ANDRITZ UTwist - screen basket

For a plus in screening performance

The main goal of a screening process is efficient debris removal. However, it is important to consider other factors as well, such as capacity, reject rate, and runnability. Changing process conditions as we move from the feed to the reject zone of the screen basket make the screening process even more challenging.

The ANDRITZ U-Twist screen basket offers the solution to finding the balance between efficiency and runnability. The U-Twist provides a low profile when you want to concentrate on efficiency and a high profile when you have to avoid too much thickening. The unique profile geometry allows the wire to be tilted without affecting the slot width.

The bars can be twisted in any section of the basket. Thus, the profile height can be adjusted on a case-by-case basis, adapted perfectly to each process – always achieving the maximum efficiency without jeopardizing runnability.

  • Realization of full screening potential
  • Increased screening efficiency
  • Higher capacity
  • Longer lifetime due to reduced thickening
  • Tailor-made solutions
