In the sand washing plant
, in addition to the commonly used sand washing machine
, screening equipment such as dewatering screen
and vibrating screen are also commonly used, so how to distinguish dewatering screen and vibrating screen? Now, let's talk about the difference between dewatering screen and vibrating screen, so as to guide you to apply them correctly.
The working principle and structure of dewatering screen and vibrating screen are very similar. The dewatering effect of the dewatering screen is remarkable, which is suitable for the dewatering operation of materials with large moisture content; while the vibrating screen has high vibration force, which has obvious screening and sizing effect, but the dewatering effect is relatively weak, which is more suitable for the screening and classification of materials with small moisture content. Users should first choose to use vibrating screen or dewatering screen according to the function.
Generally speaking, although both vibrating screen and dewatering screen belong to screening equipment, there are great differences between them. Here are the details of the differences between dewatering screen and vibrating screen?
Different working principles of dewatering screen and vibrating screen
The dewatering screen adopts double motor self synchronization technology, universal eccentric block and adjustable amplitude vibrator. It is mainly composed of screen box, vibration exciter, support system and motor. Two unconnected vibrators are respectively driven by the belt coupling shaft for synchronous reverse operation. The centrifugal force generated by the two groups of eccentric mass is superimposed along the vibration direction and counteracted by the reverse centrifugal force, so as to form a single exciting vibration along the vibration direction and make the screen box move in a reciprocating straight line.
The vibrating screen works by using the reciprocating rotary vibration produced by the vibrator excitation. The upper rotary heavy block of the vibrator makes the screen surface produce plane rotary vibration, while the lower rotary heavy block makes the screen surface produce cone rotary vibration. The combined effect makes the screen surface produce double rotary vibration.
Different application field of dewatering screen and vibrating screen
The dewatering screen is to dry discharge the materials such as quartz sand, coal and tailings slurry to realize solid-liquid separation, so as to reduce the moisture content of materials so as to facilitate stacking and transportation. The more materials on the screen surface ,the better.Dewatering screen is usually used in combination with sand washing machine, which is often used in wet sand production line. In the sand production process, due to the fierce collision and the rock itself has a certain soil content, the broken sand contains stone powder and mud powder. The existence of mud powder and stone powder will seriously affect the quality of sand. Generally, the mud powder and soil in the sand are removed by washing with the sand washer. After the material is cleaned by the sand washer, the water content of the material increases, so it needs to be dehydrated, desorbed and deslimed through the dewatering screen to further reduce the water content and mud content.
Vibrating screen is to screen materials with different particle sizes by classification, including dry screening and wet screening. The proportion of materials above and below the screen depends on the material itself.The application scope of vibrating screen is very wide. Vibrating screen is generally used in combination with vibrating feeder and crusher, which is often used for material classification in crushing production line. Vibrating screen is generally used to deal with dry materials, but it is not good for screening materials with high moisture and high viscosity. If the moisture content of the material is high, the vibrating screen will make the material adhere to the screen surface more tightly due to the vibration, resulting in material congestion and forced shutdown. If the moisture content of the material is high, it is necessary to install a high-pressure water spray device on the vibrating screen and adopt wet production.
Advantages and disadvantages of dewatering screen and vibrating screen
Advantages and disadvantages of vibrating screen
The vibrating screen is light in weight, high in efficiency, complete and diverse in model series, and has many layers. It can meet various demands for material screening. For high moisture, viscous materials, vibrating screen is not suitable for application.
Advantages and disadvantages of dewatering screen
The dewatering screen can be customized according to the processing capacity and water content of the material, and the screen hole can be adjusted according to the needs. The dewatering effect is good, and the equipment noise is small. It is suitable for processing products with low mud content. With the same treatment scale, the product volume of dewatering screen is larger.
Installation inclination of dewatering screen and vibrating screen
Because the main function of the dewatering screen is to dehydrate the materials, the screen surface is inclined upward to make the materials stay longer, which is more conducive to the dehydration of materials and reduce the moisture content of materials.
As the main function of the vibrating screen is to screen and classify the materials, the inclined layout or horizontal layout is often used, which is more conducive to the discharge of materials and improve the screening efficiency.
