Frequently asked questions
What is a wedge wire screen
A wedge wire screen, also called a wedge screen, is a multi-functional screen that provides clogging (pegging) resistance. Also called profile wire (or v wire screen filter in some industries), it consists of a metal mesh element encased in a profile and is used in screening, filtration, dehydration, and desliming applications.
Characterized by wedge wire mesh with high strength, high rigidity, and high load carrying capacity, they are manufactured in a variety of shapes and often custom-manufactured to suit specific design requirements.
What is a profile wire?
As these screen products rely on profiles for their effectiveness, they are also called a profile wire screen and, depending on the industry, a profile wire is called a tri-wire.
It can be constructed of various materials, but in the mineral processing industry, they are usually manufactured from durable stainless steel or 430 stainless steel. This ensures wire longevity, even in abrasive and corrosive environments.
What are wedge wire screen filters?
In the mineral processing industry, wedge wire filter screens need to withstand abrasive and corrosive applications. Both vibrating and static wedge wire screens can be used.
When selecting a wedge wire screen for your mineral processing applications, the following factors should be considered:
Does it offer precise, maintainable sizing?
Does the drainage area suit your exact requirements?
Does it provide sufficient abrasive & corrosion resistance?
Are the release angles appropriate for your application requirements?
Does its construction & arrangement facilitate minimal pegging?
