Hanover, Pennsylvania-based Gerard Daniel Worldwide says recyclers and other users of vibratory separator machines have a bottom line-related reason to consider its screen refurbishment service.
“With Gerard Daniel’s rescreening program, users can recycle their screens and save money—in most cases more than 25 percent per screen,” the company says. Gerard Daniel says it developed the program in response to the increasing price of stainless steel, saying the cost of the metal has doubled since 2020.
Using what it calls a proprietary process designed to preserve the rings in as-new condition, Gerard Daniel’s rescreening program removes old worn screens from their frames. After removing the epoxy and mesh from the rings, the screens are replaced and the assemblies are returned to the customer, ready to use, according to the firm.
“The greater the number of screens shipped to Gerard Daniel at any given time, the greater the savings by virtue of amortizing the shipping costs over higher quantities,” the company adds.
Gerard Daniel says users who are not seeing optimal productivity from their machines can benefit from the knowledge of its application engineers—mesh “experts” who can recommend a mesh replacement to improve performance without having to purchase completely new assemblies. Gerard Daniel also can store customers’ screens as inventory in its warehouse.
The company says it has deep supply chain resources and multiple locations in the United States, as well as Canada and Ireland, to respond to customer needs quickly.
