Metso Outotec makes screening media change-outs safer and faster with a new attachment system
Downtime is costly for screens in minerals processing and aggregates production. Metso Outotec’s hammerless attachment system for screening media provides safer installation, faster removal and maximised uptime.
Metso Outotec has introduced a unique attachment system for its Trellex screening media that offers increased productivity and makes media change-outs safer and faster than with traditional systems.
The removal of worn-out pin and sleeve screening media modules has been a time-consuming and potentially unsafe undertaking. Metso Outotec’s innovative new attachment system improves worker safety during change-outs. There is no need to use a hammer when installing and removing screening media. The specially developed pins can be screwed into place as well as removed using an impact driver. Accidents that occur when pins that are stuck get torn off by force can be avoided. In addition to improved safety, the new attachment system cuts the change-out time considerably, resulting in higher uptime and productivity.
Hammerless attachment system – Trellex 305PS
The Trellex 305PS can be used together with Metso Outotec’s one-of-a-kind, patent pending, hammerless attachment system. The specially developed pins can be screwed into place and removed using a cordless drill. This prevents accidents that occur when pins that are stuck are torn off by force. In addition to improved safety, the attachment system cuts the change-out time considerably, resulting in higher uptime and productivity.
“The introduction of the hammerless attachment system is yet another step Metso Outotec is taking to help our screening media customers minimise downtime and maximise productivity,” says David Hyslop, MIMICO’s Crushing & Screening Product Support.
The new attachment system is currently available as a standard option for Trellex 305PS screening media in the most common build heights (40 mm – 60 mm), and will soon be introduced for additional build heights.
Modular systems enable fast and easy maintenance
Modular systems are easy to handle and easy to keep in stock, so you have them when you need them. Metso Outotec’s offering consists of the Trellex 305PS range. The width and depth of this range of modular screening media can solve all your production challenges: availability, capacity, blinding and pegging.
Trellex PS modular systems have been designed for dependable operation, with lightweight rubber or polyurethane modules and easy snap-on or pin-and-sleeve connections. The unique use of various materials, coupled with efficient production technology, creates solutions and opportunities that deliver on your high expectations.

When buying screening media from MIMICO, you get more than just a wear part. MIMICO offers a pre-study and selects the media to match your conditions and targets. Wear and performance monitoring are regularly done to better understand your process and to optimise the media accordingly. Metso Outotec and MIMICO offer technical support, and can arrange product and process training as well as technical development meetings for customers.
