Wedge wire screens are initially manufactured as cylinders with the slots and wires running radial around the outside and support rods internal and axial. In each application, every intersection of wedge wire and support rod is welded for strength. Various wire and support rod sizes can be used to produce screen designs for your particular application.
Wedge wire screen cylinders can be manufactured in almost unlimited height and diameter.
ApplicationOur stainless steel cylinders can be used in food processing, wastewater filtration, pulp, and paper as well as mineral processing applications. Wedge wire or profile screen half-cylinders can be added to an auger or screw press to separate solids from liquids in food, wastewater, minerals, and industrial grit/chips from the coolant.
Compared with the wedge wire screen tube/pipe, the wedge wire screen cylinder has some similarities and differences. The similarity of wedge wire screen cylinder and wedge wire screen tube
1. They are all manufactured from stainless steel wire, including triangle surface profiles, round, rectangular, triangle, and wedge wire support profiles.
2. They are produced on machines, in which the support profiles are welded onto surface profiles when the surface profiles are winding.
The difference of wedge wire screen cylinder and wedge wire screen tube
1. Wedge wire screen cylinder has larger diameters than the wedge wire screen tube. This makes the wedge wire screen cylinder can be used in large machines and applications.
2. Wedge wire screen cylinder has a higher load capacity than the wedge wire screen tube. The wedge wire screen cylinder is commonly used in heavy-duty applications and maintains a long service life.
