Vermeer expands its electric-powered recycling product line with the addition of the new TR5300EM trommel screen. This new trommel screen is powered by an industrial-duty, fan-cooled 60-hp (44.7-kW) electric motor, and delivers a drum speed of 0-24 revolutions per minute to handle multiple material types, including compost, topsoil and wood biomass. The quiet operating TR5300EM also features a low hopper infeed with a capacity of 5.5-yd3 (4.2 m3) and includes new service and operating enhancements. The Vermeer TR5300EM is an excellent addition to recycling and organic material processing companies looking to help reduce exhaust emissions, noise levels and maintenance.

According to Jay Van Roekel, product manager for Vermeer Recycling and Forestry products, the demand for electric equipment to process organic material is growing, and the TR5300EM complements the line of electric recycling and processing equipment Vermeer produces. “Many of our horizontal and tub grinders are available with electric motors, as well as the TR626EM trommel screen,” he explained. “The TR5300EM is a more compact unit than the TR626EM, making it an excellent option for processing facilities located in urban environments and companies looking to reduce emissions and maintenance.”

The hydraulically driven drum on the TR5300EM is 15-ft (4.6 m) long and 5-ft (1.6 m) in diameter to optimize material processing and deliver a high-quality end product. Quick-change screens and a quick-change drum help make it convenient and quick to perform sizing adjustments. The TR5300EM also features several access doors to help with servicing and a set of dual-hinged doors on both sides of the machine for full access to the drum at ground level.

The TR5300EM trommel screen overs and fines conveyors are adjustable to help with dust control and allow for precise placement of material. The unit is also equipped with auto overs flaps to help contain material and reduce spillage.

Vermeer also designed this electric trommel screen for ease of maneuverability and transport. “A lot of electric recycling processing machinery in the market is stationary,” explained Van Roekel. “However, the ability to move a machine can help make servicing and cleaning more efficient. The TR5300EM is built on a single-axle frame, making it possible to transport it to another jobsite or move it into storage when it’s not in use, as well as making it convenient for a person performing maintenance or cleaning up material around the unit.”

The TR5300EM can be equipped with several optional accessories, including a grizzly screen to sort out oversized material and a magnetic head pulley for removing unwanted metal. It can also be outfitted with an auger drum and a hopper extension.
