FINLAY have announced the successful production and launch of their brand-new 890 mobile scalping screen. 

Known for their high production capacity, efficiency, and durability, the Finlay range of scalpers offers robust and versatile solutions for a range of applications from fine screening to heavy scalping. The Finlay 890 is a welcome addition to the line-up, with the ability to process a high tonnage throughput of up to 700 tonnes/h, depending on mesh sizes and material type.


The highly versatile 890 tracked scalper features an aggressive, heavy-duty double-deck screen for secondary screening in applications, such as aggregates, sand and gravel, topsoil, and recycling of construction and demolition waste. 

It has a modular configuration, with a 6.1m x 1.8m (20ft x 6ft) top deck and 5.6m x 1.8m (18ft x 6ft) bottom deck screen, and offers a variety of media options, including abrasion-resistant punched plates, bofor bars, tines, and a selection of heavy-duty mesh sizes. Equipped with a hydraulic raise screen box function, the Finlay 890 offers convenient access to the bottom deck media for maintenance or replacement. 

The discharge conveyors on the 890 scalper have individual variable speed controls, giving operators the ability to choose precise speeds for specific applications. Adaptability is further enhanced with the capability to interchange both side conveyors in the field, either on the same or opposite sides. Additionally, the Finlay 890 model can transition into a two-way split configuration, effectively ejecting oversized materials from both the top and bottom decks.

The fully self-contained plant can be hydraulically folded and ready for transport in less than 30 minutes, making it the ideal machine for large-scale contract screening projects where a highly productive and dependable screen is key.

The Finlay 890 is available with hybrid technology consisting of on-board electrical motors, offering the flexibility to run the plant from an outside power supply or standard on-board engine.

Alan Witherow, product and applications manager at Finlay, commented: ‘We are excited to announce the production of our first 890 scalping screen. The Finlay 890 boasts advanced features and capabilities for operators seeking high-performance screening solutions. Its versatility ensures suitability across a wide range of applications, reinforcing Finlay's commitment to engineering excellence and our dedication to providing our customers with cutting-edge equipment that meets and exceeds their expectations.’
