When it comes to the filtration world there are endless types of materials you can use: metal, paper, fiber, polymer, ceramic, etc. All of these different materials can be formed or treated differently depending on your application or your specific filtration needs.
And the wedge wire and wove wire are common materials but do you know
These two metals can seem very similar to the naked eye but they are truly very different. Both have their pros and cons depending on what type of application you are using it for and what your needs are.
Wedge wire usually proves to be more easily cleaned due to a surface structure that is a bit smoother than woven wire mesh.
There is also a bit less risk of damaging the material when cleaning with wedge wire than with woven wire.
Wedge wire is going to take the win on the strength
The more delicate nature and finer wires within woven wire mesh could lead to a shorter service life when compared to wedge wire.
Wedge wire will typically be a bit more expensive than woven wire mesh fabrication.
