Unified Screening & Crushing says its new SuperFlow screens are a hybrid of wire cloth and urethane support strips that allow each wire to vibrate independently to provide a harmonic frequency that reduces plugging and blinding. The company says recently completed field tests indicate that the screens can improve throughput performance by as much as 30 percent, and that the operations participating in the study experienced fewer shutdowns for cleaning. The screens are said to perform well when screening dry material, but are especially productive when handling wet or sticky material. The screens are available in three styles — W-style (alternating straight and crimped wires), D-style (diamond-shaped), and H-style (herringbone weave).
