Evaluating Screening Performance

Screening (separating dry material based on particle size) is a complex task that requires sophisticated machinery. An optimized screener needs to be designed with consideration of countless variables, including: Motion: how a screen moves, whether vibratory, gyratory, linear, or stationary, loading mechanics: feed rate/unit area, etc. and material characteristics: particle size distribution, particle shape, bulk density, moisture, friability and static charge.
