One of the offerings Haver & Boecker Niagara presented at MINExpo International 2021 is its new F-Class vibrating screen.

The company says the screen is designed to simplify maintenance, maximize performance and increase longevity.

Haver & Boecker Niagara aims to provide these advantages through new approaches to manufacturing the screens.

According to the copmany, the vibrating screen is now primarily built with vibration-resistant lockbolts, rather than the traditional welding used in previous designs. Kristen Randall, marketing manager at Haver & Boecker Niagara, says the change provides a stronger connection between pieces, allows for easier disassembly and maintenance, and keeps costs about the same as with welding.

“Everything that was previously welded, is now lockbolted,” Randall says. “Lockbolts are used on aircrafts, as well, and are stronger than welding. With this not being welded, it will be able to [better] withstand the g-forces of the machine and keep the machine together. It’s much easier, cheaper and safer to maintain.”

Randall adds that this type of manufacturing is unique to the company. Haver & Boecker Niagara plans to next integrate this design into its T-Class screens, with other equipment to follow.

Additionally, Haver & Boecker Niagara says the new F-Class design provides the option to upgrade the machine with the company’s new Drop Guard system. The liners provide protection for the machine’s cross beams, reducing wear and extending vibrating screen life. The liner drops over the cross beam with no adhesive or tools required, and it can be easily removed and replaced when needed.

“Our new design results in a more durable and easy-to-maintain vibrating screen with the same industry-leading performance customers expect from the new F-Class,” says Duncan High, product manager for Haver & Boecker Niagara’s new F-Class design.

In an effort to maximize available open area, Haver & Boecker Niagara redesigned the flat deck models of the new F-Class to feature replaceable polyurethane anchors. The modular deck of the new F-Class is suitable for any pin and sleeve modular screen media.

The anchors are easy to replace, the company says, with Randall adding that ease, combined with material and strength, minimize wear on the deck frame, as well as downtime to replace the anchors.

“When you’re exchanging the media or just through wear, that hole becomes bigger and bigger and you have to repair it because the pin will not fit in,” Randall says. “With these, if this wears, you simply pop the anchor out and put a new one in. You’re not wearing against the bar rails on the machine.”
