Flip Screen Australia, a designer and manufacturer of an award-winning
line of screening attachments, launches the new EXC180 screening bucket.
Suitable for 40- to 50-ton excavators, the attachment is the largest
excavator-mounted model in the Flip Screen lineup. The EXC180 is built
durable and rugged to handle the most demanding applications in a
variety of industries including aggregates and road building,
construction, demolition, landfill, mining, public works, railway and
waste recycling. The unit was displayed for the first time at last
month’s CONEXPO-CON/AGG tradeshow in Las Vegas.

 Flip Screen EXC180


 

The EXC180 replaces the excavator’s bucket and works by rotating
360-degrees continuously, on a single axis. In a clockwise motion, the
unit removes smaller particles through an easily interchangeable screen,
while a baffle retains larger material, such as steel and concrete up
to the size of a 44-gallon drum, so that it may be dumped separately.
Upon completion of the screening process, the EXC180 switches to a
clockwise rotation to eject material. For added screening efficiency,
the attachment is fitted with four high-tensile steel, heavy-duty punch
plate cassettes.

Designed for simple, easy operation, the EXC180 requires minimal effort
from the equipment operator. Simply scoop desired material and activate
the auxiliary hydraulics, and two Eaton 10,000-series hydraulic motors
power the bucket rotation. The bucket’s rotation speed is controlled by
the operator via hydraulic flow and is variable between 18 to 25 RPM.

For further operator comfort, the unit’s smooth motion and rotation
eliminates jarring, shaking and vibration. This also eliminates added
stress on the carrier, reducing maintenance and enhancing excavator
life.

The EXC180 features a bucket opening 96 inches wide by 24 inches high,
and offers a screening capacity of approximately 2.3 cubic yards (full
internal capacity: 6.9 cubic yards). Total screening surface area is 96
square feet.

Intended for tough applications, the EXC180 includes a host of features
designed to enhance durability. Double-size vanes, thick wall-plates,
heavy-stiffener deflector plates, tough baffle supports, a baffle impact
plate, and arm- and drain-plug protectors have been integrated to
increase the unit’s robustness and strength.

Additionally, the interchangeable screens are built from high-tensile
steel mesh for enhanced strength and durability. Seven standard screen
sizes are offered, ranging from 0.5 to 4 inches, with additional, custom
sizes available upon request. The EXC180 comes equipped with choice of
one mesh screen, and additional screens can be packaged into the
purchase. Screen change out is quick and simple, and is done in less
than five minutes by one operator, with no tools required.

Other optional equipment includes a reversible bolt-on leading edge or
durable, high-strength teeth. The leading-edge breaks into tough,
hard-packed material, while teeth are useful for cutting into the most
rigid, compacted material.
