:: Sandvik WR Modular Screening Media - A New Modular Screening System for use on Non-Sandvik Screens
The stationary crushing and screening division of Sandvik Mining and Construction will unveil a new modular screening media product for aggregates processing at Bauma 2010. The patent-pending WR modular screening system has been designed for use on non-Sandvik screens. It is viewed as a truly customer-focused development that will produce tangible benefits for all companies involved in screening throughout the rock excavation and processing industries.
The Sandvik patent-pending WR modular screening media product features three dynamic attributes that are focused to maximize customerís profitability:
- Optimized screening accuracy - Fiber-reinforced rubber-screen membrane allows the use of thinner panels with less material between holes. Absence of blind fields in the direction of material flow reduces the carry-over and the amount of undersized particles in the final product.
- Higher capacity - Anti-blinding screen membrane with cascade effect features an open area larger than other modular systems, resulting in higher throughput capacity.
- Minimized downtime - Fiber-reinforced rubber-screen membrane, with built-in cross-beam protection, results in long wear life. This benefit, combined with a small number of easily replaceable parts, keeps downtime to a minimum.
Other associated gains from this exciting development in screening technology include:
- Open cross beams that help prevent the build-up of dirt in the screening media attachment area.
- Absence of steel reinforcement, making the system lighter than other modular systems, which in turn increases screen bearing life.
- A flat deck helps spread the material bed quickly and evenly across the screen deck.
- Polymer materials to reduce noise levels.
- Screen membrane that can be made of rubber or polyurethane, but always comes in one standard width.
- Side liners can be made of rubber, polyurethane or ceramics, depending on application.
The new development is certain to attract widespread attention and interest, and will undoubtedly produce real benefits for customers in the mineral extraction industry.
