25, 2012, Valley View, OH – IROCK has introduced the new TS-516 High Capacity
Scalper. The scalper, one of five tracked screener units in IROCK’s lineup,
improves productivity in a range of applications with greater hopper capacity,
larger screens and a wider, oversize conveyor.

IROCK designed the TS-516 so it can be used in a primary crusher circuit for
materials such as construction and demolition waste, iron ore, aggregates,
coal, recycling and heavy rock. It is powered by a 129-horsepower Caterpillar
C4.4 engine and is capable of processing materials at a rate of up to 570 TPH.
In terms of transportation, the equipment can be folded and loaded onto a truck
or trailer, so it's easy to move from site to site.

Promoted as the largest tracked screener in its size class, the TS-516 also has
the greatest hopper capacity. With an 11.7-cubic-yard hopper, it delivers more
capacity than any other scalper in its class.

The equipment also increases production capacity with a total of 157 square
feet of screening area having a 16-foot by 5-foot top deck and a 15-foot 4-inch
by 5-foot bottom deck. This design allows users to produce and sort products in
up to three different sizes, and the decks can be interchanged so customers
have more control over end product size.

In addition, to accommodate the high productivity of the rest of the machine,
the TS-516 also features a 63-inch oversize conveyor. The conveyor accommodates
higher tonnages and alleviates much of the potential for congestion.

Design features and component options further enhance the machine's durability
and flexibility and provide end users more customization control. A rubber belt
feeder is standard on the unit, but customers can substitute a Hardox apron
feeder. While the TS-516 comes standard with an attached cord and remote for
controlling and maneuvering the scalper around a job site, customers can gain
more flexibility with a wireless remote option.
