Double-Weave woven wire from Montreal-based Major Wire Industries Limited is constructed of two, side-by-side, lighter-gauge wires to outperform heavy-gauge, single-strand woven wire and perforated punch plate in asphalt, concrete and demolition debris recycle applications. Impact from large chunks of asphalt and concrete material can cause screen breakage with even the heaviest single wire gauges. Woven with two smaller-diameter wires, Double-Weave screen media has lower wear points than larger, single-strand wire; one wire helps preserve the life of the other as it wears. The combined tensile strength of the two finer-gauge wires withstands up to three times greater impact providing up to 40 percent greater wear life than that of one heavy-gauge wire, making Double-Weave ideal for top decks on recycle screens. Compared to perforated punch plate, Double-Weave has far more open area, increases throughput up to 50 percent without costly screen deck alterations and costs up to 25 percent less.
Ideal for use in recycling applications, Flex-Mat 3 High-Performance, self-cleaning screen media technology is available in a tensioned version as an alternative to woven wire, and in a modular version designed to replace polyurethane and rubber modular screen panels.
Flex-Mat 3 high-performance, self-cleaning screen media is designed for use on all three screen decks of a screen box. Using Flex-Mat 3 on three decks will increase production of cleaner in-spec product and reduce costs, requiring only a change in screen cloth. Units have the breadth of wire diameters and opening sizes to work on all three decks – from 30 mesh up to four inches. On the top deck, because its wires vibrate independently, Flex-Mat 3 will eliminate pegging, and the need to shut down for cleaning or prematurely replacing the panels. On the middle deck, Flex-Mat 3 is designed to eliminate blinding, pegging and clogging. On the bottom deck, fines will not build up, eliminating blinding, and resulting in clean, properly sized material being produced.
Flex-Mat 3 high-performance, self-cleaning screen media is engineered to provide producers with increased throughput up to 40 percent over woven wire or polyurethane panels. Flex-Mat technology is a non-woven, self-cleaning wire screen media that can significantly increase aggregate production while it reduces downtime to free blinded or clogged screens.
