TASK: Screening is an important step in the processing of bulk materials. The BIVITEC, starts where conventional vibratory screens become inefficient and less economical. Difficult products, such as damp, stalky and leafy materials or matted substances block the screen openings of conventional vibratory screens, thus making efficient screening impossible.
BIVITEC provides a simple solution to these challenging demands: with the help of resonance, a driving mechanism provides two vibratory movements in which the flexible polyurethane mats are expanded and compressed in turns, and the difficult to screen product is separated at high acceleration. The dynamically excited screen mats thus remain free and allow efficient screening.
The BIVITEC special vibratory screen masters a wide variety of different tasks and can be deployed in classic wet and dry screening as well as in the screening of difficult-to-screen wet materials. BIVITEC screening technology has proved itself over decades in the processing of construction raw materials, industrial materials, salts, ores, the coal and steel industries as well as in the recycling industry.
Moreover, the BIVITEC screening machine can also be used as a low-maintenance, space-saving alternative to a a solution using several conventional screening machines for screening unproblematic bulk materials.
