Haver & Boecker introduce Ty-Rail quick-tensioning system

Screen tensioning system

Latest system designed to solve common problem of time-intensive screening media change-outs 

HAVER & Bocker have launched their patented Ty-Rail quick-tensioning system which has been specially designed to solve the common problem of time-intensive screen panel change-outs. 

Replacing tension rails can be a time-consuming process and requires removing and replacing many pieces of hardware per screen section. Washers or bolts are often dropped and lost in the process, which adds to further downtime and parts costs. 


‘We continue to lead the aggregates and mining industries in innovation by focusing on improving efficiency,’ said Karen Thompson, president of Haver & Boecker Canada. ‘Our engineers’ invention of the Ty-Rail system solves the long-time problem of lost parts and difficult, time-consuming screen panel change-outs. Our customers will experience increased uptime and, as a result, increased profits by using this revolutionary tension rail system.’

The system was developed and designed by a team of engineers led by Dieter Takev, Haver & Boecker vice president of engineering and technology. ‘We’re continually looking for ways to minimize the challenges mines and quarries face,’ he commented. ‘Our team spent countless hours brainstorming and discussing some of the biggest issues we saw during our many site visits and heard about in discussions with customers. After nearly two years of design, development and testing, Ty-Rail is ready to serve and improve our customers’ operations.’

The Ty-Rail package includes two tension rails, eight angle boxes, eight bolts and all the hardware required to change a screen section. Once installed, each rail becomes a singular, removable piece since the bolts remain attached to the rail and the angle boxes remain attached to the vibrating screen. 

To remove the tension rails, an operator simply loosens the bolts, shifts the angle boxes up and lifts the rail and bolts out as one piece. This reduces screen media change-out times by 50%, along with manpower as the task of changing tensioned screen media panels can be carried out by one person instead of two people. 

Ty-Rail is designed specifically for Haver & Boecker’s Tyler vibrating screens and is now standard on all new F-Class and T-Class machines. Producers can refurbish older Tyler vibrating screens and add the new Ty-Rail system.

‘For decades, our Tyler brand has been leading the way in innovative processing technology and quality,’ commented Karen Thompson. ‘Productivity plays a significant role in production, which is why we developed the Ty-Rail system, to provide our partners in the mining and aggregates industries with a method to simplify tension rail change-outs. Now, producers can significantly reduce downtime and therefore increase their production and profits, achieving better return on investment.’
