Unique benefits of FMW Chip Screen:

  • High-quality screening at maximum yield, ensuring only acceptable material is retained
  • Space-saving design, easily fitting into various plant layouts
  • Three inclined screening decks (optionally in stainless steel available) for optimal separation efficiency
  • Bolted construction for enhanced structural integrity

    How it works:

    The Chip Screen efficiently removes impurities such as oversized chips and fines from the material flow. Its three screen decks, each with different perforations, separate the material into distinct fractions. The oversized material remains on the top screen deck and is transported to the Re-Chipper and cutted into the desired lenght and blowed back to the screen for re-screening. The remaining two screen decks separates the accept material. The bottom screen deck seperates the fines.
