:: Effective Multi-Layer Material Screening  

Filtration and separation specialist Russell Finex Ltd, UK, has introduced a range of vibratory separators that can efficiently separate material into a maximum of five predetermined fractions in a single operation.

The Finex Separator can be used for both wet and dry applications and uses up to four screen surfaces stacked one on top of the other. According to the company, the design of the separator makes it possible to achieve a consistent material flow over all four decks, providing accurate separation in every layer. Rubber suspension mounts make operation quieter than a separator mounted on springs, plus rubber feet further reduce noise to a level significantly lower than separators with metal plates directly in contact with the floor.

The vibrator assembly translates torque, produced by standard, off the shelf motor, into the out of balance forces required to run the machine. Translation of power from the housing onto the screening area is said to be more effective than other separator systems, resulting in an increased screening capacity. The vibrator housing has been specifically designed around a high-mass, machined casting to enhance operational effectiveness, and an adjustable weighting system creates a rigorous action to raise the screening and separation efficiency.

By using a standard motor rather than a more expensive vibratory model the company says, when necessary, the motor can be replaced quickly, easily and at minimal cost. Furthermore, the modular design of the Finex Separator means it fits easily into any production line. Conventional mechanical screen cleaning devices, as well as its Vibrason mesh deblinding system can be fitted on the separator.

Performance trials have shown that the Finex Separator achieves at least twice the capacity of standard separator designs, with most material types.
