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

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.
