Wedge Wire Screes Provide Effective Impurities Filtration for Pharmaceutical Processes

Wedge wire screens are widely used in various industries because of their precision, durability, and corrosion resistance, making them suitable for demanding applications in pharmaceutical production and processing. They are used in the pharmaceutical industry for liquid filtration, solid-liquid separation, particle drying and sieving, product recovery and recycling. They are also important components in filter presses and catalytic reformers.

High-quality wedge wire screens can provide the pharmaceutical industry with quality control, cleanliness, and sterilization to maintain a high level of hygiene and product safety.

Applications
  • Centrifugal screens. In pharmaceutical centrifuges, solid and liquid separation is achieved through wedge wire screen baskets. This includes removing particles, impurities, and contaminants from liquid solutions or suspensions to ensure efficient and reliable material separation.
  • Drying and dehydration. Wedge wire screens can be used in pharmaceutical drying processes to remove excess moisture from solid particles, thereby maintaining products stability and extending their shelf life.
  • Crystallization and precipitation. In drug crystallization and precipitation processes, wedge wire screens are used to separate crystals or precipitates from the mother liquor, which contributes to the separation and purification of active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs).
  • Tablet coating. In tablet manufacturing, wedge wire screens can be used in tablet coating equipment to separate and recover excess coating materials, thus reducing waste and improving efficiency.
  • Biotechnology applications. In biopharmaceutical and biotechnology processes, wedge wire screens are used for filtration and clarification of cell cultures, fermentation broths, and downstream processing steps.
