A Better Trommel Solution (2 replies)

We travel the world talking with Processing Managers and maintenance personnel who all seem to want the same thing in their plants, Greater Throughput and Lower Cost.

And why not! I mean, who wouldn't like to get more for less? Would you?

When we ask "What are you going to do to achieve this?" the same answer usually comes out. "We already have the best achievable throughputs with the panels and the best pricing" and they accept that as fact. Guess what - you don't.

We work with clients to design custom screening solutions that far exceed the performance of panel trommels. Our TEi Steel Trommels offer exciting benefits including huge cash cost savings and increased mill availability.

And best of all there is absolutely no change required to any other capital equipment, meaning that if you are not satisfied with the performance of a TEi Steel Trommel, and the extra benefits they provide, you can change back to your panel trommel with no fuss.

By now you are probably thinking this is too good to be true, but this is reality. As I show you even more about our trommels, you will start to become aware of the potentials and will realise just how perfectly a customised trommel solution will fit your needs.

I invite you all, whether you are the end user or a plant designer, to reach out and let me show you more. Our trommels are well suited to Brownfield or Greenfield applications, and the results we achieve, well they speak for themselves.

Which are the characteristics of your trommel? TEi steel trommel is 100% steel? By increasing throughput you increase open area of the panels,saying that, the availability will go down because of the shorter life of the panels. I don’t get it quite well, could you present more info, is pretty interesting what are you offering.

That’s right, TEi Steel Trommels are 100% steel construction.

TEi Steel Trommels are a completely consumable item with a solid screen and not panels. The increase in open area is principally achieved by removing the fixing margins associated with panels. The wear life of the screen is found to be significantly more than cast polyurethane panels, but again this varies with application.

TEi Steel Trommels really come into their own and show significant benefits in high volume, hard rock mining applications.

The design and construction features vary with every application, and leveraging our 35 years experience in the field, our clients are reaping the benefits.
