Waterfall Disc Screen

September 30, 2013

The WSM Waterfall disc screen delivers high-capacity “fines” screening and improves screening efficiency due to increased material agitation. The Waterfall disc screen’s design utilizes multiple roll screening decks that agitate and tumble the mat of material being screened as it falls from level to level. This tumbling movement is similar to a waterfall in that the mat is blended as it falls and fine particles that were in the upper portion now have a chance to be screened on the lower deck. As a result, high-volume screening capacity and effective product separation are achieved in a small package size. To make this possible the Waterfall disc screen utilizes a tight spacing between discs, allowing a variety of fiber materials to be sorted by size (thickness and length). Fine particles pass between the discs, while over-size pieces are retained above.
