Please suggest  how best we can separate fine carbon and trash from slurry, as we are having old methodology like wedge wire screen.

You mentioned the media you are using, but not how it is being used. How are you using the profile wire media?  Fixed, rotating, vibrating, or some other way?

For fine size separation the use of profile/wedge wire screening media is probably one of the more efficient methods.  That said, how the screen media is mounted and used is also important, such as in a trommel (rotating) screen or high speed vibrating.

Hi smart dog, thank you..ours is fixed wedge wire screen. As you adviced I'm in search of trommel type screen.

Do you have more details on the fine carbon?  Do you have p80 on the carbon?  this would be useful to determine if it can be recovered effectively by the Wedgewire screens.

Density Separation might also be an option. Depending on the variables.  One of the common problems with screening is that you will also recover all your plastics and grit with the carbon as well.  If you want to process it those items can cause a lot of problems the ADR plant.
