Major Wire says its new LFM Harp Wire helps aggregate operations increase throughput over standard harp or piano wire while reducing downtime caused by worn wire cloth. The new wire is manufactured with straight wires firmly molded into polyurethane strips that hold the wires in place at the crown bar, eliminating steel-on-steel wear. The polyurethane strips are said to keep the wires equally tensioned, creating better wire vibration, reducing blinding, and increasing production of a cleaner aggregate. The company says its new wire handles high-impact loads better and lasts up to twice as long as conventional harp and piano wire.
