The Waterfall disc screen's design utilizes multiple roll screening decks that agitate and tumble the mat of material being screened as it falls from level to level. This tumbling movement is similar to a waterfall in that the mat is blended as it falls and fine particles that were in the upper portion now have a chance to be screened on the lower deck. As a result, high-volume screening capacity and effective product separation are achieved in a small package size.

These new UL-Listed control units are enclosed in rugged cast aluminum housings with LED indicator lights to alert the operator of either the presence or absence of material. Equipped with a new surface-mount PC board, the unit now allows for a maximum of 5000 ft of cable between the control unit and probe, permitting placement of the control unit in an easily accessible area. The control units are available in three different models for use in different environments.
