Shale Shaker Screens
KEMTRON Technologies manufactures high performance
shale shaker screens
designed to handle large liquid flow rate capacity, plugging & blinding resistance, durable & long lasting construction at an economical price. Mechanically, the goal of a powder-coated pretensioned screen is to laminate multiple layers of wire mesh to a perforated steel plate and welded steel frame. As such, the quality of a powder-coated pretensioned screen is related to the bonding strength of the powder coat and the chemical and thermal resistance of the powder coat to environmental attack. KEMTRON's shaker screens meet those standards and provides our customers with a high quality dependable product capable of achieving a cut from 925 to 98 microns (D100 API rating).

By partnering with one of the industry’s leading powder-coat manufacturers, KEMTRON was able to develop a special powder coat formulation based on polyester resin. This specially blended polyester powder coat provides significantly improved mechanical bonding properties, improved bonding coverage and environmental resistance. Special additives are blended into the polyester formulation to enhance the mechanical properties compared to polyester alone. These additives allows for a higher level of cross-linking of the resin binder, ultimately producing a harder and more durable coating.
Process and Quality Control
When curing temperatures and raw material preparation are not carefully controlled, failures become highly likely with respect to screen to frame fusing, powder coat bonding, and screen surface strength. Ultimately, screens prematurely delaminate or tear.
As a result of these efforts, KEMTRON has developed a sophisticated quality assurance program. This program includes sand-blasted frames to ensure a high-grade anchor profile capable of supporting a quality coating bond, thoroughly cleaned perforated plates to ensure that no remaining oils or contaminants remain, and carefully examined stainless steel wire mesh to ensure that no defects are present.
To ensure that each KEMTRON screen meets minimum quality standards, the temperatures, melt times, and hold pressures are carefully monitored with calibrated instrumentation. From each batch, screens are selected for destructive quality control testing. Screens are submitted to a battery of quality control inspections, including coating consistency, coating adhesion properties, and mechanical strength.
Verification and Field Testing
KEMTRON has conducted a host of chemical immersion tests, including; diesel, alpha-olefin, calcium chloride, caustic soda, and kerosene. In all cases, KEMTRON’s new polyester powder-coated screens demonstrated superior environmental exposure resistance, when compared to competitor screens.
Upon successful lab testing, KEMTRON submitted hundreds of screens to actual field trials. It was these field trials that confirmed that KEMTRON had achieved a significantly higher level of quality and value.
API RP 13C Conformance
KEMTRON embraces the American Petroleum Institute’s (API) new recommended practice for shaker screen testing and labeling, API RP 13C. Previous screen designations were based on calculations, rather than physical testing causing much confusion in the industry. With RP 13C, customers now have a consistent means of evaluating products independent of manufacturer. All KEMTRON screens are rated and labeled per API 13C.

To develop both precise and accurate process control, KEMTRON conducted a battery of tests. These tests included; cure tests by varying time and temperature; bonding strength tests by testing the tensile strength of the cure screens through destructive testing; and chemical exposure tests by immersing a series of screens in chemicals characteristic of the oil & gas industry.
