Midwestern Industries unveils screen panel series

By |  June 4, 2020

Midwestern Industries introduced their new Klear-Screen series panels at ConExpo/ConAgg in March. 

The series (Styles: S, M and W) design features spaced wire cloth urethane strips that essentially operate as live moving wires, aimed to create more throughput to dislodge materials, according to the company. 

Midwestern says the resulting near-size particles won’t blind the screens. The wire cloth clear screen’s urethane strip designs are spaced across the panels and the wire flexes so it won’t fall apart, resulting in less screen changes, according to Midwestern. 

Made to fit most applications and rectangular vibrating machines, each series’ panel is available in openings ranging from 1/16- to 1-in., and in a variety of wire sizes. 

The Klear-Screen design configuration increases screening efficiency, extends screen life and produces a consistent product, aimed to decrease costs per ton, according to the company.

“S” style

The “S” style is the most common weave. Midwestern’s Klear-Screen “S”-style screen panels are ideal for applications with a high percentage of near-sized particles that often cause blinding in traditional woven mesh screens, according to the company.

This style of screen has a square opening and is measured the same as woven wire openings.

“M” style 

Midwestern’s Klear-Screen “M”-style screen panels are designed for applications with high impact and heavier loading. The company says this style is also useful for smaller openings for fine material.

The “M”-style screens have triangle opening, obtained by alternating crimped and straight wires. The crimped and straight wires vibrate at different frequencies, which practically eliminates blinding and optimizes throughput, according to Midwestern. 

“W” style 

Midwestern’s Klear-Screen “W”-style screen panels are designed for applications with a high percentage of fine material.

It offers the largest percentage of open area in the Klear-Screen lineup. It utilizes a “W”-shaped opening with all wires parallel to each other.

“The launch of our Klear-Screen panel series unique designs overcome the age-old issue of pegging/blinding, which prevents fine material from passing through,” says H.J. Painter, president of manufacturing and sales,  “Screening efficiency is key. Klear-Screen consistently achieves that goal.”

The wire product series will be available to order in late summer 2020.
