first_imgMajor Wire Industries has introduced new Crown Bar Adaptors for modular screening decks which allow producers to convert their flat screen decks to a crowned deck on both pin and grooved-type screen decks. This innovative technology “will allow producers to choose the best screen media for the job without being limited by the screen deck” according to Major Wire.Major Wire says it developed its line of Crown Bar Adaptors to fill an expressed need for producers with flat screen decks that were limited to only using modular type screen media but wanted to use Major Wire’s Flex-Mat 3 Tensioned High-Performance Screen Media. Producers can expect to increase the open area up to 100% or more by converting modular decks to a crowned tensioned deck of Flex-Mat 3. Flex-Mat 3 panels have more open area, meaning that they can provide up to 50% more screen capacity than polyurethane and rubber panels.They employ independently vibrating wires that increase product throughput by up to 40% over polyurethane and rubber panels by increasing the open area and eliminating blinding, pegging and clogging. “Flex-Mat 3 provides benefits on every screen box deck: eliminating near-size pegging on top decks, producing cleaner retained product through the middle decks and preventing fine material blinding on bottom decks.”last_img
