What’s new in screen media:

Ty-Deck Ultra modular screen media from Haver & Boecker Niagara offers a solution for mining operations seeking more sustainable options in applications requiring production increases combined with high-abrasion resistance. Ty-Deck Ultra’s accelerated screening action cleans material without the use of water, the company says, reducing the need for tailing dams. With a 50 percent longer wear life than the original Ty-Deck, Haver & Boecker Niagara says the screen media panels are an ideal choice for screening ores, especially on a vibrating screen’s second deck. The product was developed based on customer feedback indicating a need for screen media that eliminates the use of water.

Buffalo Wire’s modular hybrid screening panel addresses the open area and throughput issues often encountered by producers running all polyurethane screen systems, the company says. This is achieved by embedding high-efficiency PFX self-cleaning screen technology into a polyurethane frame under high tension, with the tensioned feature allowing for increased support bar spacing to maximize the self-cleaning of the system. The increased support bar spacing also results in improved wear life, the company adds, as the vibrating wires naturally absorb and dissipate impact energy far more efficiently. The net result is increased wear life of the modular self-cleaning screen panel with high open area, greater throughput and increased efficiency, according to the company.

Hi-Rise, a shaped, woven wire screen from Hoyt Wire Cloth, is designed to provide more open area, allowing for improved flow and production, the company says. The use of shaped wire allows for 15 percent more screen openings compared to round wire, Hoyt says, increasing the amount of material falling through while increasing stratification. According to Hoyt, Hi-Rise also extends wear life with greater height and wear surface, as the shaped wire wears slower due to less surface area facing abrasion.

Polydeck expanded its product offering with the DMax line, which offers a breakthrough balance between open area, throughput and wear life, the company says. By combining its engineering design, material science and manufacturing technology, Polydeck says the DMax panels offer a high open area and improved production rates. Additionally, the DMax panels offer longer wear life and reduced noise levels, maintenance needs, and plugging and pegging issues, according to the company.

Durex Products’ line of modular urethane screen panels are for both wet and dry applications, as well as high-wear and abrasive applications, the company says. The polyurethane screen media increases wear life and elasticity and is easy to install, according to Durex Products. Furthermore, the panels feature tapered openings that are wider at the bottom, allowing for increased throughput and reduced plugging. The panels are offered in a range of options, including modular classic, modular 2k, modular knock-in bar, modular P-pin and modular P-pin maxi.

The Klear-Screen series panels from Midwestern Industries come in three styles: S, M and W. The design features spaced wire cloth urethane strips that essentially operate as live moving wires, aiming to create more throughput to dislodge materials. The resulting near-size particles won’t blind the screens, Midwestern says. 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 fewer screen changes. Each style panel is available in openings ranging from 1/16 to 1 in., and in a variety of wire sizes.
