Wedge wire screens are particularly well matched to the requirements of high capacity filtration. These screens are self-cleaning, durable and reusable. Sieve bend (or curve screens) have the wedge wires oriented perpendicular to the flow direction which allows water to be collected when passing through screen, then the angle and flow allows the solids or branches to slide over the screen’s smooth surface. These screens can be applied in water treatments, dewatering systems and other water-solid separation applications as well. Flat screen panels are used in similar application as sieve bend screens.
