tr620_actionSeptember 26, 2014, Pella, Iowa — Vermeer introduces a new
trommel screen that features a new design allowing for an optional third
product conveyor to optimize productivity. The TR620 is able to handle the
majority of screening needs for biomass producers.

 

“This new trommel screen can fit into a smaller space than
our other models, which is a requirement for customers who have a limited
amount of space on their site,” said Jeff Bradley, product manager for
recycling and forestry at Vermeer. “We listened to contractors who told us they
wanted a trommel that could produce three separate products without running the
material through the machine twice. That is why we developed the optional third
conveyor.”

 

The standard TR620 is equipped to separate material into two
sizes based on screens selected. The optional front fines conveyor permits the
creation of three unique products from incoming material without the need for
another processing step or additional machine. The front fines conveyor can be
mounted on either side of the trommel screen for additional jobsite
flexibility.

 

As with the other Vermeer trommel screens, the TR620
features the intuitive Vermeer ACS control system. The TR620 can be controlled
through either the Vermeer DP10 display, which is mounted on the machine’s
control panel, or with a handheld transceiver remote. This allows the operator
to have complete control of the trommel whether standing nearby or operating
from a loader. Four user-defined program buttons enable operators to easily
return to previously used settings when screening multiple material types. The
remote also gives the flexibility to make immediate adjustments when incoming
material type or volume changes. Operators can also adjust the conveyor height
from the remote if necessary to help reduce blowing material.

 

Quick-change tensioned screens help reduce the time required
to change screens, which is especially important when processing a wide range
of materials that require different end products. A large door allows for drum
access and removal in addition to providing ease of serviceability. Square lift
bars inside the drum enable more material to be processed at a slower speed,
helping to reduce fuel consumption and prolong drum life.

 

The TR620 features a 120-horsepower (89.5 kW) Cummins Tier 4
Interim (Stage IIIB) engine that meets all U.S., Canada and European emissions
standards.
