High Shear Screen


Derrick Corporation wet screening machines include a specialized unit for processing light, flaky, hard to convey solids. The Derrick Model 48-120W-4M High Shear Screener is a custom designed, open single-deck machine that can be operated in both non-hazardous and hazardous environments. This machine is typically used in wet sizing applications as fine as 325 mesh (45 microns) using Derrick Polyweb® urethane screens for kaolin clay, mica and fly ash.


  • Low sound production
  • Easy screen inspection, removal and installation
  • Light-weight screen panels for easy installation
  • 304 Stainless steel construction option
  • 37.5 degree machine angle with screen panel sections set at multiple downhill angles promoting thin, uniform slurry layer for positive conveyance of light and plate-like particles
  • Wash water spray bar system
  • Abrasion resistant bonded rubber lining option for feeder and discharge hoppers
  • Abrasion resistant urethane exterior coating option for vibrating screen frame and discharge hopper lining
  • Open design allows visual inspection of screen panels
  • Convex crown promotes consistent screen panel tension, increases screen panel life
  • Perpendicular-to-flow screen panel tensioning allows for use of Derrick Polyweb urethane and traditional wire screen panels
  • Rubber float mounts effectively isolate support frame from vibration of screen frame
  • Rapid change draw bolt/draw bar assemblies provides fast and easy screen panel changes
  • Derrick Polyweb urethane screens as fine as 325 mesh (45 microns) and traditional wire screens produce efficient fines removal from 40 mesh (425 microns) to 400 mesh (38 microns)
  • Zero maintenance
  • E3 vibratory motor promotes positive conveyance of oversize particles
  • Powerful, quiet and low energy consumption
  • Greased-for-life bearings
