Ordering Woven Wire Cloth from Samscreen? Be Specific!

When ordering woven wire cloth from Samscreen, it’s helpful if you have a few specifics in place prior to calling us. If you follow the helpful tips below, ordering your woven wire cloth – and receiving it with a minimum of downtime – should be a breeze.

Measure Twice: For flat woven wire screens without hooked edges simply measure the length and width in inches, for example, 72″ x 48″.

Know Your Terminology: For woven wire cloth screens with hooked edges, it is important to use the correct terminology for Inside Clamping Width, ICW or Outside Clamping Width, OCW. This can be determined by measuring an old screen, checking your manual, or calling our staff to see if we have the dimensions for your particular machine. Give the OCW or the ICW as well as screen length, for example, 48″ OCW x 72″ length.

Just Your Style: Samscreen has range of woven wire cloth with different hook and edge styles. Shrouding materials include galvanized and carbon steel. Other materials are available on request. Canvas or rubber inserts are also available for additional pullout resistance.

Slot Direction: When ordering screens with oblong openings it is important to specify the slot direction.

Installation & Maintenance: It pays to control your cost of material screening by using proper installation and maintenance procedures. You can dramatically increase the life of your screens and control costs by closely following manufacturer installation instructions and conducting the recommended maintenance for your woven wire screen and equipment.
