KEFID Vibrating screens work on circular motion. The vibrating screens are mainly used in coal dressing, metallurgy, mine, power station, water conservancy project, building industry, light industry and chemical industry etc.
They are efficient screening machines for the classification of bulk material such as coal, minerals, coke etc There are 40 specifications for YK Series, of which the heavy duty type is for the classification of large size materials, while the Light duty type is for the middle and small size materials. Vibrating Screen moves round .It has multi-layers and is of high efficiency. The eccentric shaft vibration exciter and partial block help to adjust amplitude. The material drops down along the long line.
Illustration of how the circular vibrating screen works?
In screen grading, the material is separated mechanically on screen plates. Rolling bearings in vibrating screens are stressed by high, mostly shock-type loads. Moreover, the bearings, while rotating about their own axis, perform a circular, elliptical or linear vibrating motion. This results in high radial accelerations which additionally stress the bearings, and especially the cages, considerably.
The operating speeds are usually very high. As a result, the bearing temperatures are up to 20 to 30 degrees Kelvin higher than in normal applications. In addition, considerable misalignments between the bearing locations and considerable shaft deflections have to be accommodated.
