Screen USA Inc. has introduced the newest model to its trommel screen line-up. The Screen USA TROM512 was developed with easy-access in mind for the screening market.
Screen USA Inc. manufactures small and medium sized screening equipment for the soil and organic industries. Nested on seven acres in the quiet town of Smyrna, Ga., since 1973, Screen USA has found success in the portable screening industry.
According to Rick Cohen, owner of Screen USA Inc., “We have been working on this new machine vigorously for the past year and we are extremely proud of how it came out.” Cohen emphasized the largest issue with the existing medium sized trommel screens on the market is accessibility. “The second issue is that manufacturers are trying to offer a lesser expensive machine so they are cutting corners on strength and quality to deliver the most inexpensive price.”
Screen USA’s TROM512, proves accessible with two large hinged doors that open up on each side to give complete access to the trommel screen and drive system. Once the doors are open, the entire drum is visible and can be easily removed by pulling it out the side of the machine. In addition to the screen door, three doors (one on each side) allow complete accessibility to the engine compartment. The TROM512 also was designed with access doors for all bearings, so maintenance is easy.
The Screen USA TROM512 is equipped with a 3.2 cu. yd. (2.4 cu m) hopper, 39 in. (99 cm) wide variable speed feeder, 5 by 12 ft. (1.5 by 3.6 m) trommel screen and a built-on fines conveyor. An optional built-on overs conveyor also is available. A 60 hp Cat engine is at the heart of the machine. This trommel screen is offered both on wheels and on tracks. “We anticipate the track-mounted trommel to be our number one seller, however, time will tell,” said Cohen. “As for price, Screen USA is selling factory direct to eliminate the typical 20 to 25 percent mark-up of the dealer. This allows us to offer the best quality at a considerable discount.”
