  • Customer Benefits


The Meshcape™ Bolted Pin System (BPS) is a modular polyurethane screening surface to meet present and future demands of the crushing industry. They are available in rubber, polyurethane, perforated plate, wedge wire and wire screen configurations.


Grommet A mushroom shaped bush that is spigoted into the disc top frame and “L” bolted into position securely latches the panel to the frame allowing high ‘G’ force operation of the machine. The ‘bolted’ assembly negates the need for over size pins or sleeves that become necessary when utilising the traditional pin system. Deflector caps A dome shaped deflector cap is secured into a groove in the panel to protect the L bolt assembly and acts as a deflector.
