Samscreen Solutions – A. Taylor: “Tension” Headaches

A. Taylor, a sand and gravel producer based in Massachusetts, was having some major concerns over screening. The screens in their Eagle® screening plant were breaking apart from the impact wear off the feeder belt. That’s when they called Samscreen, Inc. for assistance.

Samscreen discussed better options in screening media with A. Taylor, and we addressed tensioning issues that the producer was experiencing as they installed screens in the unit. We suggested that their current configuration of woven wire cloth might not be the best option for their application, and explained the importance of proper tensioning of the screening media.

Samscreen replaced the standard woven screens with our Maxwear™ punch plate, and by using a hexagon opening configuration instead of the square opening, increased wear life dramatically. In addition, we manufactured new clamp rails and provided capping rubber and carriage pins to make it easier to keep the screens tensioned for maximum wear life.

As a result, A. Taylor now has a screening solution tailored to their unique application – no more “tension” headaches for this sand and gravel producer!
