Crimped wire screen
Crimped wire screen are typically applied to make coarse separations ahead of the degerminators and in multistage germ washing. The system uses a Vee-Wire dewatering screen to retain the solids while allowing effluent to run through the system. The slurry is gravity fed to the head box and flows to the screen. The solids retained from the screen gather for disposal or reuse.
Crimped wire screen are cross-flow screens. The profile wires are slightly tilted so that the leading edge is position higher which greatly increases the dewatering capacity.
Crimped wire screen consists of a concave curved profile wire screen mounted in a frame with the screen openings perpendicular to the flow. A curved screen has greater capacity than a flat wedge screen due to forces exerted as material flows against the curved surface.
Application of Crimped wire screen
They are used in industries such as Sugar, Coal Mining & Quarrying, Mineral Processing, Cement, and Industrial & Urban Effluent Treatment etc. Sieve bend screens are also used as a pre-filter in urban & industrial waste treatment plants to improve the performance of the clarifier by drastically reducing the load. Widely used for fiber removal in Starch industry.
