What Are Inclined Screens?

Inclined screens are a type of vibrating screen.  They use vibration to help move aggregate materials across a screen for separation.  Inclined screens are often used in mining and other industrial applications to separate large and small particles or to remove unwanted materials from a mixture.

The capabilities of inclined screens include:

  • The ability to quickly and easily remove undesired particles and create a specific type of aggregate mixture
  • They are capable of removing unwanted materials from a mixture, ultimately improving the quality of the final product.
  • They are able to withstand heavy use.

Inclined screens are relatively easy to operate and maintain.  They also come in a variety of sizes and can be customized to suit any project’s specific needs.

How Incline Screens Work?

To stratify the material, an inclined screen uses circular vibration.  The travel speed of the material over the deck is provided by the combination of vibration and angle.  Inclined screens are used for the grading of materials such as coal, ore, and sand.  Although the slop of the inclined screen is fixed, the stroke can be adjusted to the required level.  Generally, the working stroke of an inclined screen is between 8 and 12mm.  The design of these screens permits changes to their stroke through the addition or removal of additional eccentric masses on the exciter.

Generally designed with multi deck arrangements, inclined screens allow material to be classified into 2-5 grade types.  These screens are fitted with an impact area directly before the screening section begins.  The impact area breaks up the material and causes any long pieces to lie flat during screening.

What Are The Benefits Of Inclined Screens?

By vibrating at a high frequency, inclined screens move materials up the screen and into the separation process.  As materials move down the belt, they are separated based on their size and consistency.  To help improve overall efficiency of the aggregate process, inclined screens are used in conjunction with other aggregate equipment.  They are often used alongside crushers and feeders.

Inclined screens offer several benefits, including:

  • Increased production: Inclined screens are able to screen and sort materials more quickly and efficiently than traditional methods. This aids in increasing production.
  • Improved quality: Inclined screens separate smaller pieces of material from larger pieces and produce a higher-quality aggregate product. The product produced by inclined screens is more uniform and consistent in size and shape.
  • Reduced wear and tear: Inclined screens vibrate at a high frequency. This causes less wear and tear on the screen itself than traditional screening methods.  Inclined screens help to extend the life of the screen and reduce maintenance costs.
