About Triple/S Dynamics

A history of innovation and custom engineering.

Triple/S Dynamics traces its roots back to 1888, when Henry Sutton teamed up with Walter and Edwin Steele to pioneer the use of airflow, vibration and electric fields for separating dissimilar materials. They established Sutton, Steele & Steele, as the fifth manufacturing company incorporated in the small, but growing city of Dallas, Texas. By the turn of the century, the company invented the first gravity separators for improving mineral and agricultural products through the separation of off-density materials. In 1925, the firm was recognized by the Franklin Institute of Philadelphia with the John Price Wetherill Award for Discovery, Invention and Development in the Physical Sciences.

In 1959, Sutton, Steele & Steele acquired Overstrom & Sons, a machinery engineering firm founded by Professor Gustave Overstrom which specialized in screening and conveying equipment for the mining and aggregate industries.

The name Triple/S Dynamics was adopted in 1968 to underscore the company’s continued commitment to the development of dynamic vibrating equipment for the processing industries. Since then, Triple/S Dynamics has developed a diverse range of product lines including:

  • Complete plants for reclamation of non-ferrous metals from scrap sources.
  • Rugged, large-capacity vibrating screens for separating foreign material from over 1,000 tons per hour.
  • Some of the world’s largest vibrating conveyors for feeding ferrous scrap into a continuous steel casting process.
  • The Slipstick Conveyor designed for the gentle handling of food, chemical and other fragile dry bulk products.

The spirit of the founders of the organization is the valued heritage of the present. We view our company’s past record of achievements as a means to greater accomplishments in the future, a foundation of experience for new applications, new designs and innovative concepts for the processing industries through research, development, engineering expertise and quality manufacturing.

In 2011, Triple/S Dynamics was acquired by KMC Global.
