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).

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