Exciter technologies improve vibrating-screen performance

| By Mary Page Bailey and Gerald Ondrey

Haver & Boecker Niagara

Niagara brand vibrating-screen exciters (photo) are offered in four models, each of which is adjustable to provide eight weight configurations, delivering a large static-moment range. These exciters come standard on all of this company’s exciter-driven XL-Class and L-Class vibrating screens, and are also available as aftermarket parts for any brand of exciter-driven machine. Exciter-driven vibrating screens are ideal for high-tonnage applications and heavy-duty environments, such as dewatering or semi-autogenous grinding (SAG) mill screening, due to the equipment’s strength and advanced sealing system. These exciters are engineered to set the required stroke, frequency and exact static moment for each application, resulting in improved screening performance. The average lifespan of a Niagara Exciter is 15,000 h. — Haver & Boecker Niagara, St. Catherines, Ont., Canada
