In the process of preparing cement or asphalt concrete – frequently used in ways, roads and access road construction, it is necessary to sort out poly-dispersed granular mixtures from bilge deposits or quarries. The mechanical sieving performs the separation of the granules on dimensional sorts (the size of graded grains can be 1... 70 mm) by means of machines called screeners. In the case of vibrating screeners, the working body (the sieve) presents a vibratory movement that ensures a high productivity of the screening machine and a very good quality of the final products obtained. The article studies the productivity of the vibrating screen used in mineral aggregates sorting process obtained by different methods. In this regard, a pragmatic simplified formula called Pragma is proposed, a formula which was tested with good results in situ experiments done on a bi-mass vibrating screen in a pilot station.
