Long lasting

The combination of high quality materials, accurate slots and maximum open areas ensures that we provide our customers an optimum design for low wear characteristics resulting in longer service life.

Our baskets can commonly be seen used in applications where perforated baskets do not provide sufficient open area and where mesh weave baskets are not suitable for the required pressure differential making wedge wire baskets a great option.

These wedge wire screen baskets are typically used in mineral processing for coal, potash, salt, sand, pulp, paper and a variety of chemicals processes. They are also used for refuse removal from oil and gas drillers. These baskets are offered in several different construction types including Reverse Form, Reverse Axial and inverted wrap. (See construction page for more details).

  • Stronger and more durable

  • Basket flanges are machined for a perfect fit and can employ an O-ring for optimal seal performance if necessary
