Armadex – bolt-down rubber screen sections from Polydeck – represents a new top-deck extreme-duty scalping solution, according to the company. This custom rubber-screening product uses Binary Injection Molding (BIM) technology, a proprietary Polydeck manufacturing method that produces more than 10 times the pressure normally used to produce compression-molded rubber.
This process along with its premium blend of natural gum rubbers and high-strength low-alloy (HSLA) steel plate backing produces a product of unprecedented strength and uniformity in its structure and composition from top to bottom and side to side. This means you get a longer wearing screen section with the lowest dollars-per-ton investment.
The BIM process also allows customization options not available in traditional bolt-down screen media.
Armadex screen sections can be bolted to an existing deck frame or can be installed using the company’s PipeTop II frame to provide the ultimate in durability and flexibility. Best suited for scalping, finish sizing and trommel applications, Armadex custom screen sections standard turnaround is the quickest in the industry, according to the company. All Armadex panels are backed by Polydeck service and support, and provide long wear life and short lead-time, Polydeck said.
