Gyratory reciprocating screeners

October 1, 2010


Separating dry materials at high-production rates, ROTEX screeners provide a gyratory reciprocating motion of the near-horizontal screen surface to give undersize material an increased opportunity to pass through the mesh openings without the loss of near-size material; the motion also produces a continuous cleaning action to prevent material from lodging in the mesh openings. A gyratory motion at the feed end stratifies the material over the full screening surface. A nearly linear reciprocating motion at the discharge end removes particles closest in size to the mesh openings while gently conveying the quality material off the screen. Screeners include 1 to 5 screen surfaces for separations with openings 1/2 in. to 325 mesh. Optional floor mounting, cable suspension and mounting on a structural steel framework are available.
