Astec’s newest PTSC plant is equipped with an 8’ x 18’ (2.4 x 5.5 m) top deck and an 8’ x 12’ (2.4 x 3.7 m) bottom deck. The patent-pending screen design features externally-mounted vibrators at the ends of the tappets for a more aggressive screening action. This unique design creates a higher G-force and reduces heat load from material to motors as compared to single, center-mounted vibrators. It also allows for easier maintenance and adjustments. The screen is equipped with hydraulic operating angle adjustment, a fines collection hopper, top- and bottom-deck discharge chutes and an aggregate spreader.
Similar to other PTSC plants, the 2818VM features a nominal 54” x 38’ (137.16 x 1,158.2 cm) delivery conveyor with hydraulic drive and full-length skirtboards. The chassis is fitted with manually-operating support legs, outriggers for additional support and folding walkways along the screen.
The new portable plant is available with a variety of options, including: steel screen cloth, vinyl dust cover, hydraulic leveling jacks, immersion heaters for hydraulic reservoirs, starters for three off-plant conveyors and more.
