Superior releases new standard designs
By Andrew Macklin
May 18, 2016 – Superior Industries Inc. launched a new set of standard designs for its portable processing plants including a Guardian Screen Plant, Twin Screw Wash Plant and Aggredry Wash Plant. The standard features, including new elements exclusive to Superior, are designed to speed setup, improve processing efficiencies and reduce maintenance.
Guardian Horizontal Screen
Brand new from Superior, the company’s American-made triple shaft, horizontal screen includes unique features like bottle-jack lifting points for spring replacement, fully-enclosed belt guards with integrated tensioning systems and hinged access doors on side plates.
Designed to integrate a fine material washer and dewatering screen into a single component, sand processed through an Aggre-Dry Washer has a moisture content of eight per cent. The product requires no drying time and is instantly saleable.
New and patent pending, Superior’s Level Assist technology automatically levels a plant once the machinery is raised to a desired height. Historically, owners and operators adjusted cribbing and jacks to level a plant.
Designed to fold into position during operation, this unique feature allows material to spread uniformly across the full screen deck, which maximizing screening potential through proper feed.
Tilting Motor Base
Another innovation to save time during set up or dismantling, a tilting motor base rotates to a travel position allowing owners and operators to transport the plant without having to remove the motor.
In addition to standard designs, Superior is equipped with a growing, in-house engineering department. These engineers and designers, says the manufacturer, allow the company to continue customizing chassis designs to match unique customer applications or preferred specifications.
