Superior Industries Launches Standard Designs for Portable Screen/Wash Plants


SuperiorSuperior Industries Inc. has launched a new set of standard designs for its portable processing plants including a Guardian Screen Plant, Twin Screw Wash Plant and Aggredry Wash Plant. The standard features, including new elements exclusive to Superior, are designed to speed setup, improve processing efficiencies and reduce aggravating maintenance caused by inefficient designs.

Guardian Horizontal Screen Brand new from Superior, the company’s American-made triple shaft, horizontal screen includes unique features like bottle-jack lifting points for spring replacement, fully-enclosed belt guards with integrated tensioning systems and hinged access doors on side plates.

Aggredry Washer Designed to integrate a fine material washer and dewatering screen into a single component, sand processed through an Aggredry Washer has a moisture content of 8 percent. The product requires no drying time and is instantly saleable.

Level Assist New and patent pending, Superior’s Level Assist technology automatically levels a plant once the machinery is raised to a desired height. Historically, owners and operators tediously adjusted cribbing and jacks to level a plant.

Centering Hopper Designed to fold into position during operation, this unique feature allows material to spread uniformly across the full screen deck, which maximizing screening potential through proper feed.

Tilting Motor Base Another innovation to save time during set up or dismantling, a tilting motor base rotates to a travel position allowing owners and operators to transport the plant without having to remove the motor.

In addition to standard designs, Superior is equipped with a growing, in-house engineering department. These engineers and designers, said the manufacturer, allow the company to continue customizing chassis designs to match unique customer applications or preferred specifications.
