## Principles Of Screening And Sizing

Basic formula for calculating screen area (per deck) • u: required screening area (sq.ft.) • a: nominal capacity for separation • b: % oversize (.33 – 1.21) • c: % halfsize (.40 – 2.40) • d: deck location (.80 – 1.0) screening area = u / (a x b x c x d x e x f x g x h x j) • e: wet screening (1.0 – 1.25).
