Responding to industry demand for a detailed, yet easy to use screening resource, W.S. Tyler announces the release of its on-the-job reference, The Rock Book. Packed with the newest technologies, definitions, general screening information and specification tables, the 236-page manual helps users in mining, mineral processing and quarrying to improve efficiency and uncover hidden profits.

The Rock Book is part of our ongoing effort to be a more valuable partner to our customers, and to provide useful information to anyone engaged in the mining, aggregate and industrial mineral industries,” W.S. Tyler President, Florian Festge said. “We were inspired to create this new book because, decades after it was introduced, we still receive phone calls and emails asking for our classic reference manual, The Tyler Catalog 74. The Rock Book raises the bar and is packed with information to help the reader make effective decisions. It just makes sense to have The Rock Book at your mine or quarry.”

From detailed information about the various wire meshes used in screening to open area calculations and the most advanced technologies used in processing today, The Rock Book is an effective resource and training tool for all mines and quarries. This encyclopedia of screening information can educate novice employees on the basics of screening, while at the same time helping a skilled technician or engineer identify the required screen media and vibrating screen components and accessories for specific application challenges.

The Rock Book includes full-color images, detailed 3-D schematic drawings and specific descriptions throughout its five sections:

  1. Screens
  2. Components
  3. Equipment
  4. Services
  5. Resources

The Screens, Components and Equipment sections of The Rock Book offer effective technologies to increase product quality and plant efficiency. With this information in hand, processing plants will be able to better customize the blend of screen media, processing equipment, components and accessories.

The Services and Resources sections address vibration analysis, installation and maintenance, aggregate specifications, wire alloy information and types of crimps and openings. The resources section also contains a handy reference area with a comprehensive guide to screening basics and a glossary of terms.

The Rock Book is free of charge and can be obtained by calling The Rock Book hotline at 1-855-WSTYLER (1-855-978-9537) or through the company’s website at www.wstyler.ca.


Filled with the newest technologies, definitions, general screening information and specification tables, this manual is ideal for users in mining, mineral processing and quarrying to improve efficiency and uncover hidden profits.
