The Advantages of Wedge Wire

2019-11-14Tags:Wedge Wire Pipe Filtration,Posted By zhaozhao

Wedge wire  products has the following advantages:


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.

In case of V-shaped surface profiles conical slots are created (as shown on figure).

Filtrations Direction

The direction of the flow is determined by the position of the surface profiles in relation to the support profiles. Wedge wire screens are either flow-out-to-in (FOTI) or flow-in-to-out (FITO)


Wedge wire has the following advantages:

Non-clogging: the continuous slot formed by the V-shaped surface wires ensures a two-point contact between the particles and the slot, which minimizes clogging.

High-precision slot sizes: slot sizes are available to meet customer´s requirements.

Surface filtration: the V-shaped surface wires allow easy cleaning by mechanical scraping or back flushing.

Low pressure-drop

Strong construction: for most applications, the wedge wire screen is self-supporting, because of the welding at each intersection.
