Highest screening accuracy


Ramp up your screening accuracy with the revolutionary, high-energy elliptical-motion Metso ES Series™ screens. The combination of horizontal decks, high acceleration and aggressive elliptical vibration provides a strong stratification of the bed depth and highest screening accuracy.

Moreover, the Metso ES Series horizontal screens can be fitted with either tensioned screening panels or modular snap on panels. The screen angle is adjustable from 0-10° to increase the capacity when needed. Stroke and Revolutions Per Minute (RPM) parameters can be set up within a wide range to meet optimal performance.

The integrated feedbox is very deep and long to allow easy interface with the feed conveyor. Furthermore, the design provides immediate particle distribution over the first panel row of the top deck, so higher efficiency.

The comfortable room between the decks is a strong health & safety feature resulting in more safe and fast panel replacement. This feature is unique to Metso in horizontal elliptical motion screens on the markets.


  • Fully configurable with options to match the most demanding applications
  • Maximal uptime
  • High health and safety standard
  • High accuracy screening
  • Easy installation

Process overview

Metso ES Series horizontal screens are commonly utilized to produce end-product fractions. In addition, they are also the best performers for waste screening and for all other difficult applications. For instance, when feed is made of flaky particles (pegging challenge) or being sticky (clogging challenge).

Metso ES Series horizontal screens are also the most recommended screens for wet process, including washing or rinsing purpose.


How it works

The two unbalanced shaft lines rotate in opposite directions to generate a high-energy elliptical motion. This deceptively gearless solution is more efficient than conventional horizontal screens with linear motion, and more reliable than other elliptical motion screens. No mechanical timing device, no gears, no timing belt and no oil leakage trouble.

Each shaft line is made of Metso’s unique Modular Vibrators (MV) being flange mounted to the side walls and synchronized by a cardan shaft. Each MV modular vibrator includes two bearings providing very long bearing life. To facilitate the servicing Metso offers Exchange Program for MV vibrators.
The side walls and the cross members are weld free to accommodate the fatigue stress.

For premium wear protection, the integrated feedbox and the discharge spouts are fitted with replaceable liners as standard. Optional cross member protection is also available to provide maximal uptime.

Modular screening panels (option) are key elements in achieving screening performance fast in abrasive applications, and to lower the operational costs.
The Metso screening panels are a perfect fit with the Metso ES Series horizontal screens, and when used, Metso commits to meet the specification of the end products and the panel lifetime.
