After two years of development, Metso has announced the release of its new, exclusive ELLIPTI-FLO screening system, which will provide complete control of critical screen operating parameters. With the ability to dynamically adjust the stroke angle and force, the ELLIPTI-FLO range can produce up to 30 percent more than a traditional banana screen in the same footprint. According to Metso, this is a revolutionary step forward in separation technology.
The system can handle material that historically was difficult or impossible to separate, including sticky wet material that would blind a traditional incline machine. The ELLIPTI-FLO system also has newly developed high load, bearingless exciters. Based on Metso’s mill technology, this innovative design gives the potential for a truly infinite life to the exciter mechanisms. The result is no rebuilds with very simple maintenance.
To make these screens even more efficient, Metso also offers an electronic handheld vibrating equipment audit tool – the IC80 – that allows quick, consistent and professional commissioning and trouble shooting.
The ELLIPTI-FLO system is ideally compatible with Metso’s TS screen series, which represents the company’s flagship product in the North American market fleet. According to Metso, TS screens are the only triple deck elliptical banana screen designed especially for construction, and allow for up to 40 percent more production on the same footprint as a typical incline screen. The machine also generates very high acceleration (6Gs) at both the feed and discharge ends. This gives rapid material separation in the feed section with very efficient near size material handling at the discharge. The result is better efficiency and higher throughput in the same footprint.
