Edge Innovate's new TRM516 trommel
Edge Innovate’s new TRM516 series trommel was unveiled at the Northern Ireland firm’s recent Global Dealer Open Day.
With numerous screens and drum types available, the TRM516 series is said to provide high flexibility and is the perfect option for end users who are constrained for space. Thanks to design features such as the 4.87m long drum, the TR516 is able to produce top-quality fine materials such as compost, gravel, sand and topsoil with ease. Furthermore, because these materials can spend a greater amount of time in a longer near 5m drum, TRM516 operators will, says Edge, be able to achieve enhanced screening results.
The TR516 series will cater for a wide range of applications, whether it is industries such as the aggregates, skip waste management, and those wishing to process industrial and demolition waste.
The new trommel’s Pressure Transducer Technology sees the drum and feeder work together to prevent overloading. Hydraulic pressure being used to drive the drum is constantly monitored. If it is too high, the feeder will slow down automatically. If the pressure is still too high, the feeder will slow down again to an eventual stop. Once the pressure in the drum begins to drop, the feeder will speed up again automatically.
When designing the TRM516 trommel, Edge looked at the question of the end fines conveyor type machine versus the Side Fines Conveyor design. By engineering a very compact end conveyor machine, the company has kept the advantage of a side conveyor product with all the advantages of the end conveyor offering, ultimately giving the customer the best of both worlds.
Innovatively designed for fuel efficiency and low operating costs, the TRM516 can also be easily transported from site to site.
