Carrier requirements

The MISU Screening Unit sources its power from the carrier units hydraulic system.

The key criteria when selecting and matching a MISU screen to a carrier unit ultimately depends on two variables:

  1. The carrier units weight - so the bucket and carrier unit are balanced and does not to exceed the static tipping load of the carrier
  2. The carrier units hydraulic horsepower

When an order for a MISU screen occurs all specifications and variables are calculated out according to the specific carrier unit.

Excavator Units

Excavator machines need to be piped for 'Bi-Directional Flow' to run the screen in two directions or clockwise or anticlockwise directions.

The pressure in the circuit must be limited to no more than 200 Bar (2,900 p.s.i) and hydraulic oil flow set to the manufacturers specification's.

Loader Units

Loader units run off the 'Four-in-one' system, or the '3rd hydraulic function'

The pressure in the circuit must be limited to no more than 200 Bar and hydraulic oil flow set to the manufacturers specification's.

Skid Steer Units

Skid Steer units run off the attachment hydraulic flow system.

The pressure in the circuit must be limited to no more than 200 Bar and hydraulic oil flow set to the manufacturers specification's.

Ideally the weight of a carrier skid steer machine should be close to 3 ton for balance purposes.
