Meeting your requirements with unmatched speed to market

Multotec screening media has been developed in response to the world’s toughest mineral screening applications. We offer this global technology to the world’s mining and mineral processing houses through an established worldwide footprint that includes a complete network of branches and distributors in almost 70 countries on 6 continents.

Multotec supports your screening plant with large stockholdings of screen panels and screening media products to ensure we can respond rapidly to your unique requirements.

Your local Multotec experts offer complete turnkey solutions for screening media installations, including design and engineering, installation and commissioning, and wear monitoring and field service support. Our teams will ensure the optimum screening media solution is supplied according to your specific plant and process parameters and requirements, such as feed tonnage required, the average particle size and the particle shape.

This is how we lower the overall costs of your screening operation.

Customised deck maps to optimise your screening process

Multotec can design and build completely customised screening decks. Drawing on one of the world’s largest ranges of purpose-specific screen panels – from materials including rubber, polyurethane, steel, woven-wire, ceramics, Hardox, fibreglass and combinations of these materials – we can optimise each area of your screen deck to suit the conditions, your material and output targets.

A popular composite deck configuration is to place a set of panels with highly impact-resistant material at the feed end of the screen, where the impact of material from the feed box or chute is highest.

We’ve supplied composite screen decks with over a dozen different types of panels, with each panel fulfilling a specific function. The apertures will be chosen according to the screen’s purpose and factors like the feed tonnage required, the average particle size and the particle shape. That way, we can ensure maximum mineral screening efficiency at the lowest overall cost.

Condition monitoring innovations help manage wear and risk

Hawkeye condition monitoring systems

Our monitoring software Hawkeye™ provides complete real time and historical intelligence of the condition of your screening media. Through accurately indicating screen media wear, Hawkeye™ helps optimise wear-related maintenance and reduces downtime, while ensuring your screening media reliably delivers the cut size your plant required.

By enabling plant operations and technical teams to systematically manage and analyse wear data from the screening deck, Hawkeye™ also provides a powerful planning system for on-going application improvement. By tracking the performance over time of the various panel types on each deck in operation, the screening requirements in each part of the deck can be constantly refined.

Visual wear indicators

Multotec screen panels are manufactured standard with visual wear indicators. These wear indicators comprise 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, so the individual cavities become visible, the final cavity of which indicates that a replacement must be conducted or planned shortly.

This simple but innovative system, patented by Multotec, not only indicates when replacement needs to take place, but can be used as a data source to measure the rate of wear so that a future replacement time can be predicted and planned.

Multotec screens reduce pegging and blinding

Blinding occurs when dirt, minerals and other substances adhere and bridge across the apertures of your screening surface, creating a stubborn paste that blocks material from screening through. Pegging describes the presence of irregular material lodged in the screen apertures, and occurs when stones are about the same size as the holes.

Designed with functional, self-relieving apertures Multotec screens help reduce pegging and blinding to consistently maintain maximum screening efficiency.

Research & Development

Multotec, in partnership with universities across the globe, is constantly developing and testing new innovations and technologies to respond the challenges our customers face in processing minerals more efficiently, and at a lower cost.

Our screening equipment of today reflects over 45 years of innovation and optimisation in the world’s largest mining and mineral processing operations.
