Wedge wire screen basket filter strainer solutions for papermaking screen

Papermakers need fiber, water, and some sort of sieve or screen. Screens might be made from cloth, bamboo, bronze, nylon mesh, hardware cloth, or heat-shrinking polypropylene. Whatever material is used, papermaking screens all achieve the same purpose, which is capturing fibers while letting water drain through.

The papermaking screen is the ‘essential tool of the papermaker.’

Look at the modern papermaking machine and you see similarities to the hand papermaking process using water, fiber, and a screen. 

Today, forming fabric is woven on high-speed, state-of-the-art looms with synthetic threads and weaving patterns designed to produce different kinds of paper. Wedge wire slot papermaking screens brought huge savings to the paper industry with screening that lasts longer and is easier to keep clean than metal.
