Superior Industries Inc. completed research and development of its first aggregate screen.

Known as the Guardian horizontal screen, the triple-shaft, adjustable oval stroke design was engineered using customer feedback, the company says. According to Superior, several key features help distinguish the horizontal screen as a unique new processing solution for the aggregates industry, including bottle jack lifting points that simplify and speed spring replacement and improve safety; a segmented belt guard and sectioned tailgate that lighten the loads of these two features, requiring only one person to remove and return the guards and gates during maintenance; bolt-locking, hinged access doors, which allow access for screen media maintenance; and a fully-enclosed belt guard that ensures safety while an integrated, on-board tensioner accelerates maintenance to the motor belt.

Superior designs and manufactures Guardian horizontal screens in two- and three-deck configurations for 5-ft. x 16-ft., 6-ft. x 16-ft. 6-ft. x 20-ft., 7-ft. x 20-ft. and 8-ft. x 20-ft. models. Each unit is equipped with spray bar knockout holes for wet processing applications.
