TYPES OF CRIMPS
Conventional Double Crimp
The most popular type. Used where the opening is relatively small in comparason to the wire diameter (3 to 1 or less).
Used in coarse specifications to maintain the accuracy of weave throughout screen life where the opening is large with respect to wire diameter (3 to 1 or greateer).
Used in coarse weaves of light wire to provide greater stability, tightness of weave and maximum rigidity.
Usually starts at 5/8" opening and larger. Provides longest abrasive resistance life since there are no projections on top to wear. Offers least resistance to flow.
