Haver & Boecker launches new F-class portable plant

Published by
World Cement,

Haver & Boecker has launched the Tyler F-class portable plant, which includes several new technologies designed to improve setup time and extend equipment longevity in quarry and mining operations.

Featuring a new, custom-built chassis, which is equipped with six hydraulic run-on jacks to quickly level the plant, the portable plant eliminates the need for cribbing. Minimising equipment wear, the run-on jacks also ensure that the chassis stays level during operation.

Producers are able to move and set up the portable plant in less than 30 minutes. The hydraulic system of the chassis raises the vibrating screen to its inclined operating position, which is usually 20°. Requiring less than 20 minutes to lower the unit in order that it can be moved to the next location, take down of the plant is even faster.

Further to run-on jacks and hydraulic walkways, several other features minimise maintenance and enhance durability. This includes a new bolted-on suspension, which can be removed during operation to eliminate the risk of damage. In addition, the chassis is sandblasted and coated with a heavy-dust finish for optimal wear life and rust resistance.

The portable plant also offers three screen decks and the hydraulically operated feed conveyor, cross conveyor, and fines conveyor allow precise material placement. The fines chute is also equipped with a full-width access door, allowing for the easy unloading of material build-up. An oversize chute features AR liners that are bolted on for easy replacement.

With an advanced double eccentric shaft design, the F-class vibrating screen is supported by four high-performance, double spherical roller bearings. The company has stated that the F-class is ideal for screening situations that require consistent, load independent performance at a constant g-force. With features such as unique, reliable, and proven four-bearing technology, the vibrating screen offers a consistent stroke that cannot be provided by two-bearing screens. With the right media choice, the F-class is able to practically eliminate blinding, pegging, and material contamination.

It is also possible for the plant to be customised to include a crusher, conveyors, or other components for enhanced productivity. The machine works well for tough applications, such as scalping and classifying ores, minerals, stones, sand, and gravel.

Haver & Boecker also offers the pulse vibration analysis programme, monitoring the ongoing health of vibrating screens. This is done through real-time logged reports and data analysis. This programme was designed by the company with the specific target of vibrating screens, aiming to catch small inconsistencies before they develop into problems and downtime.

“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.”

Haver & Boecker Canada is a leading provider of screening, washing, and pelletising technology. The company aims to deliver the best of these technologies to the mining, aggregates, minerals, cement, and food industries.
