||Severe blinding on the bottom decks of the customer's 7' by 16' screening operation has drastically reduced crushing and screening efficiency. Competitor's 1' by 2' screen media solution has 22% open area.
||Polydeck suggested running a side-by-side comparison with the existing set-up. Polydeck provided 1' by 2' Flexi rubber VR screen panels with 39% open area to run on 2 decks in identical operating conditions against the competitor's screen media on 2 other decks.
||Belt samples revealed the Polydeck solution ran 796 tph with no blinding while the competitor's ran 624 tph; increased efficiency reduced load on crusher liner life which was estimated to save over $8,500 per year per crusher. Overall circuit capacity was judged to be greatly increased using Polydeck screen media solution.
