Which kind of materials suits the application of trommel screen? Here are some tips, check this out.
A trommel screen is a rotary cylinder drum which works by gravity sieving. Usually, lightweight materials are not suitable for trommel screen as there are no external force acting in the screening process, therefore irregular-shape materials tend to plug onto screen mesh easily.
As drum screen is often used in the sand mining industries, the general mesh size is commonly above 5mm, whilst the fine mesh size is not less than 3mm. Usually, the smaller the fine wire mesh, the shorter the lifespan of it. Besides, it also affects the screening effiency.
It is recommended to use drum screen for materials such as chemical fertilizer and compost. The screening efficiency for ceramsite is also good and are useful for large-scale processing.
