Woven wire cloth with its wide range of materials and weave patterns is an ideal medium for strainers and filters. Using available techniques, it can be worked and formed to exact filter requirements, combining durability, strength and reliability.
The most common properties used to specify wire cloth include material, mesh count, wire diameter and weave.
The metal or alloy used in the wire to determine its resistance to corrosion, abrasion, heat and vibration.
The diameter of the wire before weaving.
Refers to the number of openings per linear inch. The mesh is counted by starting from the center of one wire and counting the number of openings to a point one inch distant.
The pattern in which the wires running crosswise (Shute Wires) and the wires running lengthwise.
Perforated and Expanded metal sheets are frequently used in the fabrication of strainers and filters in applications where a more rugged characteristic is required. Both can also be used as a support layer for a finer mesh strainer. A multi-layer configuration combines mechanical strength with a high degree of filtration in a turbulent or large volume application.
Stainless steel, galvanized, carbon steel, brass, etc
Thickness of the material
Perforation or opening size and shape and their arrangement
