Apex Screener

The Apex screening machine combines Gyratory Reciprocating Motion with an ergonomic design which increases productivity while reducing overall downtime. Both maintenance and inspection of the Apex machine can be conducted by a single operator, allowing for less downtime. All screens of the Apex can be inspected in less than 10 minutes and screens can be changed 80% faster. Operator lifted components weigh no more than 18.5kgs with an individual screen panel weighing 2.25kgs.

Additional Features for APEX Screeners


Most Apex Screeners can be equipped with aspiration hoods to remove dust and other light material. These hoods allow air to be pulled over the falling product stream and are adjustable for various products and rates. The aspiration feature efficiently removes unwanted, light-weight particles from the product stream. In addition to improving the product quality, the storage and handling of the product is improved with less troublesome foreign material to clog or contaminate the surrounding environment.

Tool-less Cam

The innovation of the Tool-Less Cam, allows for positioning of the ball tray without a wrench saving valuable time removing screens or ball trays for inspection or maintenance. This enables a single operator can complete all screen inspections quickly and easily in additional to the many additional benefits such uniform sealing pressure so that the screen panels are properly sealed every time. Tool-Less Cams can also be retrofit to your existing APEX Screener.

Gyratory Reciprocating Motion

Gyratory Reciprocating Motion

The Gyratory Reciprocating Motion gradually diminishes along the length of the machine to an elliptical path and finally to a nearly straight line motion at the discharge end.

1. Circular motion at feed end

Spreads the material across the full width of the screen surface
Stratifies the material
Aggressively conveys material forward

2. Changing to elliptical motion at centre

Long stroke elliptical action
Enhances product stratification
Conveys material at high capacity

3. Straight-line motion at discharge end

Removes near-size particles
Improves screening efficiency
No vertical component ensures material is in constant contact with the screen surface

Floor Mounting

Because the Rotex counterbalanced drive has low transmitted forces, the Apex can be floor mounted in properly designed structures, a design feature unique to this type of equipment. The Apex can be mounted directly on the floor or on an elevated structural steel framework, which allows for drums and other equipment to be located under the machine. Rotex application engineers are available to recommend a stand for any specific application.

Cable Suspension

Apex Screeners can be cable-suspended from the four corners of the machine, thereby isolating out-of-balance screening forces from the surrounding structure. Accurate counterbalancing of the Apex Screener makes this type of installation option possible. If the existing overhead structure is not suitable or structurally unable to support the cable-suspended unit, the Apex Screener can be suspended from a floor-mounted cable support stand. As with conventional cable suspension, this option effectively isolates the horizontal out-of-balance screening forces, which minimizes costs for new structures and permits the use of older structures that might not otherwise support cable-suspended equipment.

More Up-Time, More Profit

Easy single operator inspection and maintenance results in increased processing up-time, reduced screening costs and the ability to produce more quality product.

Unique Gyratory Motion

Rotex’s Gyratory-reciprocating motion provides efficient distribution, stratification, and separation resulting in higher yields and less rejection of good material.

New Easy Access Screens

Screens and ball trays are accessible from the side of machine. It’s no longer necessary to remove the top cover of machine to access screens and ball trays.

Durable and Reliable

High quality and rugged Rotex construction featuring abrasion and corrosion resistant stainless steel.
