Blue Group Announces Distribution Agreement with Major Wire
Blue Group are delighted to announce an exclusive distribution agreement with Canadian Company, Major Wire, manufacturers of technologically advanced high vibration wire screen media.
Major Wire was established in 1884 by Mr. E. J. Major, with its current head office in the Montreal, Canada. From their 93,000 sq. foot flagship facility, the company manufactures cutting edge screens which are sold throughout the world.
These innovations include the Flex-Mat®, a high vibration wire screen media which has proven to increase efficiency in more than 35,000 applications across the world. The secret behind this performance are the individual wires, which are able to vibrate independently. These individual wires which are held in place by distinctive green polyurethane strips vibrate between 6,000 and 10,000 cycles per minute, which is up to 13 times more than a standard screenbox. This improves material stratification, the process by which vibration in a bed of material causes the larger particles to rise to the top and smaller particles to fall to the bottom, thus allowing the specified sizes to fall through the wire, as opposed to being carried forward with the larger sized material. In addition to improved productivity and separation, the Flex-Mat® improves open area, helps to eliminate any blinding and pegging, as well as increasing the wear life of the screen.
OptimumWire® is another industry first. With its high carbon, manganese metallurgical content the wire lasts up to 40% longer, which in turn decreases labour and downtime costs. Furthermore each screen is manufactured with extremely tight crimps and weave, as well as a leading stringent wire opening.
The screen media manufactured by Major Wire are available in a number different designs and configurations, allowing work in a variety of applications. From the Double-Wire, which provides precise sorting in high impact and heavy material applications, the ‘D series’ for precise passing and the ‘S Series’ which removes fines and produces a cleaner retaining material whilst reducing the binding of sticky, wet materials. The media also allows for installation into the screening equipment of all major brands.
Commenting on the agreement, André Mathieu, VP Global Business Development from Major Wire said, “We take great pride in working closely with our dealers. Our aim is to jointly assist customers achieve and ultimately surpass their production goals. Blue are an ideal partner for us as their strong customer focus will allow us to achieve that objective within the UK market.”
Major Wire will be distributed via Blue Group’s Spares Facility with popular styles and sizes being held in stock for immediate despatch.
Blue Spares Technical Manager, Lee Holman highlighted, “This agreement with one of the world’s leading screen media manufacturers, is great news for Blue. We are always looking at ways to better serve our customers and this will be another opportunity to help them increase their productivity and lower their costs”
