What is a wedge wire screen?
Wedge wire screens are superior for retaining media, filtering, and sizing. In comparison with wire mesh and perforated metal, wedge wire continuous slot screens have a more open area, have very precise openings, are stronger and more durable, are virtually non-clogging, and reduce media abrasion.
Wire mesh and perforated metal may be less expensive initially, but wedge wire screens offer easier installation and long-term operating and cost benefits.
Wedge wire screens have maximum design flexibility, and can be constructed in a wide variety of shapes and sizes from a variety of corrosion-resistant alloys such as type 304, 316, 316L, 321,904L, and 410S stainless plates of steel.
Wedge wire screens are all-welded for strength:
Each intersection of rod and wire in a wedge wire screen is welded. The strength achieved by this method offers several vital benefits:
Reduced costs, since wedge wire screens have a very long life.
Greater resistance to stresses of differential pressure and temperature cycling.
Wedge wire is economical
The economy is achieved through the simple design, which results in a screen with low initial cost, minimum maintenance needs, and simplified installation.
Reduced Installation Costs:
Costly support media can be eliminated.
Components are easily assembled.
Reduced Operating Costs:
Non-clogging slot design results in a low head loss for lower operating costs.
Non-clogging slot design results in a reduction of downtime caused by plugged screens.
High strength and durability reduce the chance of screen failure and loss of media.
Reduced Maintenance Costs:
Due to the smooth surface and rigid construction, abrasion of media particles is eliminated, increasing the effective life of expensive media, and resulting in longer intervals between cleaning cycles.
Screens constructed with wedge wire have significantly greater durability than perforated metal and wire mesh.
