Screener reduces plug blinding and improves efficiency

This newly introduced Electro-mechanical Ball Tray Deck Screener (EMBS) provides a high-efficiency screening design for plastics and other applications where precise end particle size is paramount. The EMBS achieves a high degree of practicality via its ball tray deck – the physical area beneath the surface of its wire cloth screen that contains balls in specialized compartments. According to Jack Steinbuch, General Sales Manager for Cleveland Vibrator Co. the linear vibratory design of the EMBS actuates vigorous ball bouncing movements within their ball deck compartments and against the underside of the screen section. As the balls randomly strike the bottom of the screen, they knock out angular pieces that have wedged into screen openings. This action ultimately keeps openings clear for more efficient screening, thereby eliminating the potential plug blinding that can occur when material such as plastic regrind gets caught in screen openings.
