Derrick CorporationStaying at the forefront of industrial technology means keeping up with the movers and shakers. That’s why Frontline Construction Equipment chooses to partner with Derrick Corporation, a leader in materials separation technology since 1951. We’re an authorized factory dealer of Derrick equipment, including screening machines, shakers, agitators, motors, and more. In this article, we’ll examine the history of innovation that led us to join this powerhouse of separation technology.

The Beginning

H. William “Bill” Derrick Jr. founded the company in 1951. Right from the start, they created revolutionary products. Bill Derrick himself invented several, including the four-bearing high-speed screen vibrator for minerals separation in mining. This invention pushed mining materials handling to new heights of efficiency and output through its innovative features.

To this day, Derrick retains their roots in the mining industry and provides high-efficiency screens and screening machines:

  • The new Front-to-Back Dry Screening Machine offers up to 50 percent increases in separation efficiency. Rotating screen panels allow superior distribution of particles across screens, creating a highly efficient flow of materials.
  • Derrick’s Polyweb® synthetic screens offer the best of both urethane and wire screens. Quality materials and innovative design combine urethane screen durability with wire screen performance and efficiency.

Expanding Derrick’s Reach

Over the next half-century and beyond, they expanded their reach into a variety of industries. They coupled their relentless drive for innovation with a deep need to make the world a better place. While continuing to supply creative solutions to the mining industry, Derrick entered the petroleum drilling and civil construction industries.

In 1997, Bill Derrick’s Integrated Vibratory Motor technology entered a new generation of products. The IVM’s superior technology serves the industry to this day in the form of Derrick’s Super G shaker motor series. The Super G’s vibratory screening power increases fluid handling efficiency in several important ways:

  • Enables earlier and finer screening of cuttings.
  • Earlier and more efficient separation means fewer shakers are necessary.
  • Permanent bearing lubrication makes remote lubrication systems obsolete.

Derrick Corporation Today

Sixty-plus years in, Derrick shows no signs of slowing down. They’ve refined their mission for the new millennium and refocused their commitment to their global family. The company continues to lead the industry into the future with a renewed concentration on environmental sustainability and new technology.

Their Hyperpool shaker series, introduced in 2013, provides a perfect example of how Derrick continues to push the boundaries:

  • The series features the Super G Integrated Vibratory Motor.
  • Screen compression technology allows lightning-fast panel changes.
  • Concave screen design provides up to 35% production capacity increase over competing products.

Frontline Construction’s relationship with Derrick Corporation allows us to integrate their high-quality American-made equipment into our custom equipment solutions packages. To find out about the wide range of options we offer, call 305-257-9371 or use our contact form.

used foundation drilling equipmentA building is only as strong as its foundation. In order to construct a good, sturdy foundation, you need the proper equipment. Many manufacturers make foundation machinery. However, you can’t trust all of them to supply you with the best quality equipment. This is especially true when you are looking for used items. When looking for the best used foundation drilling equipment these are the three brands you can count on:

Casagrande

Casagrande has been making exceptional foundation equipment for over 40 years. Extremely reliable, around 95 percent of their machines are still in operation. The company produces a variety of products, including crawler drills, soil mixers, hydromills, and cranes.

Casagrande equipment available at Frontline Construction

Currently at Frontline we have this Casagrande hydraulic crawler drill. It comes with a soundproofed Deutz diesel engine. It is also completely radio-remote-controlled.

Soilmec

Although not quite as old as Casagrande, Soilmec is also a staple in the construction industry. Their foundation drilling equipment is known for its technology. Their offerings include drilling, rotary, and piling rigs.

Soilmec equipment available at Frontline Construction

In stock now is this R 412 drilling rig built in 2002. This equipment is in very good condition and is mounted on a Caterpillar 325 B excavator.

Klemm

Often when a foundation needs building, construction companies insist on equipment from Klemm. This is because the company has an outstanding reputation for quality and innovation. Klemm produces more than 25 different drill rig models ideal for any type of application. They also make hydraulic hammers, power packs, rotary drives, and many drilling accessories.

When you need quality used foundation drilling equipment, you can rely on Frontline to supply you with it. We have been helping construction companies get the machinery they need at prices they can afford for over 30 years.

Viper MetalViper Metal is a Finnish company well-known in the ground engineering industry. For decades the company has been a producer of quality tools and machinery. They make this equipment specifically to meet two important needs: screening and crushing. Viper Metal manufactures top-of-the-line buckets to handle each application.

Viper Metal screening buckets

Any type of equipment meant for construction or earth-moving capabilities has to be strong. This is why Viper Metal makes their buckets with high quality steel. But just because they are comprised of steel does not make them very heavy. Their screening buckets use hydraulic motors for the screening process. These buckets are ideal for the screening of a number of materials, including:

  • Top soil
  • Wood and timber
  • Peat
  • Bio-materials

Other uses for Viper Metal screening buckets

Extremely versatile, Viper Metal screening buckets have many uses aside from screening. They are ideal for filling holes, and they can also help with composting. In addition, these buckets can also add elements to the soil for stabilization purposes.

Viper Metal crushing buckets

In addition to screening, crushing is another key component of ground engineering. Viper Metal makes buckets that can crush almost anything, including bricks, concrete, rocks, and asphalt. The secret behind the effectiveness of their crushing buckets has to do with their rotators. Not only do they crush, but they grind at the same time. This design grinds down any hard material to the appropriate size.

Frontline Construction can find you the Viper Metal products you need

For over 30 years Frontline has built up a loyal base of customers. This is because companies know that we carry excellent equipment from the leading manufacturers, including Viper Metal. You can count on us to track down items not currently in our inventory. Get in touch with us today to talk about your needs and how we can help.

Brunner & LayFor high quality construction and mining tools, Brunner & Lay is a name that stands above the rest. At Frontline Construction Equipment, they’re one of our most trusted and most popular manufacturers. We love their products because they share our values –safety, reliability, value and efficiency.

The firm has a classic American success story. They began operations as a small Chicago blacksmith shop in 1882. Through hard work and quality products, they’ve become a household name in rock and pavement breaking equipment.

A Short History of Brunner & Lay

  • Founding: Edward Brunner and Severin Lay began forging their own tools in their blacksmith’s shop in 1882. By the turn of the century, they had moved into the burgeoning pneumatic tool market.
  • Perseverance: Brunner & Lay survived the Great Depression by making tools for the WPA, including some that helped build the Hoover Dam. They moved on to aiding the Allied effort in World War II, and expanded into larger facilities twice before 1950.
  • Innovation: From the 1950s onward, the firm continued developing innovative products. They began producing tungsten carbide bits in 1951 and added pit carburizing furnaces to increase bit strength in 1972.
  • Expansion: Throughout the late 20th and early 21st century, the firm continually expanded. From Arkansas to Canada to Australia, Brunner & Lay steadily increased their global reach.

Brunner & Lay Products

Brunner & Lay produces three main types of tools: paving breakers, demolition tools, and rock drills. Their manufacturing process uses the highest quality steel available and finishes tools with powerful heat-treated reinforcement.

  • Pavement Breaking: Brunner & Lay leads the world in production and quality of pavement breaking tools. They standardize their tools for use in most widely employed paving breaker machines, and their variety is unmatched.
  • Demolition: Demolition work demands a versatile range of tools. Brunner & Lay bits are available in conical, pyramid, or X-shaped points for different applications. A variety of high-quality chisels rounds out their demolition offerings.
  • Rock Drilling: Brunner & Lay designs their bits to withstand the toughest challenges of tunneling and production drilling. High-quality carburized steel makes their bits stand up to rock in ways that others don’t.

At Frontline, we’re proud to sell only the finest construction and mining equipment, and Brunner & Lay meets our high standards. They’re one among dozens of industry-leading brands that we sell used and new. Our team of professionals will put together a custom heavy equipment solution designed specifically for the needs of your contracts.
