Screen Media Choices for Your Plant
From metal to polyurethane to rubber, aggregates plants don’t operate without these babies. Take a look at the various screen media choices on the market today.

Buffalo Wire Works says its new Clean PFX Series screening media is designed to continuously self-clean and provide customers with a powerful new combination of efficiency and performance. The screen media features formulated blue polyurethane strips over self-cleaning wires that the company says result in more screening productivity than many traditional high open-area screening media products. It is available in all self-cleaning weave styles.
Compass Wire Cloth’s custom-fabricated screens are available with hundreds of opening sizes and a variety of materials and crimp options. Wire types include high carbon, Tufflex, oil tempered, stainless steel, and more. The company says it supplies replacement screens for all OEMs and that its prices and turn-around time are competitive.
Tailored to fit
Durex Products Inc., a subsidiary of Linatex Corp. of America, says its screen media range of products can be customized to exact specifications and tailored to fit the application. The company says one-on-one consultations with customers help its engineers develop each design to exceed the performance of conventionally engineered products.
Manufactured from shaped wire
Hoyt Wire Cloth, a division of Lumsden Corp., introduced a new line of Hi-Rise screens manufactured from shaped, rather than round, wire. The company says the screens provide dramatic production increases along with improvements in wear life and load carrying ability. The screens are available with opening sizes from 1/4 to 2 inches in both Supertough oil-tempered and T-304 full-hard stainless steel.
Extended wear life
Jadco Mfg. says its custom-designed QT steel screen plates are made with QT-PLUS. According to the company, the plates provide efficient screening of aggregates with 10 times the wear life of conventional carbon steel screens. The plates come in a wide variety of sizes and shapes – slits, circles, rectangles, and hexagons – and require fewer change outs and less downtime. The company says the perforated screens won’t stretch, so no re-tensioning is required.
Increases throughput/decreases downtime
Major Wire Industries Ltd. says its Flex-Mat 3 high-performance, self-cleaning screen media helps operations increase production and end-product quality while reducing downtime. The screen’s independently vibrating wires eliminate blinding, pegging, and clogging, increasing product throughput by up to 40 percent, according to the company. Flex-Mat 3 is available in sizes ranging from 30 mesh to 4 inches, and has a wide range of application-specific wire diameters.
Easy panel changes
Metso says its new LS HiPer Flow screen panels are made of high-quality open-cast polyurethane and offer up to 30 percent more effective open area for increased throughput. The panels are lightweight and self supporting, making panel changes easier and improving screen bearing life. The company says the system easily attaches to existing competitive modular screen decks.
