In response to customer requests for sustainable and environmentally-friendly screening media solutions, and in line with our own sustainability program, we have taken the acclaimed Metso Trellex LS rubber modular screening media systems and successfully replaced the traditional steel reinforcement with an environmentally-friendly composite material. This makes it possible to effectively recycle our customers’ screening media. A unique solution.
In the past, screening media modules which were no longer suitable for production were treated as waste and could not be recycled. Metso has introduced a new future and a sustainable solution.
In addition to providing environmentally-friendly screening media panels, Metso will implement a unique program to provide its customers with a suitable range of recycling services.
The Metso Trellex LS-Eco offers a wide range of health, safety and environmental benefits. Each screening media panel is up to 40% lighter than standard steel reinforced Trellex LS panels. This makes handling easier and the working environment safer. Lighter panels also help to reduce the overall stress on the entire screening installation. Compared to steel-reinforced panels, the composite-reinforced panels of the Metso Trellex LS-Eco are more flexible and will reduce the effects of pegging and blinding during screening operations. The Metso Trellex LS-Eco promises reduced downtime and increased productivity.
The Trellex 300LS and Trellex 305LS rubber and polyurethane panels are already acclaimed worldwide as being among the most versatile modular screening media solutions. They can be attached to most screening media systems and handle all types of screening applications – fine and coarse, wet and dry. In the future, when Metso customers need new screening media panels for their existing system, they can choose Metso Trellex LS-Eco and be assured that their panels will be safely and effectively recycled.
Metso is happy to play its part in reducing industrial waste globally by introducing the first recyclable modular screening media to our existing and future customers.
Metso Trellex LS-Eco, 305×610, is scheduled to be available in selected markets in Q4, 2011. Other dimensions will be available in 2012.
