Komptech’s Nemus 2700 Drum Screen is built-for-market, developed with user experience and the individual needs of operators in mind.
When Simon Humphris, Product Manager at Komptech describes the Nemus 2700 Drum Screen, the words “flexibility” and “robust” are used regularly.
With a design that includes proven features from its predecessors, and an improved material feed and discharge system, the Nemus 2700 Drum Screen aims to satisfy the screening needs of operators within the waste industry.
Komptech has years of experience in manufacturing screening machines and understands the importance of both flexibility and mobility.
Simon says this understanding was a key influence during the development of the Nemus 2700 Drum Screen.
“The Nemus 2700 Drum Screen is designed with a great deal of flexibility so operators can screen different sizes of product,” he says.
“The goal for users is to make sure that their compost, or whatever material it might be, touches the majority of the screening area throughout its whole cycle. Or else users are effectively not using the drum at its highest efficiency.”
This efficiency all starts with the hopper at the point of entry on the Nemus 2700 Drum Screen. Incorporating a low-wear hopper belt drive, along with an automatic hopper belt control, ensures that users can have precise straight-line travel for the input material.
Material entering the Nemus 2700 Drum Screen is processed at an optimal level, thanks to a number of components, including a helix coil.
“The helix coil inside of the drum screen acts similar to a cement mixer,” Simon says. “It helps all of the compost make contact with the screen, in its full rotation and to the full extent of the screen.
“What that is doing is giving operators access to the full square meterage of the screen. This makes it significantly more efficient.”
The Nemus 2700 Drum Screen can also process larger volumes of material.
“The Nemus 2700 Drum Screen also has a slightly larger gate, the gap between the drum wall and inside wall,” Simon says.
“When operators increase their drum size, it also increases the throughput of the machine.
“If the material is coming through at a higher volume, it can jam between the drum and side wall. The larger gate helps to prevent this.
“The Nemus 2700 Drum Screen also has a load sensitive hopper, which means that if the machine is overloaded then the drum will shut down. It’s a protection piece, so users don’t have issues with overloading.”
Whether screening large or small volumes, the Nemus 2700 Drum Screen maintains its fuel efficiency, even during higher throughput rates.
“The Nemus 2700 Drum Screen uses around six to eight litres of fuel an hour, which is pretty low,” Simon says.
The Nemus 2700 Drum Screen provides two chassis variants, the track chassis or the trailer chassis, both manufactured to suit the specific needs of operators.
Simon says customers can choose either of the two variants, depending on the type of screening work and frequency of movement they require.
“Track chassis is particularly useful for moving the machine out each day to clean underneath it,” he says.
“This provides a benefit for those operators who are using the machine every day. The trailer chassis requires a machine to move the Nemus 2700 Drum Screen every day, whereas with the track chassis, operators can move it with the touch of a button.”
Komptech understands that unpredictable compost and mulch volumes can sometimes require smaller or larger drums, so various drum sizes are available.
“The Nemus 2700 Drum Screen can accommodate drum changes very quickly and efficiently, so we have some customers who may have three to five drums, depending on what they are doing,” Simon says.
“For those who sell mulch, they are going to require a level of flexibility day in and day out and that is what this machine provides.”
Maintenance and support
The Nemus 2700 Drum Screen has been designed with maintenance in mind, as well as the safety of the operator when servicing the machine’s components.
“When it is critical to make adjustments to the engine, it can sometimes be unsafe to crawl into a unit,” Simon says. “The Nemus 2700 Drum Screen has a slide-out engine, which allows for the component to slide out on its own frame. This means that servicing can happen on the engine away from the machine.
“The Nemus 2700 Drum Screen also comes with a set of brushes, which is a one-piece brush set that runs along the barrel. Operators who have drum screens know that you need to keep the drum screens clean to preserve efficiency.”
Simon says that Komptech customers can be reassured that required support and service will be offered long after the purchasing of a product.
“For each state in Australia we have our own CEA branch, we have our own parts and our own national distributor centre.
“We have sales teams, service teams and support teams in every state,” he says. “We’re completely understanding of what customers require to keep their machines going and we are here to support the customer.”
