NOVEMBER 2018 • E&MJ 75 EQUIPMENT GALLERY features a more powerful X-ray system. With higher levels of belt occupancy, facilitated by improved data processing, the particle size of the feed can also be increased, thereby raising the machine's capacity and creating a new industry benchmark, the company reported. Depending on the material, the TOMRA COM XRT 2.0 can accommodate up to dou- ble the maximum size of the previous TOM- RA model, from 60 mm up to 125 mm. Tracked Hydroseeders to Re-seed Diffi cult Terrain PRINOTH reported its PANTHER T8 and T2 hydroseeders are designed to restore de- stroyed vegetative areas ruined by frequent vehicle passage during excavation activi- ties. The tracked hydroseeders spray seeds on the ground to promote vegetative growth in swamps or forests that are otherwise in- accessible or impenetrable. The series of- fers the biggest payloads in the industry, up to 20,865 kg, the company reported. Multifrequency Screening Solutions for Wet Materials Astec Mobile Screens reported the GT205 multifrequency screen, as a component of the GT205 plant, is fi eld-proven and the foundation of successor technology devel- opment. The plant combines a convention- al, two-bearing vibrator, traditionally used on an incline screen with a high-frequency vibrator on the bottom deck for a system that operates with a higher G-force. The energy enables the multifrequency screen to process material with higher moisture content. The company announced the launch of the same technology on a por- table PTSC205 plant and GT145 track screen. Astec Mobile Screens reported it plans to offer multifrequency technology for all of its 5-ft-wide, two-deck screens. Above-belt Conveyor Volume Scanner Loadscan launched its conveyor volume scanner (CVS), which the company de- scribed as a reliable tool to measure the material moved by a conveyor belt. The above-belt lidar laser measurement system offers a software- and Web-based user in- terface, and features a reporting capability. It can track production rates in real time, the company reported. An onboard API en- ables setting up a list of jobs from a dis- patch system to deliver the specifi ed job quantities, which can be reported directly to the loader operator's cab, allowing the
