How It Works

Gyratory Reciprocating Motion

The Gyratory Reciprocating Motion gradually transitions along the length of the screening 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.

  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 center
    • Long-stroke elliptical action
    • Enhances product stratification
    • Conveys material at high capacity
  3. Reciprocating motion at discharge end
    • Removes near-size particles
    • Improves screening efficiency
    • No vertical component ensures material is in constant contact with the screen surface
Benefits

Single Operator Maintenance

The ULTREX full view top cover panels and side access doors allow one operator to inspect and/or change a screen panel in minutes.

More Uptime, More Profit

Easy inspection and maintenance results in reduced screening costs and increased productivity.

Proven Screening Performance

The ULTREX gyratory-reciprocating motion delivers on-spec product at higher yields than competitive vibratory motions.

Longevity and Durability

Rotex drives are designed for long-term, trouble-free service with minimal maintenance required.

USDA, EHEDG and FSMA Compliant Design

Product contact surfaces in the ULTREX are in compliance with recommended sanitary and hygienic standards.

Specifications
Installation

Floor Mounting

Because the Rotex counterbalanced drive has low transmitted forces, the ULTREX can be floor-mounted in properly designed structures, a design feature unique to this type of equipment. The ULTREX 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. NOTE: Some ULTREX models with the Dynamic Absorber drive can only be cable suspended.

Cable Suspension

ULTREX Screeners can be cable-suspended from the four corners of the machine, thereby isolating screening forces from the supporting structure. Dual-counterbalancing of the ULTREX Screener makes this type of installation option possible without impacting separation performance. If the existing overhead structure is not suitable for cable suspension, the ULTREX can be suspended from a floor-mounted cable support stand. The support stand effectively isolates the horizontal out-of-balance screening forces, eliminating the need for additional overhead structure.
