Montreal-based Major Wire Industries Limited has named Westate Machinery Company as its new screen media authorized dealer in Montana, eastern Idaho and parts of Wyoming.

The dealership offers all of Major Wire’s screen media solutions, including the Flex-Mat 3 self-cleaning screen media in tensioned and modular versions and optimumwire woven wire. Westate has worked directly with aggregate and mining customers for more than 60 years, providing screen media and other crushing, screening and replacement part solutions.

The dealership has built a reputation for supplying screen media with very short lead times. This is made possible because Westate keeps track of and stocks the screen media wire diameters and opening sizes its customers regularly use, according to the company.

“Westate is an ideal fit for Major Wire’s product line because they understand how to prove the value of advanced screen media technology to their customers,” said Jean Leblond, Major Wire president. “Flex-Mat 3 tensioned and modular helps producers achieve higher throughput, increase screen capacity and production and eliminate common blinding and pegging problems. Combine that with Westate’s commitment to serve its customers with high-quality solutions, and we have a very good team.”

Major Wire’s advanced Flex-Mat 3 high-performance, self-cleaning screen media technology is available in a tensioned version as an alternative to traditional woven wire and a modular version designed to replace polyurethane and rubber modular screen panels. Independently vibrating wires increase product throughput by up to 40 percent over traditional woven wire or polyurethane panels by increasing screening action and open area and eliminating blinding, pegging and clogging. Flex-Mat 3 panels provide up to 30 percent more screen capacity than woven wire and up to 50 percent more screen capacity than polyurethane and rubber panels, according to the manufacturer.

Major Wire’s optimumwire woven wire has a unique chemical makeup that provides up to 40 percent longer wear life when compared to traditional woven wire of the same diameter. Delivering a combination of ductility, hardness and tensile strength, OptimumWire is less susceptible to breaking in high-impact conditions and with highly abrasive materials, so it lasts longer and minimizes labor, maintenance and lost production costs.

“Our 60 years of screen media experience has taught us that a customer-driven approach is beneficial to both parties,” commented Josh Reno, Westate sales manager. “We try to be your partner in screening, unlike a lot of typical hands-off dealerships. We can identify your screen media options quickly over the phone or make a personal visit to determine a screening solution for you.”
