How many types of stainless steel wire mesh are there?
Plain weave is the most common type of weave, it is the most popular type of weaving, and it has an extremely wide range of applications. Plain weave means that each wire alternates - first under one wire and then over the next. Each warp (the line parallel to the length of the cloth) alternately passes above and below the line, passing through the cloth (filling line or ray) at an angle of 90 degrees.
Twill weave stainless steel mesh is woven by passing the weft above and below the two warp threads to create a stronger weave. This weaving allows the use of heavier wires, resulting in a stronger wire mesh. This type of weaving has a wide range of applications to support larger loads and finer filtration.
Pure Dutch weaving
Stainless steel mesh plain weave woven wire mesh is woven from two sizes of wire. Smaller wires, as small as micron, used in the weft direction, and woven with larger warp threads. The smaller wires are tightly woven together to provide a tight filter. Larger lines provide strength to the net. The primary use of such wire cloth is to filter and separate liquid and slurry products.
Twill Dutch weave
The twill Dutch woven stainless steel mesh combines Dutch and twill weave to provide a fine mesh filter cloth. The Shute wire passes over and under the two warp threads, providing a tight, fine filter with a tapered opening. The weaving process allows the use of very thin wires, up to micron size, to produce filters for gas and liquid applications.
