Haver & Boecker's Ty-Max hooked screen media is ideal for challenging screening jobs
Ty-Max screen media from Haver & Boecker is said to maximise uptime on challenging wet or dry screening applications. Ty-Max is poured using open cast technology and permanently hardens when cured to maintain its chemical properties, enabling it to resist wear and tear. The polyurethane also wears exponentially longer than wire cloth and handles direct feed better, maximising productivity by reducing change-outs. Additionally, Ty-Max features an internal wire grid as thick as 1cm to reinforce the screen.
In addition to durability and efficiency, Ty- Max, which was showcased by Haver & Boecker (H&B) at this year’s AGG1 exhibition in Nashville, Tennessee, is designed to save on conversion and maintenance costs. Tensionable hooks come standard with Ty-Max screen sections, eliminating the hassle of deck conversions potentially costing thousands of US dollars or euros.
Typically, a switch from a woven wire cloth, which requires a cambered deck, to a polyurethane modular product is said by H&B to require a deck conversion costing anywhere from US$5,000-$15,000. However, Ty-Max is hooked for a cambered deck to eliminate the need for a deck conversion, making it ideal and cost-effective for both the aggregate and mining industries. Ty-Max features square or slotted tapered openings to easily release near-sized material.
The top of each opening is narrower than the bottom, helping prevent pegging, meaning more profits through improved efficiency and less downtime.
H&B offers several Ty-Max options to fit a variety of applications. Standard Ty- Max easily manages most operations where bar rail spacing is up to 30cms, while Heavy-Duty Ty-Max handles higher impact applications and deep bed depths on vibrating screens with bar rail spacing up to 40cms.
The heavy-duty sections feature thicker wire reinforcements for withstanding large top sizes and heavy material. Finally, Dual Durometer Ty-Max features a top layer that is softer than the bottom to alleviate pegging. Also, the durable polyurethane easily absorbs the impact in wet or dry applications.
Optional features include high-temperature Ty-Max for applications requiring the screen to withstand high heat. There is also a specially formulated flex membrane that uses increased flexibility to force particles through openings, reducing blinding. H&B also offers screen media with blank sections to increase wearability in impact areas.
Ty-Max openings range from 0.25cm to 10cm. The screen media is compatible with any vibrating screen brand and can handle material top sizes up to 30cms, depending on particle type, drop height, rail spacing and feed method.
H&B’s certified technicians work directly with aggregates and mining operations to determine the best screen media for each individual business.
