Virto-Cuccolini’s X-Line multi-frequency technology optimizes the critical screening process in sectors with difficult working conditions, such as; aggregates, mineral beneficiation and waste reclamation.
The technology delivers unmatched screening efficiencies and throughput per m2. This smaller footprint allows for less space and structural support in the plant and leads to lower energy bills.
Overall reducing cost, reducing the impact on the environment and maximizing revenue.
Here we present one of our many successful case studies. In this case, the client is a Refractory Materials manufacturer, producing products such as refractory bricks and tiles.
A key process for the client is the screening of the raw material, wet natural sand, to remove organics and rocks before the production process. The wet natural sand includes clays, which absorb moisture and make keeping the screen from blinding more difficult.
Prior to working with Virto, the client’s experience had been to change the size of the screen opening depending on the season. In the dryer summer, they were able to screen the material at 5mm, whilst in the damp winters, they could only screen at 8mm.
Furthermore, the retention of undersize material in the oversize waste was high and good material was being lost.
Our client installed RS 2814.1 rectangular X-Line screen with a screen surface area of 3.6 sqm.
The compact dimensions of the X-Line screen (3.3 x 2.0 x 2.0) and light weight (3,500 kg) allowed the client to achieve a production rate of 30 t/h with a screening efficiency of 99% at a cut point of 4mm, whilst reducing the space required for this step in the plant. Savings were also made through a lighter support structure and lower energy consumption. The RS 2814.1 screen’s motors only require 4.05 Kw.
The X-Line multifrequency technology allows us to apply an extraordinary multifrequency force to the screen surface, making it the most effective anti-blinding technology on the market.
In addition, the energy fluidizes the bed of material, increasing the chances of below size particles to pass through the screen and reducing the amount of undersize being trapped in the oversize.
