Choosing a woven wire screen for top separation performance

In any screening application, achieving top-quality product and peak efficiency requires careful screen selection. This article explains how to choose the right woven wire screen for your application. Sections cover screen basics, how to choose the right screen opening size, wire diameter, and attachment method, and how to operate and maintain your screener after the screen is installed.

A screener (also called a separatorr or sifter) mechanically separates dry free-flowing materials by particle size by moving the material in relation to a screen (or screens). Each screen is round or rectangular and is attached to a frame in an assembly called a screen deck. The screener can be used in a range of applications -- including chemicals, pharmaceuticals, food products, plastics, minerals, and pigments -- to scalp material, remove fines, or grade material. In any of these applications, choosing the right screen is the single most important factor in achieving top separation performance.
