Causes And Solutions Of Too Fast Damage To The Vibrating Screen

Date: Aug. 18, 2020

The screen is the primary component of the vibrating screen. It locates in direct contact with the screening medium during the production process. It can classify materials of different sizes. It is the core vulnerable part of the vibrating screen. But for the improper selection of materials, irregular operation and other reasons have caused the phenomenon of rapid damage to the vibrating screen. Today we will analyze the causes for the rapid ruin to the vibrating screen and propose corresponding solutions.

1. Insufficient tension of the vibrating screen

Cause: they roll screens up in manufacturing, transportation, and storage. The transverse stainless steel wires of the screen are various beams subjected to bending loads. The inner side is subject to compressive stress and the outer side is subject to tensile stress. When the screen is installed in the screen frame, these bending internal stresses are not eliminated, and a part of the screen tension is used to overcome the bending stress generated by the screen wire to straighten the screen. After using the screen for a period, the screen will appear loose, resulting in insufficient tension of the screen, resulting in acute stress, concentration, and secondary vibration. The screen wire is repeatedly bent, and the plasticity is getting smaller and smaller. Finally, the screen wire will be brittle fracture and damage, and the screen will break in the middle. Even if it does not comply with, the screen material will yield for the increased load of drill cuttings during use, and the screen will be partially sunken, accumulation of cuttings, and finally, the screen will be destroyed.

Solution: If the screen is damaged too quickly because of insufficient tension of the screen, we can appropriately increase the tension of the screen to keep the screen surface flat, so that the tensile, compressive, and shear stresses of the screen will be relatively reduced, thus can improve the service life of the screen.

2. Improper selection of screen material

Cause: The key to identify the quality of the vibrating screen is the material of the screen. At present, the material of the screen can be divided into metal and non-metal materials. The metal materials mainly include low carbon, high carbon, high manganese steel, stainless steel, and other materials. Non-metallic screens are mostly made of rubber, nylon, polyurethane, and other materials. If the material we choose does not comply with the screening requirements. It will speed up the wear of the screen.

Solution: We have to choose a screen of suitable material according to the physical properties of the material to be screened. Among the various materials, the high-manganese steel screen is the most reliable. The high-manganese steel is an embedded Weaving method, the overlapping point of warp and weft is not prominent, the screen surface is flat, the force is even; it has better plasticity and toughness, can achieve better use effect, and the service life is more guaranteed.

3. Excessive material viscosity

Cause: When we use the vibrating screen to screen the material, if the humidity and viscosity of the material are relatively large, the material will stick tightly to the screen, resulting in the clogging of the screen hole, the difficulty of stratification, and the accumulation of the material on the screen surface, which will lead to the damage to the screen.

Solution: We can appropriately increase the amplitude and adjust the inclination of the screen surface, or we can replace the screen with an appropriate mesh size to avoid this problem.

4. Excessive disposable feeding

Cause: The principal function of the screen is supposed to be responsible for material screening. In the process of screening, we will keep putting materials into the vibrating screen. The handling capacity of the vibrating screen is yes, and the load it bears is the same. If we provide a large amount of material at one time, we will increase the load of the screen and cause damage to the screen.

Solution: During the process of utilizing the vibrating screen, we must feed the vibrating screen evenly and continuously to avoid throwing too much material at one time. We can also add buffer materials to slow down the impact on the screen. To extend the service life of the screen.
