The McLanahan MD vibratory screen is a compact, high capacity dry screening unit used in a variety of industries. Dried sand, fertilizer, iron ore, wood pellets, quick and burnt lime, limestone, grain, gypsum, salt, sugar and animal feed (pellets and crumbles) are just a few of the materials and applications in which the MD vibratory screen is capable of screening efficiently and effectively.

The MD vibratory screen provides producers more tonnes per hour per square metre of screen surface area and handles much larger capacities than conventional screens while occupying the same – or less – floor space. Additionally, it is capable of making multiple product sizes simultaneously as progressively smaller material sizes are separated from deck to deck.

McLanahan MD vibratory screens are available in widths ranging from 500 mm to 2,000 mm with one to five screen decks depending upon the application. It is capable of handling feed sizes as large as approximately 75 mm and can make size separations down to approximately 60 mesh.

McLanahan’s design concept for this screen reduces the risk of pegging and blinding, while achieving high capacities due to its ability to make a separation at a given size using a mesh aperture of greater size.

To provide longer screen life, larger particles are removed by heavier, larger screens, while finer screens see only smaller particles and only a portion of the incoming feed.

McLanahan maintains in-house equipment to conduct laboratory screening tests on materials to help ensure that you have the correctly sized MD vibratory screen for your application.
