Wedge Wire Filter Elements
Wedge wire filter element also named wedge wire screen is made of V-shape profile wire and support rods. Each intersecting point of these wires is fusion welded which makes it has sturdy construction and good mechanical property. The profile wire and support rod can be axial wire or radial wire. The precisely spaced narrow slot openings between V-shaped wire only allow two-point particle contact. The larger solids accumulate on the solid surface to produce a “cake” that provides filtration for finer particulate. Finer particles that pass through the cake do not get stuck in the slots. Wedge wire filters offer almost endless cleanability via backwashing. By reversing the flow, the cake and filtered particles are removed.
