The Multotec high-impact Ceradox screen panel incorporates both Hardox blocks and alumina ceramic tiles, for a panel that provides more than double the wear life of traditional rubber.
For our customers, this high-wear solution means reduced plant downtime and increased screening productivity. Best suited for high durability in primary screening applications
The range was engineered by Multotec's mineral processing specialists in South Africa and Australia for a demanding iron ore scalper application, now made available to the global market.
The panels are manufactured locally at Multotec’s high-volume facilities in South Africa, which includes a rubber mixing plant run by experienced rubber specialists.
In 2019 Multotec received a request from an iron ore mining customer in Australia’s Pilbara region, which needed a panel with an extended wear life, in order to only conduct replacements during the regular maintenance shut-down every 12 weeks.
The Ceradox panel withstands the impact of material up to 300 mm in size, falling from a discharge height of up to three metres.
Tests proved that the panels last 24 weeks and longer.
The resulting design leverages the impact strength of the Hardox blocks and the abrasion resistance of the ceramic tiles, embedded in Multotec’s proprietary rubber formulation which helps absorb the energy of the falling material.
