Ultrasonic deblinding systems supply sound screening solution
A company installs ultrasonic deblinding systems on its vibratory screeners to eliminate problems caused by screen blinding.
Reading Alloys Inc., Robesonia, Pa., supplies advanced engineered materials to the medical, electronics, and other industries. The company provides customers in the medical industry with titanium powders with particle size distributions ranging from 300 to 45 microns. These powders are used to make various medical devices and equipment. When customers began requesting more titanium powders with particle sizes less than 100 microns and extremely narrow particle size distributions, the company ramped up its screening operation to meet their needs. However, because of excessive screen blinding, the company’s vibratory screeners were unable to produce the necessary size distributions at the required production rates. To improve the screening operation’s efficiency, the company needed to find an effective way to prevent screen blinding.
