Industrial textiles are commonly used in screening equipment, which are devices that are used to separate materials into different sizes or grades. These textiles are used in a wide range of industries, such as mining, construction, and recycling, and can be made from a variety of natural and synthetic fibers. One of the most common forms of screening equipment that uses industrial textiles is the vibrating screen. These screens use a woven or perforated industrial textile to separate materials based on size. The industrial textile is stretched over a frame and made to vibrate, causing the particles to move and pass through the openings in the textile, separating them by size. Industrial textiles are also used in non-vibrating screens, such as trommels and static screens. Trommels are cylindrical screens that rotate, using the industrial textile to separate materials by size as they pass through. Static screens are typically used in the recycling industry and use industrial textiles to separate materials by size or grade as they fall down the screen. In addition, industrial textiles are also used in filter press, the equipment that separate liquids from solids in a slurry by passing the slurry through a filter cloth. These filter cloths can be made from synthetic fibers such as polypropylene and polyester, known for its chemical resistance, or natural fibers like cotton, known for its absorbency. Overall, industrial textiles are an essential component of screening equipment, helping to separate materials into different sizes and grades efficiently and effectively. They can be made from a variety of fibers and treated with special coatings and finishes to suit specific applications, thus contributing to the industries in which they are used to operate with high productivity and lower environmental impacts.
