Crown Bar Adaptors transform modular screen

World Coal,

Major Wire Industries Limited has introduced its new Crown Bar Adaptors for modular decks, which allows producers to convert their flat screen decks to a crowned deck on both pin- and grooved-type screen decks. This latest technology will allow producers to choose the best screen media for the job without being limited by the screen deck.

Major Wire developed the Crown Bar Adaptors to cater for producers with flat screen decks that were previously limited to solely using modular type screen media, but who wanted to use Major Wire’s Flex-Mat® 3 Tensioned High-Performance Screen Media. With the new technology, producers can expect to increase open area up to 100% or more by converting modular decks to a crowned tensioned deck of Flex-Mat 3.

The Flex-Mat 3 panels have an increased open area size, providing up to 50% more screen capacity than polyurethane and rubber panels. The technology uses independently vibrating wires that increase product throughput by up to 40% over polyurethane and rubber panels by increasing open area and eliminating blinding, pegging and clogging. Flex-Mat 3 provides benefits on every screen box deck. These include:

  • Eliminating near-size pegging on top decks
  • Producing cleaner retained product through the middle decks
  • Preventing fine material blinding on bottom decks.

Major Wire Industries Limited designs, manufactures and markets screening solutions and stainless steel woven wire cloth for the quarry, mining, recycling and industrial markets.
