Edge Innovate’s new ScreenPro S18 quickly tackles tough jobs

The new ScreenPro S18 from Edge Innovate

The new ScreenPro S18 from Edge Innovate is designed to tackle difficult and demanding applications, including aggregate, construction waste, sand and gravel, soil and organic materials. 

The dynamic 5.4 metre by 1.75 metre two-deck screen of the Edge ScreenPro S18 features interchangeable flip flow and conventional scalper screens to increase flexibility. 

With numerous screen media options and configurations available, the Edge S18 can be utilized as a stand-alone unit or if needed, placed before or after a primary crusher.  

“The Edge ScreenPro S18 is a highly functional, reliable, efficient and easy to operate versatile machine that perfectly complements our other products and will serve to further raise and enhance the profile of the Edge Innovate brand in the years ahead,” said Tom Connolly, Edge Innovate’s Global Sales Manager. 

Impressive design features include, a low-level feed hopper, two or three way split configuration, hydraulic folding discharge conveyors to facilitate the quick transition from operation to transport and a fully integrated power unit with large service access. 

A user-friendly control system with sequential start/stop functionality provides ease of operation safety.  

The Edge ScreenPro S18 hopper measures 1,400 mm wide, and includes a variable speed feeder with forward and reverse functionality.

A large feed opening ensures optimum flow of material to the scalping screen. Edge’s intelligent load management system constantly monitors conveyor load pressures and regulates feeder speed resulting in superior uptime by eliminating material overload and ensures optimum screening production at any given time. 

Hydraulic folding hopper extensions allow for side loading while a folding hopper rear door provides even further loading flexibility.  

High-stroke scalping screen

At the heart of the S18 is an Edge-designed, high-stroke scalping screen with a screening area of up to 18.3 square metres and a wide variable working angle to suit an array of applications. The aggressive high stroke action results in superior material separation and a generous screening area ensures precision fines separation. To ensure minimal downtime, the screenbox encompasses hydraulic lift-up functionality for a quick and efficient mesh exchange process, supported by full access walkways on both sides of the screen.

Customers can select a wide range of screen media options including woven mesh, punch plate, finger screens and bofor (grizzly) decks to achieve a variety of final grain sizes and to process different feed material.

Flip flow screen

Adding to the versatility of the ScreenPro range is its ability to interchange the scalping screen with Edge’s flip flow screen. This flexibility, combined with numerous screen media options and configurations, allows the S18 to process a wide range of materials and to tackle screening applications that other conventional screens cannot, such as incinerator slag or wet, damp and sticky material. 

Thanks to an intuitive design, the plant is fully customizable both in the field and from the factory with side conveyors that can be reversed or discharged on the same side or converted to a two-way split without any additional parts required. As well, the ScreenPro S18 can be road transported in these set up modes.

To meet the demands of recycling applications, the ScreenPro S18 can be equipped with both over-band magnets and magnetic head drums for the extraction and recovery of ferrous metals. 

The oversize discharge conveyor features a heavy duty 1,600 mm chevron belt as standard with a combination of impact bars and rollers absorbing the impact from loading material, thus prolonging the life of the conveyor belt. The oversize discharge conveyor can be lowered to 5 degrees to provide superior access to the lower screen deck and aids in the screen media exchange process.

The Edge ScreenPro S18 also offers added remote functionality for improved operator efficiency and safety. All major functions on the S18 including tracking, feed conveyor speed adjustment, sequential start up and hopper jacklegs can be remotely operated from a safe distance of up to 100 metres or in the comfort of the operator’s cabin. 

ScreenPro power options

Powered by either a Caterpillar or Cummins Tier 4 Final / Stage V ACERT engine ensures the S18 drive system provides the operator with a reliable, durable and fuel efficient screening solution. 

An electric hybrid option further enhances cost savings and environmental benefits, combining the advantages of an electric power unit with traditional diesel/hydraulic power. Utilizing a small onboard diesel engine for tracking and set up, operators can then connect to an external electricity supply once the machine is in position
