Create three fractions from a single material stream with the Backers three fraction MTA (tracked and wheeled) star screen. By initially passing all material over the course deck, even wet or sticky organics are loosened increasing the overall screening efficiency and producing a more consistent medium and fines product. Add the optional Grizzly, and a fourth very course fraction can be produced; or attach an optional Wind Sifter to remove contaminants from both screening decks. For ultimate flexibility and throughput Backers three-fraction star screens are unparalleled.
Optional Wind Sifters
Remove paper, plastic and other contaminants from either or both screening decks with an optional wind sifter.
Source material is automatically metered onto the screen decks, producing maximum results with both medium and fine fractions.
Material is loosened before feeding to the fines deck for more effective, and consistent fines screening.
Material is evenly spread across both screening decks, minimizing star exposure and reducing wear.

We either screen the fines back into the mulch or use it for our compost or soil product. With less fines in the stringy mulch product that goes through the dying process, less dye and water is expended."Max P., Operations Manager
The busy season in mulch production is when efficient companies thrive while many others run out of finished product to meet demand. High-quality mulch is usually bought up pretty fast and the… Read More
