Boost Productivity and Improve Wear Life with Livewire® Screen Media


LUCK, WISCONSIN – Livewire® screen media from Luck, Wisconsin-based Durex Products, Inc., is a self-cleaning screen, featuring molded rubber strips that hold high-strength wires in place. Providing better screening action than traditional woven wire and greater open area than polyurethane, this screen media is designed to boost production by reducing costly, time-consuming blinding, plugging, and pegging problems — while also delivering superior wear life.

Livewire screen media is available in XT high-tensile or stainless-steel wires. Durex’s wire specifications provide ideal durability and strength, which permits the company to use lighter-gauge wire, allowing more openings per square foot of screening area. Its 60-durometer, compression-vulcanized rubber strips provide superior flexing action for self-cleaning capabilities. In addition, rubber strips deliver greater wear life in environmental conditions that may adversely affect thermoplastic polyurethane. The Livewire line is available in Accuslot®, Diamond (single and double), Herringbone, and Straight wire slot openings for maximum output in a variety of dry or damp applications.

With 55 years in business, Durex Products Inc. designs, manufactures, and markets wear parts and screen media, including polymer media in tensioned and modular versions and woven-wire cloth, for the aggregates, mining, recycling, and industrial industries.
