General Kinematics (GK), a vibratory equipment manufacturer based in Crystal Lake, Illinois, has introduced the SXS screen, which it says is the first of its kind in the industry. GK says the side-by-side screen is engineered to move less-dense, soft materials that typically do not convey or screen well. 
The screen was developed for municipal solid waste (MSW) and single-stream and commercial and industrial (C&I) materials, but GK adds many other kinds of materials also can be screened. The high stroke transmits more energy into the materials for faster travel speed and better separation, resulting in improved recovery, according to the company. 
The SXS offers lower operating costs and uses up to two-thirds less horsepower than standard machines, according to GK. It also comes with the company’s service and support program.
The first unit will be installed in September 2014, the company says.
