Federal Screen wedge wire baskets are manufactured using high quality stainless steel wedge wire and custom made frames / bodies. Our unique basket designs in combination with our specially selected wedge wire profiles for the specific application and stringent manufacturing standards allows us to produce a top quality product that is built to perform.
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. The cost of the combination perforated with mesh lined baskets is at times not very economical. The design of the baskets are also suitable for new or existing bodies / housings and can be engineered for various flow directions and serve as centrifugal liners which require external supports.
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).
