Multotec mining screens are used in sorting, classifying, dewatering, scalping, and desliming applications, with one of the world’s largest ranges of rubber, polyurethane, wedge wire, steel and combination (Polywedge and Polypunch) screen media.
We offer completely optimised composite screen decks, with customised and leading screen technology solutions, for all your processing requirements.
Applying our 50 years of refined experience with robust, heavy duty and resilient screening solutions, we have boosted mineral screening processes around the world.
Depend on our mining solutions and technology in your mining and minerals processing application to deliver extended equipment wear life, decreased downtime and, ultimately, lower your overall cost per ton processed.
Multotec’s customised screen deck maps are designed and tailored to suit your screening requirements.
Utilising our purpose-specific screen panels, we can optimise each area of your screen deck to suit your application conditions, material and output targets.
We’ve delivered composite screen decks, customised with over a dozen different types of panels, with each type fulfilling a specific function.
Apertures are selected with reference to the screen’s purpose, feed tonnage required, average particle size and shape, to ensure maximum mineral screening efficiency at the lowest overall cost.
We are committed to research and development in high performance mining and minerals screen media, while consistently lowering the overall cost per ton processed for our clients.
Our commitment ensures our clients in the mining and minerals industry optimised, turnkey solutions, through adaptive screening machines and technologies.
This commitment improves your mineral processes through screening machines that are modular, cost-effective and designed to lower your maintenance and downtime, while executing an even feed distribution and high sorting capacities.
Multotec’s 50 years of experience and knowledge of the global mining industry has led to the creation of easy-to-install and change-out screening equipment.
Our commitment to lowering your downtime has led to the creation of the interlocking system. With this innovative modular design, you only need to replace individual screen panels as they wear, not the entire mining screen.
This invention has shown incredible savings on our client’s downtime and maintenance costs.
The Multotec monitoring software Hawkeye™ provides complete real time as well as historical recordings of your screens’ condition. By accurately indicating screen media wear, Hawkeye™ helps optimise wear parts’ maintenance, reducing downtime and ensuring your screen media reliably delivers the necessary plant cut size.
Hawkeye™ also provides a powerful planning system for on-going application improvement; through plant systematically management and analysis of screen wear parts, recording wear data from the screening deck. Screen requirements in every deck part are constantly refined, through tracking the performance of the various panel types on each deck in operation over time.

Multotec screen panels are manufactured with our visual wear indicators, comprising of four or five moulded cavities in the body of the panel, spaced at predetermined intervals below the upper wear surface.
As the panel surface is worn away, the individual cavities become visible, with the final cavity indicating the need for a replacement shortly.
Our patented, simple but innovative system, not only indicates when replacement needs to take place, but is also a useful data source to measure the rate of wear so that future maintenance can be planned and predicted.
This holistic system of visual wear and the Hawkeye™️ data collection and analysis, supplies intelligence about your specific process, factoring in the wear of your screens and offering advice for consistent screen optimisation. For example, Hawkeye™️ can be used to identify areas of harder wear on your screen, leading the way for greater screen deck optimisation.
Blinding occurs when any particles such as: dirt, minerals and other substances, stick to and bridge across your screening surface apertures. This creates a stubborn paste that blocks screening material from movement through.
Pegging is the occurrence of irregular material blocked in the screen apertures, which happens when stones are around a similar size as your screening holes.
Multotec screens reduce both pegging and blinding by design with functional, self-relieving apertures, consistently maintaining your optimum screening efficiency.
