Hub and Header Laterals Wedge Wire Screen


Wedge Wire Hub and Header Laterals are divided into Hub Radial Lateral Assembly and Header Lateral Assembly. It is for the uniform arrangement of water in a certain working area according to the law.

All Lateral Assemblies are designed for effective liquid or solid retention in a wide range of applications including exchangers, clay, and sand filtration applications, carbon towers, and power plants with water systems.

Product Details

Wedge Wire Hub and Header Laterals are essential components divided into the Hub Radial Lateral Assembly and the Header Lateral Assembly. They facilitate the uniform distribution of water/liquid within a designated working area, adhering to hydraulic principles.

All Lateral Assemblies are meticulously crafted to ensure the effective retention of liquids or solids across various applications, including exchangers, clay and sand filtration systems, carbon towers, and water systems in power plants.

Wedge Wire Hub and Header Laterals is designed to promote uniform flow and prevent flow/pressure imbalances, each hub and header lateral comprises a series of screen laterals connected to a central header, ensuring consistent flow throughout vessels containing treatment media.

The screen laterals are easily removable and can be customized with either flange or threaded nipple connections for convenient installation.

Wedge Wire Hub and Header Laterals

Our Header and Hub-Lateral Systems are tailored to your specific design requirements, considering factors such as vessel diameter, volumetric flow rate, allowable pressure drop through the screen, type of resin or media to be retained, and minimum required open area. Collaboration with YUANLV during the design and engineering phase is crucial to accommodate all screen characteristics effectively.
