Irock, a manufacturer of mobile screening and crushing equipment based in Valley View, Ohio, has introduced the TS-516 High Capacity Scalper. The company says the scalper, one of five tracked screener units in Irock’s lineup, can improve productivity in a range of applications with greater hopper capacity, larger screens and a wider, oversize conveyor.

Irock designed the TS-516 to be used in a primary crusher circuit for materials such as construction and demolition waste, iron ore, aggregates, coal, recycling and heavy rock. At the same time, the machine is versatile enough to handle sticky clay and topsoil, according to the company.

The scalper is powered by a 129-horsepower, Caterpillar C4.4 engine and is able to process materials at a rate of up to 570 tons per hour, according to Irock. The company adds, equipment can be loaded onto a truck or trailer, making it easy to move from site to site.

Irock adds that the equipment has a total of 157 square feet of screening area having a 16-foot by 5-foot top deck and a 15-foot 4-inch by 5-foot bottom deck. The design allows users to produce and sort products in up to three different sizes, and the decks can be interchanged so customers have more control over end product size, according to the company.

In addition, to accommodate the high productivity of the rest of the machine, the TS-516 features a 63-inch oversize conveyor. With a width that improves on the nearest competitor’s scalper by 15 inches, the conveyor accommodates higher tonnages and alleviates much of the potential for congestion.

Design features and component options further enhance the machine’s durability and flexibility and provide end users more customization control. A rubber belt feeder is standard on the unit, but customers can substitute a Hardox apron feeder.

While the TS-516 comes standard with an attached cord and remote for controlling and maneuvering the scalper around a job site, many customers gain more flexibility with a wireless remote option.
