Major Introduces FLEX-MAT Modular Plus Screen Media
Major, Candiac, Quebec, a global manufacturer of high-performance wire screen media, introduces its FLEX-MAT Modular PLUS screen media. This screen media offers a high open area, efficient stratification, no blinding or pegging, and new and improved wear life comparable to polyurethane screen media, according to the manufacturer.
The efficiency-enhancing characteristics of all FLEX-MAT screen media, including the modular PLUS series, are created by bonding OPTIMUMWIRE® with distinctive lime-green polyurethane strips rather than weaving them. This allows wires to vibrate independently from end to end under material contact. The high frequency of the wires—8,000 to 10,000 cycles per minute—adds to the vibration of the screen box to speed up material separation and passing. The increased screening action is designed to improve material throughput while virtually eliminating near-size pegging on the top decks and fine material blinding and clogging on the bottom decks.
The new PLUS series is available in a variety of patterns, including the D, S and T series. The D series features a standard square pattern, which is ideal for precise sizing. FLEX-MAT Modular PLUS screen media panels are available in either the patented OPTIMUMWIRE or 304 stainless steel wire. In addition to modular panels, MAJOR’s signature FLEX-MAT Modular PLUS media is available in tensioned sections for use on crown decks.
