SXS ScreenThe path of least resistance isn’t always the best choice.

Consider skiing after a powder storm: It’ll require more energy to carve out turns in deep snow—but it’s worth the expenditure! And in most regards, the benefits of the “path of least resistance” are conceptual perceptions based on what we’ve experienced in the past: What has worked well before will continue to work well in the future.

Right?

Well, not exactly. (Inventions aren’t born out of complacency.) At General Kinematics, we return to the drawing board persistently. We question our equipment designs and in doing so, continue to engineer the most innovative, energy efficient equipment for resource recovery in the industry.

Hot off the Press: SXS Screen

Amongst our creations, General Kinematics recently introduced the SXS Screen: a side by side screen that separates the recoverable material in a waste stream—which is the first-ever design of its kind in the industry.

What makes the side-by-side screen awesome?

(Everything is better in pairs. But actually…)

Moving Materials

The unit’s design is meant to handle less dense, soft materials, which are often more difficult to move across a conveyor or screen. It’s a great alternative choice to star screens, disc screens, and rotary trommels.

Speed and Separation

Secondly, the screen transmits a high stroke, which (naturally) pushes materials forward at an increased speed. Swelling the travel speed actually improves the material separation, and likewise improves the overall waste recovery.

(Applause.)

Low-cost Operation

Even with a high-energy stroke, operating costs are low because the SXS Screen uses up to two-thirds less horsepower than standard machines.

Versatility

The SXS Screen has customizable widths to meet your specific separation requirements as well as multi-stream capabilities. (No matter what though, it needs lower headroom for installation—which is a win for all.)

The first unit was installed in September 2014—so be on the lookout for our images and video footage that shares the results of this game changer!
