What is Screening Equipment, and how does it work?

Screening equipment is the machinery that is used to separate one material from another during mechanical screening procedures. Screening equipment is used in the second portion of the material handling process to filter raw material from a crusher or quarry into finer grades, bringing it closer to an end product.

Screening equipment might be self-contained, depending on the use. When screening equipment is combined with a crusher, a full-circuit system is created. These systems function in tandem to ensure a smooth material handling operation. Even though screens can be used without crushers, a full circuit system is the most efficient way to mine and separate resources in order to generate something that can be sold.

What is the purpose of Screening Equipment?

Machines for full circuit or single screening equipment can be designed for a flat surface or an incline. Typically, each machine consists of an engine that generates vibrations, screens that separate the particles, and a catching area. Material is fed into the machine, transported over the screens, and separated using vibration.

Screening equipment is most used in the mining, aggregate, and mineral processing industries. They’re commonly seen in quarries and mines. After being harvested from the ground or crushed, raw material is passed through screening equipment in order to prepare it for sale. The machinery can be used to prepare rocks for paving, salt for road winterization, lime for various industries, and much more.

The Four Most Important Advantages of a Vibrating Screener

Vibrating screens provide distinct advantages over conventional material processing equipment due to their unique design features, including:

Improved material and processing quality

While specific screening equipment is better suited for certain materials, vibrating screens have various advantages in the processing of aggregate and mining minerals. Vibrating screens are particularly well-equipped to suit these sectors’ fineness requirements. Their design, which can create the force needed to separate large particles, allows for easier product recovery, even when working with materials that require much lower size separation. This results in increased yields as well as a superior overall quality of the finished product.

Reduced Operating Costs

Vibrating screens use less energy than more sophisticated technology, which saves firms money over the long term. Only the screen medium needs replacing on a routine basis since higher frequency vibrations are sent straight to the screening surface. This can help to reduce the expenses of maintenance and repair that are sometimes associated with other screening equipment options.

Less downtime and maintenance

Maintenance and downtime due to maintenance or equipment breakdowns can result in significant productivity and financial losses. Many different types of screens are subjected to a lot of wear and tear, especially in high-demand applications like aggregate processing. Vibrating screens, on the other hand, have the advantage of requiring less maintenance and downtime. This is due to their unique design, which focuses on providing just vibratory pressures to the screening surface.

More efficient screening

While there is a large assortment of screening equipment on the market, vibrating screens are an excellent choice when a simple solution with a higher feed flow is required. In fact, vibrating screens perform best when the flow rate is typically greater. The same material throughput on other types of screening equipment could result in screen blinding or a backflow of materials, necessitating a slower input.

GroundWorx Rock and Material Handling equipment

Incline Screeners

RD Olson Screeners will screen sand & gravel, compost, bark products, topsoil, loam, stumps, brick, concrete, asphalt, gypsum coal, slag, log deck waste, and other diverse materials. The patented open throat feeder channels even, consistent material of any size to the screen deck.

RDO Cat & Deutz Diesel powered screeners come fully equipped with a remote controlled grizzly, feed speed control, and emergency stop. These units are available in 5 x 12 and 6 x 16 double and triple deck configurations, on road legal axles with 5th wheel pull, or remote controlled tracks. An optional ball deck and flex mat screens allow these units to screen wet, sticky material at small sizes without plugging or blinding the screens.

North American manufacturing allows owners to access hydraulic components and parts at local supply and repair outlets.

Telsmith

Groundworx offers a full line of Telsmith vibrating screening equipment designed for the aggregate, mining and recycle markets. Incline screens are available for either wet or dry screening applications, and are manufactured in sizes ranging from 3 ft. x 6 ft. up to 8 ft. x 24 ft. These Telsmith units are extremely reliable, high production screeners built around the revolutionary TL shaft assembly, which delivers exceptionally long service life with far less maintenance. The TL live body is available with flat or crowned deck designs, accepting all screen media to deliver optimum performance in tough applications.

The Telsmith Vibrating Grizzly Scalper is ideal for heavy duty scalping of large stone. The Grizzly is a robust and rugged inclined screener that is ideally situated between a feeder and the primary crusher. Fed by an apron or pan feeder, the screener utilizes heavy grizzly bars to absorb the impact from large stone and scalp out the smaller stone. Extra height side plates with liners retain the large material on the screen.

Komplet

Komplet mobile screeners are affordable screeners ideally suited for small to medium-sized operators and contractors who require a versatile product capable of operating in a number of applications such as sand and gravel, aggregates and recycling.
