thyssenkrupp Industrial Solutions developed a new multi-vibrating screen featuring an intelligent control system.

According to thyssenkrupp, goovi ensures good vibrations in secondary and tertiary screening within crushed stone or gravel applications. A new drive technology is combined with an innovative control system to provide a significant increase in operational flexibility, product quality and performance, the company says.

“With the goovi, all vibration modes – circular, linear and elliptical – can be realized in one machine, allowing flexible adaptation to changing job requirements and material properties,” says Achim Schönfelder, head of the screen and feeder product lines at thyssenkrupp Mining Technologies. “In addition, the low height of the goovi facilitates simple installation in existing plants.”

The goovi is driven at four different points – one on the front, back and each side – resulting in an optimum stress distribution in sidewalls, thyssenkrupp says. The goovi uses fewer rotating parts than conventional screens, the company adds, translating to a lower weight and height, as well as reduced maintenance and wear.

Two or three standard unbalance motors are installed at each drive point, so each goovi is driven by eight or 12 motors, depending on size.

With the control system, speed and flow direction can be adjusted so operating parameters can be optimally adapted to the requirements of production at any time. Additionally, thyssenkrupp says operators can flexibly react to changes in material properties during operation and optimize the processing of difficult-to-screen materials.

“To optimize costs and delivery times, thyssenkrupp developed a range of standard machines,” says Peter Berlitz, product manager of screens at thyssenkrupp Mining Technologies. The single-deck and double-deck versions are available in six different widths and four different lengths, with a maximum screening area of 26 sq. meters. However, due to the straightforward modular design, custom solutions tailored to a particular application can also be supplied.”
