Flexible, reliable slime separation at reduced cost - Desliming Screen

In mining, sometimes the size difference between valuable particles and unusable waste materials is miniscule. Finding an effective method for removing the slime and muck from raw feed material is a must, and can make a big difference to your overall revenue.

Unfortunately, desliming is a high-wear process, and the screens used to filter and separate are continuously subjected to extremely harsh conditions. That means maintenance, repair and costly downtime — or at least it used to. FLSmidth Desliming Screens are changing all of that.


You want a flexible, easy-to-use desliming solution that is capable of keeping up with the extreme demands of your industry. Our Desliming Screen options are designed to be flexible enough to fit nearly any desliming application, while also being durable enough to withstand extreme wear and tear with minimal maintenance. Add to that improved throughput and productivity, and you have a solution that cuts costs while increasing overall revenue.    


Usable in most applications, these screens come in a wide range of sizes, from 0.9m to 4.8m wide and up to 11.0m long. Desliming Screens are available in horizontal, multi-slope and inclined versions coupled with single-, double- and triple-deck configurations.
