Ty-Wire Hybrid-screen sections
Screening of abrasive materials such as stone, gravel or crushed rock causes high wear on traditional wire cloth screen sections. Consequently, they have to be replaced more frequently, resulting in undesirable operating downtime. Polyurethane screen sections can be used as an alternative as they have a longer wear life, but their open area is smaller, resulting in loss of capacity. This necessitates the purchase of an additional screening machine in many cases.
One solution, all the benefits
With TY-WIRE hybrid screen sections, the advantages of wire cloth and polyurethane screen sections are combined. TY-WIRE is comprised of high-carbon woven wire encased with an engineered grid comprised of polyurethane composite. The result is a screen section which has a significantly larger open area than traditional polyurethane combined with four to six times longer wear life than woven wire. TY-WIRE is available with apertures of 3.15 mm to 41.50 mm and can be used for screening applications of up to 70°C. The conical apertures prevent near-sized particles from getting stuck, largely preventing pegging of the screen section.
Another advantage: The installation of TY-WIRE does not require modification of the screen deck, neither for modular screen panels nor for cambered decks with hooked sections. TY-WIRE screens with hook strips are tensioned in the same way as woven wire screen sections.
