Haver & Broecker have reduced set-up time and extended wear life for its new Tyler F-Class portable plant.
The portable plant features a new custom-built chassis equipped with six hydraulic run-on jacks that quickly level the plant, eliminating the need for cribbing. As well, the run-on jacks ensure the chassis stays level during operation, which minimizes equipment wear.
“Portable plants should not only give producers the flexibility to move from site to site or within a quarry,” said Karen Thompson, president of Haver & Boecker Canada. “They should also be fast and easy to set up. We are committed to producing portable vibrating screen plants that possess these qualities, with the same durability, longevity and minimal maintenance as stationary vibrating screens.”
The portable F-Class plant can be set up in less than 30 minutes. The chassis’ hydraulic system raises the vibrating screen to its inclined operating position of about 20 degrees. Takedown is even faster, requiring less than 20 minutes to lower the unit so it can move to the next location.
In addition to run-on jacks and hydraulic walkways, several other features enhance durability and minimize maintenance. These include a new bolted-on suspension that can be removed during operation to eliminate the risk of damage. The chassis is also sandblasted and coated with a heavy-duty finish to improve wear life and rust resistance.
Haver & Boecker’s F-Class portable plant offers as many as three screen decks. Its feed conveyor, cross conveyor and fines conveyor are hydraulically operated for precise material placement.
The plant’s fines chute has a full-width access door that allows users to easily unload material build-up, and an oversize chute features AR liners that are bolted-on for easy replacement.
Furthermore, the F-Class vibrating screen has an advanced double eccentric shaft design, supported by four high-performance, double-spherical roller bearings.
The F-Class is ideal for screening situations that require consistent, load independent performance at constant G-force. Featuring a unique and reliable, proven four-bearing technology, the vibrating screen delivers a consistent stroke, which two-bearing screens cannot provide. With the right media choice, the F-Class virtually eliminates blinding, pegging and material contamination, according to Haver & Boecker.
The F-Class portable plant can be customized to include a crusher and conveyors. The machine is ideal for tough applications, such as scalping and classifying ores, minerals, stones, sand and gravel.
Additionally, Haver & Boecker offers the Pulse vibration analysis program to monitor the ongoing health of vibrating screens through real-time views, logged reports and data analysis. It’s designed by Haver specifically for vibrating screens to catch small inconsistencies before they grow into problems and downtime.
