It is a multipurpose screen with toughness and clogging resistance made by arranging “wedge wires” in a triangular shape at equal intervals to form slits/slots (mesh) suitable for the application. Regardless of industry or location, it is utilized for filtration, solid-liquid separation, classification, dewatering, concentration, and more.
Resistance welding V-shaped wire on support rods creates wedge wire screens. The highest-grade raw wire is used to create the wedge wire screen used in wedge wires screening, which is then cut, shaped, constructed, and cleaned.
Depending on your application needs, the wedge wire can be ordered as a raw screen material or as a finished product. Federal Screen can provide accurate flow distribution and excellent media, debris, and sediment filtration to its customers because of its pinpoint control over the slot parameters. Support Rods running perpendicular to the wrap wire reinforce and preserve the screen’s appropriate design arrangement, allowing it to withstand high pressures.
The Wedge Wire Screen is used to manage various processing parameters such as volumetric flow rate, minimum dimensional media retention, minimum open area, and fluid pressure capabilities.
Featured of Wedge Wire Screen
The Wedge Wire Screen’s “triangle form” means that as solids travel through, minor points and slits get enlarged, making particles less likely to clog and, even if they do, there is an intense backwashing action, resulting in good maintainability.
High Strength and Durability:
- It is feasible to create a screen with a wire diameter more significant than the slit.
- The degree of wear is constant due to the smooth screen surface.
- Stainless steel is the standard material (SUS304, 316L).
As a result, Wedge Wire Screen has greater strength and longevity than filters such as wire mesh, perforated plates, or filter cloths. They can be used virtually eternally without replacement depending on the usage environment and material, lowering operating expenses. Furthermore, we can make Wedge Wire Screen out of exotic materials like titanium or duplex stainless steel.
Broad Flexibility in Design:
Due to the numerous processing options available, wedge Wire screens can be made in various shapes, including flat, cylindrical, and conical.
What is the definition of a profile wire?
Because these screen devices rely on profiles for their efficiency, they’re also known as profile wire screens, and a profile wire is also known as a tri-wire, depending on the industry.
It can be made of various materials, but in the mineral processing industry, durable stainless steel or 430 stainless steel is typically used. Even in harsh and corrosive situations, this assures wire longevity.
About Wedge wire screen filters
Wedge wire filter screens in the mineral processing industry must be able to endure abrasive and corrosive environments. Wedge wire screens, both vibrating and static, can be employed.
The following factors should be checked while choosing a wedge wire screen for your mineral processing applications:
- Is the sizing precise and repeatable?
- Is the drainage area adequate for your needs?
- Does it have enough abrasion and corrosion resistance?
- Are the release angles appropriate for the needs of your application?
- Is it designed and arranged in such a way that little pegging is possible?
These are some pointers about the wedge wire screens that can help you get to know about the product more precisely.
