Wedge wire, or as it’s sometimes referred to, profile bar, is primarily used in the manufacture of screens.
It is categorized as a type of screen wire because it belongs to a family of shapes that are used to manufacture screens, which are used in a wide variety of applications.
The product has a triangular shape that varies in height, width, and radius on both the nose and corners. Material, shape, and surface requirements differ based on what application the screen will be used in.
Screens themselves are used in a wide variety of industries. Some common end uses are water filtration, mineral processing, pulp and paper manufacturing, food processing, oil extraction as well as in architectural applications. Screen forms may vary as well, coming in flats, cylinders, and basket forms depending on the functionality of the end-use.
