We recommend obtaining a specialized shaker screen washer for shaker screen cleaning. High-pressure washers are recommended because they clean shaker screens better and flush out more blockages than low-pressure washers.Another tool to use to maintain your shaker screen is a snap plug. These are normally made of rubber, though some manufacturers use a composite plug. Both types of plugs can help repair some shaker screen damage. The plugs are either rectangle or hexagonal in shape.
