When screening is a major part of your manufacturing process, profits depend upon the proper screens being selected. The "Open Area" of a screen is critical when maximum production is required from your screening equipment. For that reason, the open area of every wire cloth specification in this webpage is shown.

Types of Crimp

Lock Crimp. Lock Crimp is one of the most efficient patterns for all heavy duty screens when rough screening surface is acceptable and when spacing is large in relation to the wire size. Lock crimp locks each wire in place so that a uniform opening is maintained. A very durable weave, the distortion from impact of heavy oversizes is minimized. Used whenever possible for aggregate screens.
Double Crimp. Generally used when heavy wire diameters are needed to make small openings. The wires are crimped only at points where they intersect. Both the warp and shoot wire are single crimped in the weaving to reduce wire shifting and looseness in use.
Smooth Top Crimp. Ingram also produces large opening Smoothtop screens for supporting fine-mesh.

Types of Weave

Weave Acme produces a wide range of weave patterns including square mesh, rectangular mesh, and triple wire longslot. Longslot screening is partcualarly helpful when working with wet or moist aggreagate materials.
