Haver & Boecker, a leading equipment manufacturer and solutions provider in mining and aggregates applications, offers Ty-Dura rubber screen media for large tonnages, large top sizes and abrasive material. It works well with crushed dry aggregates and high tonnage wet applications, such as scrubber or mill discharge. Ty-Dura is exceptionally durable and effective for noise reduction.
Haver & Boecker highlighted its Ty-Dura rubber screen media at the 2019 AGG1 Academy & Expo. “Our Ty-Dura screen media stands up well to the most unforgiving applications,” says Karen Thompson, Haver & Boecker Canada president. “With its high durability and longevity, producers will often be able to spend less time changing worn-out screen media and more time increasing their bottom line.”
Ty-Dura is manufactured in both side-tensioned and modular configurations, and is available in square, round, slotted or specialty opening designs that are all tapered to resist or eliminate pegging.
The side-tensioned hooked sections feature a custom formulated, compression-moulded natural rubber, supported by a stainless-steel cable substructure allowing for easy tensioning and preventing the stretching often experienced with other types of rubber screen media.
Ty-Dura’s hooked sections also eliminate the need for a deck conversion when switching from woven wire. Retrofitting a machine from a cambered deck to a flat deck can cost as much as US$15 000 per deck. The hooked sections can be used on the cambered deck to eliminate the need for that conversion. This also allows operators to test the media on a vibrating screen with no additional conversion cost or changes to the machine.
Ty-Dura modular panels are available in pin & sleeve, snap, groove and bolt-down options. It is a great option for top sizes larger than 6 inches and high tonnages. The rubber – up to 102 mm-thick – also resists abrasive material. Its openings are tapered to prevent blinding and pegging. Ty-Dura is also ideal for applications where sound is an issue, as the rubber dramatically reduces noise.
Because it handles impact so well, Ty-Dura is highly effective on a vibrating screen’s feed end or in the second position. Ty-Dura is ideal for all types of vibrating screens except for high-frequency fine screening units.
