Slotted Screen Open Area

Formula

The percentage of slotted screen open area may be determined by the following equation

 
W =    Width of Slot Opening
L =    Length of Sloth Opening
C =    Length of Cluster Opening
D =    Warp Wire Diameter
d =    Shoot Wire Diameter
A =    Percent of Open Area
( W x L + 2W x C )
(W + D) (W + D)
 A =

x 100

 

( L + d + 2( W + d ) )
