Wedge Wire Fabrication

Wedge wire is a welded steel structure, mainly used for filtration, separation and retention media. Hall Pyke can offer fabrication of sheets or tubes of wedge wire for applications such as run down screens, in-line strainers for pump and nozzle protection, mash filtration, dewatering and many other bespoke designs. 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: Precise slot sizes are available to meet customer 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.
  • High differential pressure: because the profiles are welded at every point of contact the wedge wire can work at very high differential pressures and can withstand a lot of abuse during washing and handling.
