Polyurethane screening surfaces have been in use for many years and have proven to be generally economical due to the long wear life and low maintenance requirements.
The extended life is attributed to the SUPERIOR CUT, TEAR AND ABRASION RESISTANCE of polyurethane. The wear life is enhanced by the polymers flexibility, which returns some of the impact energy imparted by the vibrating media.
Noise pollution typical of wire screens and perforated plate is greatly reduced with the introduction of polyurethane screening surfaces.
Correctly applied Polyurethane screens can reduce or even eliminate plugging, pegging and blinding problems due to the tapered openings and resiliency of the material.
Corrosion and rust out are eliminated as Polyurethane is impervious to most elements found in any screening plant.
Aperture shapes are almost unlimited. While wire cloth is typically limited to squares and rectangles, polyurethane screen apertures can be molded to any shape which best serves the particular application.
