Flex-Mat® 3 Accelerates Stratification

Flex-Mat® 3’s independently vibrating wires accelerate material stratification, helping producers maximize their screening capacity and material throughput.

Flex-Mat 3 eliminates the cross wires with high wear spots common to woven wire, binding its wires with polyurethane strips. When material falls on the tightly stretched independent wires, the wires vibrate along the full length of the screen, directly through the strips, from hook to hook.

The vibration of Flex-Mat 3 wires vary from 6,000 to 10,000 cycles per minute, up to 13 times greater than the standard vibration of a shaker, which is around 800 cycles per minute. The higher frequency of vibration accelerates the natural stratification process of the deck bed for maximum throughput, with no carryover, resulting in a high-quality retained product.

We appreciate all those that came by, including a celebrity.

Parker Schnabel, star of Discovery Channel’s hit TV series Gold Rush came by a few times on his own accord. He really appreciated how Flex-Mat®3 Modular on the top deck and Tensioned on the second deck really helped him exceed his ounce goal for this past season. Before switching to Flex-Mat 3 about 2/3rds into the season, he doubted that he would even reach his goal.

With Spring finally on its way in North America, know that Flex-Mat 3 is proven to produce far more spec product in wet, sloppy material so you can screen earlier and with less downtime. 

Contact your local Major Wire Authorized Dealer today to learn more about Flex-Mat 3 increasing your in-spec production. 

Parker Schnabel Visits Major Wire’s CONEXPO-CON/AGG Booth

Parker Schnabel, star of Discovery Channel’s hit TV series Gold Rush, stopped by the Major Wire booth at CONEXPO-CON/AGG on three different days to visit with fellow Flex-Mat® 3 users and to pose for pictures.

Major Wire’s distinctive lime green Flex-Mat 3 screen media was installed during Episode #13 of the show. In this episode, Parker Schnabel replaced polyurethane with Flex-Mat 3 Modular. He also compared the two types of screen media side-by-side and discussed the huge throughput difference.

“We are very pleased that Parker Schnabel was able to stop by the Major Wire booth and that our line of self-cleaning screen media could play a small part in making his season a success,” said Jean Leblond, president of Major Wire.
