Metso offers first recyclable screening media

Metso have developed the first fully recyclable modular screening media – Metso Trellex LS-Eco (Fig.). In response to customer requests for sustainable and environmentally-friendly screening media solutions, and in line with the sustainability program, the company have taken the acclaimed Metso Trellex LS rubber modular screening media systems and successfully replaced the traditional steel reinforcement with an environmentally-friendly composite material. This makes it possible to effectively recycle the customers’ screening media.


The Metso Trellex LS-Eco offers a wide range of health, safety and environmental benefits. Each screening media panel is up to 40 % lighter than standard steel reinforced Trellex LS panels. This makes handling easier and the working environment safer. Lighter panels also help to reduce the overall stress on the entire screening installation. Compared to steel-reinforced panels, the composite-reinforced panels of the Metso Trellex LS-Eco are more flexible and will reduce the effects of pegging and blinding during screening operations. The Metso Trellex LS-Eco promises reduced downtime and increased productivity. The Trellex 300LS and Trellex 305LS rubber and polyurethane panels are already acclaimed worldwide as being among the most versatile modular screening media solutions. They can be attached to most screening media systems and handle all types of screening applications – fine and coarse, wet and dry.


Metso Trellex LS-Eco, 305 x 610, is scheduled to be available in selected markets in Q4, 2011. Other dimensions will be available in 2012. Trellex LS is produced at Metso manufacturing units in accordance with quality certification IS0 9001, workers safety certification ISO 14 001 and Environmental certification OHSAS 18001.
