Preventing pressure screen failure
A leading cause for cylinder breakage is wear in the base of the screen housing. The interface design of the housing and cylinder make a “fit”, and maintaining that fit is key for keeping the cylinder stationary and operating properly.
A loose fit can be indicated by vibration and cylinder movement, leading to damage that can show itself in a number of ways. A regularly scheduled screen inspection is the most critical maintenance step to prevent pressure screen failure. Inspection frequency will depend on the screening process and typical wear tendencies.
