The Original Choice

Most boiler OEM’s deployed rigid woven wire mesh screens in their original configuration of bottom ash hoppers to serve as water seal trough protection. These screens came to be known by several names in the industry: drip screens; slag screens; ash screens; or drip lips.

Easy To Install

One of the primary features of rigid wire mesh screens is easy installation. Because of their rigid construction, these screens are easy to move and manipulate into a fitted position next to your refractory wall.

Low Up-Front Investment

Another benefit of rigid wire mesh screens is their low initial cost on the front end of the product life cycle. While it’s true that they may need to be replaced at a faster rate than flexible wire mesh screens, some boiler operators still prefer this type of screen based on their specific needs and capabilities.
