Top Tower 3000 – The evolution of a project


Top Tower 3000 has by now reached its “maturity” and consequently the efforts of the Technical Office concentrate chiefly on the optimizations relative to the use of the milled material and its ease of maintenance. In fact, these issues were developed at the request of our customers in synergy with those same customers and thanks to suggestions which arose from returns.

For example, in recent years the percentage of milled material used in plants is more and more on the rise and therefore it was decided to adopt various measures to facilitate the use of the milled material and increase the usable quantity: the slides were improved and made more vertical where material could become clogged; they were also heated with electric elements so that the sheet metal where the material slides is already hot even at the beginning of the production (in order to avoid the creation of thermal shock which leads to the clogging of recycled material).

Kits were also prepared to facilitate cleaning operations as well: ladders, platforms, access gangways at the opening points of the various covers, side hatches which open up to the various hoppers under screens; all to allow the operators to be able to carry out the necessary maintenance operations with maximum accessibility and safety.

The position of the pre-separator screw was also changed in order to facilitate maintenance operations and the capacity of the recovered fine material storage hopper was increased.

The great attention of the Fayat group to ecological aspects and operation economy is demonstrated by the fact that the dryer burner is equipped with a dedicated compressor in order to increase vaporization of the fuel with consequent optimization of consumption and emissions.

EVOLUTION was the key word for our Research and Development Office in recent times: for example, to be able to give maximum flexibility to the customer based on their job site needs, the components of motive power in the cab can be prepared with standard electrical connections, or the cabinets can be placed directly on the various units with simplified wiring using Profi-bus technology (this is particularly suited for those plants which must be moved several times during their operational lives in that the electrical wiring operations are certainly made easier.
