Parnaby Cyclones is a family-owned business that has designed, manufactured, and installed washing plant and equipment for the mining, quarrying, and mineral industries all over the world since 1973. Installations ranging from full washing plant with closed loop effluent treatment systems, both modular and mobile, to individual pieces of stand alone equipment.
An early Parnaby wash plant.
The Parnaby process includes a combination of washing, separating, and de-watering as part of a continuous closed loop automated system. As well as the coal preparation industry, this extensive process and design knowledge has now been applied to other waste and recycling industries including:
- Automotive Waste
This has enabled Parnaby Cyclones to use their separation technology to help improve and increase efficiencies for their customers over existing dry processing methods.
Coal Washing Plant
Parnaby Cyclones provide a wide range of both mobile and modular washing plant for the coal preparation industry. Parnaby Cyclones is a long established family business, founded back in 1973 by Derek Parnaby who developed the world famous ‘Parnaby Process’ for minerals separation using barrels and cyclones.
Over the intervening years the company has developed a wide range of both mobile and modular coal washing plant for the preparation and separation of different grades of coal, the recovery of fine coal particles and the treatment and disposal of effluent.

Glass Washing Plant
Parnaby Cyclone’s Glass Washing Plant is a wet process designed specifically to process difficult and highly contaminated MRF Glass. As legislation demands ever increasing glass recovery and recycling there is a requirement for a flexible, high efficient process to allow the maximum recovery of clean glass from the MRF sector.
Glass recovered in a typical MRF (Material Recycling Facility) is generally very contaminated.The Parnaby Glass Washing Plant is designed specifically for high capacity, highly contaminated MRF Glass with low glass loss, typically <100um.

Automotive Waste Washing Plant
Automotive Waste Washing is the processing of ASR (Automotive Shredder Residue) or also known as SLF (Shredder Light Fraction) which is the by-product from the recycling and recovery of valuable metals from both commercial and domestic vehicles.
The Parnaby closed loop separation and recovery system can be used in the Automotive Waste Washing industry to wash and separate out various ferous and non ferous metals and plastics ready for resale, turning a waste into multiple high value products streams.
