Benefits of Wedge Wire

When it comes to brewing or distilling, wedge wire screens are the preferred, state-of-the-art construction for false bottoms. The unique “V” profile of the wire components ensures that solids stay where they belong — while enabling filtration and proper flow for easy extraction for recirculation, turbidity testing and, eventually, boiling. With wedge wire, clogging is much less likely to occur, meaning that all steps of the lautering process can be carried out efficiently and with minimal need for adjustments or in-process maintenance by staff.

Wedge wire is also the simplest type of lauter screen construction to clean and maintain. Further, it can be easily manufactured in sections to allow for simple addition and removal — whether for maintenance or manway access.

In terms of materials, stainless steel is an ideal choice for lautering screens for several reasons:

  • Strength
  • Food/beverage grade approval
  • Ability to be easily cleaned
  • Durability

2- Large opening area.
3- Fast flow rate.
4- Stable gap size.
