Terex Washing Systems has released the M1700X mobile washing screen to improve efficiency, wear life and ease of reconfiguration compared to its predecessor, the M1700.
Unveiled at Ireland’s Construction & Quarry Machinery Show (CQMS) in late September, TWS business line director Barry McMenamin said the company had continued to build on its reputation for reliable washing plant.
“The addition of the M1700X will enhance an already significant product range offered by Terex Washing Systems, meeting both market and customers’ needs for mobile washing,” he said.
“Our team of engineers have worked closely with our customers to develop improvements to an already high performing machine, such as the new tracked rinser that features a redesigned high fluidisation wash box, increased standard features and improved washing efficiency.”
TWS has designed the new model with a focus on wet processing efficiency, including a 16 per cent increase in spray capacity on all decks, plus a set-up time which averages around 15 minutes.
The improved M1700X features a new integrated high fluidisation wash box to maximise deck efficiency, increase media wear life and have an adjustable spray system. It also boasts increased standard features, including a regular hydraulic raise and lower for quicker service access, standard hydraulic tensioning, and one-piece catchbox for easy machine reconfiguration.
Setting new standards in screen box technology, the M1700X has a heavy-duty bearing arrangement for long service life, higher levels of screening efficiency and throughput, increased serviceability and maintenance access as well as increased screen angle adjustment that is highly adaptable for feed material variation.
The revamped model is fitted with numerous levels of catchbox sealing, innovative configurable catchbox outlets and configurable blending to maintain material specification.
The M1700X is easily transported, has a quick set up time (typically 15 minutes), and has optional hybrid power available globally. Twin- and triple-deck variants of the M1700X are also available.
McMenamin said it was great to be back in front of customers and releasing new and exciting machinery after being sidelined for so long by the global pandemic.
“It was terrific to be back at a show, welcoming customers to our stand, showcasing the capability of our equipment and discussing our latest innovations,” he said.
“We were delighted by how well the M1700X was received and we look forward to building on the connections made at CQMS and discussing how our bespoke solutions can meet their specific needs.”
The enhanced M1700X wash screen is expected to be available in Australia in the first quarter of 2022.
