The virtues of a Delta wedge wire screen are timeless.
Wedge wire screens have been around for more than a century for good reason. They offer a number of critical benefits over other conventional screening options like wire mesh and perforated plate.
Delta wedge wire screens - both cylindrical screens and flat screens - are manufactured by welding specially-shaped wire to support rods, thereby creating a continuous slot. The result is a screen that maximizes flow area, which, in turn, increases operating efficiencies and reduces downtime. Other benefits include:
Delta wedge wire screens are precision-welded at each rod and wire intersection for superior strength.
With an inwardly enlarging slot, particles are far less prone to plugging as compared to plate and mesh combinations.
With a continuous slot design, screen open area is maximized for reduced head loss and greater efficiency and throughput in media retention and filtration applications.
With its rigid, high-strength design, Delta wedge wire screens are a highly durable, long-lasting option for critical screening tasks.
