Our NIX Repairs & Maintenance Division designed a trommel screen to match an existing design. A 3/8″ flat plate was cut and rolled to diameter. Two flanges were burnt out with the inside dimension to match the outside dimension of the rolled plate. Our team then took the project to fit the rolled plate to the flanges and marked out the triangular cut-outs, which were then hand-cut by a plasma cutter.
The wire mesh was cut and rolled to match the inside dimension of the trommel and installed. After this, the pre-manufactured flighting was installed to finish out the trommel screen. The advantage of this trommel versus the existing trommels, is the fact this one was 100% built out of stainless steel materials, which should last the customer a substantially longer amount of time.
