Overcoming static problems in your vibratory screen separator
Particles that carry electrostatic charge are difficult to process in commercial vibratory screen separators. Static can cause screen blinding and significantly reduce the efficiency of your vibratory screen separator. While there are no hard and fast rules for overcoming static problems, this article discusses several approaches you can try.
If you suspect that electrostatically charged particles are causing screen blinding and preventing your vibratory screen separator from achieving optimum efficiency, there are several strategies to consider. First, you must establish that electrostatic charge really is the cause of your blinding problem. Start by checking with the manufacturer of your separator to determine if your throughput is reasonable for the material being separated, the size of the machine, and the gyrator frequency.
