Astec’s AMS FT2618VM Fast Trax high frequency screening plant was designed to work with track crushers for use in tight spots.
The AMS FT2618VM comes with a double deck PEP Vari-Vibe high frequency screen, suitable for a wide range of applications, from crushed stone to reclaimed asphalt pavement. The PEP Vari-Vibe high frequency screen comes in a 6’ x 18’ top deck and 6’ x 12’ bottom deck for improved screen production. High frequency screens offer many advantages when compared to conventional screens, from higher production capabilities to more efficient sizing. Astec Australia says the track screening plant provides the highest screen capacity in the market for material separation, with a size range of 25mm to 0.6mm.
The FT2618VM features a self-contained diesel power with a standard wireless remote for on-site movement. Higher production capacity is achieved by a strong screen vibration directly applied to the screen media. The high number of vibrating revolutions per minute allows material to stratify and separate at a much faster rate than conventional screens.
Other advantages of the FT2618VM include vinyl dust cover, which provides dust control and cleaner air in the work area. Quick setup times give producers more time to produce material, while central grease points make routine services easier.
