Filtration

Filtration

Knitted wire mesh has a unique interlocking asymmetrical wire loop structure that offers many advantages over other materials for air and liquid filtration and mist elimination or de-misting. Our knitting processes produce materials that when layered, spiral wound or compressed, create a tortuous path that is highly effective for both particle capture and the elimination of entrained materials and droplets in fluid flows, whilst exhibiting minimal pressure drop.

Properties

By careful selection of wire type, diameter, density and shape, it is possible to overcome the challenging filtration problems that other materials find difficult to handle. We are able to knit mesh from any metal, mineral or man-made filament and yarn.

The resulting mesh can then be processed further into a wide variety of forms including: mesh rolls, shaped and layered pads, framed filters and compressed elements, that offer a filter solution for virtually any application or environmental condition.

The flexibility and resilience of knitted mesh enables it to withstand thermal shock and vibration without fracturing. This provides considerable advantages over paper and sintered filters and permits a tight interference fit within housings without the need for close tolerance machining.

Compressed elements exhibiting minimal pressure drop and excellent post-compression recovery characteristics can be manufactured cost-effectively due to the relatively low tooling costs associated with knitted mesh products.

Thermal & Shock Resistance In Wire Mesh Filters

The flexibility of knitted mesh enables the material to withstand thermal shock and vibration without breaking up. This provides considerable advantages over paper and sintered filters and also permits a tight interference fit within housings without machining to close tolerances. Low-cost tooling enables the production of compressed elements that give a minimal pressure drop and also excellent recovery characteristics after compression.
