In the mineral processing area, the trommel screens(aka. Rotary drum screens) and vibrating screens are both widely used screening & classification equipment. But whats the difference between the trommel screens and vibrating screens, and how to choose the most suitable screens for your mineral processing application? Or even how should we choose the right screening equipment for specific mining conditions?

Thorough we all may know that they are both are widely used screening equipment, but the different working methods and principles also mean the difference in output, as well as the types of materials suitable for screening processing.

Vibrating screens are screened using the exciting force generated by a vibrating motor and belong to vibrating screens. Commonly used mine vibrating screens include circular vibrating screens and linear screens.

The trommel screen is another screening form. During the screening process, the equipment will not vibrate, but generally, the motor and reducer drive the drum to rotate through the bearing. The material in the drum passes through the screen from high to low due to the rotation of the drum. And it is successfully screened out, so the trommel screen belongs to a type of rolling screening.

trommel screen: It is a cylinder. The outer surface of the cylinder uses one or more layers, or several sections of screens to increase the screening specifications. The volume of the trommel screen is generally large, mainly including motors, reducers, drum devices, screens, and machines. It is composed of a frame, a sealing cover, and an inlet and an outlet. A steel ring must be added to the drum device to prevent the trommel screen from deforming.

The roller device is installed on the frame obliquely. The motor is connected with the roller device through a coupling through a reducer, and drives the roller device to rotate around its axis. When the material enters the drum device, due to the tilt and rotation of the drum device, the material on the screen surface is turned and rolled. The qualified materials (products under the screen) are discharged through the outlet at the bottom of the rear end of the drum, and the unqualified materials (on the screen) The product is discharged through the discharge port at the end of the drum.

Using the vibration motor as the vibration source, the material is thrown up on the screen while moving forward in a straight line. The material enters the inlet of the screening machine evenly from the feeder, and produces several kinds of screens through the multi-layer screen. The upper and lower objects are discharged from their respective outlets.

The screen surface is fixed on the screen box, and the screen box is suspended or supported by springs. The bearing of the main shaft is installed on the screen box and is driven by the pulley to rotate at high speed. The eccentric counterweight plate is installed on the main shaft and generates centrifugal inertia force with the rotation of the main shaft, so that the screen box forms an approximate circular orbit vibration.

The trommel screen can be divided into single-layer, double-layer and three-layer vibrating screens according to the number of layers of the screen. This vibrating screen is also similar, according to the number of screen surface layers can be divided into single-layer, double-layer, three-layer and four-layer vibrating screen.

The vibrating screen is a screening equipment with a vibrating motor as the vibration source, so the screening accuracy is high. The trommel is a high-output screening equipment, and the screening accuracy is not as high as the vibrating screen.

For the trommel screen, the material is turned over and rolled in the drum, so that the material stuck in the sieve hole can be ejected to prevent the sieve hole from being blocked. For the circular vibrating screen, the material moves in a parabolic circular trajectory on the screen surface, so that the material is dispersed as much as possible to improve the materials bounce force, and the material stuck in the screen hole can also jump out, reducing the hole blocking phenomenon.

Vibrating screen and trommel screen have their own working methods and screening principles. Some raw materials can be screened through them. However, for different sites and different material requirements, suitable screening machines should be selected to achieve better screening results.
