Patented XR MESH shaker screen mesh

Rectangular openings and 50%-larger-diameter wire, combined with our patented cloth calendaring design, give XR MESH shaker screen mesh excellent capacity and the longest screen life in the industry. XR MESH shaker screen mesh coupled with DURAFLO screen technology allows best-in-class fluid-handling capacity. High conductance results in reduced mesh loading compared with traditional mesh types.

Market grade (MG)

MG is our most basic mesh type, featuring a single-layer cloth with heavy wire diameter and square openings. Because of the durable, heavy-wire diameter, the MG is used primarily as a scalping screen with excellent screen life.

HC mesh

Two fine screening layers over a support cloth provide superior performance in blinding applications enable the HC mesh to yield excellent capacity. Screen life is equal to the XL mesh. While the fine wire diameter provides excellent capacity, the HC mesh has shorter screen life and lower separation efficiency compared with our other mesh types.

Ultrafine (XL) screen

The XL screen has been specifically designed for use in drilling sandstone formations, which typically create blinding problems with standard screen mesh types. Our XL mesh features two fine-screening layers with a support mesh having square openings of medium wire diameter for improved capacity, screen life, and blinding resistance.
