Vibration screens are used for separation of matter according to their sizes, and they’re especially important in mining processes. The machinery is basically formed by a motor, exciter mechanisms, bearings, sieve screen mesh and vibration attenuators. The functioning happens with a precise vibration movement on an adequate inclination angle, which provides benefits like energy economy and reduction of costs in screening processes.
Various components of a vibration screen can present faults, that can lead to repairs, downtime and various costs. The implementation of a continuous monitoring system for fault detection and other predictive maintenance strategies are fundamental for increasing the safety and reliability of this machinery.
