Irock Crushers, a Valley View, Ohio-based manufacturer of mobile screening and crushing equipment, has introduced the TS-409 Open Style Feeder Track Screening Plant. The screener, one of five Irock models, is designed for small- to mid-size producers needing a more economical, more compact screening plant that do not require as much capacity.
The TS-409 is suitable for materials such as topsoil, mulch, sand and gravel, asphalt, coal, limestone and demolition debris, says the company. The screener is powered by a 66.2 horsepower Deutz engine and is able to process up to 300 tons of material per hour. Due to the equipment’s size it can be loaded onto a trailer to move from site to site, and has a set-up time of less than 10 minutes.
The TS-409 features an open-style hopper feeder with a 5.02 cubic yard capacity and a 42-inch-wide belt feeder conveyor. Capable of accurately and consistently sizing materials up to 12 inches in size, the TS-409 has two 9-foot-by-4-foot decks for a total of 72 square feet of screening area. The design allows users to produce and sort products in up to three different sizes. The decks can be interchanged, which give customers more control over end-product size, according to the company.
The unit has a range of features, including 400-mm-wide crawler tracks and an onboard 42-inch oversized Chevron belt conveyor with a stockpiling height of 11.5 feet. The entire working unit measures slightly more than 41 feet long.
Design features and component options of the screener further enhance the machine’s durability and flexibility and provide end users more customization control. A 42-inch rubber belt feeder is standard on the unit, but customers can substitute a Hardox-lined apron feeder to improve longevity in more rugged environments. Optional radio-control tracks can provide operators the convenience and flexibility to maneuver the unit around a job site wirelessly. Top deck bofar bars allow producers to retain more valuable fine material while rejecting unwanted oversize products. Finally, top-deck punch plates, commonly used in scalping or heavy-duty screening applications, are also an option that prolongs screen life.
