screening machines

The Apex screening machine combines Gyratory Reciprocating Motion with an ergonomic design which increases productivity while reducing overall downtime. Both maintenance and inspection of the Apex machine can be conducted by a single operator, allowing for less downtime. All screens of the Apex can be inspected in less than 10 minutes and screens can be changed in 80% less time. Operator lifted components weigh no more than 18.5kgs with an individual screen panel weighing 2.25kgs.

Accurate Screening Solutions How it Works

Gyratory Motion Diagram
Gyratory motion rapidly distributes, stratifies, and separates The unique gyratory-reciprocating motion begins with a horizontal circular motion at the feed end that immediately spreads the material across the full width of the screen.

1. Circular motion at feed end The circular motion gradually diminishes along the length of the machine to an elliptical path, and finally to an approximate straight-line motion at the discharge end.

2. Changing to elliptical motion at center This motion allows the machine to process material at a higher capacity and improves screening performance for near-size material.

3. Straight-line motion at discharge end There is no vertical component to this motion – thus keeping the material in constant contact with the screen surface

Apex Screener Installation Installation

Floor Mounting Because the Apex counterbalanced drive has low transmitted forces, the Apex can be floor mounted in properly designed structures, a design feature unique to this type of equipment. The Apex can be mounted directly on the floor or on an elevated structural steel framework, which allows for drums and other equipment to be located under the machine. Apex application engineers are available to recommend a stand for any specific application.

Cable Suspension Apex Screeners can be cable-suspended from the four corners of the machine, thereby isolating out-of-balance screening forces from the surrounding structure. Accurate counterbalancing of the Apex Screener makes this type of installation option possible. If the existing overhead structure is not suitable or structurally unable to support the cable-suspended unit, the Aprx Screener can be suspended from a floor-mounted cable support stand. As with conventional cable suspension, this option effectively isolates the horizontal out-of-balance screening forces, which minimizes costs for new structures and permits the use of older structures that might not otherwise support cable-suspended equipment.
