Vibratory Screeners

Vibratory screeners are versatile and efficient devices used for separating and sorting particles of different sizes and shapes. They are commonly used in a variety of industries including food, dairy, chemical, pharmaceutical, and mining, to name a few.

Our vibratory screeners are available from 18-100″ diameters with up to 5 decks and any combination of optional configurations to fit any project. These optional configurations include sanitary, gap-free, lift-assist lids, CIP, various solutions for difficult products, ultrasonic, and more.

Circular vibratory screener, view of insides

Operating Principle

Vibratory screeners continuously fluidize product in a circular patterns over screens of descending mesh size, discharging the particles that are captured at each layer, and passing the smaller particles through the screens for further sorting. Screens are readily available with perforations of every size, spacing, and shape, but custom configurations are available as well.


Circular Vibratory Screeners

This type of screener is the most widely used and is easiest to clean, makes best use of screen’s surface area, and produces the most consistent end-product.

Linear (Rectangular) Vibratory Screeners

This type of screener is used for fine screening of materials and is equipped with a linear screen that vibrates in a straight line motion. The linear motion of the screen allows for precise separation and sorting of the material into different sizes.

Gyratory Vibratory Screeners

This type of screener is used for high-volume screening of materials that do not respond well to the consistency or relatively low force enacted by vibratory motors. The imbalanced weighting subjects bearings to extreme load, an issue we help alleviate by continuously pressure-feeding them with lubricate.

Ultrasonic Vibratory Screeners

This type of screener is equipped with an ultrasonic generator that produces high-frequency vibrations in the mesh itself—as opposed to only the unit as a whole—which helps prevent product from getting lodged in the screen, also known as blinding.


  • Efficient: Vibratory screeners are designed to separate and sort particles of different sizes and shapes with high accuracy and efficiency. This ensures that only the desired size particles are processed, reducing waste and increasing productivity.
  • Versatility: Vibratory screeners can be used to screen a wide range of materials, including powders, granules, and liquids, making them popular in a wide variety of industries.
  • Low Maintenance: Vibratory screeners are designed to be low maintenance and are constructed of durable materials that are designed to withstand the rigors of continuous use. This means that they require minimal upkeep and maintenance, reducing downtime and increasing productivity. We offer preventative maintenance programs to reduce total cost of ownership.
  • Cost-Effective: Vibratory screeners are designed to be energy-efficient and require minimal investment in equipment and maintenance, reducing overall operating costs.

When To Use

Vibratory screeners are best for separating and sorting materials of different sizes and shapes, such as powders, granules, and liquids. They are commonly used in a variety of industries including food processing, chemical, pharmaceutical, and mining to name a few.

When Not To Use

Vibratory screeners are not effective for screening materials that have very small or very large particle sizes, or materials that have a sticky consistency. In these cases, alternative screening methods, such as air-classification or centrifugation, may be more appropriate.

Additionally, vibratory screeners may not be suitable for applications where the material being screened is sensitive to mechanical stress or damage, such as delicate food products or fragile pharmaceuticals. In these cases, alternative screening methods, such as pressure or gravity-based screeners, may be more appropriate.
