Wedgewire panels have a high open area by comparison with woven wire screen media. Supplied in mainly flat forms or curved panel forms. High opening screen gives lower entrance velocities and higher flow rates through the screen. In the case of pump in-taking screens, pumping costs are lower.
The panels have continuous slot openings that widen inwardly. This makes the screen self-cleaning by allowing "near slot size" particles to pass through the screen rather than plug the opening. And the products are made by continuously winding a wrap wire onto a frame of support rods. This is done on precision built, electronically controlled machinery which ensures consistently high strength, precise slot openings and product durability.

Curved panel (rolled) wedge wires are utilized as conveyor and auger screening media in dewatering and draining applications. Wedgewire conveyor screens usually have axial wires and are half cylinders. Other configurations are also produced.
Flat panel screen can be parts of deep well pumps or submersible pumps; can be used for water treatment equipment, environment protection, the sea water desalination, water softening treatment, oil and chemical processing; terminal filtration for petroleum products, filtration for chemical acid and soda liquid, for alcohol and other organic solvents recycle filtration.
