Keene is excited to present our New KT10 Trommel!
The KT10 Trommel is ideal for harsh conditions such as high clay content, heavily rooted material, and compacted gravel. The material is fed and washed in the feed hopper that flows into the classifier drum.
The drum with the spray bars and breaker bars thoroughly washes and classifies the material creating the ideal conditions for optimum fine gold recovery in any sluice.
The KT10 is capable of moving serious amounts of material up to one yard per hour and capable of keeping a one or two-man crew busy. The feed hopper, belly pan, and drum end caps are constructed out of bulletproof Polyethylene Cross link plastic incorporating designs you can only get out of a mold.
Keene put a lot of thought and testing before we built these molds and everything works flawlessly. Keene fabricated the Drum out of an aluminum punch plate with replaceable drums of a variety of sizes such as 3/8” 1⁄4” and 1⁄2” for different applications.
Keene has unique flipper bars that can be modified and even removed for different materials. The 5 adjustable articulating legs allow the machine to be set up in the most adverse conditions in just a few minutes also fine-tuning only takes seconds.
The sluice box can run out on either side making it faster and easier to set up, plus you have a perfect view to watch the sluice box load while feeding.
Keene recommends the KT10SA sluice box adaptor, which attaches to our
10” wide sluice box “A52 or A52S” makes a longer sluice box with Miracle Matting, expanded metal,1/8th inch classifier and a long rubber mat to smooth out the flow.
The KT10DC runs off of two 12 Volt DC pumps and A 12-volt motor. The two RP2200 pumps provide the water pressure for the DC motor to spin the drum. Runs roughly 6 hours on a 12-volt battery. Ideal for maintaining a silent low profile operation or when gas engines are not allowed. Use at the water's edge.
Keene’s favorite is the Water driven motor KT10WD. The high-pressure water spins the water motor that drives a planetary gearbox that
spins the drum. The high-pressure P90GH Provides enough water volume and pressure to spin the water motor and provides more than ample water for the spray bars and feed hopper. Works similar to a high banker away from the water.
The KT10 feed hopper sets roughly 2.5 feet above the ground making it easier to shovel into and set buckets on the support for an easily controlled feed. The trommel is a pleasure to work with since the tailings are kicked out 5 feet away keeping you dry. This is truly a fun and effective tool to add to your arsenal from beginners to professionals!
