Flex-Mat 3 high-performance, self-cleaning screen media from Montreal-based Major Wire Industries Limited helps operations increase production and end-product quality while reducing downtime. Flex-Mat 3’s independently vibrating wires increase product throughput by up to 40 percent over traditional woven wire or polyurethane panels by eliminating blinding, pegging and clogging, according to the manufacturer. In addition, it has up to 30 percent more open area than woven wire for up to 30 percent more material throughput.

Properly sized for the application and correctly installed, Flex-Mat 3 increases screening efficiency, resulting in more spec product on the ground for less cost. To date, Flex-Mat 3 is operating in more than 20,000 applications worldwide.

Wear life exceeds that of woven wire because there are no cross wires with high wear spots as there is with woven wire. Producers put more spec product on the ground due to less downtime for cleaning or replacing screens, providing a greater return on investment without the need to make major screen box changes.

Flex-Mat 3’s signature lime green polyurethane strips symbolize innovation, quality and increased efficiency, according to the manufacturer.

These strips align to the screen box’s crown bars and hold individual wires in place as they run from hook to hook. The wires vibrate independently to better separate material, virtually eliminating blinding, pegging or clogging — in many applications, including aggregate, basalt, sand and gravel, limestone, aglime, C&D recycle, coal, slag, granite, talc, asphalt, top soil, salt, mulch, industrial and green waste.

Flex-Mat 3 is available in a broad range of opening sizes — 30 mesh to 4 in. (10 cm) — and with a wide range of application-specific wire diameters, enabling Major Wire to fine tune each screen’s production to its greatest potential. Wire configurations include a diamond-shaped Flex-Mat “D” for most standard applications; wave-patterned Flex-Mat “S” for removal of fines; and triangular Flex-Mat “T” for heavy scalping or fine screening applications.
