Manufacturing, Repair and Design
Industrial Screen and Maintenance has specialized in industrial screen manufacturing, repair and design for almost 50 years. Making and repairing screens for multiple industries; drilling, pipeline, mining, construction, breweries, food service and agriculture. As an industry leader we have worked with dozens of fortune 500 companies and shipped our products worldwide. With decades of experience our in house engineers and design staff are able to help trouble shoot and problem solve for just about any application. We stock a large inventory of quality Stainless Wire Mesh, Stainless Wire Cloth, Stainless Perforated Steel in various thicknesses and hole patterns.
The following general metal comparison is intended as a guide only to help you select the optimum metal for your application. Virtually all metals can be woven into wire cloth. For best results, please describe the application on your order or discuss it with one of our sales representatives.
STEEL Low carbon C1008 is most commonly used. High carbon/hard drawn for high tensile strength and good abrasion resistance.
STAINLESS STEEL Type 304 – Stainless is the basic alloy of this group and is used extensively in the manufacturing of wire cloth. It contains nominally 18% Chromium and 8% Chromium and 8% Nickel.
Type 316 – with its addition of 2% minimum Molybdenum, it provides considerable increased resistance to certain corrosive media. It also provides increased strength at high temperatures.
Type 304L and 316L – are lower in carbon content and are frequently used to retain corrosion resisting properties after welding.
Type 17-4 –Precipitation Hardening also known as Type 630 is a chromium-copper precipitation hardening stainless steel used for applications requiring high strength and a moderate level of corrosion resistance. High strength is maintained to approximately 600 degrees Fahrenheit (316 degrees Celsius). Primarily used for our Down hole Motor Components, Drilling Screens and Aerospace components.
Type 321 – containing Titanium, is frequently specified where there is a possibility of sensitization with a resulting loss of corrosion resistance.
Type 347 – is for welded assemblies which operate in corrosive environments, and is used to minimize sensitization. Type 347 contains Columbium, which does not volatilize during welding.
Type 430 – Stainless Steel contains 17% nominal Chromium and is more resistant to chemical attack and high temperature scaling. This alloy is magnetic and is not heat treatable.
HEAT RESISTING ALLOYS High Nickel copper alloys such as Monel and Inconel can withstand temperatures up to 1800 degrees Fahrenheit and resist corrosion in acids, sea water and caustic solutions.
NICKEL Excellent corrosion resistance in most environments except sulfurous conditions most commonly used in petrochemical and heat treating applications.
ALUMINUM Light weight, good electrical conductor and resists atmospheric corrosion 5056 alloy is used for higher strength.
COPPER Good formability with excellent electrical and thermal conductivity resists corrosion from fresh and salt water, alkaline solutions and atmosphere low tensile strength.
BRASS Most common 80% Copper / 20% Zinc good formability with lower thermal conductivity and higher tensile strength than copper resists corrosion like copper.
BRONZE Most common 90% copper / 10% zinc better corrosion resistance and lower strength than brass.
RARE METALS Such as Tantalum, Molybdenum, Titanium, Silver and Platinum can be furnished as specified.
