Sandvik Mining & Rock Technology, Mobile Crushers and Screens, has introduced a number of highly productive additions to its product range over the past year. One of the most recent has been the new ‘modular’ hanging screen for Sandvik’s latest range of mobile 2 Series crushers.
Sandvik’s new double-deck modular hanging screen enables customers to produce two screened products and recirculate any oversize material back into the crusher. Some of the benefits of this new modular hanging screen include its ability to be adapted quickly for operation in open or closed-circuit configurations.
It features a patent-pending adjustment system that enables the screen to be quickly reconfigured to produce one single-sized finished product, or two-sized finished products, depending upon the customer’s demands at that time. The screen can be hydraulically repositioned to create a single deck hanging screen using the top deck as a breaker deck without the need to remove the screen mesh.
The oversize conveyor may be hydraulically rotated 90° for material stockpiling of up to three products on the ground, or 180° for removal. The tail section can be raised hydraulically to give improved ground clearance for transport when loading or unloading.
Sandvik says the complete modular hanging screen can be installed or removed from the plant in less than 30 minutes without the need for any lifting equipment on site. The hanging screen option delivers multi-functionality as a 1, 2 or 3-way split screener offering unrivalled flexibility to customers.
