KPI-JCI and Astec Mobile Screens has introduced a new high frequency screen designed for the industrial sand market, showcased in the Astec Industries booth (C-50327 Central Hall) at the 2014 ConExpo-Con/Agg tradeshow March 4-8 in Las Vegas, Nev.
The new high frequency screen for the industrial sand market is a redesigned version of the original Vari-Vibe® High Frequency Screen from KPI-JCI and Astec Mobile Screens. Engineered to be a versatile screen, the high frequency screen is designed to operate in numerous markets, including fractionated reclaimed asphalt pavement (FRAP), wood pelleting and now industrial sand.
Industrial sand refers to high-purity silica sand products with closely controlled sizing, according to Patrick Reaver, product manager for KPI-JCI and Astec Mobile Screens. A more precise product than common concrete and asphalt gravels, industrial sand requires state-of-the-art screening equipment. Industrial sand is used for a variety of products, from glass to chemical cleaners, to golf course bunkers and natural and synthetic athletic fields.
The new high frequency screen for the industrial sand market is a 5' wide x 12' long screen specifically designed for dry screening fine materials in an efficient and cost-effective manner. It is fully sealed for dust, spillage and collection, and has a broader range of operating angle than a conventional high frequency screen, providing greater application flexibility and higher capacity for fine dry screening.
Because industrial sand applications require a very tight band of in-spec material where purity is high and separations are very fine, the new high frequency screen was designed for maximum stratification and increased probability of separation, Reaver said. The high frequency screen allows for very efficient cuts and separations of products, especially when the separations being made are fine.
While KPI-JCI and Astec Mobile Screens’ High Frequency Screen is best known for traditional aggregate screening applications, the company is continually seeking out new markets to position its products, Reaver said.
"While we as consumers often take these materials and the products they provide for granted, separating specialty sand for these specific applications is no simple task," Reaver said. "Producing such precise materials requires extreme precision, both on the part of the producer as well as the equipment. We believe our redesigned high frequency screen for the industrial sand market is the key to a successful industrial sands operation."
