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
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.
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.

The video below shows the screener in action and also describes in detail the real benefits of this machine. The unique design reduces operating costs and increases throughput but this movie shows other unique advantages such as the benefits of gyratory reciprocating motion, low angle slope and screen selection.
