(Opening sizes: 3/32″ – 8″)
Square openings are by far the most commonly used opening shape in the aggregate industry. Specific aggregate material gradations are normally produced through, and tested by, square opening screens. Hoyt Wire Cloth’s manufacturing tolerances for square openings are more rigid than the ASTM standard for woven screens. These “tighter” manufacturing opening tolerances offer the benefits of longer screen cloth wear-life and production of accurately sized aggregate material. Due to the abrasive action of the aggregate upon the screen openings, these openings eventually become larger, passing larger material. Once the opening size becomes too large, the screen panel must be replaced. However, due to tighter tolerances, longer effective wear-life and production is realized with Hoyt’s woven wire screens.
