New Ultra-Fines Recovery Systems for Mine & Quarry Applications

Posted on Thursday, September 27, 2012

Press Contact: Carol Wasson JCL Marketing, Inc. 260-755-3479 carolwasson@hotmail.com Marketing Contact: Joe Schlabach Deister Machine Company, Inc. 260-426-7495 joes@deistermachine.com DEISTER INTRODUCES NEW ULTRA-FINES RECOVERY SYSTEM FOR REDUCED SETTLING POND USE IN MINE & QUARRY APPLICATIONS FORT WAYNE, IN – SEPT 24, 2012 – Deister Machine Company introduces its new Ultra-Fines Recovery System (UFR), which is designed to recover ultra-fine sands & silts in quarry applications; or to recover tailings in various mining applications, allowing operations to eliminate or greatly reduce the use of maintenance-intensive settling ponds. As a far more cost-efficient alternative to the use of costly plate filter presses, for example, the Deister Ultra-Fines Recovery System enables producers to create a dry tailing or silt product which can be stockpiled prior to removal, or used as a saleable product.   The Deister UFR System is capable of recoveries to 350-400 mesh, and at feed capacities from 1500-3500 GPM. It utilizes a radial distribution manifold for even distribution of solids to all cyclones. The reverse slope vibrating screen is available in sizes up to 7’ wide and 12’ long, with solids capacities up to 70 TPH.   The UFR System Cyclones are available with a variety of liner and body materials. Victaulic connections allow flexibility and ease of maintenance. Optional “Duck Bills” can be attached to the cyclone apex with siphon control to accommodate variable feed solids conditions. The sump is constructed with heavily reinforced ¼” walls and wide flange beam vertical columns.    A sloped bottom plate promotes even solids flow to the pump inlet and an automatically adjusted make-up water valve protects the pump. A sturdy hand railed stairway and platform on both sides and back of the screen allow for safe and easy maintenance access; and several pump configurations are available mounted on a steel frame base pad.

New Deister Exciter Vibrating Mechanism After three years of exhaustive testing, Deister Machine Company is proud to introduce its new Exciter Vibrating Mechanism. The Exciter is designed for use with large linear stroke screens and feeders. Multiple units can be positioned in series, and linked by flexible shaft couplings to provide exceptional B-10 bearing life in conjunction with aggressive G-force. State-of-the-art CNC manufacturing processes ensure tight tolerances and precision fits for the entire assembly.  Innovative seal, shaft and bearing designs provide a rugged unit that is easy to maintain, especially when combined with the Deister System Saver Oil Filtration System. Removable external counterweight slugs allow for easy output force adjustment over a wide speed range.  The Exciter Mechanism can be driven by V-belts or direct drive flexible shaft. Deister Isolation Base As an option for large screens, the Deister Isolation Base incorporates a secondary set of support springs, as well as shock absorbers, which further isolate the forces generated by the vibrating screen frame from the stationary structure. This Isolation Base is also beneficial in reducing the size and complexity of the support structure under and around the vibrating screen.                                                                   -more- Family-owned for more than a century, 2012 marks Deister’s 100th anniversary as a preferred provider of vibrating feeding, scalping and screening equipment to the crushed stone, sand and gravel, asphalt, coal, coke, slag and ore processing industries.

Deister Machine Co-owner & Chairman Irwin Deister Marks 60 Years of Company Service

Posted on Monday, November 21, 2011

Fort Wayne, IN - Deister Machine Company, Inc., is proud to announce that Co-Owner & Chairman Irwin F. Deister, Jr., has recently celebrated 60 years of service to the family-owned company, which is nearing its century-long mark as a leading manufacturer of feeding, scalping and screening equipment for the aggregate and mining industries. Irwin F. Deister, Jr., chairman, and E. Mark Deister, president, represent the family’s third generation at the company’s helm. Irwin and Mark act as co-chief executive officers, each owning 50 percent of the shares, and together forming the board of directors. Their grandfather, Emil Deister, who designed and built one of the first ore separating tables, founded the company in 1912 and began operations in a 5,500 square-foot plant in Fort Wayne, Indiana. The original plant is still in use amidst a total operation that today spans more than 350,000 square feet within its four factory facilities. Irwin Deister is a past chairman of the Manufacturers and Services Division of the National Stone Association, while Mark Deister served as chairman of the National Aggregates Association. Each is a life member of the board of the NSSGA, and both are dedicated to ongoing community service and a policy of donating five percent of annual profits to local charities. The Deister team is also committed to its 160-member employee family, many of whom have served the company for 20 to 40 years and beyond. The entire organization is committed to maintaining long-term customer relationships developed over decades of superior support and service that has resulted in the innovations, improvements and customization of Deister equipment. Before starting full time with the company in 1951, Irwin Deister attended the University of Michigan, where after completing two years in the Engineering School, he transferred to the Liberal Arts Department and received his Bachelor’s Degree in 1951. He is also a veteran of the U.S. Army where upon completion of study at the U.S. Army Finance School at Fort Benjamin Harrison, Indianapolis, he was retained there as an instructor for 1 ½ years. He has been married to his wife, Jane, for 54 years and is the father of two daughters, and a grandfather of four. Following in the footsteps of their fathers and grandfather, who remained “on the job” well into their 90s, neither Irwin nor Mark are planning to retire anytime in the near or even far future. Each feels that “it is a pleasure and a privilege to serve this industry.”
