Wedge wire lateral assemblies also called header lateral assemblies, Header lateral systems consist of a series of screen laterals attached to either a central header or hub. The assemblies allow process engineers to design for uniform flow through the treatment media at a wider range of rates and for a variety of vessel sizes and shapes.
The wedge wire screen lateral has two types: threaded ending wedge wire screen lateral and flange ending wedge wire screen lateral. Threaded ending wedge wire screen laterals are composed of a solid cap on one end and a threaded pipe connection on the other end. The flange ending wedge wire screen lateral is composed of a solid cap on one end and a flange. The different designs make it possible to suit different applications and machines.
The lateral system consists of a series of screen laterals connected to either a central header pipe or a hub. They are designed for effective media retention in a wide range of applications, including ion exchangers, clay and sand filtration applications, carbon towers, etc. Various header systems are available to suit your application, specific vessel diameter, flow rate, and media size. We can fabricate a new system or replace an existing one.
