Superior Releases New Tandem Screen Portable Plant


Superior Industries Inc. launched a new portable plant configuration – the Tandem Guardian Screen Plant. The unit, which includes both a primary and secondary screen, gives operators more options for processing material and expands an application’s potential tons per hour produced. 

Superior engineers designed the Guardian Horizontal Screen with a number of unique features to improve usability and maintenance. 

  • Patent-pending bottle jack lifting points simplify and speed spring replacement and improve safety.
  • A segmented belt guard and sectioned tailgate greatly lighten the loads of these two features, requiring only one person to remove and return the guards and gates during maintenance.
  • Exclusive to Superior, and new to the industry, are bolt-locking, hinged access doors. The convenient feature allows access for screen media maintenance and hinges prevent operators from misplacing the spillage-preventing doors.
  • A 100-percent fully-enclosed belt guard ensures maximum safety while an integrated, onboard tensioner accelerates maintenance to the motor belt.

The unit’s screens are designed with extended top deck discharge lips for accurate material transfer onto cross conveyors. The plant includes two 7- x 20-ft. triple-deck screens, each with 50-hp, 1,200-rpm motors. Custom sizes are available.
