Major introduced a modular screen media that is designed to withstand screening conditions with the most abrasive materials, including granite and basalt.

Major says its new Flex-Mat Modular Plus screen media offers the benefits of Flex-Mat – high open area, efficient stratification, no blinding or pegging – and features a wear life that’s comparable to a polyurethane.

“We’re always looking at ways to help producers get the best end product,” says Bernard Betts, president of Major, whose company plans to highlight Flex-Mat Modular Plus at ConExpo-Con/Agg 2023. “What better way than to optimize the design of our efficient Flex-Mat product for even better performance. Flex-Mat Modular Plus is just that: a proven, reliable solution to achieve heightened screening performance and improve the bottom line.”

More on the rollout

According to Major, the efficiency-enhancing characteristics of all Flex-Mat screen media – including the Modular Plus series – are created by bonding OptimumWire with distinctive lime green polyurethane strips rather than weaving them. This allows wires to vibrate independently from end to end under material contact, Major says.

The high frequency of the wires – 8,000 to 10,000 cycles per minute – adds to the vibration of the screen box – 800 to 900 cycles per minute – to speed up material separation and passing. As Major describes, the increased screening action improves material throughput while virtually eliminating near-size pegging on the top decks and fine material blinding and clogging on the bottom decks, resulting in a lower cost of production per ton.

Like Major’s traditional Flex-Mat panels, the new Plus series is available in a variety of patterns. The D series features a standard square pattern that’s ideal for precise sizing. The S series maximizes open area, virtually eliminating blinding and reducing fine contamination. The T series enhances screening for particles below 0.059 in. and features small openings to minimize blinding.

The screen media is secured through either grooved, step or pin and leg panels, according to Major.
