Modular Screen Panels

Screenex pioneered the development of the modular polyurethane screen panels as we know it today. Our original design is now used globally.

We offer the widest range of aperture sizes and designs and can supply solutions to any screening application in the industry.

We injection mould to our panels using specially formulated polyurethanes and compounded synthetic and natural rubbers. Our whole range of screen panels can be injection moulded in both rubber and polyurethane as our tooling is almost totally interchangeable between the different manufacturing processes.

Materials

Polyurethane Panels

  • Various compounds in
    • Polyethers
    • Polyesters
  • Different hardnesses depending on application
  • Anti-bacteria
  • Excellent wear and impact resistance

Rubber Panels

  • Various compounds for different applications
  • Different hardnesses
  • Excellent wear and impact resistance
  • Excellent non-blinding properties
  • Resistant to material build-up on panels

Aperture Types

Standard Apertures

Slotted Aperture

Used widely in dewatering applications and for FerroSilicon and Magnetite recovery and in applications where elongated particles are acceptable.

Square Apertures

The most commonly used aperture in screening applications ensuring accurate cut points.

Continuous Slotted Apertures

High open area ensures efficiency in dewatering and media recovery applications. The special design of the apertures creates a ‘sucking’ effect making it the most efficient dewatering panel on the market.

Round

These apertures are primarily used in scalping applications where heavy duty panels are required.

Double Round

Similar to normal round apertures but with increased open area while maintaining strength and rigidity.

Non Blinding Apertures

VR

This panel outperforms all expectations and it has proven to be superior in performance to any other non-blinding design.

Slotted VR

Similar in performance and efficiency as the normal VR but with slotted apertures allowing for elongated particles to be screened.

VRE

The VRE has all the advantages of the VR and VRX but adds cut point accuracy identical to that of a normal square aperture panel. It has longer metallurgical life and surface features can be introduced to the panel.

VRX

The unique diagonal design of the VRX panel ensures that apertures remain square even when worn, thus keeping their profile longer. This results in more effective use of screening area, longer life and more precise screening.

VRA

The VRA is based on the very efficient and Very Reliable VR panel design. It features an angled aperture making it easier for ore particles to move through the apertures on an angled screen deck.

Jig Panels

We manufacture a full range of Jig panels for all applications in a variety of aperture sizes, shapes and designs.

Flexi

A unique Screenex product creating the ’liveliest’ surface area ever. Combined with a VR, VRX or VRE design results in the ultimate non-blinding panel.

Hybrid

We manufacture hybrid panels combining the benefits of modular screen panels with the much higher available open area of woven wire and wedge wire products. The hybrid panels are available in all our standard sizes ranging from 300mm, 305mm, 610 x 305mm and 750 x 300mm panels.

Woven Wire

Combining high open area with modularity and ease of maintenance.

Very fine mesh and heavier wire gauges are moulded onto the standard polyurethane base of a standard panel.

V Wire

Wedge wire of various steel grades and aperture types and sizes are available.

Designs

Panel Designs

We injection mould panels in the range as listed below.

200 square - Used mostly in scalping applications, the smaller panel size combined with large apertures results in improved open area. The panels are normally thicker to allow for heavy duty applications. It has to be used in conjunction with our specially designed support frame which will fit most vibrating screens.

300 square - For applications using metric vibrating screens.

305 square - Most popular size.

610 x 305 - A double 305 square panel allowing for more ‘fixings’ and securing the panel better on a worn frame. Increased open area due to fewer borders.

750 x 300 - A two and a half times bigger panel used in place of, or together with, 300 square panels. It has the same advantages of the 610 x 305 panel.

Surface Features

Carrier Bars - Increased life expectancy and efficiency by lifting large particles above apertures thereby reducing wear. Larger percentage screenable particles on surface going directly over apertures improves efficiency.

Flow Restrictors - Restricting the flow and speed of the particles thereby increasing the time spent on the screening surface improving efficiency.

Drainage Deflectors - Channels particles and fluids away from ‘dead’ areas to the actual screening surface and thereby improving efficiency.

L-Shapes - Improves screening efficiency and rinsing. L-shapes available in various heights ranging from 25 to 200mm.

Deflectors - Standard feature on our panels deflecting material from the borders to the screening surfaces.

Dividers - Placing dividers on the deck allows for more than one stream to be screened at the same time.

Special Designs

WD - The wedge shaped WD panel range caters specifically for dewatering and ferrosilicon (FeSi) recovery applications. Improved stratification and retention of material on the deck results in better drainage and optimized media recovery are just some of the advantages.

It will fit on any standard deck designed for 305 mm square panels.

It is available in a wide range of apertures designs and sizes and can be made in rubber and polyurethane.

Doubledex - Our unique Doubledex system will convert a single deck into a double deck with minimal production delay and minimal, if any, modification to existing chute arrangements.

Fastening Methods

Nipple and Pin - Reduced number of parts to be kept in stock as the nipples are part of the panel. We can manufacture panels with various fixing arrangements from 4 to 16 fixings per panel.

Pin and Sleeve - Ranges from 4 to 16 fixings per panel.

Polysnap - No pins or sleeves and other loose parts required and its ease of installation is unparalleled. No special tools required for installation or removal.
