DUO Manufacturing expand their trommel range


Duo Manufacturing has recently expanded their existing range of trommels.

The current range offers a 2.4 metres diameter model and is available in either 3 bay/4 bay or 6 bays; this range has now been extended to include a 3 metre diameter model.
The new 3 metre model is a heavy-duty 3000mm diameter x 9.4 metre long trommel and is inclined at 6 degrees and mounted on polyurethane tyred wheels.

Fitted with solid machined steel roller paths to facilitate smooth running and minimise tyre wear the trommel is driven by a 15 kW - 415V, 3 phase, 50Hz TEFV motor unit through a heavy duty chain drive with segmented sprockets. Bolted to the trommel feed ring, this ensures a positive slip free drive at all times.

The screening elements are10mm mild steel punched plates bolted to the trommel frame for ease of replacement/renewal. The discharge chute is fabricated from 8mm mild steel plate. Four heavy-duty brushes on spring loaded bearing units complete with hinged frames for ease of maintenance are fitted to clean the screen plates.

Access is provided by a 600mm wide catwalk to one side of the trammel, comprising of galvanised grip walk type open floor mesh and 32mm diameter nominal bore galvanised handrail tubing supported in tubular standards.

The trommel is supported by a heavy-duty fully welded tower and trestle rigidly tied and braced for maximum stability.

DUO trommels offer a reduction in weight being sent to landfill and incorporate excellent engineering and high dependability with very little operating cost.
