Portable plants and other crushing equipment can come in many shapes and sizes depending on the needs of a producer. Just as integral to a crushing operation as an impactor or jaw crusher are the screens being utilized to sort product.
With so many options and layouts, how can producers determine which screening setup will benefit them the most and optimize operations? There are a handful of variables that can influence the screening configuration of a portable plant or crushing project.
Foremost, it is important for aggregate producers or C&D recyclers to explore the fundamentals of the job before them. One of the key factors that can dictate which screening setup will be most valuable is how many differently sized products is desired in the end.
For example, if a portable plant utilizes more screening features such as a 3-deck versus a 2-deck screening setup, it will be able to separate product into more uniquely sized stockpiles. Therefore, if a producer is only needing to generate a minimum number of sizes, it can be worthwhile to invest in a portable plant with less screening capabilities.
Furthermore, for producers who are looking to generate a wider number of product sizes, not only will the number of screens on a portable plant or on a crushing job benefit their business, but how those screens are laid out throughout production will help to streamline operations.
For example, many of the portable crushing plants that Eagle Crusher manufactures feature a hopper with a grizzly deck that is able to remove fines or even certain sized material before crushing, depending on the type of grizzly deck.
Laying out your screening equipment in an efficient order, like utilizing grizzly decks or even separate screening plants, can help to eliminate redundant crushing and screening that can become a hindrance to optimizing the flow of production.
