GKM Vibrating Tumbler Screeners are a type of flat deck screener. These machines use higher acceleration to perform dry and wet screening operations.
Kemutec are very proud to showcase and supply the GKM screening range, who for many years have been a superb industry brand and our dedicated partner for this technology.
The design of these modular, multi-deck machines make them ideal for applications requiring simpler control screening, fractionating and de-dusting of dry, powdered and granular products
In general, Tumbler Screens provide high separation efficiency and consistent product quality in a variety of applications.
As well as screening dry powders and granular products, the GKM Vibrating Tumbler Screener makes wet screening possible, even with more demanding heavier products. This type of screening capability offers benefits for companies in a range of sectors including Food, Chemicals and Performance Materials (Plastics).
As part of the Kemutec offering, GKM Vibrating Tumbler Screeners are designed with meshes down to 20 microns and up to 3 decks, these machines are capable of delivering 4 fractions of material at feed rates of 10 kg/h up to 10 t/h.
Like all GKM Screeners, the Vibrating Tumblers deliver consistent quality products and high yield. They are easy to use, clean and maintain, as well as being built to last. These machines can also be manufactured to meet the strict requirements of FDA and GMP.
A GKM Vibrating Tumbler Screener is used for many wet and dry screening applications including:
Kemutec offer GKM Vibrating Tumbler Screeners for customers requiring robust, long-lasting and multi-functional operation. These screens are easy to use and maintain; making them very operator friendly.
When you need to achieve a consistent quality product, our team at Kemutec supply this solution for separating dry and wet products, in up to 4 fractions simultaneously.

The GKM Vibrating Tumbler Screener uses vibration technology to create precise 3D elliptical movement.
The Vibrating Tumbler Screener is driven by a vibration motor attached directly to the center below the screen body. Precisely adjusted springs within the machine allow dislocation and enable the screen body to vibrate freely and three-dimensionally to the defined and consistent requirements for the specific product.
The ability to adjust the retention time of the product on the screens is an important aspect and benefit of all Tumbler Screeners. Changes to the retention time are achieved in Vibrating Tumbler Screeners by altering the centrifugal force of the vibration motor and changing the offset angle between the upper and lower flyweight.
The screen frames are equipped either with glued in mesh cloth or GKM’s unique twin-clamp rings, making it easy and quick to re-mesh on-site, without the need for any special tools or experience.
