Products - Screenpod - Hydra TFS1400 Tracked

Hydra TFS1400 Tracked 

A tracked floatation separator that separates light material form heavy material using a water filled tank. The light material floats on the water to be removed by a brush conveyor, the heavies will sink underwater and then transfer out along the submerged conveyor into a separate stockpile.

Includes a shaft less-screw at the bottom of the water tank to which transfers to the discharge screw on the side keeping the machine free of unwanted sediment.

Using the simple principal that less dense material will float whilst the heavier ones will sink, the Screenpod flotation separator comprises a water-bath of approximately 4m3 into which the mixed materials are loaded via a top-mounted chute and two opposed conveyor systems. The first conveyor is partially submerged which draws the heavier fraction out of the water-bath and creates an external stockpile at one end of the machine, whilst the other conveyor skims the floating fraction to an external stockpile at the opposite end.

Being tracked provides allows for added flexibility on site or even the potential for moving from site to site. Versatility is at the heart of this design.

Any sludge which then accumulates at the base of the water-bath is conveyed out of the machine by a system of submerged helical screws.

Available in either diesel-hydraulic or electric.

Features and benefits 

  • Steel tub water bath supporting a heavy material belt, a light material belt and a feed chute with optional screen box complete with fines removal conveyor. Approximately 4 cubic meters of water in full tank. Water level automatically controlled with a ¾“ float valve. Two doors on the back and 2 on the side of the tub for access and cleaning.
  • Heavy material conveyor belt removes heavy material that sinks to the bottom and is then carried out on the belt settling onto a stockpile. Brush drum cleaner at head drum of conveyor driven by belt and pulleys from head drum shaft.
  • Light material brush conveyor the removes light material floating on the water.
  • Shaftless screw in bottom of tank to remove sediment and transfer it to the discharge screw.
  • Discharge shaftless screw conveyor to take sediment from the screw in the bottom of the tank.
  • Hardox lined feed chute for material to be fed into from a customer conveyor.
