The patented, high-volume Derrick® Stack Sizer® provides a much better economic alternative to Hydrocyclone separators, hydraulic classifiers and less efficient low volume fine screening systems.
Over 300 of the Stack Sizer units have been sold throughout the world for Fine Screening and Dewatering applications that require high tonnage mineral processing.

Derrick® Stack Sizer® Features:
- High separation efficiency achieved over an extremely small footprint
- Available in 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 deck configurations depending on capacity requirements
- Suitable for separations in the range of 6.3mm down to 38 microns
- Non-blinding, high-wear, urethane screen surface that typically lasts 20 to 30 times longer than stainless steel screens and will not blind with nearsize particles
- Available with re-pulping system to further improve fines removal and to provide an even cleaner oversize
- Large space provided between screen decks for screen surface access
Case Study 1: Processing Mineral Sands with Multiple Stack Sizers
- a single machine processing mineral sands
- 500 micron separation
- handles feed rates of 300 tons per hour
- achieves separation efficiencies of 90-95%
Case Study 2: Stack Sizers in an Iron Ore Processing Plant
- 75 micron separation
- handles feed rates of 130 tons per hour per unit
- with a separation efficiency in excess of 85%
How does the Stack Sizer Work?
- A single feed is introduced to the screen at 5 separate feed points.
- 2 vibrating motors apply a high frequency vibrating motion to all 5 screen decks uniformly creating a linear vibrating motion.
The linear motion also helps to convey the screened oversized material out of the way of oncoming feed slurry so more open screen area is available for oncoming feed.
- Each of the screen decks provides an undersize collection pan. The undersize from each of these pans moves to a single collection hopper below. Oversize material is transported to a single oversize collection hopper.
- Optional re-pulping system available
