Supply by Therese Dunphy, Editor-in-Chief BREAK YOUR BOTTLENECK Whether sizing dry and dusty or wet and sticky material, this assortment of screen media offers options to help boost production. Bolt-down screen sections Armadex, Polydeck's new bolt-down rubber screening solution, is designed for tough scalping applications. Its proprietary Binary Injection Molding (BIM) manufacturing process, along with a blend of gum rubbers and high-strength steel plate backing, produces both strength and uniformity. Armadex screen sections can be bolted to an existing deck frame or can be installed with Polydeck's PipeTop II frame. Armadex is available in screen sections up to 48 inches by 96 inches and up to 4 inches thick. The BIM process allows customization options not available in traditional bolt-down screen media. Polydeck | Expanded screen cloth sizes Major Wire Industries Ltd. expands its line of Flex-Mat 3 Self Cleaning Modular screen media panels to include 1- by 2-foot panels. According to the manufacturer, the screen media size fits virtually any flat-surface screen deck, allowing operations using traditional 1- by 1-foot panels to increase their screen capacity and in-spec material throughput by up to 50 percent. Operations can choose between pin-, grooved-, snap-, and step-type openings in sizes of 30 mesh up to 1.575 inches. Major Wire Industries Ltd. | Modular screening system The Metso LS system is the company's latest modular screening system, designed to fit virtually any screen and enable higher volume processing with minimal downtime. The LS system fits on most standard fittings and requires no modification of the existing modular deck frame. Several different upgrade strips are included in the LS range to fit the majority of screens available on the market; simply fit them to the rail and add Metso LS modules. The system has been designed for dependable operation, with lightweight rubber or polyurethane modules and easy snap-on connections. Metso | 28 Customizable decks Pro-Deck is W.S. Tyler's consultative approach to professionally blending multiple types of screen media on a single deck and fine-tuning vibrating screens. It is said to maximize classification efficiency while minimizing downtime and maintenance costs. By implementing a blended solution and applying the most effective screen media to each phase of the screening process, aggregate producers will achieve the optimal combination of open area and durability. To achieve this goal, a trained professional follows five steps: vibration analysis, machine inspection, screen media audit, screen media recommendation, and screen media implementation. The results are said to be better product quality and higher profits. W.S. Tyler | AGGREGATES MANAGER August 2013 SupplyLines_AGRM0813.indd 28 7/17/13 8:37 AM
