Mix it Up!
With increased infrastructure development, aggregates producers have an opportunity for big business — that is, if they can keep up and maintain maximum outputs. That’s why it’s important to use the most productive tools for screening and sizing aggregates. Rather than sticking to woven wire or polyurethane media throughout the screen deck, some operation managers find they can reduce wear, lessen screen change-outs, and increase open area by choosing strategic combinations of screen media. 

The difference between using one type of screen media versus the optimal blend of screen media can add up to thousands of dollars in downtime and expense in a year. Improving screening productivity starts with analyzing the operation, consulting with an expert, learning proper installation and maintenance techniques, and trying new solutions.
