Support Grids

Available in one-piece or sectional design

Our support grids are available in a variety of framing options and designs, from one-piece construction to multiple sections. This allows for easy on-site assembly, retrofitting and transporting sections through existing manways. These self-supporting structures have exceptional resistance to collapsing and buckling, even in operations where screens must bear extremely high loads. Media support grids fabricated with Wedge Wire are a good choice when dealing with retaining media in vessels of all types.

Better in every way

Compared to wire mesh and perforated metal, Wedge Wire’s continuous slots have more open area. Their consistent slots are more durable and virtually non-clogging to reduce media abrasion.

Designed and manufactured

Our grids have great design flexibility and are constructed in a wide variety of shapes and sizes and from a variety of corrosion-resistant alloys. Specific processes and vessel requirements can be accommodated. For available corrosion-resistant materials, see material list.

Benefits of our support grids include:

  • Continuous-slot design provides an increased open area 

  • The continuous slot formed by V-shaped surface wires ensures a two-point contact between the particles and the slot to minimize clogging

  • Wide range of profile wires are available to suit most applications

  • High-precision slot sizes are available to meet your requirements

  • V-shaped surface wires allow for easy cleaning

  • Very low pressure drop

  • Additional supports are utilized to accommodate extreme load conditions

  • Low maintenance
