Screening & Separation
Innovations in screening and separation in dry material handling operations
Screening separates a flow of material into multiple grades by particle size, these grades are then either further processed to an intermediary product or a finished product. Screening is an integral part of many dry material handling processes. In the context of screening or sieving equipment selection, the machines are evaluated on their ability to optimize product quality and screening efficiency. A sieve is used to process individual batches of a product, and a screen is used on a continuous flow of a product. There are many factors that are affecting the effectiveness of screens and sieves, for instance moisture, blinding, mesh size and wire diameter, capacity, cohesion, adhesion and the direction of approach of particles to the screen surface.
Magnetic separation systems are designed to remove metal contaminants from from bulk streams. Magnetic separators result in practically no product loss and are suitable for removal of regularly occurring and larger quantities of metal contamination in processing operations.

Experts for Screening & Separation
ST-HYACINTHE, QC – LAW MAROT MILPRO inc (LMM) are in the business of offering the very latest in equipment for the maintenance, storage and transformation of bulk products.Read more
RE80™ Tear-Drop Probe Magnets are a step above the rest when it comes to increased separation efficiency and product-to-magnet contact. Compared to standard probe magnets, the RE80™ Tear-Drop Probe Magnet is specifically designed to improve laminar flow of products. This is achieved by reducing the impact of the product on the surface of regular, circular magnet bars/probes, transverse to the product flow. So what defines a ‘regular probe magnet’?Read more
The quality of fine metal powders used in the production of components, paints and coatings directly impacts the quality of the final product particularly when processing precious metals such as titanium, bronze, copper etc. Therefore, it is imperative any excess metal powder left after production is reclaimed and recovered for reuse.Read more
