Compact Screening Plant: What It Is And Why It Is Essential

Posted on

A compact screening plant is a piece of equipment often used in mines and queries to separate granular ore materials according to their sizes. Its other functions include ore extraction, dewatering, scalping, and washing the mineral. Besides mining and mineral processing, this equipment's application extends to the agricultural, pharmaceutical, food, plastic, and recycling industries. A screening plant has an inbuilt drive that causes vibration and a screening media where particle separation occurs. Factors that often affect the screening process include vibration, the force of gravity, and the material's shape. 

Types of compact screening plants  

These pieces of equipment are available in numerous categories. Below is an overview of them. 

Circular vibrating screen plants

They have a tube-shaped vibrating screen, and their bodies move in circles during the screening process. These screens are often used in the bulk separation of materials of medium to coarse texture. Their robust structure makes them perfect for long-term projects. Circular screen plants are often used in iron and steel works, foundry, mining, sand, and gravel industries. 

Horizontal screen plants

They vibrate, moving backward and forward, facilitating the screening process, i.e., Separating large and small ore particles. Horizontal screen plants often have dual or triple shafts and two vibrating motors that rotate in opposite directions. They are excellent for wet washing. 

Rotary screen plants 

They contain a slot- tube with a filtration mechanism that allows liquids to flow through and retains the solid residue. Their primary application is separating solid waste from water in treatment plants. You can equip them with various sieves or filters e.g., wedge wire screens, fabrics, or perforated metal plates, making them versatile. 

Inclined screen plants 

They often consist of a single deck of screens suspended on sloping frames, which are mounted on springs. These plants utilize gravity to facilitate the downward movement of materials and a circular stroke that enables further sizing material classification. Unbalanced flywheels are the primary generators of their vibrations. Applications of inclined screen plants include ore processing, wet screening, recycling, and crushing rocks, sand, and gravel. 

Advantages of compact screening plants 

Their compact structure enhances their ease of transportation. These plants' mobility makes them convenient for projects requiring frequent location changes. They are easy to install and occupy less space, enhancing the efficiency of people working on projects with limited space. Compact screening plants have high performance and require low maintenance. You don't require a legal permit to install or operate compact screening plants on your project site. 


Compact screening plants are available in numerous categories, making them convenient and reliable for various projects. Their high performance and low maintenance increase your production and lower your expenditure. Contact an expert to learn more about them and acquire the one that best suits your needs.
