    I ran across these screens the other day and was wondering what advantages/disadvantages they have.
    We just run a standard square screen size for material we are trying to achieve.
    Just curious what these would be good for?

    The strait ones are to increase throughput in certain material the diamond ones are anti-blinding(clogging) in sticky material Both are more expensive than standard square we have a few old ones laying around but never had a need for them either

    You wouldn't use square screen in high angle multi frequency screens either. The long aperature is fitting for those types of application

    Cool thanks for the info, we will be making some Pea gravel next week and sometimes have problems with silt packing off the squares, maybe i'll give this a shot!

    Do you have the ability to increase amplitude, or is it "fixed"? What about speed and angle of the box. Do you have any adjustments available to you?
