The harsh demands of the quarry and aggregate industry can cause serious damage to vibratory screens. To prevent abusive material and conditions from hindering the productivity of quarry operations, ASGCO has expanded the use of its cast urethane products to include screen wear parts.
Rubber compounds that are compounded to 90 or 95A durometer have compromised physical properties. Just the opposite is true of polyurethanes that maintain their properties and superior performance characteristics regardless of hardness. All of ASGCO's urethane wear products are cast from the company's exclusive ASGCO-thane™ polyurethane compound with a durometer of 80/85 and include a steel backing plate for extra added support.
ASGCO's screen wear production include screen feed box liners and screen side wear liners.
Screen feed box liners are patterned to directly replacement the current liner configuration or, depending on the wear characteristics, can also change the layout for maximum wear life. Liners have the ability to have various sized and shaped ceramics inserted to increase the longevity of the liner.
Screen side wear liners are boxed in with mild steel or hard plate to prevent premature edge wear or damage. Bolt patterns, sizes and thicknesses are fully customisable to increase the wear life for your operation. In-house engineering allows for an ease in duplicity.
Features and benefits of the new wear products include the following:
- Abrasion resistant: cast urethane screen wear products are moulded using ASGCO's high-grade polyurethane compounds that last longer and offer superior abrasion, cut and tear resistance when compared to rubber.
- Higher load-bearing capacity: better compression set and superior tolerance to greases, oils, oxygen and ozone.
- Biodegradable: man-made urethane can be easily formulated to outlast rubber and stand up to sunlight and harsh outdoor environments.
- Multiple Steel Options – fully boxed with steel, or only a steel back allows for full custom options. Can be stud or plug welded.
