Wire Mesh Industrial Zone of Anping County, Hebei Province, China.
Woven mesh filters are used primarily in commercial and industrial/OEM applications. In some applications the goal is to protect downstream components from particulate matter. In other cases, a wire cloth filter can be used toseparate, or screen one substance from another. Whether your specific application calls for removing unwanted contaminants from fluid or air,protecting expensive process equipment, or simply separating one material from another, Steellong can manufacture a custom wire mesh filter designed for your exact specifications.
Mesh tube are designed from three basic materials: wire cloth, expanded metal and perforated metal. Each material has its own flow rates and individual characteristics making it a “best fit” for particular engineering requirements.For example, perforated metals can be selected with round holes, square holes,or any other shape required based on size and or shape of the particulate thatneeds to be strained or filtered. Expanded metal and perforated metal filtersoffer superior rigidity and durability to wire cloth filters. For filters thatrequire intricate bends and pleats to achieve proper performance characteristics, and where durability is less of a concern, wire cloth filtersin mesh ranges from 2 x 2 to 5 micron mesh are the clear choice.
Woven wire media are generally available in a variety of weaves. Each hasslightly varying retention characteristics even at the same rating. Forexample, the opening in a square weave is as the name implies. However, theopening in twilled weave can be more triangular in shape. This will have someeffect on retention but the effect will be, for the most part, unmeasurable.When selecting woven wire media manufacturers experience will assist in determining the weave that displays the best strength, solids release and flow characteristics for each retention rating.
