Polydeck Screen Corp. has released its vector slot technology (VST) screen panel design.
This patented design incorporates slots at opposing 45° angles, creating a zigzag flow, which increases retention time, therefore providing increased drain rates per square foot.
The slots’ orientation in relation to the machine’s motion helps prevent particles from being driven into the apertures, reducing pegging and blinding problems often associated with fine sizing.
VST enables a customer to screen/dewater at a higher efficiency than traditional slotted screen or continuous slot screen panels. Field testing has demonstrated that the VST also has a much lower tendency to plug with near sized particles providing higher open area throughout the life cycle of the screen panel.
It is available in 0.65 mm and 1 mm apertures and is soon to released in additional aperture sizes.
