MeshcapeTM Woven Wire Screen Cloths

FLSmidth have a wide range of woven


wire screen cloths - the most versatile
and common screening medium in the
mining and aggregate industry.
There are two types of woven wire
screen cloths based on manufacture
method:

Woven Wire Screen Cloth

Woven Wire Screens:


manufactured in Vibro OptimaxTM
wire, AISI 304, 316, BMS and GMS.

Woven Wire Mesh: manufactured


in AISI 304, 316 and BMS. AISI 304
is the normal for stock purposes to

MeshcapeTM Woven Wire Square Harp
Screen Cloths are made with stainless
steel, Vibro OptimaxTM and other exotic
materials and are manufactured using
round wires. The wires are woven,
forming a wave pattern with transverse
wire clusters holding the wires together
to provide excellent open area for peak
performance.
Square Harp has excellent open area and
is ideal for applications where pegging
and blinding of apertures are an issue.

Poly Ripple - Square and TRIA


Construction
MeshcapeTM Poly Ripple
Screen Panel
Poly Ripple (Polyurethane Vibro
OptimaxTM) panels are screens with
non-woven wires bound together
by polyurethane bands to reduce, or
even eliminate blinding and pegging
of screen surfaces.

Ideal For

Sand and gravel


industry
Mineral processing

Features and Benefits








The polyurethane bands are located


above the bucker bars creating a
flat surface in which the wires can
move independently. The flat, more
active screen surface reduces
build-up and increases throughput,
virtually eliminating the need to
shut down for screen cleaning.

Reduces or eliminates blinding


and pegging
Light weight screens
Polyurethane edge strips - no
sharp edges
Easier and safer to handle
Quickly installed
Manufactured with tension hooks
Field performance comparisons show
that on a wet day, Poly Ripple screens
will approach dry-day production of
conventional woven wire screens

Poly-Ripple is used in both civil


aggregate and mining screening
applications.
TIROTM Panels
FLSmidth TIRO panels are an
extension of the Poly Ripple panel in
which smaller panels are snapped
onto the support frame of the
screen.

TIRO Panel One

Poly Ripple Screen Panel

The flat more active screen surface


reduces build up and increases
throughput virtually eliminating the
need to shut down a screen for
cleaning.
TIRO is a safe, highly efficient, non
pegging, non blinding modular wire
screening system. Only worn panels
need to be replaced, they are lighter
and easier to handle than traditional
woven wire screens.

TIRO Panel Two

Screen panels are lighter and safer for
maintenance teams
Easy replacement - carried out with a
lever and mallet

Woven Wire Mesh

FLSmidth woven wire mesh is a


woven textile made of metallic
material flexible enough to be
woven into a variety of shapes and
sizes.
All materials are woven from wire as
thick as 1.6 diameter to 0.016
diameter - finer than a human hair.

Polyurethane Tension Mats

FLSmidth offer a comprehensive


range of Polyurethane Tension Mats.
Polyurethane exhibits the elasticity
of rubber and provides significant
advantages for applications when
used as a screening surface.

Polyurethane Tension Mat

The distinct advantage polyurethane


mats have over rubber is the
accuracy of the cast apertures and
resistance to sliding abrasion (longer
wearing). Polyurethane tension mats
allow for more precise screening
compared to the punched apertures
in rubber.

Wedge Wire Sieve Bend Screens

FLSmidth Wedge Wire Sieve


Bend Screens can be custom

applications in a wide range of
industries. Used to separate
solids from liquids, the curved
screen of a sieve bend provides
greater capacity than flat wedge
screens due to increased
gravitational forces on material
flowing against the curve. Sieve
Bend Screens are also known as
side hill screens, parabolic
screens, run down screens,
gravity screens and DSM screens.
At FLSmidth, our high quality

forces any particles smaller than the
slot size through the screen and any
particles larger than the slot size off
the end of the screen.

17

Continuous Slot Aperture Panel

The Continuous Slot Panel is one of


the highest open area, fine aperture
modular screen panel in the world
today, combining the advantages of
the long wear life characteristics of
polyurethane with the high open
area pattern of profile wire.

Continuous Slot Aperture Panels

Open area, or ratio of apertures to


total panel surface area, is of crucial
importance to screen users at a time
when plants are upgrading capacity
to increase profitability and
maximizing screen performance.
Open area for the continuous slot
pattern is about 40 to 50 percent
greater than standard polyurethane
modular panels of the same
aperture, which means greater
throughput through the same
screen or alternatively much better
quality of the screen products for
the same feed.

In fine apertures, deviation from


tolerance can lead to reduced recovery,
large losses of valuable screen product
and reduce plant profit.
Continuous slot panels have +/-10 m
standard deviation over the specified
aperture size.
Field tested over a period of two years in
a number of coal screens, continuous
slot panels can be used in any fine
aperture (less than 0.06 in. / 1.5 mm)
screening application. Continuous Slot is
compatible with horizontal or banana
type screen decks and is ideally suited for
dewatering, de-sliming fine classification
and drain/rinse heavy media recovery
applications.
The Continuous Slot Aperture design is
compatible with the PIPOTM Two and
PIPOTM Three modular systems.
