Custom-Fit Solutions For Multi-Industry Applications

Polyball™ Technical Information

Selecting Polyballs™ the proper screening machine and other industrial separation equipment for any application requires careful evaluation of many variables – feed rate, vibrating speed of the machine, screen mesh size, capacity, accuracy of separation, and the countless sizes and shapes of material. At Americule, we help create a custom-fit solution that best meets the unique needs of your application.

Polyball™ compounds can be used in gyratory, vibratory, and pressurized screeners and are available in specific compounds. They have been tested according to ASTM standards.
Polyballs are high-bounce polyurethane screen cleaning balls that are FDA acceptable for direct food contact.

Polyballs™ from Americule are produced as solid, elastomeric polyurethane with extraordinarily efficient temperature and endurance properties.

We added the magnetic steel core Polyball™ to our product line for companies with magnetic separators or metal detectors. This provides for greater safety and effectiveness than balls without steel cores. There is no need for in-line magnetic traps that normally capture particles, chips, and fragments of other balls which escape the ball tray and enter your product stream. Testing conducted at a leading manufacturer found excellent detection results when the Polyballs™ were mixed in with dry, non-conductive products.
