Screening

Forech provides a wide range of screening products to provide a clean and environmentally friendly environment. Our range of screen cloths, mats and other conveyor accessories prevent dust and other particulate pollution in conveyor installations. This allows the end user to ensure a cleaner, safer working environment with reduced maintenance costs.

Dust Screening

Dusty environment is an acknowledged health hazard. Large scale mining and mineral processing set ups generate immense amount of dust and noise, specially in the screening areas. While dust accelerates corrosion, it also makes maintenance and repair work time consuming and difficult.

To facilitate safe, healthy and noise- free work environment on the bulk material handling systems and in the crushing and screening areas, Forech offers an ozone friendly, ultra violet resistant, highly flexible and strong Dust Sealing Cloth, which can be customized to suit any fixture, such as top frame of a screen, conveyor feeders and chutes etc.

The use of Forech Dust Sealing Cloth on a dust sealing system ensures a better working environment, reduced wear and corrosion, enabling safe, fast and easy maintenance.

Dust Sealing Cloth by Forech is supplied in standard width of 1500mm and a thickness of 2.0mm. with roll lengths of 20 metres. However, higher roll lengths can be supplied if requested.

Advantages of Rubber Screens over Metal Screens

  • Much reduced noise level
  • Non-corrosive in wet conditions
  • Does not suffer from pitting or stress corrosion (especially in the presence of sea water)
  • Does not suffer from fatigue, which is accelerated by vibration of the screen.
  • Good abrasion resistance normally outlasting steel by up to 4:1
  • Can be punched rapidly from stock to suit specific requirements.
  • More cost effective.

Advantages of Rubber Screens over Pulyurethene Screens

  • Rubber is less inclined to break soft or brittle particles into smaller sizes (especially suitable for coal)
  • Rubber is a more lively screen which prevents blinding and pegging.
  • Rubber has excellent tear resistance
  • Rubber has excellent impact resistance
  • Rubber has excellent puncture resistance
  • Out performs Urethanes where particles are greater than 3.0mm
