Crushers has redesigned its TS-522 TDR track portable screening plant to include a rinser.
The company says this gives mines and quarries the convenience to screen and wash materials, such as aggregates, simultaneously for end-use applications, including concrete and asphalt production.
The machine sorts and washes as many as three sized and one oversized products at once, making it suitable for medium- to large-scale operations.
The unit processes 200-300tons/hour (181.4-272tonnes/hour) and features three decks with nine spray bars along the top deck and eight each on the middle and bottom decks.
The spray bars’ heads are said to efficiently and effectively remove dirt and debris from material, and technicians can rotate the spray bars to change the angle at which the water hits the material, which can be done to help hold aggregates on the screen longer or force them through the screen media.
IROCK designed the TS-522 TDR, which is powered by a Caterpillar C4.4 engine, to include a rinse box at the top of the unit that features two additional spray bars. The spray bars pre-soak material to facilitate faster and easier removal of tough mud and clay as material reaches the screen decks.
