Rotex drive heads come in three configurations.
The drag link is a physical connection that attaches the screen box assembly to the machine base; this connection converts the gyratory motion created by the drive head to reciprocating motion for precise, near-size separation.
The top cover is the main point of access to the screen decks; by releasing the toolless compensating clamps and lifting the cover off, you can access the screen frames directly. Each deck must be removed for screen change-out. The screens are attached using Rotex tensioning clips, which automatically draw the correct tension on the screen clothing.
Inspection ports are located on the top cover of the machine. When the machine is stopped, you can easily remove the inspection cap and ensure the screener is operating correctly. This could include inspections for screen blinding, screen tears or material buildup.

Slide bearings are bearings where only sliding friction is generated. The shaft is generally supported by the sliding surface, with oil and air in between to facilitate sliding movement. Sliding bearings are lightweight and have a long operating life while introducing minimal vibrations or noise.
The APEX™ discharge chute offers easily accessible outlets and customizable outlet configurations. Outside of the outlets, you can also customize the discharge chute by adding hinges to improve accessibility for product cleanouts and inspections. Lastly, you can include up to two different aspirated fractions for added separation capabilities.
