Sweco has introduced its new Magnum screen, designed for increased strength and reliability. The patented Magnum screen reduces downtime and lowers maintenance costs for most users. Evolving from the company's ATSTM -- advanced technology screenTM -- development program, Magnum can be engineered to balance screen life, capacity and blinding (clogging) resistance to obtain the optimum performance for each application. Field testing has demonstrated effective screen life improvements of 1.5 to 5 times over traditional designs, with no catastrophic failures. The new screen's advanced bonding techniques enhance operating rates while providing rip-stop protection.
