Mechanical Separation: An Overview Of Vibratory Screeners

If your experiment requires mechanical separation of different substrates and solutions, vibratory screeners are the perfect investment. They will make your life a lot easier and will speed up the experiment. Vibratory screeners rely on multi-plane inertial vibrations to separate particles based on their weight and size. Most screeners have a diameter range from 460 mm to 2540 mm and can separate particles into one of five predetermined sizes — anything as small as 37 microns to anything as large as 50 mm. This article will explore the various applications of vibratory screeners and the benefits they can offer.

Common Applications of Vibratory Screeners

Surprisingly, vibratory screeners are actually quite useful in a number of different laboratories and can be used in numerous situations. At times,

  • separating materials for recovery or for removal. If you have various aggregates needing to be separated for purification, vibratory screeners can effectively separate and screen the various particles based on their size and weight. 
  • sizing and classifying different chemicals and aggregates. Similarly, if you are unsure of what type of chemicals or aggregates are present in a solution or a mixture, vibratory screeners do a good job of separating them for better classification. Most vibratory screeners are quite precise and will be able to separate particles based on the smallest difference.
  • dewatering materials and chemicals are used.
  • sifting through particles, especially if you are attempting to recover solid particles in a solution.
  • de-lumping dry bulk solids.

Vibratory screeners can be utilized in various applications due to their precision and accuracy. They are also an effective method of separating aggregates and chemicals with very little hassle. Depending on the vibration frequency, the separation process can take mere minutes, which will help speed up your experimental procedures significantly.

Advantages of Using Vibratory Screeners

Most laboratories have minimal funding, which is why it is important to put a lot of thought into the type of equipment and machinery that is well worth the investment. If you have been eying several equipment and machinery to add to your laboratory, you should make getting vibratory screeners a priority based on the numerous advantages they can offer. Some of these advantages include:

  • a vibration ability to handle a large quantity of aggregates, chemicals and solutions at a time. This can help reduce your workload and the workload of your staff, so labor costs go towards more challenging work.
  • amazing flexibility in overall design. If you have minimal amount of space available in your laboratory, you won't have to worry that the vibratory screeners will take up too much space and clutter up the place. Vibratory screeners come in various sizes and designs to seamlessly fit into your laboratory.
  • an optimized production output. Vibration screeners can be put to work 24 hours a day, and 7 days a week. This means you can simply place the materials you need separated into the equipment at the end of the day and be sure that the separation process will be finished by the time that you arrive to the laboratory the next day. 
  • versatility in performance. Unlike some other equipment that can only handle specific chemicals and materials, vibratory screeners are quite durable and versatile. They can handle just about anything. Some of these screeners also come with additional accessories that will prevent contamination. 


Vibratory screeners are absolutely essential for a functional laboratory. They come in a wide range of sizes and designs, and are capable of handling various workloads. They are definitely a worthwhile investment that will increase productivity within your workload and make your experiment a lot easier to complete.
