Haver & Boecker’s F-Class Portable Plant
BY AsphaltPro Staff
Aggregates producers need efficient and productive equipment, especially with big infrastructure spending on the horizon in the United States. To provide the screening benefits of its F-Class vibrating screen on a chassis, Haver & Boecker offers its F-Class portable plant. Here’s how it works.
Producers tow the portable plant into place before leveling it with hydraulic run-on jacks. The run-on jacks lift the plant and eliminate the need for added cribbing to support the chassis. From there, the operator uses hydraulic legs to lift the F-Class into its optimal position—usually 20 degrees. A gas engine powers the plant’s hydraulics.
When all equipment is in place, a conveyor drops material into the portable plant’s hopper to be carried by the chassis-mounted hydraulic feed conveyor to the vibrating screen. An optional magnetic separator removes metal pieces, such as blasting caps and wrenches.
The feed conveyor drops the material onto the 3-deck F-Class vibrating screen. Material travels down the top deck, separating through screen media as it goes. The vibrating screen’s four bearing technology ensures a consistent stroke and, when combined with the right screen media, is designed to virtually eliminate blinding and pegging and material contamination.
An oversize chute at the end of the top deck gives operations the ability to drop material to the second deck, either for blending or as a load relief to remove coarse material. Producers also have the option to add a crusher directly to the portable plant to increase portability.
Cross conveyors are placed 90 degrees to the screen decks and a wide fines conveyor is placed at the bottom of the plant to remove fines.
