Several other suppliers offer similar screening media. Durex Products says its new Dur-X-LiveWire poly-wire slotted-wire screen media also eliminates blinding and plugging problems while delivering longer wear life. Available in Durex's Xtreme high-tensile-tempered or stainless-steel wire, Dur-X-LiveWire is suited for dry screening of materials that have high moisture and fines content. The wires are held in place by molded rubber strips that allow the flexing action required to keep screen openings clear. Durex says that, while rubber molded strips provide superior wear life in all applications, they are particularly ideal in hot and humid environments where thermoplastic polyurethane is not as effective. Dur-X-LiveWire is available in four different slot arrangements: diamond-shaped; accuslot (alternating Z and straight wires that form triangular-shaped openings); herringbone; and straight-wire slot openings (long slot screens that have parallel wires). An optional lap design is available that permits screen replacements without having to adjust adjacent screens. Screens are available with openings up to 2 inches and wire sizes up to º inch and with overall screen sizes up to 72 inches long by virtually any clamping width.
