The production of industrial screens has an exciting process. We get industrial screens when the “V” shaped wires are welded into various shapes and sizes of support rods. In the production process of industrial screens, a slit is create that is inwardly enlarged, creating a considerably long clog-resistant surface and open area. An industrial screen that has exceptional ruggedness, resistance to abrasion, durability, slot opening, and consistency is the one with the highest quality.
Typically, the screens are used for two purposes:
- Direct Screening
- Filter Media Support (catalysts, resins, activated carbon, sand bed)
The slot opening of the industrial screen is available in various sizes. It typically ranges between 25 μm and 0.984 in (almost 25 mm). Usually, the industrial screens are made using the 300 series of stainless steel and other extrinsic alloys that help achieve specific applications.
We can find industrial screens in various shapes. You will widely see cylindrical, conical, and flat or curve panel shapes. It can also be produce in any form, particularly for a specific application. The versatility offer allows custom screen manufacturing which helps in various applications such as new plants, expansions, or upgrades.
Maximum efficiency and effectiveness are achieve for the industrial screen when separating the solid, fluid, or liquid. The characteristics of industrial screens, such as design flexibility, strength, and precision, make them an excellent choice across various industries worldwide. A few industries that use industrial screens are:
- Plastics extrusion
- Machine coolant filtration
- Water supply
- Mineral and aggregate processing
- Chemical Architectural
- Water and wastewater
- Pulp and paper
Various applications of industrial screens include:
- Fish diversion
- Media retention
- Water intake
For the production of industrial screens, the standard welding construction that uses resistance welding is use. The process is carry out in a constant elliptical motion to further join it with wires, rods, etc. As it keeps circulating, the resistance weld drives the continuous length of wire to the rod. Various formations can be made out of these screens such as curve, flat, or cylindrical. Any variation in the size of rod and wire and slot opening can be prefer to produce the customize type of industrial screen that matches your expectations.
The industrial screen is also produce using looped wire construction. The screens made using this format have various applications as well. Using loop wire construction rejects the need for welding for wire and rod joining purposes. It also significantly increases the factors such as the durability of the screen in most applications. There is also increase flexibility in the industrial screen, which allows the production of diverse profile shapes, short member configurations, and openings, etc.
The benefits of industrial screens arising due to their design and manufacturing characteristics are:
- High flow rates
- Easy cleaning
- Low-pressure drop
- Hydraulic efficiency
- Large open area
- Mechanical strength
- Non-clogging surface
The sturdy and compact characteristics of industrial screens make them easily adaptable in any area. The industrial screens have also achieve the balance of strength, abrasion resistance, separation & dewatering efficiency, and optimum open space due to its versatility of the shapes of wires and rods.
