Haver & Boecker, a leading equipment manufacturer and solutions provider in aggregates and mining applications, offers its Tyler brand of hooked engineered screen media as a solution to the problem of expensive deck conversions. Tensioned screen media can be used on a cambered deck, eliminating the need for a deck conversion when switching from woven wire to polyurethane screen media. The media includes products such as Ty-Max and Ty-Wire.
Hooked screen media allows operations to easily switch from woven wire to modular polyurethane products without the expense of a deck conversion. Retrofitting a machine from a cambered deck to a flat deck can cost as much as $15,000 per deck. Tyler’s tensioned screen media is used on a cambered deck to eliminate the need for that conversion. This also allows operators to test the media on a vibrating screen with no additional cost or commitment.
Another benefit is that Ty-Max and Ty-Wire can be blended with woven wire or self-cleaning screens on cambered decks. In many applications, operators are looking for more wear life on the feed end of the screen. This can be accomplished by installing a section of Ty-Max at the feed end. Ty-Wire can be used in the middle of the deck, for example, where basic screening takes place to give operators the ideal combination of wear life and open area. Using woven wire or self-cleaning screens at the discharge end will provide maximum open area at the end of the deck.
The polyurethane screen media is manufactured out of Tyrethane, Haver & Boecker’s signature blend of polyurethane. It’s made in the only facility in North America that blends its own material, which is critical for quality control. Chemists developed Tyrethane to offer the best combination of open area and wear life for both wet and dry applications.
Tyrethane is poured open cast, resulting in 1.5 to 2 times longer wear life than injection-molded products sold at comparable prices. In addition, open cast polyurethane permanently hardens when cured to maintain its chemical properties, so it resists wear and tear. Injection-molded screens can soften when the temperature rises during screening, resulting in shorter wear life.
Haver & Boecker manufactures a variety of Tyrethane screen media options to suit different operations’ applications, taking into consideration top sizes and opening requirements. Operators looking for high durability and strength choose Ty-Max, which Haver & Boecker reinforces with an internal wire grid as thick as 3/8 inch. Ty-Wire combines woven wire with an engineered composite to achieve open area closer to wire cloth but with four to six times longer wear life. Ty-Wire weighs less than woven wire, making it safer to handle and easier to install.
Haver & Boecker also offers Ty-Deck modular panels, available in multiple configurations for flat deck setups. Ty-Deck’s lightweight design eases installation and sectional deck replacements
