The wedge wire screen is a metal mesh element widely used in screening, filtration, dehydration, and declining operations for sieving and filtration. It has high strength, rigidity, and load carrying capacity and can be made into a variety shape of rigid screening filters.
The wedge wire screen consists of surface profiles and support profiles. Surface profiles, usually v-shaped wires, are wrapped and welded onto support profiles. The distance between the surface profiles is controlled very accurately, as it forms the slot through which the filtrate flows. The direction of the flow is determined by the position of V-shaped wires (surface profiles) in relation to the support profiles. Wedge wires screens are either flow-out-to-in or flow-in-to-out.
So wedge wire screen can be filter and backwashing, that it can be easy cleaning and makes it free from regular replacement and maintenance.
Such as follow
Its uniform filter slots and high precision ensure the effective retention of the filter medium.
A wedge wire screen has a larger circulation area compared with other screens.
The tiny gaps between wedge wires form a smooth wedge-shaped cross-section, which makes sure no dead ends, excellent resistance to block, and easy to backwash.
It has high mechanical strength and can withstand a high-pressure drop.
It is made of superior stainless steel wires (304 316and 316L) with strong corrosion resistance and high-temperature resistance performances and can totally adapt to a various harsh environment
It adapts to different forms of fluid direction with high strength, large flow, and high-pressure resistance performance.
It maintains stable filtration accuracy and can be reused repeatedly and work reliably.
Besides, the wedge wire screen is suitable for high precision filtration, It's Filtration accuracy, structural strength and pressure drop resistance meet all requirements so that has a long service life.
UBOW adopts international advanced welding technology, which has considerable advantages in terms of surface smoothness, gap uniformity and product quality, thus ensuring our products perform better quality and higher efficiency in use!
