Each panel is individually tensioned and sealed; one panel provides nine or 12 square feet of screen area.
Access any individual deck independently for inspection and maintenance.
Heavy-duty discharge chute directs separated fraction flows to desired outlet locations. Available with or without aspiration, hinged access and dust-vent connections.
No tools are required for screen change-outs, ensuring proper installation every time.
The Gyratory Reciprocating Motion gradually transitions along the length of the machine, starting off as purely gyratory motion at the head, then moving to elliptical movement in the center and reverting back to reciprocating toward the end.
Side access doors combined with pre-tensioned screen panels allow a single operator to change the entire machine in minutes.
Easy single-operator inspection and maintenance results in increased processing uptime, reduced screening costs and the ability to produce more quality product.
When compared to standard separators, all Rotex machines deliver greater efficiencies, superior particle accuracies and higher yields.
Rotex drives are designed for long-term, trouble-free service with minimal maintenance required.
Ask your Rotex representative how we can fully customize your machine inlets/outlets and add liners, decks, aspiration and more.
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, lightweight 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.
The innovation of the Toolless 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 to complete all screen inspections quickly and easily, and offers many additional benefits such as uniform sealing pressure so that the screen panels are properly sealed every time. Toolless Cams can also be retrofitted to your existing APEX Screener.
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 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. Note that certain APEX models can only be cable suspended.
Rotex Drive Heads come in three configurations.
The drag link is a physical connection that attaches the screen box assembly to the machine base. This connection converts the gyratory motion created by the drive head to reciprocating motion for precise, near-size separation.
The screen access doors allow for toolless entry, single-operator maintenance and inspections, and independent screen deck access. This means you can change the fourth deck without removing decks one, two and three, saving time and effort by directly accessing the screens that are most likely to fail first. The screens are removed through the use of toolless cams that raise and lower the individually pre-tensioned panels. With each screen change you also receive a brand-new seal, ensuring zero product contamination.
Inspection ports are located on the top cover of the machine. When the machine is stopped, you can easily remove the inspection cap and ensure the screener is operating correctly. This could include inspections for screen blinding, screen tears or material buildup.
Rotex customizes each machine configuration to match the exact application needs. Inlet connection options include:
Rotex customizes each machine configuration to match the exact application needs. Outlet connection options include:
The APEX™ discharge chute offers easily accessible outlets and customizable outlet configurations. Outside of the outlets, you can also customize the discharge chute by adding hinges to improve accessibility for product cleanouts and inspections. Lastly, you can include up to two different aspirated fractions for added separation capabilities.
