54 • ROCK products • November 2018 EQUIPMENT & TECHNOLOGY SCREENING & SIZING Haver & Boecker offers the Tyler L-Class vibrating screen for classifying wet or dry material as well as an ideal dewa- tering method. The compact machine is versatile and easy to maintain, with no timing belts or gears that normally need replacing. Producers can customize the 6-ft.-wide machine in two lengths: 16 ft. and 20 ft. Primarily mounted horizontally, the L-Class can also be inclined or declined as much as 3 degrees. The linear L-Class handles up to 400 tph and features a 45-degree mounted double-shaft overhead drive system with direct-mounted motors. Producers can access multi- ple speed and stroke options by changing the pulleys and plate weights. The application-specific body design offers simplified maintenance with a one-piece removable head and shaft assembly. In addition, unlike most linear-stroke machines, the L-Class does not require timing belts or gears, making maintenance even simpler. The L-Class is also ideal for separating water from product in dewatering applications. When positioned at a negative incline of about 3 degrees, the vibrating screen's g-force moves wet material uphill on the screen. Gravity and the natural operation of the equipment help screen out water before the material reaches the discharge end. The thick layer of material on the screen also acts as a filter cake and presses water out, as well as traps fine particles that would be lost in a thin layer screening process. For operations requiring a level of portability, Haver & Boecker engineers pair the L-Class with the Hydro-Clean 1000 Wash Plant on a skid structure. This combination offers the opportunity to purchase the three components together, saving operations months of time they would have spent designing and building a skid structure for a wash plant. Many operations are eligible to receive Haver & Boecker's Uptime Service Package free with the purchase of an L-Class. The service program provides 36 months of warranty coverage on any new equipment purchase. Uptime offers cus- tomers a full-service approach to equipment optimization, from parts inspection and equipment assessment to screen media evaluation. Haver & Boecker, Mars Mineral Develops 'The Pelletizer' Mobile App Mars Mineral has created "The Pelletizer," a mobile app designed to help manufacturers, processors and others choose the equipment best suited to their applications involving dusts, fines and powders. The Pelletizer is available through the App Store and the Google Play Store. It is formatted to be used on iPhone and other Apple devices, as well as on Android devices. The app's Equipment Selector feature allows users to input the types of powders they want to pelletize, as well as bulk density, desired pellet size and estimated hourly output. The Pelletizer also includes animations of process lines in action, FAQs, and a list of sales contacts throughout the United States and abroad. "Development of The Pelletizer app puts us closer than ever to new and established customers alike," said Clayton Woodward, president of Mars Mineral. "This con- venience should help users of our pelletizing equipment and systems educate themselves quickly about the best solutions for their specific applications." In response to market needs that are changing continually, Mars Mineral makes regular updates to its pelletiz- ing equipment and systems, including the Pin Mixer PRO, Deep Drum Pellet- izer and Ampel Horizontal Pelletizer.
