Metso Minerals are pleased to announce they have developed a fully recyclable modular screening media; Metso Trellex LS-Eco.
Developed in response to customer requests for sustainable and environmentally friendly screening equipment, Metso Trellex LS-Eco is baed on the existing Metso Trellex LS rubber modular screening media system with the successful replacement of the traditional steel reinforcement with an environmentally friendly composite material.
This replacement makes it possible to effectively recycle customers screening media, instead of treating it as waste, which has been standard practice in the past.
In addition to providing environmentally friendly recyclable screening media panels, Metso will implement a unique program to provide customers with a suitable range of recycling services.
The Metso Trellex LS-Eco recyclable screening media also offers a wide range of health, safety and environmental benefits. Each screening media panel is up to 40% lighter than standard steel reinforced Trellex LS panels, which makes handling easier, and the working environment safer. Furthermore, lighter panels help to reduce the overall stress on the entire screening installation.
Compared to steel reinforced panels, the composite reinforced panels of the Metso Trellex LS-Eco recyclable screening media are more flexible and will reduce the effects of pegging and blinding during screening operations. The Metso Trellex LS-Eco also promises reduced downtime and increased productivity.
Already acclaimed worldwide as being versatile modular screening media solutions, Trellex 300LS and Trellex 305LS rubber and polyurethane panels can be attached to most screening media systems and handle all types of screening applications, fine and coarse, wet and dry.
In the future, when Metso customers need new screening media panels for their existing system, they will be able to choose Metso Trellex LS-Eco recyclable screening media and be assured that their panels will be safely and effectively recycled.
