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.

Polymax™ Technical Information

A lot of thought goes into choosing the right product for the job. Americule’s unique Polymax™ material is tough enough, hard enough and strong enough. You name it–it’s Enough!

The Polymax™  mallet head outlasts rubber 3-to-1, reducing the need for replacement. It’s resilient to cutting and chipping, spark free and doesn’t leave scuff marks behind. Polymax™ heads reduce workplace noise.

Polymax™ pipes provide a superior method of moving viscous fluids and particulates. The highly abrasion resistant pipes, elbows and other reducers outlast and are easier to replace than heavier steel counterparts.

Americule’s Polymax™ wear plates are the toughest on the market. They combine the perfect hardness of ceramic tiles and the flexibility of the urethane to make them top-of-the-line.

The amber-colored thermoset elastomer, made to hardnesses of 60D and 95A, gets the job done in a number of industries from steel rule die to oil and gas. The Polymax™ material itself is FDA acceptable, which means it can be used in the food industry.
