Superior launches designs for portable screening, washing plants

By |  May 18, 2016

Superior Industries Inc. launched a new set of standard designs for its portable processing plants, including the Guardian screen plant, a twin-screw wash plant and the Aggre-Dry wash plant. The standard features are designed to speed up setup, improve processing efficiencies and reduce aggravating maintenance that inefficient designs cause, the company says.

Guardian horizontal screen

The company’s triple-shaft, horizontal screen includes unique features like bottle-jack lifting points for spring replacement, fully-enclosed belt guards with integrated tensioning systems and hinged access doors on side plates.

Aggre-Dry washer

Designed to integrate a fine material washer and dewatering screen into a single component, sand processed through an Aggre-Dry washer has a moisture content of 8 percent, according to Superior. The product requires no drying time and is instantly saleable.

Level Assist

Superior’s Level Assist technology automatically levels a plant once the machinery is raised to a desired height. Historically, owners and operators tediously adjusted cribbing and jacks to level a plant, the company says.

Centering hopper

Designed to fold into position during operation, this feature allows material to spread uniformly across the full screen deck, maximizing screening potential through proper feed.

Tilting motor base

Another innovation to save time during setup or dismantling, a tilting motor base rotates to a travel position, allowing owners and operators to transport the plant without having to remove the motor, Superior says.
