Intake Screens

Intake ScreensWedge Tech is a major manufacturer of high quality wedge wire Intake Screens. Wedge Tech custom designs and manufactures for all types of industrial facilities requiring intake water, including hydroelectric, coal, gas, oil and chemical plants, pulp and paper mills.

Intake screens have no moving parts, and are constructed from corrosion resistant materials, ensuring a long service life. These screens offer passive screening admitting water through the intake point at a low and uniform velocity.

Flow rates are very nearly uniform over the entire screen surface, and we calculate the optimum size for the required flow volume so that flow velocities are low. High open area percentages provide minimum head loss.

Precise slot sizes are available to meet system and site conditions.

Screens can be fabricated with slot openings from 0.5mm to 20mm in 0.05mm increments.

In any form of industry where an effective method of filtering either a high or low-density liquid is needed, we can engineer a solution in either 304 or 316 grade stainless steel, with the necessary attachments to suit your requirements.
