Tumbler Screeners

Sievex Tumbler Screening Machines (TSM)

Tumbler screeners uses elliptical action which aids in screening of even very fine material. As like panning for gold, the fine particles tend to stay towards the center and the larger go to the outside. It allows for segregation and unloads the screen surface so that it can effectively do its job. With the addition of multiple decks, ball cleaning decks and ultrasonic vibration systems, even difficult products can be sieved at high capacity to very fine separations.

Tumbler screening technique are widely used in chemical, pharmaceutical, food processing, mining, plastics, stone and soil, metallurgy, and recycling industries in order to sort small, heavy, light, dry, dusty, wet and sticky materials which are less than 20 millimeter.

Sievex Tumbler Screening Machines (Sievex TSM) is the ultimate supplier for micron level sorting separations. As low as 20 micron to 20 millimeter (0.020 – 20 mm) products can be sieved by Sievex TSMs.

100 micron to 20 millimeter throughput can be obtained by conventional tumbler screening machines; however, 20 to 100 micron throughput can be achieved only by the unique Ultrasonic Sieving System of Sievex Tumbler Screening Machines.


For example, for the mining industry, the main sieved ore materials are dolomite, calcite, kaolin, feldspar, gypsum, olivine, graphite, coal and heavy minerals. All these are easily and expertly separated by the TSM Screeners.

Leading advantage of the Sievex TSM is; sieving and sorting up to 5 different sizes of a product in the range of up to 25 ton/h feeding. For this application, 4 decks and a 2660 mm diameter tumbler screening machines is utilized.
