The Screencore range of Orbiter trommels is available in a variety of sizes, encompassing features making them ideal for construction,  demolition, recycling and aggregates applications.

Mobility, productivity and fuel efficiency have been inbuilt into the expanding range, with Orbiter trommels now found throughout the world working on a variety of materials.

Screencore has since its inception used its extensive expertise to develop and introduce a range of modern, mobile crushing, screening, stockpiling and pugmill solutions. The range has in a relatively brief period developed a reputation that its modern productivity and environmentally friendly attributes are highly suited to aggregate production on a truly global scale.

In addition to the processing of virgin rock and the recycling of construction materials, members of the Screencore ranges have also proved to be ideal processing organic materials for composting and other green waste schemes.

“Screencore continuously engages with our dealers and end-users to innovate and refine our products,” explains company director Ciarán Ryan. “As a result, we have developed a range of crushers, screens, pugmills, stockpilers, and now trommels, that are specifically designed for the efficient handling and processing of a variety of materials.

The new Orbiter trommels, for instance, are particularly adept at producing accurately sized aggregates from primary and secondary sources. Like all our products, the new Orbiter trommels prioritize ease of transport and user-friendliness, ensuring that they meet the practical needs of our customers while setting new standards in the industry.”

Recognised globally

The Screencore Orbiter trommel range, as well as other members of the Screencore product range, has rapidly gained recognition globally, particularly Australasia, Africa, Europe and the United States. For example, in France, an Orbiter 237 trommel, distributed by Screencore’s partner Starloc Auvergne, has been instrumental in processing various materials at a specialized recycling site.

This model is particularly suited to large scale operations with its +7m (23’) drum length and radial fines stacker. Additionally, the Orbiter 237 features a 12m³ (18yd³) dump hopper and is tailored for the largest operators in the industry.

“The 1,200mm (48”) wide feed belt connects to a load sensing drum, ensuring that the machine maximizes productivity autonomously,” explains Ciarán Ryan. “Each element of the Orbiter 237 is specifically designed to ensure continuous operation without the need for constant operator input.”

The Screencore range of Orbiter trommels consists of three models, ranging from the powerful yet compact 125, to the 237, which is aimed at the larger producers.  The Orbiter 125 is designed for work sites where space is at a premium and ideal for a contractor who needs to relocate quickly and often.

The Orbiter 175 delivers high productivity from a compact chassis and features hydraulic folding conveyors and drum angle adjustment with a large infeed hopper and a Cat 130hp engine.

A new, but yet to be released development, is the Orbiter 206. “The 206 is the very latest Screencore trommel, and we are genuinely excited about it. It will deliver high levels of mobility, cost effectiveness and, ultimately, profitability for its users.

It encompasses all the latest Screencore developed and patented features and will be released in Europe over the coming months,” explains Ciarán Ryan. “Its 20’ x 6’ drum is interchangeable with all other similar models, meaning it can seamlessly fit into an existing fleet and enable the utilization of any  existing stock of spare drums.”

Low cost and low emissions

Often working alongside the Orbiter trommels, Screencore’s stackers also come with power solutions to suit various customer requirements. Now further aiding customers, Screencore has further added to the potential of its flexible cost-effective environmentally friendly trommel range as both its 470 and 480 stockpilers come with an electric motor and can be run attached to an Orbiter trommel.

With this Dual-Power, the trommel itself supplies the power to drive the machine. This means that the screening and stockpiling operation is significantly less expensive and more environmentally friendly as only one power source is being used.

Furthermore, if the trommel is powered from the mains or a gen-set, or is electric powered for example, then emissions are negligible and operating costs are a fraction of a traditional set-up.

“With their sturdy construction, accurate sizing, and penny pinching running costs, Screencore’s Orbiter range – and accompanying stockpilers – has proved on numerous occasions to be the ideal solution for recycling and processing of primary and secondary aggregates.

In addition to flexible power solutions, including Dual-Power, we also offer a complete range of bespoke electric trommel systems for indoor operations,” concludes Ciarán Ryan .
