Rotex Industrial Separators
Meet the machine that launched an industry. Precise. Rugged. Versatile.
The Rotex® industrial separator with automatic tensioning delivers on-spec product with less rejection of good materials for increased profits. Rotex endures today as the industry standard, thanks to countless applications in the toughest conditions around the world.
How It Works
Gyratory Reciprocating Motion
The Gyratory Reciprocating Motion gradually transitions along the length of the machine, starting off as purely gyratory motion at the head, then moving to elliptical movement in the center and reverting back to reciprocating toward the end.
- Circular motion at feed end
- Spreads the material across the full width of the screen surface
- Stratifies the material
- Aggressively conveys material forward
- Changing to elliptical motion at center
- Long-stroke elliptical action
- Enhances product stratification
- Conveys material at high capacity
- Reciprocating motion at discharge end
- Removes near-size particles
- Improves screening efficiency
- No vertical component ensures material is in constant contact with the screen surface
Eliminates Screen Blinding
Through the use of our mesh cleaning balls and Gyratory Reciprocating Motion, material blinding is virtually nonexistent.
Consistent Screen Tension
The screen is automatically tensioned with each new installation through the use of our unique screen-attachment method.
Longevity and Durability
Rotex drives are designed for long-term, trouble-free service with minimal maintenance.
Increased Screening Performance
All Rotex machines deliver greater efficiencies, superior particle accuracies and higher yields.
Rotex General Purpose
The Rotex general-purpose separator is a cost-effective solution that uses proven Rotex technology, but with wooden screen frames. This machine is recommended for applications where wood is permissable in the separation process and the separations are coarser than 30 mesh.
Rotex Dairy Screener
The Rotex Dairy Screener was custom-designed to meet the specific needs of the dairy industry. This exclusive machine generates higher yields and finer separations with no blinding. Best of all, it’s easy to clean during change-outs, reducing the chance of contamination.
Because the Rotex counterbalanced drive has low transmitted forces, the Rotex can be floor-mounted in properly designed structures, a design feature unique to this type of equipment. The Rotex can be mounted directly on the floor or on an elevated structural steel framework, which allows for drums and other equipment to be located under the machine. Rotex Group application engineers are available to recommend a stand for any specific application.
Rotex Screeners can be cable-suspended from the four corners of the machine, thereby isolating screening forces from the surrounding structure. Accurate counterbalancing of the Rotex Screener makes this type of installation option possible. If the existing overhead structure is not suitable or structurally unable to support the cable-suspended unit, the Rotex Screener can be suspended from a floor-mounted cable support stand. As with conventional cable suspension, this option effectively isolates the horizontal out-of-balance screening forces, which minimizes costs for new structures and permits the use of older structures that might not otherwise support cable-suspended equipment. Note that certain Rotex models can only be cable suspended.
