10’ x 24’ Triple Deck screen – 350 TPH
Wire Screen vs Rubber Screens
The top picture shows the 50mm aperture wire cloths on the second deck. The top deck uses 75mm aperture. Average wear life from wire was 2-3 weeks. The 2nd deck wire cloths were replaced with 25mm thick rubber screens. See picture below.
Wear life on the 2 feed end cloths increased to 3 months & the remaining cloths 6 months.
To improve wear life further 35mm thick cloths with round apertures were installed on the feed end. Wear life of 6 months or approximately 1,000,000 tonnes is expected.
