The current Mogensen Sizer was originally built and installed in 1984 and will have handled in the order of 30 million tonne of aggregate over its working life to date. The Sizer is equipped with six screen decks and daily through put is about 5000 tonne per day with the Sizer being used to remove dust from the crushed rock prior to the final screening processes.
The sizer with its angled decks and increased mesh apertures enable high volumes of material to be screened efficiently in a relatively small floor space. The amplitude of the sizer is 10mm and the linear vibratory action is provided by a pair of Invicta vibrators.
The original specification called for a pair of B955/6 Invicta vibrators to provide linear vibration to the Sizer. An original B955/6 vibrator can be seen bolted to the mounting beam below the Sizer and this will have been running for approximately 80000 operating hours. The B900 series of vibrators has now been superseded by the BLz series of Invicta vibrators which is fully interchangeable with the older designs. The BLz series is approved for use in Zone 21 & 22 areas and is designed with IP66 protection to prevent dust ingress to the internal components. Invicta vibrators are continuously rated for use in hot and dusty environments and have been used successfully in all parts of the world.
