Is Contamination a Problem for You?

Trommels are known for causing trouble. Whether it’s Christmas lights, plastic film, or hoses something is bound to get wrapped around the rotating shaft screen and jam your machine creating a massive headache for you and a slowdown in productivity for your process not to mention the frustration of untangling.  The General Kinematics FINGER-SCREEN 2.0™ uses the combination of finger decks and long strokes to keep material from wrapping and getting stuck in the machine.

Great for MSW, C&I and Single Stream applications, the superior performance of vibratory processing with GK’s unique FINGER-SCREEN™ deck delivers highly efficient separation and classification. Like the original FINGER-SCREEN™ Primary Screen that took the industry by storm, FINGER-SCREEN™ 2.0 features an enhanced vibratory action that spreads material across the deck for maximum utilization of the screen area. Tapered finger designs along with unique cam-out surfaces and staggered positions help to prevent material bypass. Separation performance is further improved as material freely cascades down the deck with less plugging, trapping, or pegging. The result: continuous, dynamic material flow to optimize separation and classification.

The FINGER-SCREEN™ 2.0 boasts more energy, faster travel rate, and a higher lift for challenging materials including garbage bags, yard waste, and other lightweight, flexible materials. Unlike Rotary trommels, which aerate materials, cause blinding and pass long pokers with a high level of daily cleaning and maintenance requirements, FINGER-SCREEN™ 2.0 separates materials based on 3D sizing with minimal blinding and minimal housekeeping. When used as the primary screen, FINGER-SCREEN™ 2.0 provides the initial size separation which scalps off any potentially destructive contaminants, allowing the rest of the downstream equipment to operate effectively.

Why trust a trommel when the FINGER-SCREEN™ 2.0 is tangle free?
