The BKT-EARTHMAX SR 53 is an all steel radial tire specially designed for loaders, dozers and low profile dump trucks (LPDT) operating in severe rocky conditions.

World of Asphalt and AGG1 Aggregates Academy & Expo returns to Nashville, Tenn. from March 25 to 27.

More than 400 exhibitors will be on display at the popular show, which features a lineup of the top manufacturers and service providers of the asphalt industry.

Below is a small sampling of what visitors will see. 

Booth: 353
BKT, one of the world’s leading manufacturers of off-highway tires, will have various promotional giveaways at its booth, including baseball caps, Bik & Tik coloring supplies, EARTHMAX keychains and soccer balls.


The following products will be featured: 

EARTHMAX SR 41: An all steel radial tire for articulated dump trucks, loaders and dozers. Thanks to its all-steel structure and special block pattern, EARTHMAX SR 41 provides excellent resistance against punctures and an extended service life. In addition to long working hours without downtime, the tire ensures extraordinary comfort. 

EARTHMAX SR 45: An all steel radial tire specially designed for rigid haul trucks. EARTHMAX SR 45 is the ideal tire for all operations requiring high traction.

EARTHMAX SR 53: An all steel radial tire specially designed for loaders, dozers and low profile dump trucks (LPDT) operating in severe rocky conditions, including underground operations and scrap yards. The deep L-5 tread and the cut-resistant compound provide an extended wear life in addition to excellent traction and stability.

Haver & Boecker Niagara
Booth: 923

Haver & Boecker Niagara’s Niagara F-Class vibrating screen.

Haver & Boecker Niagara’s Niagara F-Class vibrating screen features new technology for simplified maintenance combined with maximum performance and longevity. The updated design retains the technical benefits the original F-Class is known for, such as improving performance in material stratification and reducing blinding and pegging. 

The vibrating screen is primarily manufactured with vibration-resistant lockbolts instead of the traditional welding. Lockbolts are more effective at maintaining structural integrity during operation while making vibrating screen maintenance more convenient, safer and cost-effective. Additionally, the company redesigned the flat deck models to create the largest amount of open area possible.

Haver & Boecker Niagara have also redesigned the flat deck models of the new F-Class to create the largest amount of open area possible for modular screen media. Featuring replaceable polyurethane anchors, the new high open area modular deck is suitable for virtually any pin and sleeve modular screen media. 

The F-Class is available with a variety of configurations and upgrades, and can be used in both stationary and portable applications.

Booth: 923


MAJOR offers FLEX-MAT Modular PLUS, which is specially designed to withstand harsh screening conditions with the most abrasive materials, such as granite and basalt. The advanced screen media offers all the benefits of FLEX-MAT — high open area, efficient stratification, no blinding or pegging — combined with a new and improved wear life comparable to polyurethane screen media. Additionally, the media offers up to five times longer wear life than traditional woven wire and produces a cleaner retained product. 

The efficiency-enhancing design of all FLEX-MAT screen media, including the modular PLUS series, allows the wires to vibrate independently from end to end under material contact. The high frequency of the wires — 8,000 to 10,000 cycles per minute — adds to the vibration of the screen box — 800 to 900 cycles per minute — to speed up material separation and passing. 

The new PLUS series is available in the D, S and T series. FLEX-MAT Modular PLUS screen media panels are available in either the patented OPTIMUMWIRE or 304 stainless steel wire.

Martin Engineering
Booth: 305
Martin Engineering delivers tough, tested and innovative material handling solutions, backed by ndustry experience. Specializing in belt cleaning, belt support, belt alignment, belt sealing, dust management, flow aid solutions and more, Martin offers products specifically suited for the aggregate industry. 

Products on display include: 

Martin Engineering N2 Position Indicator: Martin Engineering’s intuitive N2 Position Indicator allows for remote monitoring of the belt cleaner blade via Martin’s proprietary mobile app, indicating remaining blade life, notifying when re-tensioning or replacement is required and warning in the event the blade is no longer in contact with the belt. The N2 Position Indicator will collect data and provide information on any belt cleaner utilizing a Martin blade.

Canoe Liner: Installed inside conveyor transfer point skirtboards, Martin Manufactured Canoe Liners absorb impact and abrasion and creates a dam to shield the sealing system from the weight of the material load, prolonging the life of the seal. Martin manufactured Canoe Liners feature a steel plate molded inside the urethane to prevent bond issues. Liners are also stackable to line higher drop chutes.

Martin Air Cannons: When material is hung up in a hopper or head chute of a conveyor transfer point, it can force a shut down during shifts to get the process back online. Instead of using hammers or lances to clear material, Martin Air Cannons offer another approach. Air cannons provide a controlled blast of air to clear material blockages and maintain proper material flow.

McCloskey International Ltd.
