Tool Guide: The Innovative Simex VSE Screener Bucket

Founded in 1991 in Persiceto, Italy, Simex has been a trailblazer in the realm of hydraulic attachments, providing cutting-edge solutions to industries such as construction, road building, quarrying, agriculture, and landscaping worldwide. In 2022, Al Marwan Heavy Machinery cemented an exclusive partnership with Simex, bringing an array of genuine heavy equipment attachments and OEM replacement parts to the UAE market.

How the Screener Bucket Is Made

The Simex VSE screener bucket is an innovative product designed to transform an excavator into a versatile mobile processing plant. Each bucket in the VSE range is built using robust HARDOX steel and is specified for excavators weighing between 1.5 to 45 tons. The product promises an efficient way to obtain different-sized materials using just one screener bucket.

A highlight of Simex's ingenuity is their patented screening system, which permits rapid adjustment of the output size in seconds via a control unit inside the base machine's cabin. The system can alter the spacing between the shafts up to 40mm in each direction, saving valuable time while offering adaptability to different materials.

Quarries and Demolition Sites

In the challenging environments of quarries and demolition sites, screener attachments play a pivotal role. They facilitate the sorting and separation of debris, ensuring that reusable materials are efficiently screened and sorted for further processing or recycling.

Landscaping Projects

When it comes to landscaping, screener attachments prove to be invaluable. They are excellent at screening mixed soil to achieve uniformity and quality, thereby ensuring that the groundwork is laid perfectly for landscaping tasks.

Construction and Earthmoving

For construction and earthmoving projects, a screener attachment is leveraged for processing aggregates. They enable contractors to sift through large volumes of material on-site, reducing the need for transportation and ensuring timely project completion.

Agriculture and Horticulture Applications

Screener attachments are used to refine and select topsoil, ensuring optimal conditions for plant growth. They are efficient at handling wet soil mixed with stone, gravel, and clay, producing an output that is ideal for cultivating crops or beautifying gardens.

Waste Processing

Screener attachments are also instrumental in waste management and bio-waste processing. They aid in sorting and separating organic materials from mixed waste, contributing to efficient recycling and waste reduction.

Road Maintenance and Backfilling

In road maintenance and backfilling tasks, screener attachments ensure that the materials used are free of unwanted debris, leading to high-quality and durable road surfaces.

The Simex VSE Screening Bucket Lineup at a Glance

The Italian manufacturer offers a diverse product range, accommodating a wide array of excavators with different capacities ranging from 0.05 to 1.80 cubic meters.

- VSE 40

This model is an ideal match for 30 to 45-ton excavators. With an impressive loading capacity of 1.80 cubic meters, it requires an oil flow of 180 to 280 liters per minute. It stands out for its recycling configuration in the FIT system shafts, making it highly suitable for recycling demolition waste and backfilling tasks in construction and road maintenance projects.

- VSE 30

This model is designed for 16 to 30-ton excavators. It offers a substantial loading capacity of 1.0 cubic meter while requiring an oil flow of 165 to 220 liters per minute. Equipped with a mixed tool configuration on the FIT system chart, it’s equipped with blades adept at crushing frozen and lumpy materials. It excels in processing bio-waste and selecting topsoil from reclaimed mixed and rocky soil, making it highly effective for horticulture, landscaping, agriculture, and excavation applications.

The lineup includes screener buckets suitable for excavators in the ranges of 1.5 to 3 tons, 4 to 8 tons, 8 to 13 tons, and 12 to 18 tons. VSE buckets facilitate efficient loading due to their wide openings and adjustable shafts, which can produce fragments sizes ranging from 0 to 15 mm, 15 to 55 mm, and greater than 55 mm.

A unique feature is that these buckets don't require mechanical adjustments to change the output size, ensuring seamless on-site operations even with wet and muddy materials.

The New FIT System

What makes these VSE screener attachments exceptional is the introduction of the FIT screening system. It allows operators to configure the screening elements according to the materials, offering three main configurations: recycling, disaggregation, and mixed.

Each element in the FIT system consists of five independent, easily interlocking parts that negate the need for welding. This design choice leads to a significant 75% reduction in maintenance costs as only single elements need replacement without disassembling the shafts.

Recycling Configuration

A sought-after choice for projects that involve screening mixed materials like dry clay, gravel, silt, and peat. This configuration is tailored to provide outputs that are generally used for padding and bedding in utility and pipe contracting. Designed to handle a variety of materials, this setup ensures that the separation process is smooth and efficient, contributing to streamlined operations on-site.

Disaggregation Configuration

Crafted for high-efficiency screening, specifically targeting soil, peat, clay, and vegetable waste. By focusing on refining the materials at a granular level, this configuration proves indispensable for topsoil selection in horticulture and landscaping applications. The finely screened output is ideal for fostering plant growth and ensuring a pristine landscape.

Mixed Configuration

It combines elements of both recycling and disaggregation configurations, creating a versatile setup. It is particularly effective on humid soil mixed with stone, gravel, and clay. This configuration is geared towards volumetric reduction, light crushing, and topsoil screening, making it a preferred choice for horticulture and agriculture applications.

The FIT system also allows easy on-site replacement of elements using basic tools, like a hammer and punch, without any need for welding. Additionally, the blades of the screener attachment can be reinforced to prevent abrasion and corrosion, thereby prolonging the tool's lifespan.
