- THE MAGAZINE
Sweco, a business unit of M-I L.L.C., recently introduced the Fusion™ screen, which was developed from a new technology that “fuses” the screen mesh to the tension ring. Fusion screens have been designed to eliminate the use of adhesive, epoxy or silicone in screen manufacturing, resulting in a unitary construction that minimizes the potential for contamination.
Added benefits include precise repeatable tensioning and engineered uniform integral strain relief created from the complex robotic manufacturing process. Robotic manufacturing also results in faster turnaround for improved lead time and service.
The Fusion screen is comprised of the gasket, strain relief and screen frame as one molded part. As an option, a one-piece center disc with integral strain relief is also available for screens needing center support. Fusion screens are available in standard Fusion and Fusion Plus construction, which includes U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA)-approved components for use in sanitary applications and higher temperature limits.
