Haver & Boecker Niagara Introduces Lock-Bolted Deck Frame Options
Haver & Boecker Niagara adds the Cap & Slide and Pin & Anchor deck frame systems to its expanding line of lock-bolted deck frame technology. The new deck frames offer the availability of bolt-on convenience for pin and sleeve and groove style modular screen media. The innovative design of the lock-bolted deck frames was introduced at CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2023 and underscores Haver & Boecker Niagara’s ongoing commitment to being a total solutions provider for mining, aggregate and fertilizer processing operations by increasing efficiency and reducing operational expenses.
“The deck frames, whether Pin & Sleeve or Cap & Slide, provide the first line of defense against wear and can be exchanged individually,” said Duncan High, Haver & Boecker Niagara’s division manager of processing and equipment technology. “Beyond that, the rails can be replaced in 4-foot sections, allowing our customers to target and replace only those areas with high wear. This saves not only time but also expense.”
The narrow configuration of the new deck frames increases the open area for more throughput.
Lock bolts are used to provide a secure, weld-free connection that minimizes cost and wear. The rails require no special tools to repair or replace and can be installed 50% faster than traditional rail systems. Eliminating welding removes the need for a skilled welder, as well as the potential for accidents from cutting or grinding, and the chance of fire.
The Pin & Anchor deck frame incorporates laser-cut rails with polyurethane pins and anchors to secure the screen media to the deck rail. Designed to hold the media firmly in place, the pins and anchors can be individually removed and replaced as wear occurs, extending wear life and reducing downtime. The Pin & Anchor deck frame system accommodates any pin and sleeve style modular screen media.
