Wedge wire screen
The ‘wedge wire screens’ manufactured by Costacurta are called VICO-Screens: these filtering elements are generally made of V-section wires, arranged in a parallel way and welded to support rods with a trapezoidal, round or flat shape. They can be made with wires and support rods of different shapes, sizes and materials in order to resist different levels of corrosion and abrasion.
The main features of the VICO-Screens are high tensile strength, large open area, low tendency to clogging. They are designed to retain materials, for filtering and for sieving.
