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.
