CDE
Booth: 1120
CDE’s AggMax technology is engineered to operate in the toughest of conditions to maximize product yield from the most abrasive of feedstocks. Combining feeding, scrubbing, screening, and sizing on one chassis, the AggMax is suitable for a variety of material streams and across various industries. The unique spiral alignment of its paddles reduces the shock of intermitting loads on the gearbox, motor and bearings. This design ensures consistent material loading and the unique paddle shape ensures maximum attrition with even the heaviest clay-bound feed material. Engineered to maximise the operational life of the plant, each Xtryl paddle is highly durable and incorporates integrated wear protection plates to protect fixings. It incorporates CDE’s pioneering Infinity Screen technology, which offers greater screening capability and reduces power consumption. The AggMax also uses CDE’s Infinity chutes which provide maximum up-time through their innovative material transfer. Its effectiveness at scrubbing heavy clay-bound material liberates the valuable materials, removing waste and vegetation to protect the downstream systems and making them considerably more efficient due to the plant incorporating a trash screen to float off organic contaminants. The AggMax can be customized to meet specific requirements with four pre-screen, recycling and three product screening options to choose from.

Haver & Boecker Niagara
Booth: 2116
Haver & Boecker Niagara has revolutionized its signature Niagara F-Class vibrating screen with new technology for simplified maintenance combined with maximum performance and longevity. The new 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 now primarily manufactured with vibration-resistant lockbolts instead of the traditional welding used in previous designs. Bar rails are now fastened to the cross beams with lockbolts, making them easy to exchange if they become worn. The robustness of the machine also permits cross beams to be positioned and lock-bolted every four-feet instead of every two-feet, allowing for better clearance and easier maintenance. The new F-Class design provides the option to upgr https://lippmann-milwaukee.com ade the machine with Haver & Boecker Niagara’s new Drop Guard system. The liners provide protection for the machine’s cross beams, both reducing wear and extending vibrating screen life.

MAJOR
Booth: 2116
MAJOR’s FLEX-MAT modular screen media panels deliver increased throughput by providing more open area than traditional panels. FLEX-MAT features up to 40-per-cent more screen capacity than traditional woven wire and up to 50-per-cent more than traditional polyurethane and rubber panels. The modular panels are available in three pattern options: the D, S and T series. The D series features a standard square pattern, which is ideal for precise sizing. The S series maximizes open area, virtually eliminates blinding, and reduces fine contamination. The T series enhances screening for particles below 0.059 inches (1.5 millimeters) and features small openings to minimize blinding. The screen media is secured through either grooved, step, or pin and leg panels. The efficiency-enhancing characteristics of all FLEX-MAT screen media, including modular panels, are created by bonding OPTIMUMWIRE with distinctive lime-green polyurethane strips rather than weaving them. This allows 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.
