Screening Solutions by

Screening Specialists

Founded in 1930, W.S. TYLER CANADA operates a Screening Media (TYLER)

and a Vibrating Screen Division (TYCAN) under one roof for over 75 years. The
company philosophy is to provide Screening Solutions by Screening Specialists.

Today, W.S. TYLER CANADA is part of the family owned Haver Group and
the only company in the world capable of supplying all aspects of the renowned
screening circle. The screening circle is a given necessity for any customer that
aims to separate his products according to size. The screening circle contains the
following components:

by four double spherical roller

isolating the vibrating body from
the stationary base frame. The
shaft is supported on the base by
side arm assemblies that are also
isolated on rubber mounting units.

The circle throw motion of the T-CLASS Series is

developed by a counterbalanced shaft assembly,
which is supported by two double spherical roller

to be very effective in moving coarse material to

particles may pass through the media openings.
The T-CLASS Series provides fast and accurate
sizing of materials.

The T-CLASS Series modular design and the use

of standard components result in savings because
TYCAN fabricates and assembles machines cus-

Hydro - Clean

Before Afterwards

Often customers not only require screened product but

cleanly screened products, TYCAN has developed a
technology capable of cleaning material mixtures with
particle sizes ranging from 0-150 mm, with the use of
high pressured water: The TYCAN Hydro Clean.

The result of this technological quantum leap is a high

pressure cleaning system for production rates from 50 to
400 tons of output material per hour. Designed similar to
a household washing machine the contaminated material
is fed into an actual washing chamber by a hopper. Inside
the machine the material builds a column standing on a Typical installation of a Hydro-Clean
conveyor belt, the speed of which controls the through-
put of the material and the washing cycle. To protect the
chamber, its inside is lined with standard polyurethane
screening panels allowing dirty water to escape and
be returned to a settling pond. The constantly recycled
water is fed to jet valves, which rotate at the top of the
washing chamber. As a result the water is injected at
rates from 800 to 2000 PSI and intensely interacts with
the contaminated product by blowing onto the particles
and penetrating porous areas, which friction based wash-
ing technology could never reach. This means the Hydro
Clean is capable of offering never before seen cleaning
degrees. Products thought to be impossible to clean can
now be sold at premium prices.
