What is aggregate screening?
The screening process is arguably the most important process in aggregate production.
Screens are used throughout the aggregate, mining and recycling industries to classify and sort rock, stone, sand, construction rubble and other materials by size.
Crushers break rock and produce the gradation. But it’s the screens function to separate, size and sort the crushed material so it can be used in construction materials like road base, concrete and asphalt products.
The crusher produces the gradation, but the screen produces the specification. Until the crushed material is successfully screened, no money is made.
Are you looking for a fast, reliable way to screen rock, stone, sand, gravel and crushed concrete?
Look no further – our mobile track mounted screening equipment is the perfect solution.
With nearly forty years of crushing and screening experience, we can confidently say that it’s the most efficient and effective option available.
Types of Screening Machines
While all screens are developed to sort and classify material by size, some are application-specific and designed to perform a specific range of duties like scalping, washing, and dewatering. The type of screen required depends on the application and material required.
