Haver & Boecker introduce the F-Class screen
Company launches new portable plant designed for faster set-up and longer wear life
HAVER & Boecker have launched the Tyler F-Class portable plant that includes several new technologies to improve set-up time and extend equipment longevity in quarrying and mining operations.
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. The run-on jacks also 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, they should also be fast and easy to set up,’ said Karen Thompson, president of Haver & Boecker Canada.
‘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.’
Producers can move and set up the portable F-Class in less than 30 minutes. The chassis’ hydraulic system raises the vibrating screen to its inclined operating position – usually 20. 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 offer enhanced 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 for optimal wear life and rust resistance.
Haver & Boecker’s F-Class portable plant offers up to 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, whilst the oversize chute features bolt-on AR liners for easy replacement.
With its advanced double eccentric shaft design, supported by four high-performance, double-spherical roller bearings, the F-Class is designed 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 is said to deliver a consistent stroke that two-bearing screens cannot provide. This, together with the right media choice, virtually eliminates blinding, pegging and material contamination.
The F-Class portable plant can be customized to include a crusher, conveyors or other components for enhanced productivity. The machine is suitable for tough applications, such as scalping and classifying ores, minerals, stones, sand and gravel.
Approved applications are eligible for Haver & Boecker’s Uptime 36-month warranty, featuring a full-service approach to equipment optimization – from parts inspection and equipment assessment to screen media evaluation.
Additionally, Haver & Boecker offer the Pulse vibration-analysis program to monitor the ongoing health of vibrating screens through real-time views, logged reports and data analysis, with the aim of catching small inconsistencies before they grow into problems and downtime.
