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.
video ANIMATION – GUARDIAN Horizontal Screen
This animation offers an inside look at the features and benefits.
Horizontal vs Inclined Screens
Better stratification and separation
Uses oval throw to move material
60-65’ per minute (18-20m)
Heavier bed depths
More efficient (90% – 95%)
Low height for great portability
Typically more weight
Uses gravity to move material
85-100’ per minute (25-30m)
75% – 80% efficient
Usually mounted stationary
Most of the time, we rely on our dealers to stock Superior equipment. However, we typically have a small amount of factory stock.
Service & Parts
We always have been and always will be a privately-owned company. That means we can add more employees to our customer service team without Wall Street breathing down our neck. Isn’t that the way it should be?
They’re the same neighbors you’d trust to babysit your dog on the weekend. Our factory-trained dealers are a local connection for sales, service and parts.
Staffed by agents born to serve others, you’re welcome to call our technical service team 24/7/365. (If you call in the middle of the night, we can’t guarantee they’re in uniform!)
You know the old saying…”square pegs don’t fit in round holes?” It’s often the case with knock-off parts. Genuine Superior parts are forged from the same steel as our equipment
