Montreal-based Major Wire Industries Limited now offers a full line of new 1 by 2-ft. (.3 by .6 m) Flex-Mat 3 self-cleaning polyurethane modular screen media panels. This new screen media size fits virtually any flat-surface screen deck, so screening operations using traditional 1 by 1-ft. (.3 by .3 m) and 1 by 2-ft. polyurethane and rubber panels can increase their existing screening capacity and in-spec material throughput up to 50 percent. Screening operations can choose between pin-, grooved-, snap- and step-types in opening sizes of 30 mesh, or 0.020 in., up to 1-1/2 in. (30 mesh, or 0.5 mm, to 38 mm). Flex-Mat 3 Modular 1 by 1-ft. panels were introduced in 2007.

Both Flex-Mat 3 Modular’s 1 by 1-ft. and 1 by 2-ft. panels provide up to 50 percent more screen open area than traditional rigid polyurethane and rubber panels. In addition, each new 1 by 2-ft. Flex-Mat 3 modular panel increases total screen media open area by 4.6 percent when compared to using two 1 by 1-ft. panels to cover the same screen deck area. No screen box changes are necessary to switch to the larger panels.

One key to Flex-Mat 3’s success in both tensioned and modular screen media is its independently vibrating wire technology. It increases product throughput over traditional rigid polyurethane and rubber panels by creating more screening action and eliminating blinding, pegging and clogging, according to the manufacturer.

Flex-Mat 3 Modular panels install easily using the same fastening systems as traditional polyurethane and rubber panels and are available in both stainless steel and Major Wire’s optimum wire. Wire diameters range from 0.025 to .37 in. (0.6 to 9.5 mm). Snap- and step-types are available in 1 by 2-ft. sizes, while the pin- and grooved-types are available in both 1 by 1-ft. and 1 by 2-ft. sizes.

Both tensioned and modular Flex-Mat 3 are ideal screening solutions in many applications, including aggregate, mining, sand and gravel, aglime, recycled concrete and asphalt, C&D recycle, coal, slag, talc, top soil, salt, mulch, industrial minerals and green waste.
