Dewatering screens are also known as sieve bend or curved screens. AMACS wedge wire type dewatering screens are designed to maximize capacity by using gravity and cross flow against the curved screen surface for removal of solids from a liquid process stream. Dewatering screens can be fabricated with most any slot opening, screen width or angle and are routinely mounted to a boxed style housing. Applications for dewatering screens include wastewater treatment, sewage treatment, agriculture, mining and food wastewater processing.
Wedge wire screens are also particularly well matched to the requirements of high capacity filtration since they are self-cleaning, durable and reusable. Sieve bend (or curved) screens orient the wedge wires perpendicular to the flow direction which allows water to drop through screen and be collected as wastewater while the angle and flow forces the solids (or branches) to slide over the smooth screen. This product is effective in wastewater treatment, dewatering systems and other similar solid separation applications as well. Flat screen panels are used in a similar application as sieve bend and in shakers for sewage separation systems.
