Screening is a dynamic application and requires a machine that has been engineered to provide the throughput tonnage required for a given process application within a plant. Due to the very wide range of materials and need to handle high tonnages, scalping screens must be extremely robust and protected against intensive wear. Large drop heights, very heavy R.O.M. ore boulders and large cut sizes all mean that the screen and its component parts must be specifically designed for the loads and stresses normally not experienced in dry screening processes.

A significant, strategic move has resulted in local vibrating equipment manufacturer Kwatani entering into an agreement with black-owned consortium Vhatsila Holdings to form Kwatani. The agreement sees Vhatsila Holdings acquiring a 30% stakeholding in the company, making Kwatani the first in its class to exceed the requirements of the Mining Charter.

Engineering vibrating screens and feeders requires an in-depth understanding of the nature of the application. Gunter Vogel, chairman of Kwatani South Africa, says that it is critical with screens and feeders to ensure that forces are directed through sections of the structure and components that can handle those forces.

 

“In addition, it is important to ensure that for screens and feeders the centrifugal forces generated are directed evenly along the designed drive angle, near or through the centre of gravity. This ensures that the machines run symmetrically along the longitudinal axis. In...
