Haver & Boecker has launched the Tyler F-Class portable plant that includes several new technologies to improve setup time and extend equipment longevity in quarry and mining operations. The portable plant features a new custom-built chassis equipped with six hydraulic run-on jacks that quickly level the plant, eliminating the need for cribbing. The run-on jacks also ensure the chassis stays level during operation, which minimizes equipment wear.
"Portable plants should not only give producers the flexibility to move from site to site or within a quarry," said Karen Thompson, Haver & Boecker Canada president. "They should also be fast and easy to set up. We are committed to producing portable vibrating screen plants that possess these qualities, with the same durability, longevity and minimal maintenance as stationary vibrating screens."
Producers can move and set up the portable F-Class in less than 30 minutes. The chassis' hydraulic system raises the vibrating screen to its inclined operating position — usually 20 degrees. Takedown is even faster, requiring less than 20 minutes to lower the unit so it can move to the next location.
In addition to run-on jacks and hydraulic walkways, several other features offer enhanced durability and minimize maintenance. These include a new bolted-on suspension that can be removed during operation to eliminate the risk of damage. The chassis is also sandblasted and coated with a heavy-duty finish for optimal wear life and rust resistance.
Haver & Boecker's F-Class portable plant offers as many as three screen decks. Its feed conveyor, cross conveyor and fines conveyor are hydraulically operated for precise material placement. The plant's fines chute has a full-width access door that allows users to easily unload material build-up, and an oversize chute features AR liners that are bolted-on for easy replacement.
The F-Class vibrating screen has an advanced double eccentric shaft design, supported by four high-performance, double-spherical roller bearings. The F-Class is ideal for screening situations that require consistent, load independent performance at constant g-force. Featuring a unique and reliable, proven four-bearing technology, the vibrating screen delivers a consistent stroke, which two-bearing screens cannot provide. With the right media choice, the F-Class virtually eliminates blinding, pegging and material contamination.
The F-Class portable plant can be customized to include a crusher, conveyors or other components for enhanced productivity. The machine is ideal for tough applications, such as scalping and classifying ores, minerals, stones, sand and gravel.
