Agile and compact mobile screen

Metso’s latest mobile screen, the Lokotrack ST2.3, is about to hit our shores, with the first unit set to arrive in New Zealand in July 2020.

The new Lokotrack ST2.3 mobile multi-use screen is set to open up new business opportunities in screening. It is available from MIMICO, which is the sole New Zealand distributor of Metso equipment, parts, and service support.

The Lokotrack ST2.3 brings the proven quality and operational reliability of Lokotrack track-mounted solutions to a completely new lighter-weight screening solution. Thanks to its compact and safety-driven design, the easy-to-use ST2.3 is an ideal solution for entrepreneurs looking to enter the screening business.

"For businesses thinking of expanding their operations into aggregates production, the first logical step is often screening. They can be already working in earthmoving or agriculture applications and want to utilise their existing infrastructure to grow their business," said Garth Taylor, MIMICO’s Crushing and Screening Business Manager.

Best-in-class performance and ease of use for screening operations

The Lokotrack ST2.3 is suitable for a wide range of applications from heavy duty scalping to fine screening and recycling. It has a 1.5m (5') wide screen with matching feeder and conveyor and aggressive stroke up to 13 mm with 5G acceleration that results in the best screening performance in its weight class. The ST2.3 is easy to set up and can be ready to screen in minutes. In most cases the ST2.3 can be easily moved from one site to another using standard trailers.

The ST2.3 comes with the robust Lokotrack-grade design and is suitable for standalone and multistage applications. It is Metso’s most compact mobile screener with wide screen and aggressive stroke. The highly efficient ST2.3 offers the best screening performance in its class, while the machine’s versatility can see it used as a multi-use unit suitable for topsoil, compost, demolition waste, river gravel and blasted rock.

The best screening performance in its class

With the widest screen in its class (1.5m / 5’) the Lokotrack ST2.3 can perform exceptionally across many and varied applications. To cater for this, the top deck of the Lokotrack ST2.3 can be configured with grizzly bars for heavy duty scalping applications, punch plate for large aperture sizing, grizzly fingers for sticky applications or demolition waste, and steel mesh for fine screening tasks. This versatility makes the Lokotrack ST2.3 a truly multi-use screen.

“When just about any feed material can be fed into a screen, screening is accurate, and capacity high, what else is there to consider?” asks Taylor. “Well, what about fuel economy? The ST2.3 gets through only seven litres of diesel per hour, which is a similar amount to a normal diesel car.”

The ST2.3 is a quiet machine that can be operated for three days on a single tank of fuel, with its average fuel economy being close to seven litres per hour.

The ST2.3’s robust Lokotrack design is based on decades of experience at Metso. “The ST2.3 comes with high quality premium parts and components and is backed by MIMICO’s nationwide network, which ensures availability of service support and spare parts,” said Taylor.

With compact size and hydraulic functions, the ST2.3 is all set for easy transport. A simple to use display, easy access maintenance, and standard parts makes the ST2.3 straightforward to own and operate. The Metso IC process control display shows all key information and adjustments.

The stepless adjustment of the belt feeder speed and the screen stroke of up to 13 mm ensures that materials can be screened in tough conditions. And, as shown in a trial with a customer in Finland, the screen media remained clean even in a high humidity environment.
