ASTEC LANDS THE FIRST GT206 TRACK MULTI FREQUENCY SCREEN INTO AUSTRALIA

The new GT205 Multi-Frequency Screen allows producers to process finer materials with higher moisture content that no conventional screen could process, all while being operated at a lower angle than a high frequency screen.

The new track-mounted GT205 Multi-Frequency Screen features ASTEC KPI-JCI and Astec Mobile Screens’ unique multi-frequency screen design, which blends the technology of conventional incline and high frequency screens to create a screening tool that increases fines separation more than any other in its class.

Conventional incline screens function by applying a lower speed (900-950 RPM) and increased stroke (6mm- 10mm) to the entire screen box to convey the material down the screen and maintain consistent bed depth. High frequency screens apply high speed vibration (3,600-4,200 RPM) directly to the screen media to allow for increased stratification and separation of material.

The GT205 Multi-Frequency Screen combines the two screening theories to produce a one-of-a-kind vibration that creates a versatile screen prepared to tackle any application. KPI-JCI and Astec Mobile Screens pioneered the design of the industry’s first multi-frequency screen.

“We know that coarser material requires more amplitude and less frequency, while finer material requires less amplitude and more frequency. By combining these theories, we can take advantage of the power of our high frequency screen, which offers the highest screen capacity in the market for fines removal, chip sizing, dry-manufactured sand and more,” said Stephen Whyte, product manager for KPI-JCI and Astec Mobile Screens.

“Our new GT205 Multi-Frequency Screen allows producers to process finer materials with higher moisture content that no conventional screen could process, all while being operated at a lower angle than a high frequency screen.”

The GT205 Multi-Frequency Screen is well-suited for applications including sand and gravel, top soil, slag, crushed stone, recycle, reclaiming and reducing waste and processing materials from 150mm to 840micron. It is ideal for experienced producers seeking to reclaim material or reduce waste and improve their performance compared to conventional screens, Whyte said.

The GT205 Multi-Frequency Screen was launched at KPI-JCI and Astec Mobile Screens’ 2015 National Dealer Conference, held this year in Yankton, S.D. It is an evolution of the original GT205, which was launched in 2012 and uses a double- or triple-deck incline screen for processing sand and gravel, topsoil, slag, crushed stone and recycled materials.

KPI-JCI and Astec Mobile Screens is a premier worldwide manufacturer for the aggregate, construction and recycling industries.
