Launching at AGG1 Aggregates Academy & Expo this March, Rubberdex Ultramax, is Polydeck’s latest innovation in high-performance, extreme open area synthetic modular media. Utilizing the company’s material science technologies, Polydeck says Ultramax pushes conventional norms by providing open area not seen before in synthetic media. Producers looking for a product that can match the open area of wire, is safer to use and easier to install can turn to Ultramax as an upgrade, Polydeck adds.

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, according to the company, 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 says. The products are available as side- or end-tension screens.

Self-cleaning panel designed to improve wear life

Buffalo Wire’s modular PFX/HT hybrid screening panel aims to address open area, heavy loading and throughput issues caused by all-synthetic screen systems. According to Buffalo Wire, this is achieved by embedding high-efficiency, self-cleaning screen technology into polyurethane frame systems. There is no deck modification required, and it is ideal for heavy-duty applications. The self-cleaning vibrating wires also utilize profile wire technology for maximum strength, heavier loading and extreme open area, Buffalo Wire says. The design allows for significantly improved wear life, the company adds, as the vibrating wires naturally absorb and dissipate energy more efficiently than traditional systems.

Polyurethane-coated screen offers production advantages

Armor screens offer the benefits of long wear life, high open area and reduced noise, according to Durex Products. Built from high-grade wire cloth with a molded coating of premium polyurethane, the technology combo creates screens that have a higher open area than conventional polyurethane screens and longer wear life than wire screen, Durex Products says. The Armor screen’s polyurethane covering is molded to provide the production advantages of relief-tapered openings that are wider at the bottom. The advanced design reduces plugging and increases throughput, the company adds.

Modular panels increase production capacity, throughput

The Flex-Mat modular screen media panels from Major are designed to deliver increased throughput by providing more open area than traditional panels. According to the company, Flex-Mat features up to 40 percent more screen capacity than traditional woven wire and up to 50 percent more than traditional polyurethane and rubber panels. The modular panels are available in three pattern options: the D, S and T series. The D series features a standard square pattern, which is ideal for precise sizing. The S series aims to maximize open area, virtually eliminate blinding and reduce fine contamination. The T series enhances screening for particles below 0.059 in. and features small openings to minimize blinding.
