise for an efficient sand-washing solution. In fact, Shreenathji has been associated with us since 2018 with its primary investment in Combo X70 (powered by European technology by CDE Asia).
However, for their two crushing units of 120 TPH each at Chikhli and assessing the rising demand for M-Sand in infrastructure projects in Gujarat, the client was ready to take their sand washing systems to the next level. It was at this juncture that our loyal client once again sought our expert counsel to ensure a quality and consistent stream of M-Sand recovery from their units. Combo X150 helped give them washed M-Sand from low-grade VSI stone dust, which proved to be a splendid replacement for inconsistent river sand; it also generated good revenue for the client.
Innovative solutions by CDE Asia soothe client’s pain points
Shreenathji has been a sub-contractor to some of the ongoing prestigious projects of Gujarat like the Surat Metro Rail and the Bullet Train. The need of the hour was to achieve a continuous supply of consistent quality M-Sand from an advanced sand-washing plant. To achieve this, the client wanted to utilize the 0-5mm output generated as VSI Dust from their crushing unit to generate quality concrete M-sand (Zone II) and plaster sand, thereby adding to its top line.
Being an old CDE Asia customer, Shreenathji was aware of our advanced equipment technology that assures superior M-Sand delivery with operational economies. Our officials had a meeting with Jaimin Gondaliya, Director of Shreenathji Stone Quarry, to thoroughly analyze the current situation. After carefully assessing the requirements, we introduced the client to CDE Asia’s latest innovation in the Combo line of sand washing equipment - Combo X150, which is ideal for supplying the finest quality M-Sand.
Feedback from other clients of CDE Asia near Shreenathji’s plant location cemented their confidence in us yet again. As a consequence of our old ties and new found confidence, the Combo X150 plant was commissioned in early 2022.
- A complete solution: Combo X150 from the flagship of the Combo series is designed with eco-friendly technology to produce superior manufactured sand. Equipped for feeding, grading, dewatering, water recycling, conveying, and sludge handling, the plant is an all-in-one solution for quality M-Sand needs.

Says Mr. Jaimin Gondaliya, Director, Shreenathji Stone Quarry, “CDE Asia has been a critical partner since the installation of the first plant. The team delivered the entire project within the stipulated timeline. Combo X150 has redefined the entire experience of producing quality M-Sand.
