Flat Strainers

Oil refinery adsorption applications and extraction towers

Drainage, fiber recovery, fractionation

Flat wedgewire plates are often used in drainage applications such as wastewater treatment or final fiber recovery from waste liquor streams. AFT produces wedgewire plates to specified slot widths in overall sizes that are manageable for the customer. Plates are normally supplied as large panels (flat or curved) with a self-contained support structure, and can be custom-fitted to customer needs.

Our precision slotted milled strainers are used in petroleum fractionation towers and in paper mill continuous digesters. The plate and slots are manufactured to an exact specification for slot width and open area. Materials of construction vary according to process requirements and customer needs.
