Metso is introducing a new attachment system for its Trellex screening media that makes media change-outs safer and faster, increasing productivity in minerals processing.
The removal of worn-out pin and sleeve screening media modules has traditionally been a time-consuming and potentially unsafe undertaking. Metso’s innovative new attachment system improves worker safety during change-outs as there is no need to use a hammer when installing and removing screening media.
The specially developed pins can be screwed into place as well as removed using an impact driver. Accidents that occur when pins that are stuck get torn off by force can be avoided. In addition to improved safety, the new attachment system reduces the change-out time, resulting in higher uptime and productivity.
The attachment system is currently available as a standard option for Trellex 305PS screening media most common build heights (40 mm – 60 mm), and will soon be introduced for additional build heights.
