Symbols Used to Describe Perforated Metal Plate
Perforated metal plate for industrial screening purposes is supplied in flat or coiled form, with nominal sizes of holes from 1 to 125 mm for round holes and square holes from 4 to 125 mm with a maximum plate thickness of 12.5 mm. Below is the symbols used to describe perforated metal plate screens.
|a1||overall length of the short side of a plate (plate width)||SPMP-2|
|a2||length of the short side of the perforated area of a plate||SPMP-2|
|b1||overall length of the long side of a plate (plate length)||SPMP-2|
|b2||length of the long side of the perforated area of a plate||SPMP-2|
|c||amount out-of-square of a rectangular plate||SPMP-3|
|e||width of the margins on the long sides of a plate||SPMP-2|
|e1||width of the larger e-margin, if not equal||SPMP-2|
