Full circuit or single screening equipment machines can be built flat or on an incline. Each machine usually consists of an engine that creates the vibrations, screens that cause the particles to separate, and a catching area.
After assembly, material is fed into the machine, moved over the screens, and separated with vibration. The separation process may be short, producing the desired end-product after just one run. But some screening processes are longer or more complicated, separating the materials into smaller and smaller particles after each run or at different points in the machine.
There are two types of screens, totally dependent on the raw material. Wet screens utilize spray nozzles and water along with screen vibration in the sorting process, while dry screens use vibration only. Screening equipment needs to match the project to ensure it can stand up to the job and function in the right environment.
