Metso Full portfolio UFS Series screens

UltraFine Series™ screens

Fine wet screening with clear sustainability benefits

Metso UltraFine Series™ screens are high frequency vibrating wet screens that are designed for separation from 0.075 to 1 mm. The UFS screens address all of the challenges of previous fine wet screening technologies, enabling you to broadly implement this technology to improve profitability. By providing a sharper separation they are in many applications a more sustainable alternative to hydrocyclones. The more efficient separation increases the overall plant performance and reduces the specific energy consumption.
Up to 25% less energy use 

A more efficient separation process.

High performance

Compact assembly, double the screening area relative to other fine-screening technologies.

Low overall cost

Smaller footprint. Better screening performance.

Efficient alternative to hydrocyclones

Provides greater separation and energy efficiency.

Metso UltraFine Screens for cost-efficient high-performance wet screening

Ultrafine screens can be utilized in all mining and minerals processing applications, gravel pits, and in aggregates production. They are ideal for fine wet separation in grinding circuits when the highest separation efficiency is required.  

High performance in a compact assembly

Metso UltraFine Screens deliver double the screening area relative to other fine-screening technologies in a much more compact overall assembly. It utilizes a modular design with up to 10 individual screen decks nestled together into a single vibrating assembly.

Accurate feed distribution across the 10 decks is critical, so the unit also incorporates a patent pending feed splitter box to ensure the feed is evenly distributed across the complete width of each screen deck, increasing performance despite the compact size.

Low overall cost

The smaller footprint results in reduced building and infrastructure cost, which greatly reduces the initial capital cost to implement this technology.

Additionally, screening performance is less influenced by plant operational variability and require smaller pumps than hydrocyclones in a similar setup. These, in turn, contribute to better energy efficiency and improved recovery, resulting in a lower operating cost.

Efficient alternative to hydrocyclones

Metso UFS series are ideal for fine wet separation in grinding circuits. In many applications, they  provide greater separation and energy efficiency than hydrocyclones.

Ultrafine screens can also be used in conjunction with hydrocyclones in a two-stage classification to form a combination circuit for getting the best balance between cost and efficiency and to maximize the operational return on investment. 

A more sustainable choice

Improvements in the downstream processes result in a up to 25% reduction in energy use, an up to 10% reduction of embedded carbon, less pollution and possibly less water usage.

Nexa Resources increased grinding circuit throughput by 7%
Nexa Resources decided to test a mixed classification system, integrating hydrocyclones and UltraFine screens in one of its grinding circuits. It resulted in improved production capacity and in a 7% increase in grinding capacity, allowing not only primary ore processing, but also tailing reprocessing.
