High-capacity screener for use in fertilizer applications

April 27, 2009
Dry separation screeners provide superior screening performance in process, polishing, and load-out applications. High capacity and durability increase uptime and yield, while an ergonomic deck design makes maintenance easy. One and two deck models offer capacities up to 150 tons per hour. APEX Screeners are the high-efficiency solution when product specs are tight. A long stroke and slow-speed motion rapidly stratifies particles without remixing, while an aggressive ball mesh cleaning system maintains high rates. Gyratory motion at the feed end quickly spreads the product, and an elliptical-linear stroke at the discharge end separates near-size material. Nearly horizontal decks reduce product loss, so overall yield can exceed 90 percent.
