Ever since GN Solids Control started manufacturing for solids control equipment, in order to control the screen quality for GN’s own brand shakers, GN has invested in a screen factory. As the rapid development of GN Solids Control, just in early year 2017, GN Solids Control has invested in a new screen producing line with automatic screen producing facilities and upgraded all screen models for GN shakers.

Previously, nearly all frame screens are made of steel frames, and most producing procedures are manual. But with the new screen producing line, following improvements were achieved:
1. For welding the screen frames, GN is using an automatic welding robot to ensure the precise positioning of every point.
2. GN is choosing the highest quality fiber glass as the plastic component in order to ensure the high temperature resistance of screens.
3. Stainless steel material as screen mesh for longer screen service life.
4. Ideal screen mesh configurations as per API RP 13C standard, and higher conductance at same API number.

As both the producing cost and material cost are higher for composite material frames than steel frame screens, why GN and GN clients prefer composite material frame ones?
1. The composite material frame screens could be storage for longer time than the steel frame ones. Per GN experiences, after storage for 2 years, most of steel frame screens would lose much characters, but composite material frame ones could be storage at least 5 years without losing any performance.
2. Comparing with steel frame screens, the composite material frame occupies smaller screen area, so the useful area is larger, by more than 10%.
3. Composite material frame screens are repairable. With GN Special made screen plugs, the composite material frame screens could be underuse with up to 10% surface broken.

Now GN is holding big promotion on screens, pls contact GN for more information.
