“To help our customers streamline their operations, and provide solutions to a broader array of operations, we amplified our F-Class vibrating screen by adding portability,” said Karen Thompson, Haver & Boecker Canada president. “This not only gives customers the flexibility to easily travel from jobsite to jobsite, but our leading edge, four-bearing screening technology virtually eliminates the common issues of pegging, blinding and cross contamination, therefore increasing overall efficiency and profitability.”
Beyond flexibility, Haver & Boecker’s updated F-Class vibrating screen offers up to three screen decks. The vibrating screen features an advanced double eccentric shaft design, supported by four high-performance, double-spherical roller bearings. Each F-Class is equipped with Haver & Boecker’s revolutionary Ty-Rail™ quick-tensioning system, which minimizes downtime for screen media change-outs by about 50 percent.
The F-Class is ideal for screening situations that require consistent, load independent performance at constant g-force in all operational modes. Featuring a unique and reliable, proven four-bearing technology, the vibrating screen minimizes structural vibration and delivers a consistent stroke, which two-bearing screens cannot provide.
The vibrating screen is mounted on a chassis, which uses hydraulics to achieve an optimal screening angle — from 15 to 25 degrees — as well as to lift the machine while adding cribbing for support. This setup process takes less than 30 minutes to complete. Take down is even faster, requiring less than 20 minutes to lower the unit so it can move to the next location.
“With the fast pace of the industry and the underlying need to increase screening efficiency and profitability, it was the right time to launch the portable F-Class,” Thompson said. “The demand for portable plants has grown significantly over the years, which is why we wanted to provide a solution for our customers. We’re using our decades of experience coupled with that of our partners, such as HIKON Industries, to develop the absolute best mobile screening platform on the market. Together, we can offer our customers the entire package.”
Businesses can customize the portable F-Class setup to include a crusher system for enhanced productivity. The F-Class is ideal for tough applications, such as scalping and classifying ores, minerals, stones, sand and gravel.
The portable F-Class includes Haver & Boecker’s Uptime Service Package, providing 36 months of warranty coverage on any new equipment purchase. Uptime offers customers a full-service approach to equipment optimization — from parts inspection and equipment assessment to screen media evaluation.
Additionally, Haver & Boecker offers the Pulse™ vibration analysis program to monitor the ongoing health of vibrating screens through real-time views, lo
gged reports and data analysis. It’s designed by Haver specifically for vibrating screens to catch small inconsistencies before they grow into problems and downtime.
“Overall, the portable F-Class brings the industry’s best screening equipment to a mobile platform,” Thompson said. “Beyond its mobility, there are optional service programs operations can use to practically ensure their uptime. This way they can keep up with the fast pace of the industry, and easily move from one jobsite to the next.”
