Scalping Screens

Application and Kwatani Product

  • Kwatani’s mechanically robust scalping screen design scalps coarse and fine particles.
  • Typically scalping is the first step in the screening process. Large particles subject the vibrating screen deck to intense wear and strain due to significant drop heights and high tonnage.
  • Kwatani scalping screens efficiently remove the excess over or under sized large or small material before feeding into crushers, mills, or other comminution machines in the downstream process.

Kwatani Performance Benefits

  • Kwatani scalping screens are custom-designed to meet the specific process requirements.
  • Kwatani’s mechanically robust designs handle the harshest mining applications.
