Wedge wire run down screens offer a high capacity, cost effective, highly efficient method of solids/liquid separation utilising stainless steel wire as the screening medium.
Each unit is designed to suit the specific requirements of the customer and application to enable a highly effective solution for separation.
Consisting of a basic outer casing, which can be maufactured in mild steel or stainless steel, each unit incorporates a distribution chamber and feed weir, over which the effluent passes onto the wedge wire panel which is set at right angles to the material flow to enable the seperating process to commence.
The separated solids collect on the lower half of the screen to drain and compact. They then slide by gravity onto a solids discharge chute. The extracted liquid passes through the wedge wire into an underflow collecting chamber, with a disposal outlet for either re-circulation or discharge.
