Selecting the right screening media

Screen decks are at the heart of any screening operation, so it’s crucial that you choose the right design, material, thickness, hole shape, and hole size. In this part of the Sandvik Knowledge Hub, the key variables are outlined, and you can find out what to do if your screen isn’t delivering the results you need.

What types of screening media are out there?

Finding the right screening media for your operation involves balancing out a lot of objectives, constraints, and variables. The variety of options on the market should make it easier to find the ideal solution, but it can be difficult to understand exactly what’s available.

Selecting the right screening media for the job

There’s no such thing as one-size-fits-all when it comes to screening media. With so many factors that can impact on their effectiveness, you need to give careful consideration to your entire operation if you want to make the best choice.

Screening troubleshooting

Mechanical screening can never be 100% accurate, but even so, if you aren’t satisfied with your product there could be a straightforward explanation and a painless remedy.

Maintenance and replacement advice

Screening is a tough business, so for most operations replacing wear parts and screening media is a fairly frequent event. Sometimes it is self-evident when replacement parts are needed – for instance, if a wire mesh has a gaping hole in it – but at other times, the signs of wear are a bit subtler and harder to identify.
