Channel rubber or bucker-up rubber, as it is frequently called, is the single most important factor in preventing “metal to metal contact” when wire cloth or other tensioned screen media is used on vibrating screens. Channel rubber or bucker-up rubber acts as an “effective cushion” to prevent these screening surfaces from coming into direct contact with the steel supporting bars. Without channel rubber, “surface to surface contact” will occur, and the resulting destruction of the screening media (from the underside) is imminent.
Hoyt’s channel rubber is specifically designed to prevent this occurrence. Not only does Hoyt’s channel rubber prevent “surface to surface contact” but, more importantly, Hoyt’s high-quality channel rubber exerts upward pressure on the tensioned screening surface. This constant and upward pressure prevents unexpected wear (from the underside), saving you the cost of additional replacement panels, labor and downtime. Channel rubber is inexpensive when compared to the price of replacement screen panels, labor, and, most importantly, unexplained downtime.
