Vibrating and gyratory screeners: Proper installation yields top performance

A screener [also called a classifier, separator, or sifter] sorts dry bulk materials by size by passing undersize particles through one [or more] screen. Models can use vibration, gravity, or centrifugal force to promote separation and are available in several types to handle materials in various size ranges. This article discusses how to install a vibration-based screener so it accurately classifies material at the capacity you need. The information covers vibrating and gyratory models.

A poorly installed vibrating or gyratory screener can create more problems than it solves in your process. Vibration transmitted to your building's support structure can impair the screener's performance, adversely affect nearby equipment, and even pose safety hazards for your workers. But by taking care when you install the screener, you can ensure that it operates at peak levels and works smoothly and safely as part of your processing line.
