An always perfect Virto-Cuccolini sieve? Follow this advice!

Screeners are said to be the most often forgotten machinery in a facility.

Once installed, a well-sized vibrating sieve carefully configured for the application does not require significant maintenance. It has no rotating parts and does not require human intervention during the process.

However, we have to remember that the heart of a vibrating screen is the mesh – or the meshes, in case you have more than one deck.

The mesh is usually made of metal or nylon wire. It is designed to be elastic so that it can be tensioned on its housing ring; despite this, it maintains the elasticity necessary to transmit the vibrations to the product to be sieved.

That’s why the mesh is a delicate component: it needs particular attention both during its assembly and over time.

Breakage of the mesh cancels the sieving action – an event that can damage the process into which the product enters through the sieving phase.

To always have a perfect sieve, therefore, we recommend that you periodically check the status of its mesh or meshes. The verification period depends on the type of production cycle and must be defined accordingly, soon after the start-up phase.

At the same time, to avoid machine stoppages due to the breaking of the mesh, it is advisable always to have a spare mesh available, to be installed on the ring or already pre-installed on an extra ring.

In addition to the mesh, if present, it is also necessary to check the state of the cleaning elements – balls or cylinders – which wear out over time, gradually reducing their unclogging effect.
