Cleaning knowledge of stainless steel wedge wire


Stainless steel is the main material used to make a wedge wire filter plate. Proper maintenance can extend the service life of the product and maximize its value.

How to clean and maintain stainless steel wedge wire screen?

Here is a brief introduction to help you learn more about the cleaning and maintenance of stainless steel products.

Many people think that stainless steel never rusts. In fact, stainless steel does have good corrosion resistance. But if we don’t maintain it properly, it will rust.
The reason is that a passive film is formed on the surface, which is essentially in the form of a more stable oxide. In other words, stainless steel is oxidized according to different service conditions and different oxidation levels. This phenomenon is often called corrosion.

In the passive film on the surface of the stainless steel wedge wire sieve plate, a pitting reaction is formed due to a self-excited reaction, which leads to the formation of small holes. In addition, chloride ions are close to each other and form a strong corrosive solution, thus accelerating the corrosion reaction rate. Intergranular corrosion cracks still exist in stainless steel wedge wire sieve plate.
All cracks will damage the passive film on the wedge wire mesh panel. Therefore, the stainless steel surface must be cleaned regularly to maintain its beautiful appearance and prolong its service life.

Cleaning stainless steel wedge wire sieve plate is a complex task. The following cleaning steps are recommended:

You need to prepare a soft towel or wet towel. Choose to buy professional stainless steel detergents, such as weak detergent, organic solvent, or special detergent.
Use a soft towel to wipe the surface of the stainless steel wedge wire screen board, and use a slightly wet towel to repeatedly wipe until there is no obvious trace on the surface.
If there is dust on the surface of stainless steel wedge wire mesh panel, alcohol, weak detergent or organic solvent (ether, benzene) can be added in warm water, and then wipe repeatedly with a slightly wet towel until there is no trace on the surface.
If the surface of the stainless steel wedge wire screen panel is contaminated by oil or lubricant, please clean it with neutral detergent, ammonia, or special detergent. Then wash immediately with clean water.
Finally, wipe with a clean towel. Long-term accumulation of stains will increase the difficulty of cleaning.

Therefore, we should develop the habit of cleaning stainless steel wedge wire screen plates regularly to reduce the difficulty of cleaning.
In addition, as the surface of the stainless steel wedge wire screen plate is easy to be scratched by metal, please be careful not to use steel balls or other similar tools to clean the surface.

Bluslot not only has stainless steel wedge wire filter plate, but also has various types of filter tubes, screen cylinders, stainless steel water filter nozzles, water distributors, and sintered filter elements, which can meet the needs of filtration and screening in the chemical industry, petroleum, water treatment, liquor making, paper making, nuclear power plant, and other industries.
