Oscillating screens | Oscillating screening machines

The S&F oscillating screening machine (oscillating screen) type ASM was specially developed for separating and sorting bulk solid materials. Thanks to the wide, orbital and vibration-free horizontal oscillation, the greatest screening results can be achieved. Our many years of experience in the manufacturing of screening machines are reflected in the long-lifetime and low-maintenance of our products, which can also be attributed to the sturdy construction of the machines. The “ASM” series screening machines (also called: woodchip screens) are available with screen sizes from 0.5 to 24 square metres and particle size from 0.1 to 150 mm.

Areas of application

S&F oscillating screens (woodchip screens) are used in the timber industry and wood material industry (sawmills and sawmill industry, pelletizing and pelleting industry / pellet industry / pellet factories, briquetting, chip board industry, fibre board industry, paper and pulp industry, waste wood incineration plants, forestry, biomass power stations, by manufacturers of wood fuels and producers of wood chips), in the recycling industry (waste wood processing plants, waste wood operations, recycling operations, RDF plants or refuse derived fuel power plants), as well as in other areas of waste management and environmental technology, in the animal feed industry, the seasoning industry, the plastics industry, in brickworks and in many other areas.

Function description

The material is fed evenly into the feed hopper of the screening machine or gyratory screen with the aid of a dosing system, conveyor belt or the like. In the feed area, the material to be screened is spread out on its way to the screening area. Through the rapid and orbital oscillations, the loaded material is kept constantly in motion as it flows over the screen surface in the direction of the discharge area.

Oscillating screening machine

The orbital movement of the screen causes the material to distribute itself horizontally over the surface, so that it is almost impossible for long thin pieces to stand upright on the screen or drop through it. The material to be screened, which is smaller than the apertures in the screen elements, falls through. From there, it moves on to the next screening stage, if required. This procedure is repeated until the material has been completely screened. The screened material is then discharged through the corresponding discharge outlets.

Advantages of S&F oscillating and wood chip screens
  • High screening capacity since the entire surface area of the installed screen is put to use
  • Highly economical, as up to six fractions can be handled with low space requirement
  • Low noise level
  • Low maintenance and repair
  • Maintenance-free, long-lasting anti-vibration mountings
  • Rapid screen change
  • High reliability with low energy consumption
  • Compact construction
  • Highly flexible under changing conditions
  • Any fraction can be selected
  • A variety of fractions in a single work step
  • Also available as dust-proof model
  • Additional screen cleaning equipment available, for instance bouncing ball cleaning system
  • Can be integrated into existing plants
