Industrial Wedge Wire Screen Filter Products and Benefits

Jan. 09, 2023

Industrial processes and applications are numerous and complex. Filtration is the key process in industrial processes. What do you do when you have a filtration or screening application that is highly specific and no traditional solution seems to work?  Below, we will discuss wedge wire screen filter products, their benefits, as well as what applications can utilize them.

What is a Wedge Wire Industrial Screen?

Industrial Wedge wire screens are made by wrapping “V” shaped profile wire around longitudinal support ribs. All the wires and ribs are resistance welded at each contact point to create a structurally sound plug-resistant surface. The numerous combinations allowed by wedge wire screens allow for exact matches to technical specifications. 

Wedge wire screens are screens used for the separation and filtration of liquid/gas, food, water waste, and mining materials. They are capable of separating solids from liquids and are commonly used for sizing, filtering, retaining media, de-watering, distribution, and collection.

Types of Industrial Wedge Wire Screen Filter products

Hub and Header LateralsThese screens may be used for disc head vessels that need the system to completely collect to the vessel bottom. Header lateral design can also be used in flat-bottom vessel distributor or collector applications. Screens can accommodate side, center, top, or bottom inlet piping. Hub and header laterals can also come with integral backwash systems for fast and effective cleaning. Systems can be designed for liquid or solid retention for applications including exchangers, clay and sand filtration applications, carbon towers, and power plants with water systems.

Nozzles filter StrainersRetention nozzles can be made to flow requirements in almost any alloy. They can be designed for filtration or treatment systems to permit more use of the media. Non-clogging wedge wire nozzles are used in water treatment and other industrial applications, such as under-drain media retention elements, flow distributors in demineralizers, water softeners in pressure, and gravity sand filters. They may also be used as bottom vessel collectors across a tray plate with a high open area and non-plugging design.

Sieve Bend and Flat ScreenThose who need high-capacity filtration will enjoy this Sieve Bend and Flat Screen because the screens are also durable, reusable, and self-cleaning. Sieve Bend screens can allow water to drop through the screen for collection while the angle and flow allow solids to slide over. These screens are ideal for wastewater treatment, dewatering, and sewage separation systems.

Resin Trap ScreensThe screens are generally placed in housing that is in line with the flow to keep expensive media from flowing downstream. Traps may be designed to capture particles of any size with a sufficient open area to let the process flow smoothly.
