Breaking Up Lumps Caused by Moisture

Breaking Up Lumps Caused by Moisture

A Netter customer working with a bulk solid that tends to retain small amounts of moisture, like salt or lime, needed to process the material so that the lumps that had formed would be broken apart. These lumps varied in size, requiring that the process be adaptable to these varying conditions.

Using a Netter vibrating table VTR 6-6 that is driven by 2 NEG 25930 electric vibrators, the customer began processing these bulk solids through a series of three vibrating sieves with progressively smaller mesh widths. The resulting output of this process was material that has only smaller and softer lumps that can then be processed with a normal sieve assembly.

Also, because the grates in this sieve must be cleaned frequently, the sieve grates are fixed in place using quick-release latches.
