Vibratory Screen to remove Longs, Fines, Ferrous Metals from Pellets

A vibratory screen with two decks was built for a manufacturer of high density colorants used for plastic injection molding.  They required the vibratory screen to remove longs and fines from the pellet product flow. A second concern was to ensure that no ferrous particles like metal nuts, washers, bolts, or other foreign items got into the finished product that would damage their customer’s expensive plastic injection molding machines.

A two-deck 23″ x 43″, twin motor vibratory screen was installed. The main feature is the smooth, 1800 RPM non-upending action that prevents oversize longs from turning vertically and passing into the good product deck below. To ensure no product contamination, the entire body is manufactured from 304 Stainless and is fitted with magnetic separator to retain all ferrous particulates.

A quick removal front pivot chute and hand knobs provide quick screen size changes and easy cleaning for color changeover.
