WELDED WEDGE WIRE PROFILES –
SB AND SBB

The SB and SBB wire are the most commonly used profiles. They provide the lowest resistance to passing liquids and fine particles, thus helping to prevent potential pegging.

Screen Systems manufactures a large range of SB and SBB profiles. The vast range of wire profiles are made available in a variety of stainless steels grades – 304 grade being the most common.

LOOPED WEDGE WIRE SCREENS

Wedge Wire is made from round wire which is first looped at regularly pitched intervals and then pressed into a deep wedge shaped section.

The loops themselves are pressed so as to produce at each side accurately sized spacing shoulders which butt together when the wires are assembled.

CASE STUDY – WEDGE WIRE CYLINDER

Screen Systems have recently completed a project for a wedge wire cylinder used as a separator in a drainage channel in a food factory. The cylinder was created at 126mm long and 56mm O/D, made with Stainless steel 316L. It was open at both ends to be used as a separator in a drainage channel in a food factor.
