Schenck Process launches new exciter

Published by , Assistant Editor
World Cement,

Schenck Process has launched a new high-performance, high-availability exciter, which is on show at MINExpo: the DF704 exciter model.

With the highest exciter force output on the market at 1,000kN, the DF704 not only delivers exceptional performance but is also highly economical. The largest Schenck Process vibrating screens and conveyors will now typically need only two exciters rather than three.

High availability makes the DF704 ideal for continuous flow operation. The use of spherical roller bearings allows for shaft bending and reduces single-edged bending loads, providing a long service life and extremely smooth operation. The bearing life of the DF704 is at least 20,000 hours at the intended operation speed. Moreover, serial production has cut the delivery lead time for new machines, while the Schenck Process exciter exchange and refurbishment service eliminates the risk of prolonged downtime.

Maintenance is limited to an oil change or an oil-level check at the prescribed intervals.

“The DF704 is the latest development, taking advantage of the roller bearings from well-known suppliers such as FAG and SKF. It is the largest exciter in the directed force range, which now covers forces outputs from 43kN all the way up to 1000 kN / 112.3 t, fulfilling expectations in even the toughest mining environments,” added Gordon Ashley, Chief Engineer, Screens, Schenck Process Australia Pty Ltd.
