Screening Bucket


Displayed for the first time at the 2011 ConExpo-Con/Agg show, the EXC180 screening bucket from Flip Screen Australia Pty Ltd, is suitable for 40- to 50-ton excavators. The EXC180 features a bucket opening of 96 in. x 24 in., and offers a screening capacity of approximately 2.3 cu. yd. (full internal capacity is 6.9 cu. yd.).  Intended for tough applications, the unit includes a host of features designed to enhance durability such as double-size vanes and thick wall plates. Additionally, the interchangeable screens are built from high-tensile steel mesh for enhanced strength and durability. There are seven standard screen sizes ranging from 1/2 to 4 in., with custom sizes available upon request. The EXC180 replaces the excavator’s bucket and works by rotating 360-degrees continuously, on a single axis. In a clockwise motion, the EXC180 removes smaller particles through an easily interchangeable screen, while a baffle retains larger material, up to the size of a 44-gal. drum, so that it may be dumped separately.  Flip Screen Australia Pty Ltd., www.flipscreen.net
