Vibrating screens | Vibrating screening machines

S&F vibrating screening machines (vibrating screens) are used in production for protective screening, monitoring screening, or grading screening of free-flowing, dry and granular bulk materials. With its compact construction, we have achieved a long and low-maintenance service life. The “AVS” series vibrating screens are available with screening areas of 0.3 to 4.0 m².

Areas of application

S&F vibrating screens are sieve screens which are used for control screening, for protective screening, for dust sifting, as well as for classifying grainy, dry bulk materials in the wood processing industry (pelletizing), the recycling industry, the chemical industry (fertilizer industry, plastics industry, automobile industry), in foundries, animal feed industry, glass industry, ceramic industry, mining, construction materials industry (non-metallic minerals industry, cement industry, concrete industry), as well as in other similar types of industries.

Function description of the vibrating screen

The material is fed evenly into the feed hopper of the screening machine 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. Thanks to the two vibrating motors/unbalanced motors installed, a linear vibration is generated which ensures synchronised operation, and the material is fed continuously to the screening area. This ensures that the bulk material is conveyed consistently.

The loaded material is constantly in motion and flows in the direction of the discharge area. 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 the S&F vibrating screening machines
