Continuing its commitment to ongoing innovation, Deister Machine Company, Inc., launched its new BFO-11224-EX2 Mine-Duty Screen. Offering the next generation in machine size and production output, this 12-foot x 24-foot, horizontal, single-deck unit delivers day-to-day reliability and high-volume capacities in a variety of hard rock mining and mineral processing applications.
The BFO-11224 Mine-Duty Screen features the new Deister EX Series of geared exciters which are designed to create the force output required to drive today’s large screens. Geared exciters feature all-steel components; specially-coated bearing inner races to deter wear on shafts; and shafts that are case-hardened and ground for minimal wear. Mechanisms are sealed to minimize oil contaminants and maximize bearing life. Seals ride on replaceable ceramic coated spacers that minimize heat and increase seal life up to 10 times that of conventional steel spacers and seals.
To meet the most stringent structural specifications, the BFO-11224-EX2 features fully-bolted construction as well as the use of A572-Grade 50 steel. For ease of maintenance, the unit is engineered with independent cross beams.
The Deister Mine-Duty Horizontal BFO Model Screen Series features a size range from 3-foot x 4-foot, and up to 12-foot x 28-foot units; and deck configurations from a single deck up to 4 decks. Models are either eccentric shaft driven or geared exciter driven. Deister has the ability to customize a screen to suit exacting requirements such as existing foot prints, restricted overhead space, high-volume processing, and more.
As a family-owned business, which celebrated a century of manufacturing excellence in 2012, Deister Machine Company remains a customer-focused leader in the aggregate and mining industries.
