Sharkskin is a unique screen media from Hoyt Wire Cloth combining the open area of woven wire cloth with the wear life of polyurethane. According to Hoyt, Sharkskin’s design makes it light, flexible and easy to install. It’s a cost-effective screening solution for a variety of difficult applications, the company adds. Hoyt says Sharkskin screens offer improved wear life, and they can be rolled and carried by one person. Other benefits are reduced near-size plugging and noise abatement. Sharkskin is ideal for smaller decks where open-area loss won’t allow for the use of modular screen media, the company notes.


Cast urethane products decrease downtime, maintenance

Rhino Hyde’s Rhino Grid cast urethane products aim to deliver superior wear properties across multiple screening lines. The products were tested in a number of applications, the company says, providing extended run time and reduced maintenance. Rhino Grid cast urethane has a higher capacity to resist rubbing or scraping during production, the company says, outlasting materials such as rubber, plastics and metals and making it an ideal solution for high-impact or repeated impingement applications. The products are designed to reduce downtime and take the pressure off maintenance crews by lasting seven to 10 times longer than alternative applications, Rhino Hyde adds. The products are available as side- or end-tension screens.

How customizing the feed can boost screening operations

Conn-Weld Industries says putting a customized feed system ahead of a vibrating screen will increase wear life and maximize screening efficiency. A feedbox with a fixed or curved sieve, installed with the proper screen media, will deliver benefits from a process standpoint, Conn-Weld adds, by removing some of the material before it gets to the vibrating screen – thus increasing throughput. Conn-Weld, for example, says pairing its 8-ft. x 16-ft. G-Master horizontal screen with a flat sieve unit is one way to put process solutions into action. conn-weld.com

Raising the bar for consistent quality

Unified Screening & Crushing completed recertification for ISO 9001:2015, a quality management system standard requiring organizations to meet their own requirements and those of customers and regulators. The International Organization for Standardization (ISO) is an independent, non-government organization that develops voluntary standards for industries and goods. According to Unified, its ISO certifications require comprehensive audits by the company’s internal team and validation by a third-party certifying body to ensure compliance with these standards. Says Unified COO Andrew Lentsch: “While the ISO certification does not define the quality of a product, it does help us achieve consistent results. In our industry, consistent quality is critical.”
