Fri January 14, 2011 - National Edition
Construction Equipment Guide

Montreal-based Major Wire Industries Limited will display its multiple screen media solutions in booth 7433 in the Central Hall. The company offers many screen media options to choose from so customers can fine tune each screen’s production, resulting in the most tons per hour of in-spec products for the least cost possible.

Visitors will see Flex-Mat 3 High-Performance, Self-Cleaning screen media in Tensioned and Modular versions, OptimumWire Woven Wire and LFM Harp Wire, Double-Weave Woven Wire and Flex-Mat 3 Double-Wire for impact resistance and HyperSlot for warm and hot mix asphalt and other sticky material applications.

Major Wire’s 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. 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, and independently vibrating wires increase product throughput by up to 40 percent over traditional woven wire or polyurethane panels by increasing open area and eliminating blinding, pegging and clogging.

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, according to Major Wire. Major Wire also will be showcasing the following:

• LFM Harp Wire lasts up to twice as long as traditional harp/piano wire because it is manufactured with the individual wires firmly molded in polyurethane strips, eliminating steel-on-steel wear.

• Double-Weave Woven Wire is constructed of two side-by-side, lighter-gauge woven wires and withstands up to four times more impact force than heavier single-strand woven wire.

• HyperSlot has an alternating crimped and straight wire design that helps increase throughput by causing the material to slow down and tumble over the screen cloth.

• Flex-Mat 3 Double-Wire combines a side-by-side wire design with Flex-Mat technology to increase screen capacity and throughput when screening high-impact, heavy and abrasive material.
