New Vector Slot Technology (VST) Panel Released

Posted by Matt Donovan on Wed, Mar 30, 2016

SPARTANBURG, SC - MARCH 30, 2016 - Polydeck Screen Corporation is pleased to announce the release of its Vector Slot Technology (VST) screen panel design.

This patented design incorporates slots at opposing 45 degree angles creating a zigzag flow which increases retention time, therefore providing increased drain rates per square foot. The slots’ orientation in relation to the machine’s motion helps prevent particles from being driven into the apertures, reducing pegging and blinding problems often associated with fine sizing.

Vector Slot Technology enables a customer to screen/dewater at a higher efficiency than traditional slotted screen or continuous slot screen panels. Field testing has demonstrated that the VST also has a much lower tendency to plug with near sized particles providing higher open area throughout the life cycle of the screen panel.

Available in 0.65mm and 1mm apertures and coming soon in additional aperture sizes.

Learn more at the Coal Prep trade show, booth 1118 - April 26-27 in Louisville, KY.

SPARTANBURG, S.C. – OCT, 22, 2012 – Discovery Channel’s hit reality TV Series, “Gold Rush,” which opens its third season on October 26th at 9:00 PM EST, will feature screen media manufactured by Polydeck Screen Corporation of Spartanburg, South Carolina. Placed on a double-deck vibrating screen, the Polydeck polyurethane media allows “the Hoffman Crew” to more effectively size and separate gold-bearing rock at their gold mining claim located in the Klondike region of the Yukon in Northwest Canada. “Gold Rush” is described as a show that “rekindles the spirit of the American dream,” as it documents the adventures that the crew faces when tackling the challenges of a full-scale mining operation.

According to Crew Boss Todd Hoffman, and Rock-Moving Expert Dave Turin, the Polydeck media was chosen for its wear life and reliability. “The top deck takes a lot of abuse from jagged bedrock,” says Hoffman. “This media wears better than steel. We’ve put more than 100,000 yards across it and we expect it to last another season,” says Turin, who is featured along with Hoffman on a video that can be viewed on the Polydeck website at

“Our employees and their families love to watch ‘Gold Rush,’ and we are thrilled to have Polydeck products chosen for this educational and entertaining program,” says Polydeck President Peter Freissle, who had the opportunity to meet with the Hoffman Crew at the recent MINExpo show in Las Vegas. Hoffman sought out Freissle at the show to discuss the use of Polydeck media on portable trommel screens needed for possible future mining applications.

Polydeck Screen Corporation is a leading provider of polyurethane, rubber and specialty screening solutions for the aggregate, coal, and mining industries. For more information, contact Matt Donovan, Polydeck Marketing Manager for Coal and Mining, at 864-579-4594; or visit the Polydeck website at

Polydeck Expands Flexi Product Line

Posted by Matt Donovan on Mon, Jan 04, 2010

Contact:  Dennis Zeiger

Now Available In 0.5mm Opening Size

Spartanburg, SC, USA — Polydeck has further expanded its Flexi line of rubber screen panels and now offers them in slotted opening sizes from 0.5mm to 50mm, and square openings from 3mm to 50mm. The Flexi screen panel is made of a proprietary, low durometer rubber compound that provides superior flexibility, making it an ideal solution in most applications that deal with the effects of moisture on small particles and fines. Applications where high moisture, either from humidity or ambient water from rain, overspray or dust suppression, causes material to clump together and blind over screen surfaces, are especially suited for the 1' by 2' Flexi screen panel. The motion of the screen deck causes the surface of the Flexi panel to vibrate, which creates a trampoline effect, resulting in minimal, if any, material sticking to the surface. When coupled with Polydeck's Maxi high open area screen panel design, blinding is virtually eliminated. As an added benefit, the Flexi screen panel operates at a much quieter level than competitive steel products. Polydeck is a leading manufacturer of modular screen media and systems to the aggregate, mining and coal industries.
