Minerals Machine








ROTEX Screeners are self-contained production screening machines for separating dry materials according to particle size. Through the unique gyratory-reciprocating motion of their near-horizontal screen surface, combined with a positive screen mesh cleaning system, ROTEX provides unusually high efficiency and capacity. All of this is the result of continued development throughout hundreds of applications in many industries.

All ROTEX Screeners utilise a unique screening action that provides accuracy of separation whilst maintaining production rates. As shown in the image above, the material is fed into the machine, distributed over the entire width of the screen surface and conveyed towards the discharge end. Larger particles remain above the screen surface, while smaller particles pass through, as determined by the aperture sizes selected for each screen mesh for the application.

ROTEX Screeners can be supplied with one to five screening surfaces producing between two and six separate product grades.

Rotex Tension Clip Design

The ROTEX tension-clip allows for the quick removal and replacement of the screen mesh by hand. This can be done on-site, minimising downtime.



The ROTEX Minerals Separator was specifically designed to meet the demanding screening requirements of Minerals applications.

ROTEX and MEGATEX Screeners are ideal for processing a wide variety of mineral products including Abrasives, Clay, Rock, Limestone, Salt and Sand.
