TheContinuous slot Well screenis manufactured by wrapping a profile wire cylindrical around
longitudinal placed support rods creating a V-shaped nonclogging
Depending on the type of wire used and the slot opening, the open
area of awedge wire screencan vary between 10% and 70% of the total area.
The average opening area of a water well screen varies from 35% to
45% compared with 5% to 15% on average of a other screens (e.g.
perforated or bridge screen). In the case of support grids, the
filtering area can be up to a 70% of total area, depending on the
material used and the slot.
The continuos slot water screen has several advantages compared to
other screens such as bridge slot screen or perforated screen. A
larger opening (filtering) area of a wedge wire screen leads to
superior performance of a water well compared against the
installation of other types of screens. Moreover a wedgewire filter
for water well are self-cleaning (go-no go), thus, prevents losses
due to friction as well as losses associated with pumping sand.
Also, a continuous slot wedgewire water well screen eliminate the
problems associated with fine sands, thus, increasing the life of
the pumping equipment.
