The BHS Tri-Disc™ Advantage

Patented BHS compound discs are in-line from shaft-to-shaft, creating a precise opening for highly accurate material sizing. The hardened steel discs are shaped to aggressively agitate material while preventing jamming, wrapping and clogging that is seen in other offerings. The agitation breaks glass and spreads material quickly over the width of the screen deck. This superior efficiency utilizes the entire screen, allowing operators to minimize the equipment’s’ footprint.  Patented gear timing paired with variable speed drives allows for fine tuning for varying material conditions.

The Tri-Disc™ agitation and rectangular IFOs not only prevent the clogging and jamming that is seen with trommels, but also keeps material moving. This significantly reduces the burden time and rolling around and mixing with contaminants. It also prevents fines from becoming blocked by larger items or longer items from falling through gaps.
