Wedge Wire Filter Elements: High Strength, High Pressure, Cleanable

SWIFTWEDGE™ wedge wire filter elements are ideal for many challenging filtration applications. Their design provides:

  • Optimum structural strength for heavy loads
  • Minimal plugging and blinding
  • High pressure/pulsating pressure capability
  • Corrosive application suitability
  • Thermal resistance
  • Long-life — almost endless cleanability
  • Sterile application / food industry suitability
  • Low pressure drop
  • High flow rate

High Performance Filtration for Many Applications

If your process involves any aspect of fluid/solid separation, we have the products and experience to help you achieve maximum efficiency and effectiveness.

  • Filtration
  • Separation
  • Straining

Industries That Can Benefit From Wedge Wire Filtration

  • Pulp and paper
  • Chemical
  • Petrochemical
  • Automotive
  • Mineral and aggregate processing
  • Plastics extrusion
  • Adhesive/sealant filtration
  • Coatings
  • Other highly viscous fluids in many industries

Stainless steel wedge wire acreens are welded at each intersection of V-shaped surface wire and support rod for optimum structural strength.

The precisely spaced narrow slot openings between V-shaped wire only allow two-point particle contact. The larger solids accumulate on the solid surface to produce a "cake" that provides filtration for finer particulate. Finer particles that pass through the cake do not get stuck in the slots.

Wedge wire filters offer almost endless cleanability via backwashing. By reversing the flow, the cake and filtered particles are removed.
