Particle stratification of a vibrating screen with translation-swing composite motion
Journal of Vibroengineering
With the development of science and technology, more and more demand was proposed in the sieving industry. The sieving theory has been used to optimize parameters of vibrating screen to achieve a higher screening efficiency. Perfecting the sieving theory was became the main goal of most scholars to study the vibrating screen. Stratification as part of sieving theory research, the screening process and screening result was deeply influenced by stratification. In this paper, the sedimentation
... e sedimentation difference was defined to make the stratification became a numerical description. The discrete element method (DEM) has been used to simulate the screening process about the vibrating screen with translation-swing composite motion. The relationship between screening efficiency and sedimentation difference under each parameter is established and the effect of stratification on screening efficiency is studied under various single parameter conditions including vibration frequency, amplitude, vibration direction angle, swinging frequency, and swinging angle. The conclusions are: sedimentation difference is closely related to screening efficiency, the screening efficiency had obviously a positive correlation with the sedimentation difference. Combined with the value of the sedimentation difference, a better positive stratification is meaningful to the screening process and screening efficiency.
