Inclined Screens

Are used to separate the material into different size categories

Inclined Screens

The vibrating Inclined Screen is the most popular type of screen. There are various types of Inclined Screens, including two and four bearing, high-speed, and high-frequency screens. The overwhelming majority of installations today are either two or three decks, though there are single and four deck varieties available as well.

Screens are used throughout material processing to separate and size material prior to and following crushing stages. At the primary stage, large scalping screens remove fine material before the feed enters the primary crusher, helping to protect the crusher’s wear parts from abrasive stone or sand material that has already been sized. Without scalping, the primary crusher’s liners wear down faster, requiring more frequent changes and maintenance downtime.

Following the primary crushing stage, screens with two or three decks and different opening sizes are used to separate the material into different size categories, with conveyors transporting the sized material for further crushing or for stockpiling as a saleable product. Usually this screening is accomplished through dry screens. Wet screens may help to remove debris from material before stockpiling, as clean stone is often required for concrete and asphalt specifications.

When the smaller rock has to be classified a vibrating screen will be used. The simplest Vibrating Screen Working Principle can be explained using the single deck screen and put it onto an inclined frame. The frame is mounted on springs. The vibration is generated from an unbalanced flywheel. A very erratic motion is developed when this wheel is rotated. You will find these simple screens in smaller operations and rock quarries where sizing isn’t as critical. As the performance of this type of screen isn’t good enough to meet the requirements of most mining operations two variations of this screen have been developed.

In the majority of cases, the types of screen decks that you will be operating will be either the horizontal screen or the inclined vibrating screen. The names of these screens do not reflect the angle that the screens are on, they reflect the direction of the motion that is creating the vibration.

The unit consists of the freely suspended screen body and a shaft assembly carried by the screen body. Near each end of the shaft, an eccentric portion is turned. The shaft is counterbalanced, by weighted fly-wheels, against the weight of the screen and loads that may be superimposed on it. When the shaft rotates, eccentric motion is transmitted from the eccentric portions, through the two bearings, to the screen frame.
