The Best of Both Worlds with the New EDGE TRM516

The Best of Both Worlds with the New EDGE TRM516

Edge Innovate’s reputation has been gained not only as a high quality equipment manufacturer but also as an organization quick to respond to changing customer needs and demands. Individual machine concepts and improvements are less likely to be the brain-child of a particular engineer and more likely to be an idea that has originated from the yard of a skip hire company or a recycling facility. With decades of experience in equipment engineering and design, the Edge Design Academy adopts a listening approach to customer interaction.

The entire EDGE product range can trace its roots back directly to equipment end users. EDGE’s new TRM516 Range is no different. Their Global Dealer Open Day on January 16th saw the unveiling of a robust mobile trommel designed for the Recycling, Composting and C&D industries in the form of the TRM516.

Managing Director Darragh Cullen speaking at the unveiling of the TRM516 said;

“Numerous dealers and customers over the past number of years have expressed interest in a Trommel of this size and spec. Over the past couple of years, such requests have increased. There is a huge market for high performance trommel’s, the success of our 622 tracked and wheeled trommel is evident of that”

With numerous screens and drum types available the TRM516 series provides high flexibility and is the perfect option for end users who are constrained for space. Thanks to design features such as the sixteen foot long drum the TR516 is able to produce top-quality fine materials such as compost, gravel, sand and topsoil with ease. What’s more, because these materials can spend a greater amount of time in the longer 16ft drum, you will be able to achieve enhanced screening results. The TR516 series will cater for a wide range of applications, whether it is industries such as the aggregates, skip waste management, and those wishing to process industrial and demolition waste. This new addition to the EDGE trommel range is more than capable of handling many material types that only larger trommels previously could with ease.

Design features include an overload sensing system. The drum and the feeder work together to prevent overloading using Pressure Transducer Technology. Hydraulic pressure being used to drive the drum is constantly monitored. If it is too high then the feeder will slow down automatically, if the pressure is still too high then the feeder will slow down again to an eventual stop. Once the pressure in the drum begins to drop then the feeder will speed up again automatically.

One consideration for EDGE when designing this machine was the question of the end fines conveyor type machine versus the Side Fines Conveyor design. By engineering a very compact end conveyor machine, EDGE have kept the advantage of a side conveyor product with all the advantages of the end conveyor offering, ultimately giving the customer the best of both worlds. For those users that require a 90 degree output conveyor, the radial conveyor can of course be set to 90 degrees either left or right to offer this feature.

Innovatively designed for fuel efficiency and low operating costs, the TRM516 can be easily transported from site to site. The TRM516 boasts a sixteen foot long drum, four wheel direct drive system, hydraulic variable speed control drum and feeder conveyor with load sensing controls. Optional oversize and radial fines conveyors are available for higher stockpiling requirements.As always with EDGE Innovate given EDGE’s superior global Aftersales support; the relationship doesn’t end with the sale, it begin.

The TRM516 is the first product to be revealed by EDGE Innovate in 2015 with more new additions to be expected throughout the year, including a track version to be added to the TR516 Trommel Series. For more information regarding the new TRM516 Mobile Trommel, contact [email protected]
