Screenmasters is adding to its range of trommels and scalping screens with the new SMA600 heavy duty rock trommel, set to arrive early next year.

Screenmasters to debut new trommel
The SMA600 heavy duty rock trommel is more robust than a traditional scalping screen.

Ciaran Lagan, the company’s NSW sales director, tells that the new machine, currently under construction, will be able to handle rocks of up to 800mm in diameter.

"The traditional scalping screen it can’t really accept those bigger feed sizes, so one of the benefits of a rock trommel is that it is more robust," he says.

"It is also good for clearing up clay rich material – it has a drum cleaner on it, so any clay-rich material that would normally block up a screen is broken down and pushed through, so you can separate the rock from the clay."

Lagan says the machine will have a number of new features designed specifically for Australia, including larger oil coolers and heavy-duty gearboxes to help the unit conveyors handle the larger rocks.

"We did a push pull feeder – it is just more robust when you are dropping larger rocks onto the feeder, and other little changes like that," he says.

Screenmasters plans to get one larger and one smaller model for the company’s Sydney base – delivering from there to all over Australia’s east coast, Lagan says.

The SMA600 will join Screenmasters’ Australia’s new product range of crushers, screens and stackers all built and designed for the Australian market.
