Haver & Boecker’s new, portable F-Class vibrating screen offers increased mobility to maximise flexibility and ROI for aggregate and mining operations. Each portable F-Class features a base frame that easily attaches to a custom built chassis. The portable plant includes a hydraulic system that positions the vibrating screen at the optimal angle. These two features allow producers to move and setup the portable F-Class in less than 30 minutes in nearly any location.“To help our customers streamline their operations, and provide solutions to a broader array of operations, we amplified our F-Class vibrating screen by adding portability,” said Karen Thompson, Haver & Boecker Canada President. “This not only gives customers the flexibility to easily travel from jobsite to jobsite, but our leading edge, four-bearing screening technology virtually eliminates the common issues of pegging, blinding and cross contamination, therefore increasing overall efficiency and profitability.”Beyond flexibility, Haver & Boecker’s updated F-Class vibrating screen offers up to three screen decks. The vibrating screen features an advanced double eccentric shaft design, supported by four high-performance, double-spherical roller bearings. Each F-Class is equipped with Haver & Boecker’s revolutionary Ty-Rail™ quick-tensioning system, which minimises downtime for screen media change-outs by about 50%.The F-Class is ideal for screening situations that require consistent, load independent performance at constant g-force in all operational modes. Featuring a unique and reliable, proven four-bearing technology, the vibrating screen minimiSes structural vibration and delivers a consistent stroke,which two-bearing screens cannot provide. The vibrating screen is mounted on a chassis, which uses hydraulics to achieve an optimal screening angle — from 15 to 25 degrees — as well as to lift the machine while adding cribbing for support. This setup process takes less than 30 minutes to complete.Take down is even faster, requiring less than 20 minutes to lower the unit so it can move to the next location. “With the fast pace of the industry and the underlying need to increase screening efficiency and profitability, it was the right time to launch the portable F-Class,” Thompson said. “The demand for portable plants has grown significantly over the years, which is why we wanted to provide a solution for our customers. We’re using our decades of experience coupled with that of our partners, such as HIKON Industries, to develop the absolute best mobile screening platform onthe market. Together, we can offer our customers the entire package.”Businesses can customise the portable F-Class setup to include a crusher system for enhanced productivity. The F-Class is ideal for tough applications, such as scalping and classifying ores, minerals, stones, sand and gravel. The portable F-Class includes Haver & Boecker’s Uptime Service Package, providing 36 months of warranty coverage on any new equipment purchase. Uptime offers customers a full-service approach to equipment optimisation — from parts inspection and equipment assessment to screen media evaluation.
