We Deal with the toughest SISCO vibrating Feeder& Screens with unbalance drives are economical dependent & pollution free conveying equipment for all bulk material. They are used for a wide range of material such as Granite, Iron Ore, Limestone, Dolomite, coal, Copper & Zinc Ore, Coke, Bauxite etc.
Each feeder and screens are driven by two nos. heavy duty counter rotating unbalance motors which are firmly fitted to the feeder or screen trough. They operate with linear oscillations. The amplitude can be altered, when the machine is not in operation, by displacement or by removing/adding counter weights.
When the smaller rock has to be classified a vibrating screen will be used.The simplest Vibrating Screen Working Principle can be explained using the single deck screen and put it onto an inclined frame. The frame is mounted on springs. The vibration is generated from an unbalanced flywheel. A very erratic motion is developed when this wheel is rotated. You will find these simple screens in smaller operations and rock quarries where sizing isnt as critical. As the performance of this type of screen isnt good enough to meet the requirements of most mining operations two variations of this screen have been developed.
In the majority of cases, the types of screen decks that you will be operating will be either the horizontal screen or the inclined vibrating screen. The names of these screens do not reflect the angle that the screens are on, they reflect the direction of the motion that is creating the vibration.
An eccentric shaft is used in the inclined vibrating screen. There is an advantage of using this method of vibration generation over the unbalanced flywheel method first mentioned. The vibration of an unbalanced flywheel is very violent. This causes mechanical failure and structural damage to occur. The four-bearing system greatly reduces this problem. Why these screens are vibrated is to ensure that the ore comes into contact will the screen. By vibrating the screen the rock will be bounced around on top of it. This means, that by the time that the rock has traveled the length of the screen, it will have had the opportunity of hitting the screen mesh at just the right angle to be able to penetrate through it. If the rock is small enough it will be removed from the circuit. The large rock will, of course, be taken to the next stage in the process. Depending upon the tonnage and the size of the feed, there may be two sets of screens for each machine.
The reason for using two decks is to increase the surface area that the ore has to come into contact with. The top deck will have bigger holes in the grid of the screen. The size of the ore that it will be removed will be larger than that on the bottom. Only the small rock that is able to pass through the bottom screen will be removed from the circuit. In most cases the large rock that was on top of each screen will be mixed back together again.
The main cause of mechanical failure in screen decks is vibration. Even the frame, body, and bearings are affected by this. The larger the screen the bigger the effect. The vibration will crystallize the molecular structure of the metal causing what is known as METAL FATIGUE to develop. The first sign that an operator has indicated that the fatigue in the body of the screen deck is almost at a critical stage in its development are the hairline cracks that will appear around the vibrations point of origin. The bearings on the bigger screens have to be watched closer than most as they tend to fail suddenly. This is due to the vibration as well.
In plant design, it is usual to install a screen ahead of the secondary crusher to bypass any ore which has already been crushed small enough, and so to relieve it of unnecessary work. Very close screening is not required and some sort of moving bar or ring grizzly can well be used, but the modern method is to employ for the purpose a heavy-duty vibrating screen of the Hummer type which has no external moving parts to wear out ; the vibrator is totally enclosed and the only part subjected to wear is the surface of the screen.
The Hummer Screen, illustrated in Fig. 6, is the machine usually employed for the work, being designed for heavy and rough duty. It consists of a fixed frame, set on the slope, across which is tightly stretched a woven-wire screen composed of large diameter wires, or rods, of a special, hard-wearing alloy. A metal strip, bent over to the required angle, is fitted along the length of each side of the screen so that it can be secured to the frame at the correct tension by means of spring-loaded hook bolts. A vibrating mechanism attached to the middle of the screen imparts rapid vibrations of small amplitude to its surface, making the ore, which enters at the top, pass down it in an even mobile stream. The spring-loaded bolts, which can be seen in section in Fig. 7, movewith a hinge action, allowing unrestricted movement of the entire screening surface without transmitting the vibrations to the frame.
One, two, or three vibrators, depending on the length of the screen, are mounted across the frame and are connected through their armatures with a steel strip securely fixed down the middle of the screen. The powerful Type 50 Vibrator, used for heavy work, is shown in Fig. 7. The movement of the armature is directly controlled by the solenoid coil, which is connected by an external cable with a supply of 15-cycle single-phase alternating current ; this produces the alternating field in the coil that causes the up-and-down movement of the armature at the rate of thirty vibrations per second. At the end of every return stroke it hits a striking block and imparts to the screen a jerk which throws the larger pieces of ore to the top of the bed and gives the fine particles a better chance of passing through the meshes during the rest of the cycle. The motion can be regulated by spiral springs controlled by a handwheel, thus enabling the intensity of the vibrations to be adjusted within close limits. No lubrication is required either for the vibrating mechanism or for any other part of the screen, and the 15-cycle alternating current is usually supplied by a special motor-generator set placed somewhere where dust cannot reach it.
The Type 70 Screen is usually made 4 ft. wide and from 5 to 10 ft. in length. For the rough work described above it can be relied upon to give a capacity of 4 to 5 tons per square foot when screening to about in. and set at a slope of 25 to 30 degrees to the horizontal. The Type 50 Vibrator requires about 2 h.p. for its operation.
The determination of screen capacity is a very complex subject. There is a lot of theory on the subject that has been developed over many years of the manufacture of screens and much study of the results of their use. However, it is still necessary to test the results of a new installation to be reasonably certain of the screen capacity.
A general rule of thumb for good screening is that: The bed depth of material at the discharge end of a screen should never be over four times the size opening in the screen surface for material weighing 100 pounds per cubic foot or three times for material weighing 50 pounds per cubic foot. The feed end depth can be greater, particularly if the feed contains a large percentage of fines. Other interrelated factors are:
Vibration is produced on inclined screens by circular motion in a plane perpendicular to the screen with one-eighth to -in. amplitude at 700-1000 cycles per minute. The vibration lifts the material producing stratification. And with the screen on an incline, the material will cascade down the slope, introducing the probability that the particles will either pass through the screen openings or over their surface.
Screen capacity is dependent on the type, available area, and cleanliness of the screen and screenability of the aggregate. Belowis a general guide for determining screen capacity. The values may be used for dried aggregate where blinding (plugged screen openings), moisture build-up or other screening problems will not be encountered. In this table it is assumed that approximately 25% of the screen load is retained, for example, if the capacity of a screen is 100 tons/hr (tph) the approximate load on the screen would be 133 tph.
It is possible to not have enough material on a screen for it to be effective. For very small feed rates, the efficiency of a screen increases with increasing tonnage on the screen. The bed of oversize material on top of the marginal particlesstratification prevents them from bouncing around excessively, increases their number of attempts to get through the screen, and helps push them through. However, beyond an optimum point increasing tonnage on the screen causes a rather rapid decrease in the efficiency of the screen to serve its purpose.
Two common methods for calculating screen efficiency depend on whether the desired product is overs or throughs from the screen deck. If the oversize is considered to be the product, the screen operation should remove as much as possible of the undersize material. In that case, screen performance is based on the efficiency of undersize removal. When the throughs are considered to be the product, the operation should recover as much of the undersize material as possible. In that case, screen performance is based on the efficiency of undersize recovery.
These efficiency determinations necessitate taking a sample of the feed to the screen deck and one of the material that passes over the deck, that is, does not pass through it. These samples are subjected to sieve analysis tests to find the gradation of the materials. The results of these tests lead to the efficiencies. The equations for the screen efficiencies are as follows:
In both cases the amount of undersize material, which is included in the material that goes over the screen is relatively small. In Case 1 the undersize going over the screen is 19 10 = 9 tph, whereas in Case 2 the undersize going over is 55 50 = 5 tph. That would suggest that the efficiency of the screen in removing undersize material is nearly the same. However, it is the proportion of undersize material that is in the material going over the screen, that is, not passed through the screen, that determines the efficiency of the screen.
In the first cases the product is the oversize material fed to the screen and passed over it. And screen efficiency is based on how well the undersize material is removed from the overs. In other cases the undersize material fed to the screen, that is, the throughs, is considered the product. And the efficiency is dependent on how much of the undersize material is recovered in the throughs. This screen efficiency is determined by the Equation B above.An example using the case 1 situation for the throughs as the product gives a new case to consider for screen efficiency.
Generally, manufacturers of screening units of one, two, or three decks specify the many dimensions that may be of concern to the user, including the total headroom required for screen angles of 10-25 from the horizontal. Very few manufacturers show in their screen specifications the capacity to expect in tph per square foot of screen area. If they do indicate capacities for different screen openings, the bases are that the feed be granular free-flowing material with a unit weight of 100 lb/cu ft. Also the screen cloth will have 50% or more open area, 25% of total feed passing over the deck, 40% is half size, and screen efficiency is 90%. And all of those stipulations are for a one-deck unit with the deck at an 18 to 20 slope.
As was discussed with screen efficiencies, there will be some overs on the first passes that will contain undersize material but will not go through the screen. This material will continue recirculating until it passes through the screen. This is called the circulating load. By definition, circulating load equals the total feed to the crusher system with screens minus the new feed to the crusher. It is stated as a percentage of the new feed to the crusher. The equation for circulating load percentage is:
To help understand this determination and the equation use, take the example of 200 tph original or new material to the crusher. Assume 100% screen efficiency and 30% oversize in the crusher input. For the successive cycles of the circulating load:
The values for the circulating load percentages can be tabulated for various typical screen efficiencies and percents of oversize in the crusher product from one to 99%. This will expedite the determination for the circulating load in a closed Circuit crusher and screening system.
Among the key factors that have to be taken into account in determining the screen area required is the deck correction. A top deck should have a capacity as determined by trial and testing of the product output, but the capacity of each succeeding lower deck will be reduced by 10% because of the lower amount of oversize for stratification on the following decks. For example, the third deck would be 80% as effective as the top deck. Wash water or spray will increase the effectiveness of the screens with openings of less than 1 in. in size. In fact, a deck with water spray on 3/16 in. openings will be more than three times as effective as the same size without the water spray.
For efficient wet or dry screeningHi-capacity, 2-bearing design. Flywheel weights counterbalance eccentric shaft giving a true-circle motion to screen. Spring suspensions carry the weight. Bearings support only weight of shaft. Screen is free to float and follow positive screening motion without power-consuming friction losses. Saves up to 50% HP over4- bearing types. Sizes 1 x 2 to 6 x 14, single or double deck types, suspended or floor mounted units.Also Revolving (Trommel) Screens. For sizing, desliming or scrubbing. Sizes from 30 x 60 to 120.
TheVibrating Screen has rapidly come to the front as a leader in the sizing and dewatering of mining and industrial products. Its almost unlimited uses vary from the screening for size of crusher products to the accurate sizing of medicinal pellets. The Vibrating Screen is also used for wet sizing by operating the screen on an uphill slope, the lower end being under the surface of the liquid.
The main feature of the Vibrating Screen is the patented mechanism. In operation, the screen shaft rotates on two eccentrically mounted bearings, and this eccentric motion is transmitted into the screen body, causing a true circular throw motion, the radius of which is equivalent to the radius of eccentricity on the eccentric portion of the shaft. The simplicity of this construction allows the screen to be manufactured with a light weight but sturdy mechanism which is low in initial cost, low in maintenance and power costs, and yet has a high, positive capacity.
The Vibrating Screen is available in single and multiple deck units for floor mounting or suspension. The side panels are equipped with flanges containing precision punched bolt holes so that an additional deck may be added in the future by merely bolting the new deck either on the top or the bottom of the original deck. The advantage of this feature is that added capacity is gained without purchasing a separate mechanism, since the mechanisms originally furnished are designed for this feature. A positivemethod of maintaining proper screen tension is employed, the method depending on the wire diameter involved. Screen cloths are mounted on rubber covered camber bars, slightly arched for even distribution.
Standard screens are furnished with suspension rod or cable assemblies, or floor mounting brackets. Initial covering of standard steel screen cloth is included for separations down to 20 mesh. Suspension frame, fine mesh wire, and dust enclosure are furnished at a slight additional cost. Motor driven units include totally-enclosed, ball-bearing motors. The Vibrating Screen can be driven from either side. The driven sheave is included on units furnished without the drive.
The following table shows the many sizes available. Standard screens listed below are available in single and double deck units. The triple and quadruple deck units consist of double deck units with an additional deck or decks flanged to the original deck. Please consult our experienced staff of screening engineers for additional information and recommendations on your screening problems.
An extremely simple, positive method of imparting uniform vibration to the screen body. Using only two bearings and with no dead weight supported by them, the shaft is in effect floating on the two heavy-duty bearings.
The unit consists of the freely suspended screen body and a shaft assembly carried by the screen body. Near each end of the shaft, an eccentric portion is turned. The shaft is counterbalanced, by weighted fly-wheels, against the weight of the screen and loads that may be superimposed on it. When the shaft rotates, eccentric motion is transmitted from the eccentric portions, through the two bearings, to the screen frame.
The patented design of Dillon Vibrating Screens requires just two bearings instead of the four used in ordinary mechanical screens, resulting in simplicity of construction which cuts power cost in half for any screening job; reduces operating and maintenance costs.
With this simplified, lighter weight construction all power is put to useful work thus, the screen can operate at higher speeds when desired, giving greater screening capacity at lower power cost. The sting of the positive, high speed vibration eliminates blinding of screen openings.
The sketches below demonstrate the four standard methods of fastening a screen cloth to the Dillon Screen. The choice of method is generally dependent on screen wire diameters. It is recommended that the following guide be followed:
Before Separation can take place we need to get the fine particles to the bottom of the pile next to the screen deck openings and the coarse particles to the top. Without this phenomenon, we would have all the big particles blocking the openings with the fines resting atop of them and never going through.
We need to state that 100% efficiency, that is, putting every undersize particle through and every oversize particle over, is impossible. If you put 95% of the undersize pieces through we in the screen business call that commercially perfect.
The quarry vibrating screen is mainly used to screen gravel, and the quality of the screen mesh determines the material screening efficiency. Therefore, quarry investors or equipment purchasers will ask the manufacturer for information about vibrating screen media types when choosing a vibrating screen.
Rayco designs and manufactures a complete set of high quality and cost-effective rubber screens. They are used to treat the roughest and most abrasive products, such as gravel, coal, slag, etc. Rubber material is soft and powerful, can absorb shock and have long service life, which not only can reduce the downtime, but also makes installation easier and faster. If noise reduction is required, rubber screens are good choices.
Rayco rubber sieve can be divided into two kinds: tension and modular. The tension type can be installed as a circular vibrating screen and replace the original metal screen or polyurethane screen. The modular type can be installed in many ways, which can better save operating costs.
The polyurethane screen is made of polyurethane and embedded in a steel frame. It has a specially designed fastening hook to clamp the mesh to the separator. Polyurethane screen has excellent performance in mining crushing and aggregate screening industry. Different sizes and types of mesh hole ensure high screening efficiency and smooth surfaces. Polyurethane materials make mesh noise much lower than braided vibrating mesh or perforated mesh.
Our polyurethane screens can effectively screen materials for many industrial applications, such as dehydration, mining, sand, stone, gravel, etc. Polyurethane is ideal for high wear areas in both wet and dry processing applications.
THe high-strength woven wire screen is made of best steel wire like manganese steel wire, galvanized steel wire and stainless steel wire. The mesh hole can be square, rectangular, or longslotted. With a variety of woven types, it can be suitable for different screens and materials.
The perforated screen is made of a metal plate with high compressive strength after punching. Compared with woven vibrating screen, porous vibrating screen has a smooth surface, which can ensure higher screening and separation efficiency.

A WIRE RANGE OF PARTS FOR YOUR SCREEN BOX Vibrating screens need to vibrate in a linear motion, the screens need to be correctly tensioned and washing requires proper nozzles. We offer a wide range of accessories for vibrating screens to ensure proper and safe operation.
Screen panels require proper tension and bedding to perform at their best with minimum breakdowns. Cappings act as a bumper between the deck and screen mesh. It is very important to fix the screen mesh tight to the deck as a lose connection will destroy the screen in a short period of time.
Rubber buffers are an important part of a vibrating screen. Screen operation should be strictly linear in line with the material flow and side movements should be minimised. Especially during start/stop operations, side movements increase as the screen passes through amplitudes close to its natural frequency and it resonates. Side rubber buffers prevent the screen from moving sideways.
While a large number of engineers try to minimise the vibrations in different applications, vibrating screen manufacturers try to make the best of it. Proper vibrating patterns are not possible without flexible mounts. Springs are the most common type of vibrating screen suspension. They are durable and easy to install and service.
Washing is one of the most important stages in aggregate and mineral processing applications. Generally, washing is performed by spraying water under pressure on the top of the material flow. Washing nozzles are special attachments to the pipes that spread the water over a wide coverage area. This water washes off the clay and dirt.
Declogging rods have been developed to further improve the self-cleaning properties of anti-clogging screens. Declogging rods bounce on the PU strips and create additional shock that helps to shake off stubborn sticky material from the panels. Declogging rods can be connected in multiple parts to completely cover the screen area.

With the Nord N10 5G and N100, OnePlus expanded its more affordable Nord family of phones after launching its first OnePlus Nord in 2020. Available in Europe and North America, the N10 5G currently costs $300. This is cheaper than the UK-only OnePlus Nord (which you can currently find on Amazon for $428) along with the company's 2020 flagshipOnePlus 8($449) and 2021's flagshipOnePlus 9($729).
The Nord N10 5G does cut a few corners. For instance, it has an LCD display instead of OLED, lacks an in-screen fingerprint sensor, is powered by a slower processor than any 2020 OnePlus phone, isn't IP rated for water resistance and it runs the older Android 10 OS. But it still has some premium features such as 5G, a 90Hz display and a robust 4,300-mAh battery, as well as a few retro surprises that other OnePlus phones don't have, like expandable memory and a headphone jack.
OnePlus's pricing makes the Nord N10 5G one of the more affordable 5G phones, especially now. For comparison, Samsung's Galaxy A32 5G launched earlier in 2021 with a $280 price tag, and the Motorola One 5G is currently $350. Though I do think the Pixel 4A 5G and One 5G are worth the extra bit of money -- the $500 Pixel, for instance, will get the latest software support from Google, has an excellent camera and a long-lasting battery life) -- the N10 5G is a top choice if you're a fan of OnePlus and want 5G at an affordable price.
The N10 5G has a dark blue, glossy design that looks polished and slick. From afar it doesn't look like a "budget" phone. But when I first picked it up, I could tell it wasn't as high-end. It's heavier and thicker, and its bezels, especially the bottom chin bezel, is wider than all of the phones OnePlus released last year. It also doesn't have the convenient toggle switch for silence/vibrate that OnePlus phones are known for. Nonetheless, it's still a relatively attractive device, and its rounded edges on the side are comfortable to hold.
The N10 5G also has an LCD display, whereas OnePlus phones usually have AMOLED screens. When viewed side-by-side with the Nord, the AMOLED screen is a bit brighter and vibrant, with more contrast. I also noticed that when viewing the N10 5G from various angles, the color shifting was more noticeable. But these details are only discernible next to another phone. By itself, there is no real issue with the N10 5G's screen, and watching videos and photos looked sharp and clear. Its 90Hz refresh rate makes scrolling through feeds and apps feel zippy and smooth.
Lastly, unlike many of OnePlus' new phones, the N10 5G has two things that are familiar but have been missing from many premium devices: a headphone jack and a visible fingerprint sensor on the back of the phone that works quickly.
Similar to many OnePlus phones, the N10 5G has four rear cameras, and similar to those phones, it really only needs two. The standard and ultra-wide cameras are great and are the ones I used the most, but the monochrome camera is only useful when you want to take black and white photos, which I hardly do. And the 2-megapixel macro camera for closeup shots takes photos that look like, well, they were taken with a 2-megapixel camera. While it did allow me to focus in on an object and get super close to it, pictures ultimately looked washed out and muddy.
But again, the standard and ultrawide cameras are quite excellent. Photos were sharp with rich contrast, and the camera's HDR effect is vibrant. The standard camera defaults to 16-megapixel, but you can shoot at the full 64-megapixel resolution. The camera's 10x digital zoom is also decent, and was able to capture details of faraway objects despite being a tad blurrier.
The N10 5G's low-light mode, Nightscape, wasn't very impressive. While taking a photo of a black bookshelf in near darkness, I was able to see a few more details and book titles, but the picture remained relatively dark. When I compared the same scene on the OnePlus Nord, the One Plus 8T and the Pixel 5's Night Mode, all three phones brightened up the scene a lot more.
The phone is equipped with a Snapdragon 690 processor. Though on paper that's not as fast or as powerful as the OnePlus Nord, Motorola One 5G and the Pixel 4A 5G's Snapdragon 765 chipset, the N10 5G tracked closely with the phones when it came to benchmarks. I also didn't notice any speed issues or laggy behavior during my time with the phone.
The N10 5G has a beefy 4,300-mAh battery, which is the same capacity as the more expensive OnePlus 8. (The OnePlus 9 has a slightly beefier 4,500-mAh battery.) Anecdotally, the phone can easily last a day or two without a charge with mild usage. At the end of one particular night, the battery was only at 70% after I took the phone out during the day to take a bunch of photos and browse the internet. Battery tests for continuous video playback on Airplane mode averaged 16 hours and 27 minutes. For comparison, the OnePlus 8 lasted nearly 19 hours.
When OnePlus launched its 8T last October, it also updated the company's OxygenOS interface, refreshing menus and notifications so that they looked more streamlined, modern and clean. I was a fan of it, so it was disappointing not to see it on the N10 5G. This is likely because the phone runs the previous version of Android, Android 10, but even if the N10 5G doesn't run Android 11 out of the box, it's still possible for OnePlus to tweak some parts of the N10 5G's interface with the most recent OxygenOS look. But the N10 5G is expected to receive one OS update (from Android 10 to Android 11) and a total of two years of security updates according to OnePlus.
The N10 5G does still have useful software features, including a native screen recorder, Dark Mode and ZenMode, which is OnePlus' digital wellbeing app that limits phone functionality when you want to focus.
