It excels in giving problem-free processing and is easily cleanable with excellent durability.
In addition to superior mechanical strength, it possesses a higher beat stability than any other material. It shows an extremely high resistance to physical and chemical effects.
It is thus an ideal filter medium which can be easily worked and styled using available techniques.
In addition to the socalled open wire weaves with square or rectangular openings which can be woven down to a fineness of 20 m aperture, there are many combinations of filterweaves with retention in the micron range.
Woven wire cloth specifications are exact geometrical structures with uniform porosity, in contrast to fibrous felts made from paper, synthetic fibers or metal yarns.
Filter weaves made from metal wires are used for separation of solids and clear filtration of liquids, as in the cleaning of fuels or hydraulic liquids, or in water treatment.
