Astec’s AMS FT2618VM Fast Trax high frequency screening plant

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.

CRS KF 44-18 Kinetic Flow Screen: Lincom Group

The flip flow technology of the KF 44-18 allows recyclers, materials recovery facilities and the waste management industry to extract greater volumes of recyclable fine materials from waste streams.

The machine aims to extract these volumes after a primary screening for blending or further separation as single-size saleable material. The increased extraction of recyclables also works to reduce tip-to-landfill volumes, while lowering transport costs and landfill tax, according to Australian distributor Lincom Group. It also contributes to environmental preservation in the long-term.

Based on the kinetic flow principle, the machine produces an aggressive ‘pitch, throw and action’ that results in clean fines material. A screening area of 1.80m x 4.4mm provides a high throughput and the self-cleaning Vulkalon D15 screen elements can be replaced easily.

The CRS KF 44-18 Kinetic Flow Screen works in a range of applications, including: fine mixed C&D waste (0-80mm); mixed organic waste, damp and sticky materials such as powders, soils and sand, shredded mulch or organic materials.

Some of the notable features include a simple three-stage set up, a rapid conversion from three-way split to two-way split and a smart design to minimise weight while keeping strength and robustness intact. An open chassis design also aims to provide extensive access below screen to aid mesh changes. A variable speed feeder features heavy duty rollers, a rigid hopper structure and folding hopper extensions.
