Wedge wire screen filer elements are made of stainless steel wedge wire screen. Filter rating is from 30 to 80 microns. Wedge wire screen is welded onto rods with stainless steel wedge wire at every contact point. They are classified into filer sheet, filter basket and filter elements. They have such characteristics as good strength, high ridity, resistance to abrasion and corosion, even gap, good in filtration and fluidity, easy to clean and back wash.
Application Wedge wire screen filter elements are used in sieving of petroleum, chemical industy, pharmaceutics, food and beverage, metalurgy and coal, also can be used in fitration of water treatment.
Wedge wire is a welded steel structure, mainly used for filtration, separation and retention media.
It consists of surface profiles, usually V-shaped, that are resistance welded onto support profiles. The distance between the surface profiles is controlled very accurately, as it forms the slot through which the filtrate flows.
