The Somerville Screen is designed
to ensure that no fibre useful for papermaking is included in the shive content and that no significant fibre bundles are present in the accepted stock. Although originally designed for determining shive in groundwood pulps, the method is applicable to all mechanical pulps and chemical pulps. It is also used extensively for determining the contraries (stickies) remaining in recycled waste furnishes.
