wire screens, baskets, sieve bends for filtration and
wide range of wedge wire screens with slot widths from
0.05mm (50 microns) and open areas from 2% through to
40.0% provides solutions for many filtering and separation
are either fabricated in flat panels with V-sectioned
profiled wire arranged in a parallel form and resistance
welded to a number of support cross rods or by winding
a continuous V-sectioned extruded wire helicoidally onto
support bars in the form of a cylinder and welded at each
composition of wires and supports can be of different
shapes, sizes and materials for different applications
where temperature, pressure and applicable conditions
prevail such as abrasion and corrosion.
of the important features of wedge wire screen for filtering
and separation is the continuous aperture or “slot”, which
automatically provides a large open area guaranteeing
a very low pressure drop through the filtering surface
with a low tendency to blind or clog.
widths” are very precise, but more so with looped wedge
wire. This type being used for starch screens for the
extraction of corn starch
to the wires being wound close together and the large
number of welds, wedge wire screens are inherently strong
and able to provide extended life in such areas as industrial
continuous aperture and triangular wire section ensures
there are only two particle contact points, which minimizes
the risk of blinding and clogging.
wedge wire screen floors can be designed for individual
requirements in terms of finish, number of segments and
diameters for the needs of the brewing and sugar industry.
following are a few of the special types of screen available
designed against special characteristics
