It is that distinctive shape that gave the multi-sloped screen the name “banana”. In industry, the “banana” term is used interchangeably with “multi-sloped”. Used in wet and dry applications, banana screens are vibratory equipment which use the distinctive shape to process larger volumes of material using a smaller footprint. This is compared to inclined horizontal screens, which as the name implies are horizontal and donʼt have the banana shape. Screens, including banana screens, are used in mining and mineral processing industries. Used in different stages of the process cycle, in either wet or dry applications, the objective of using these equipment is to group together a specific mineral-size fractions, while reducing the the amount of fines carried over with the oversized material.
