Sizing is the general separation of products according to their size. The simplest form of sizing is screening. Screening is effective for segregating minerals into specific particle sizes to create various final products, remove refuse material, reduce fines generation and minimize crusher size.
Screening equipment can be stationary or portable. When selecting equipment to screen a product, considerations should be given to material being screened, including shape and size; screen media openings; amount of material already to size; presence of harmful materials; need for water; and more.
