An Introduction to Self Cleaning Screen Mesh

Self-cleaning screen mesh, a technological innovation in the field of filtration and separation, has revolutionized various industries by addressing the challenges associated with clogging and maintenance of traditional screen meshes. This article aims to provide a comprehensive overview of self-cleaning screen mesh, including its principles of operation, benefits, types, applications, and so on.

Self Cleaning Screen Mesh VS. Traditional Screen Mesh

Here's a detailed comparison to help understand the differences between self cleaning screen mesh and traditional screen mesh:


Self Cleaning Screen Mesh

Traditional Screen Mesh

Cleaning Mechanism

Utilizes vibrating or bouncing action to shed material buildup

Requires manual cleaning or periodic maintenance to remove material buildup


Offers continuous operation without interruption due to material clogging

Prone to clogging, leading to downtime for cleaning and maintenance

Maintenance Frequency

Requires less frequent maintenance intervals compared to traditional mesh

Requires regular maintenance and cleaning to prevent material blockages

Material Quality

Typically made from high-quality, durable materials designed to withstand abrasion and wear

Material quality may vary, leading to potential degradation over time


Initial investment may be higher due to advanced technology and materials

Lower initial cost, but may incur higher long-term costs due to maintenance and downtime


Suitable for high-volume screening applications where continuous operation is critical

Commonly used in various industries but may be less efficient for high-volume or abrasive materials


Longer lifespan due to reduced wear and tear from self-cleaning action

Lifespan may be shorter due to material degradation from frequent cleaning and maintenance

Performance in Harsh Conditions

Performs well in harsh environments with abrasive materials or extreme temperatures

May be less effective in harsh conditions, requiring more frequent maintenance and replacements

How Does a Self Cleaning Screen Mesh Work?

A self cleaning screen mesh, such as the Anpeng Self Cleaning Wire Mesh series, operates through a clever combination of materials and high-frequency vibration to address the challenges of blinding, pegging, and clogging in screening applications.

The key to its functionality lies in its construction: polyurethane (PU) bands, with a hardness of 90 Shore A, are integrated with steel wires. This combination allows for robustness and flexibility. During screening, high-frequency vibration is applied, facilitated by the PU bands.

What's unique about this design is that each wire on the self-cleaning screen vibrates at a different frequency. This diversity in vibration frequencies is crucial. It generates a dynamic movement across the screen, effectively preventing material from adhering or clogging.

The principle is ingeniously simple: as material passes through the screen, it encounters this multi-frequency vibration. This action dislodges any particles attempting to cling to the screen, allowing them to either pass through or bounce back up. Essentially, the alternating forces created by the varying vibration frequencies act as a self-cleaning mechanism, ensuring continuous operation and optimal screening efficiency even in challenging conditions.

Types of Self Cleaning Screen Mesh

Diamond Opening Screen: This series features diamond-shaped openings with a wire diameter ranging from 1.2mm to 12.7mm and opening sizes from 2.24mm to 62.00mm. The diamond mesh screen provides high-quality, consistent products with greater open area and increased throughput, suitable for most general applications.

Wave Opening Screen: With wire diameters ranging from 1.2mm to 12.7mm and opening sizes from 3.18mm to 17.15mm, this series is designed to deliver maximum throughput and is ideal for removing fines, producing a cleaner retained product. This kind of wire mesh vibrating screen features crimped wires placed parallel to each other.

Triangle Opening Screen: This series, with wire diameters ranging from 1.2mm to 12.7mm and opening sizes from 1.2mm to 20.00mm, is specifically designed for finer size materials and can absorb greater impact while maintaining accurate sizing. This triangle screen utilizes a unique combination of crimped and straight wires to form triangular opening shapes.

Harp Screen: Featuring wire diameters from 1.2mm to 12.7mm and opening sizes from 4.0mm to 25.00mm, the harp screen mesh series is designed in a standard piano wire screen style. It is most efficient in the dry screening of sand, gravel, topsoil, and more, with maximum open area for effective removal of various materials.

Applications of  Self Cleaning Screen Mesh

Self-cleaning screen meshes find extensive usage across multiple industries, making them the optimal selection for the separation and screening of wet materials.

Mining and Aggregate Industries: In mining and aggregate operations, self-cleaning screen mesh is utilized extensively in vibrating screens to separate and classify different materials such as ores, minerals, and aggregates. Its self-cleaning feature ensures uninterrupted screening processes, even in harsh and abrasive environments, thus improving operational efficiency.

Quarrying and Construction: Self-cleaning screen mesh is indispensable in quarrying and construction applications, where it efficiently sorts and separates different sizes of stones, gravel, and sand. Its ability to prevent clogging and blinding enhances productivity on screening equipment, leading to smoother operations and higher throughput.

Chemical Industry: In chemical processing applications, self-cleaning screen mesh is employed for wet material separation in processes such as particle classification and filtration. Its robust construction and self-cleaning capabilities ensure reliable operation, making it suitable for handling corrosive chemicals and abrasive materials with minimal maintenance requirements.
