Discover KnitMesh Technologies’ Compressed Filters

KnitMesh Technologies’ Compressed Filters are a cutting-edge product designed to provide efficient filtration solutions across various industries. These filters are crafted by die compressing metallic knitted wire meshes, typically in circular or annular shapes, though customisation to other shapes is also possible.

One of the key features of KnitMesh Technologies’ Compressed Filters is their versatility in terms of free volumes, ranging from 30% to 95%, and available wire gauges. This flexibility allows for tailored solutions to meet specific filtration requirements. The thickness of these filters typically falls within the 1mm to 25mm range, with the possibility of increased thickness through stacking layers.

In comparison to sintered metal filters, KnitMesh Technologies’ Compressed Filters offer a more cost-effective alternative without compromising on performance. These filters exhibit superior durability, remaining intact even under conditions of vibration or impact, providing a reliable and long-lasting filtration solution.

The manufacturing process of KnitMesh Technologies’ Compressed Filters involves special techniques to ensure uniform density throughout the filter. Additionally, the implementation of statistical process control (SPC) in long production runs guarantees product consistency and quality. The cost-efficient nature of tooling and the availability of existing stock allow for rapid production of representative samples for quick evaluation.

How Knitted Wire Mesh Boosts Filtration Efficiency

In industrial processes where the filtration of liquids and gases is crucial, having the right materials can significantly impact efficiency and overall quality. One material that has proven to be highly effective in boosting filtration efficiency is knitted wire mesh.

Knitted wire mesh is specifically designed to provide superior filtration capabilities. Its unique structure, created by interlocking wire in a precise pattern, results in a high surface area with tiny spaces or pores. These characteristics make knitted wire mesh ideal for capturing impurities and contaminants during the filtration process.

The key to its efficiency lies in the precise control of pore size and density. This ensures that particles of various sizes are effectively captured, making it a reliable solution for microfiltration needs. This ability to capture contaminants with a high capture rate makes knitted wire mesh an efficient choice for a wide range of industrial filtration applications.

Furthermore, knitted wire mesh is highly customisable, allowing for tailored solutions to meet specific filtration requirements. It can be manufactured using different metals such as stainless steel, copper, and aluminium, making it suitable for diverse industrial needs.
