Kirby-Smith Machinery Named Major Wire Dealer“Kirby-Smith makes customer service a top priority,” states Gary Pederson, Major Wire Vice President of Sales. “In addition to their full staff of service personnel working with customers on-site, they also offer seminars throughout the year to help their customers stay on top of industry changes and advancements. Their dedication to providing customers with superior service and expertise fits perfectly with the value-added programs offered by Major Wire, including on-site Screening Plant Audits, Screen Maintenance Seminars and our Flex-Mat 3 Results Guaranteed Program.”

Major Wire’s advanced Flex-Mat 3 High-Performance, Self-Cleaning Screen Media is available in a tensioned version as an alternative to traditional woven wire and a modular version designed to replace polyurethane and rubber modular screen panels. Independently vibrating wires increase product throughput by up to 40 percent over traditional woven wire or polyurethane panels by increasing screening action and open area and eliminating blinding, pegging and clogging.

Major Wire’s OptimumWire Woven Wire has a unique chemical makeup that provides up to 40 percent longer wear life when compared to traditional woven wire of the same diameter. Delivering the industry’s best combination of ductility, hardness and tensile strength, OptimumWire is less susceptible to breaking in high-impact conditions and with highly abrasive materials, so it lasts longer and minimizes labor, maintenance and lost production costs.

“We add value to our customers by going the extra mile,” states David Baker, Vice President of Parts & Service at Kirby-Smith. “One of our salesman has over 30 years of experience selling screen media and introduced us to the product line. It didn’t take long for us to realize that Major Wire was a great fit for our company and customers. Major Wire screen media increases production and our customers like that.”
