Rubber Icons Recycling & Waste Management

Perforated Rubber Products for the Waste Management & Recycling Industry

In addition to perforating metal sheeting, Graepels manufacture perforated rubber for the industry in a variety of aperture shapes, including round, square, slotted and elongated.

Polyurethane Screens

Similar to rubber screen mats, polyurethane screens are the product of choice for the filtering of materials unsuitable for metal screens. In addition to manufacturing tensioned polyurethane screens, Graepels produce a range of self-supporting modules in a wide range of apertures. Polyurethane screen mats may also be termed as “flip flow mats” and “flip flop mats”.

Rubber Screens 

Rubber screen mats are an advantageous choice for the Recycling and Waste Management Industry due to their longer life and reduced noise levels. These are used for filtering materials unsuitable for metal screens. Rubber mats are particularly suited to the upper part of a screen box or on a complete deck where required. We manufacture from 3mm thick up to 35mm rubber, and offer a range of apertures from 3mm to 150mm.

Mesh Screens Waste Management & Recycling

Woven Mesh Products for the Waste Management & Recycling Industry

Graepels woven mesh types are woven in rectangular slotted mesh, extra long slotted mesh and square mesh patterns. Economical to manufacture, rectangular slotted mesh has a greater open area for increased flow where binding or clogging occurs. The variable slot lengths mean it is often used to reduce flake content of material to acceptable levels. Slotted or elongated mesh is manufactured with double and triple cross wires. This provides a high open area and higher throughput than normal slotted mesh, decreasing the risk of clogging or binding. Square mesh is the most cost efficient of the woven mesh range with an extended lifespan. The formation of the wire allows for screening and production of regular shaped material.

 Woven Wire Mesh Screens

Graepels have manufactured woven wire mesh screens for the Recycling & Waste Management Industry for more than fifty years. Our screens are manufactured with the highest quality of wires, using only high tensile and high carbon stainless steel wire. Quality, down to the smallest detail, starts in production from the first crimping of the wire through to wire weaving. Our woven wire mesh screens manufactured for the Waste Management and Recycling Industry are cut to size and hooked. Screen mesh is manufactured in high tensile and stainless steel from 1.6mm to 150mm in wire thickness ranging from 1.2mm to 12.7mm.

Self Cleaning Mesh & Piano Wire Screens

Self-cleaning mesh screens are recommended where the prevention of clogging and anti-pegging are required or for very difficult areas. Crimped and straight wires are connected by cross wires at regular intervals. The wires vibrate independently of each other.

While “fragile” in comparison with other screens, piano wire screens give an excellent performance with throughput and binding. Piano wire screens are generally supplied for smaller screen sizes where wet and sticky conditions exist.

Perforated Metal Products for the Waste Management & Recycling Industry

Graepels perforate metal sheets for the industry in a variety of aperture shapes, including round, square, slotted and elongated.

Round, Square, Slotted & Elongated Perforations

For the Waste Management & Recycling Industry, Graeepls manufacture perforated metal screens in materials such as mild steel, stainless steel and wear resistant materials. Perforated screens are generally used in scalping screens and heavy duty screening applications. We supply these flat or hooked for tensioned decks in a wide range of aperture shapes including round, square, slotted and elongated.

Punch Plates 

Graepels perforated punch plates are utilised within screening and grading in the recycling, waste management, quarrying and milling industries. We manufacture perforated punch plates in a range of metal materials including mild and stainless steel, in addition to plastics, by special request. We offer punch plates in a variety of perforation shapes including round, square, elongated and hexagonal. Find out more here.

Other Products

Capping Rubber

Capping rubber, also known as cushion rubber, is an important consideration for fitting screen mesh as it acts as a buffer, preventing damage to the cloth or deck frame. Worn capping rubber will reduce the life span of mesh. Graepels manufacture capping rubber extrusions using 70 shore AEDPM rubber compound, which offers resistance to weather and aging.

Anti Slip Walkways, Steps & Ladder Rungs 

In addition to our products manufactured specifically for the Waste Management and Recycling Industry, Graepels fabricate safety metal walkways, steps and ladder-rungs. Our Safe Deck perforated metal flooring, steps and ladder rungs are an ideal choice for this industry.

Wash Bucket Screen 

Graepels dewatering sand buckets are offered in a range of round hole and slotted perforated apertures.

Machine Guards 

Graepels fabricate machine guards which aid in preventing potential accidents or injuries in the workplace.
