Terex Finlay is launching the 883+ triple shaft screen in Q3 2018
’s 883+ triple shaft heavy duty screen is due to go into full production in September 2018.
The latest addition to the Northern Ireland-headquartered manufacturer’s 8-Series line up, the 883+ triple shaft model is said to be ideal for a variety of dry and difficult sticky applications including quarry, mining, sand and gravel, construction and demolition debris and recycling applications.
The heart of the 883+ triple shaft is the new triple shaft screenbox, featuring two full size 16’ x 5’ screening decks. The screenbox’s triple-shaft design employs an oval motion stroke to generate an aggressive screening action, reducing plugging and blinding over the screen decks to ultimately provide a quality product with high tonnage output.
Terex Finlay says that even when under heavy load during its testing phase, the new triple shaft screenbox has consistently produced high tonnages across a range of difficult and challenging applications.
Some of the in-built features of Terex Finlay’s current 883+ screener have been retained, including the ability to hydraulically raise the discharge end 500mm to facilitate easy and efficient media changing.
A company spokesperson said: “We are introducing three new design features in this new plant; firstly we have increased width of the fines conveyor to 900mm wide. Secondly, we have increased the hydraulic power to the fines conveyor and thirdly we have set the engine to run at a lower speed. Each of these features have been incorporated to maximise the overall operational efficiency of the plant.
“We are pleased to confirm that these updates will be carried across into our standard 883+ platform and will be a feature on plants configured with either our standard screenbox or Spaleck screenbox option.”
