Gough Engineering has always recognised the importance of maintaining a Trial facility to help identify the correct equipment for your production needs. We have a range of process equipment supported by a larger selection of mesh frames or perforated plates (subject to availability of mesh rings sizes, charges may apply for specific non-standard meshes).

Get In Touch


The equipment available (depending on availability) includes:

  •  Gough Batch Sieve (GBS)
  •  Gough Vibrecon Separator (GVC)
  •  Gough Vibraflo Separator (GVF)
  •  Linear Vibratory Screens (GLVS 1 or 2 deck)
  •  Hopper and vibratory Feeder (GLVF)
  •  Selection of wire screen meshes
  •  Selection of Perforated Plates
  •  Selection of Hook Screen meshes for linear screens
  •  Selection of drop in or integrated decks for GVC

Gough can also provide gauss measurement and advise on magnet bars used for removing of ferrous metals. 



The choice of handling equipment for your production lines can depend on varying factors. Material particles and properties, material behaviour over different surface sieving/separating and handling designs, vibratory motion type, drive mechanism choices, general surface quality, Stainless Steel selection and applying design principles in e.g. meeting ATEX regulations – all play a part.

At Gough Engineering, with its own in-house design team and years of experience, we can provide expert application knowledge in designing and manufacturing the right solution for your material handling requirements.

Test & Trial Choice

As part of our continued support to industry, Gough can arrange in-house testing at our site in Staffordshire where you can meet our team and witness the tests for yourself. Or, we can perform the test and provide you the results and videos based on samples delivered directly to us.

Material Assessment and Trials



When dealing with customer/client materials at Gough Engineering please provide as much information as you can on the following:

  1. Full description the of material.
  2. Material composition if there is more then one element.
  3. Provide any COSHH Health & Safety Data Sheets.
  4. Provide any internal material data sheets you may have if COSHH sheets are not available.

This will help Gough to identify any hazardous material and remain vigilant on safety issues while conducting your material assessment or trials. Exposure limits especially are important and the requirement of any Health and Safety equipment.

Thank you for any assistance providing this information. 


Safety is everyone’s responsibility!

Material Assessment & Trials Requirements

  • Small samples can be sent to Gough Engineering for analysis and assessment without an actual trial. These can be delivered to Gough Engineering in small sample bags. For actual trials 25kg bags can be delivered.
  • If trial materials are sent to Gough Engineering please submit all relevant material safety data sheets with the material.
  • Certain materials require a full lab clean down and subject to clean-up costs
  • Holding materials for prolonged time periods may result in holding costs
