Guardian® Horizontal Screen

Guardian® Horizontal Screen by Superior Industries

Size & Separate

Screens are historically available in two configurations: horizontal or inclined. The Guardian Horizontal Screen, as the name states, falls under a “horizontal” screen configuration.

After primary crushing, material usually moves to a screening stage where it is sized and separated ahead of further crushing or — in some cases — final stockpiling.

Horizontal screens operate at a relatively flat angle usually less than 10°. A series of shafts produce a vibrating effect, which moves the material down the length of the screen.

Larger material stays on the top deck while smaller rocks and stones fall through up to four layers of uniquely sized screen media. The result is segregation by screen opening size.

Horizontal screens are typically used in portable or mobile equipment, where clearance is an issue, or in applications requiring the most accurate sizing of materials.

  • 2, 3 or 4-deck configurations
  • Maximum material size up to 10” (254mm)
  • General sizing from 6” (150mm) to 1/8” (3mm)

How we differ – GUARDIAN Horizontal Screen

Historically, there haven’t been many differentiating features between horizontal screen manufacturers. “A screen is a screen,” the market would say. We’re working hard to change that perception. Watch our vibratory product manager help show how Superior is different.
