Project Name Metquip Screen Lining
Document ID #0787
Date Produced 27/09/2018

1) Introduction

Rexline Engineering had successfully completed the rubber lining work of a Metquip screen.This screen is used by  for iron ore mining in one of their mine sites.

Rexline Engineering with its technical expertise and combined experience of over 75 years in the wear and corrosion application industry successfully implemented its final product which was complimented by  Engineers.

We always focus on continuous improvement of wear products and processes to deliver outstanding results. We also have a track record in supplying some of the World’s largest mining companies with our REXLINE Premium Rubber, Wear Resistant Sheeting, Conveyor Belts, Ceramics and Steel Liners, Adhesives, Ceramic and Steel Epoxy, Rollers, Pulleys and fabrication.

2)Delining the previous rubber from the screen.

The Schenck screen was previously lined with a 10mmorange rubber from another supplier and it only lasted for 6months. Refer below images to see signs of worn out and problematic areas of the screen during our service and inspection in the workshop.

Major rusting and delamination on the screen’s side wall. This is cause by gaps between the rubber and the parent metal causing water to penetrate inside the surface.

3) Our Solutions
To replace the previous rubber, we used our own trademark Rexline Orange 10mm which has a higher abrasion resistance, better flex, elongation, tear resistance compared to the previous rubber used. The client is keen to use our Rexline orange rubber as we gave them warranty that it will last twice as longer as the previous one.
