Welded Profile Wire Screens

Wedge wire can be fabricated flat or cylindrical. The triangular shaped wedge wire is welded to a support rod. The wedge wire can be spaced a fixed distance apart from adjacent wires to create slots as fine as .001". Since the slot created by the wedge wire is triangular, and inwardly enlarging, particles will not jam into the slot and instead pass freely through. Profile wire screens are used in the water filtration, food processing and mining industries. These screens can be fabricated as cylindrical screens or flat screens.

To figure percentage of open area use formula below:

% Open Area =
Slot Size
x 100
Slot Size + Wire Width
