Champion Screens offer largest range of V wire Filters also known as Filters with vee shaped slot or wedge wire filters.
V wire filter is a welded steel structure, mainly used for filtration, separation and retention media.
It consists of surface profiles, usually V-shaped, that are resistance welded onto support profiles. The distance between the surface profiles is controlled very accurately, as it forms the slot through which the filtrate flows.
V wire has the following advantages:
· Non-clogging: the continuous slot formed by the V-shaped surface wires ensures a two-point contact between the particles and the slot, which minimizes clogging.
· High-precision slot sizes: precise slot sizes are available to meet customer´s requirements.
· Surface filtration: the V-shaped surface wires allow easy cleaning by mechanical scraping or back flushing.
· Low pressure-drop
Strong construction: for most applications, the wedge wire screen is self-supporting, because of the welding at each intersection.
The unsurpassed flatness of Champion screen surfaces and roundness of Champion slot tubes and baskets are the key to optimal performance and extended lifetime of your wedge wire filter elements. The flexibility in design and production techniques enable us to produce a state-of-the-art product covering your specific needs.
Champion V wire filter elements are resistant to extreme pressure and temperature variances as well as corrosion due to their inherent high mechanical stability, and the variety of stainless steel and exotic alloys that can be applied in the production of a tailor-made filtration product.
They are an excellent alternative to the traditional perforated plate and woven wire filter products.
