Patented adjustable clamps ensure uniform sealing of cover and screen decks.
Patented quick-snap tension clips allow for even tensioning across the entire screen.
Ask your Rotex representative how we can fully customize your machine inlets/outlets and add liners, decks, aspiration and more.
Mesh cleaning balls keep screen openings clear, maintaining efficiency and capacity.
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.
Through the use of our mesh cleaning balls and Gyratory Reciprocating Motion, material blinding is virtually nonexistent.
The screen is automatically tensioned with each new installation through the use of our unique screen-attachment method.
Rotex drives are designed for long-term, trouble-free service with minimal maintenance.
All Rotex machines deliver greater efficiencies, superior particle accuracies and higher yields.
The Rotex general-purpose separator is a cost-effective solution that uses proven Rotex technology, but with wooden screen frames. This machine is recommended for applications where wood is permissable in the separation process and the separations are coarser than 30 mesh.
The Rotex Dairy Screener was custom-designed to meet the specific needs of the dairy industry. This exclusive machine generates higher yields and finer separations with no blinding. Best of all, it’s easy to clean during change-outs, reducing the chance of contamination.
Because the Rotex counterbalanced drive has low transmitted forces, the Rotex can be floor-mounted in properly designed structures, a design feature unique to this type of equipment. The Rotex 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.
Rotex Screeners can be cable-suspended from the four corners of the machine, thereby isolating screening forces from the surrounding structure. Accurate counterbalancing of the Rotex 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 Rotex 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 Rotex 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 top cover is the main point of access to the screen decks; by releasing the toolless compensating clamps and lifting the cover off, you can access the screen frames directly. Each deck must be removed for screen change-out. The screens are attached using Rotex tensioning clips, which automatically draw the correct tension on the screen clothing.
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:

Slide bearings are bearings where only sliding friction is generated. The shaft is generally supported by the sliding surface, with oil and air in between to facilitate sliding movement. Sliding bearings are lightweight and have a long operating life while introducing minimal vibrations or noise.
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.
