November 2018 45 product news continued custom designed to be less than 25 kg per piece, which provides safe handling and fast implementation. The re-engineered trommel frames use modular design and standardized construction principles that produces a frame with less mass while maintaining maximum structural integrity. The FEA in- sures the trommels are structurally sound and will offer excellent service life. The custom-designed screening me- dia are fitted to the trommel using friction grip rails that use no extra parts, such as bolts or pins. This means panel fitting and maintenance activities can be carried out quickly and safely using simple tools, re- ducing the time it takes to perform routine maintenance activities, the company said. Discrete Element Analysis (DEM) software, which is available to customers through FLSmidth, simulates the opera- tion of the trommel and allows an analy- sis of pulp flow through the trommel. The company's engineers can advise on how to optimize pulp flow through the trommel to improve both throughput and wear life of the screens. "We are excited to deliver this inno- vative solution to the market because we believe it will be a key component for in- crease capacity for our customers," said Brent Stokes, head of wear parts and con- sumables for FLSmidth. "We recognized the customer's need for a simple to use and dependable trommel solution and we responded. These are suitable to any mining operation across the globe and will deliver on our promise of sustainable productivity enhancement." The trommel chassis are largely pre-en- gineered, but can be custom made to suit specific requirements. Global sourcing plans are already in place and, in combi- nation with the modular features incorpo- rated in the new designs, means trommel chassis can be fabricated closer to custom- ers' sites, providing faster delivery. • 50% Brighter • Makes reflective material POP! • Fits older-style halogen XP enclosures • MSHA approved • Made in USA Phone: 812.490.1525 email: PATENT PENDING Safety Everyone Can See!
