A vibrating screen is a necessary machine for mining and quarrying industries. In the quarrying field, the screening process always follows the primary and secondary crushing stages to divide rock material into more than three sizes from coarse to fine.
Actually, how many sizes of material do you want to get depends on how many screen decks you adding to the machine, which greatly improves the value of raw material. Besides, the vibrating screen also plays a key role in the ore mining industry where ore beneficiation process has strict requirements on the size of ore. For example, before entering a ball grinding mill, ores must get their size meet a ball mill opening size, and be not containing impurities with the help of a vibrating screen.
The working principle of a vibratory screen is quite simple, which makes it easy to operate. The crucial parts of the machine include vibrating screens, exciter, motor, screen decks, liners, and side plates.
Vibrating source comes from an exciter that transmits vibration to the screen deck by the V-belt, which makes material shaking and distributing evenly on the screen. During the process, the large size of material will stay on the top while the small and fine size material can go throughout the screen mesh to the bottom, then youll get different sizes of materials.
The vibration of screen is generated by an exciter which consists of housing, bearing, shaft and an eccentric mass. In-deep speaking, the motor passing the driving force to exciter by V-belt, and then eccentric mass rotating around the exciter shaft to create vibration.
The screening and frequency can be adjusted by changing the ratio of the V-belt sheaves. The high-quality exciter can performance a force output of 1000 KN, keeping excellent operational performance and economic efficiency.
The task of the balance wheel is to ensure centrifugal forces evenly distributing around the axis of rotation, otherwise, the unbalanced cause the pulley to vibrate thus leading to premature or even catastrophic failure.
An inclined vibrating screen is one of the most popular screening machines. The inclination of this type of screen is at the range of 15 to 30 degrees. Screening stroke can be adjusted by remove or add eccentric mass and is generally at 8mm to 12mm.
The inclined screen utilizes gravity to help material move downward. Besides, the circular motion also helps to separate coarse and fine material. This type of vibrating screen is often applied in stone crushing, sand making, ore processing, construction waste recycling, wet screening, and chemical fields.
The inclination angle of the horizontal vibrating screen is between 0 degrees and 5 degrees, almost parallel to the ground. It is equipped with a triple drive mechanism that combines advantages of linear and circular vibration types in elliptic vibration.
The triple drive mechanism can keep material moving horizontally under the help of linear vibration while avoid them plunging because of the circular vibration. A horizontal screen has a simple structure, reliable performance, and large capacity, and can overcome any condition. So, it is the most practical vibrating screen in the quarrying field.
The outstanding feature of a high-frequency screen is high frequency and low amplitude, which ensures a faster material speed thus greatly improving screening efficiency. It is perfect for screening feeds containing solid and crushed ores down to approximately 200m in size.
It is mostly used in dehydration wet screening in which a filtering layer on the screen surface can block the passage of fine material thus reducing the loss of solid materials in water and improving the recovery rate of solid. It is applied for screening and separating iron ore, tin ore, tungsten, tantalum, and niobium, etc.
