Difference between low price screen and high price screen

Low price screen or high price screen? This is a question existing decades. Almost shaker screen users will ask a question to themselves or to suppliers. Let’s talk about this issue in detail. What issues you have not thought about?

Should we use screen replacement at a higher price?

Yes, if we are the end user using material and equipment for well drillings or mud process. This is a suggestion from Aipu Solids Control. As we all know, it’s not an issue just about price or money. Frankly speaking, to users or clients a higher price may not be definitely higher quality. However, price is an important factor that reflects the quality level.

As a screen manufacturer, we know there are many procedure and materials leading to quality difference. For example, wire mesh holds 145mesh woven by S.S304 and S.S316 the price difference is 30-40% as per practical market. And for the composite frame, there is an element for appearance color. Almost all manufacturers use color granule, which is a lower cost. However, we use another material that makes a better evenness and general features of the panel frame, the result is its cost higher.
