Rotex Offers Gyratory Reciprocating Screeners
Gyratory Reciprocating Screeners from Rotex Global are designed to separate dry materials at high production rates. Features include a gyratory-reciprocating motion and positive screen mesh cleaning system. The gyratory-reciprocating motion of the near-horizontal screen surface gives undersize material the maximum opportunity to pass through the mesh openings without loss of near-size material. The motion also produces a continuous mesh cleaning action that prevents material from lodging in the openings. Screens can range from one to five screen surfaces for separation with openings of 1/2 inch to 325 mesh. Optional floor mounting, cable suspension and mounting on a structural steel framework are available. 800/453-2321; www.rotex.com.
