To protect the product from damage, we can vulcanize a soft rubber layer onto the rods. This rubber has a hardness of 30-35° shore. With these rods, the centre belt is attached with OGP. Because each rod must be vulcanized in a mold not every width is available.
By using this rod, sieve webs are almost ‘closed’. The gap between the rods is approximately 4mm and therefore extremely suitable for dewatering of products.
