Trash Screen - Flexible, reliable debris separation at reduced cost

When it comes to your raw feed materials, only a small fraction of the overall slurry is worth extracting. The rest is a mixture of trash and debris that you need to be able to separate out before you can get your end product. However, that process — separating and removing the trash from the treasure — is extremely high wear, and the toll it takes on equipment can lead to costly and frequent maintenance, repairs and downtime. That said, with the right solution you can enjoy effective trash separation without the hassle. All it takes is a reliable Trash Screen.

Our Trash Screen options are built from the ground up to be able to withstand continuous operation under the harshest conditions, significantly cutting back on costs associated with maintenance and repairs. At the same time, these screens are designed to be easy to install, and are flexible enough to meet the needs of almost any application. And, because throughput and productivity are at least as important as durability, these Trash Screens are also built for increased feed rates, improving overall plant output (and revenue) in the process. 


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.
