Trommels

We have made trommels to fit Doppstadt 518 and 620 (720) trommel cradles and Tim trommels for the TS 2000 and TS 2500 cradles.

It is worth noting that either wear plate or mild steel can be used for trommels. However, wear plate is likely to greatly enhance the life of a trommel, normally justifying the extra cost.

Any shape/size of hole is possible. Square holes give the greatest open area but round holes give the greatest uniformity of particle size. Hole size graduation is another option for different trommel sections. This allows greater separation of differing particle sizes. Please note that generally, smaller holes will make the trommel more expensive. Finally, trommels with hole sizes under 30mm, require an additional 2 weeks to make.

We are happy to accommodate your specific requirements.

The construction of a trommel starts after a series of trommel halves have been cut and rolled. These halves are welded together and checked for true.

Trommel Halves

Special care has to be taken to ensure the complete circularity of the trommels shape. The use of spragging at this early stage is wise.

Both ends need solid runner rings so the trommel can rotate.

Here the runner ring for the out feed end has been attached.

The screw which causes the fraction or compost to pass along its length is being welded into place. It is worth noting that this trommel is chain driven as can be seen adjacent to the front ring.

Finally we have a complete trommel.

Here are  a couple of examples of a trommel with large 100mm round holes.
