We offer weave types and materials.
Plain Weave

This is the simplest form of weave and the one most commonly used. Each shute wire passes alternately over and under the warp wires at right angles.

Twilled weave

It is used where heavier wires are used to produce a square opening in a fine mesh. Each shute wire alternately goes over two warp wires and under two warp wires. By "staggering" the interfacing a diagonal pattern is produced.

Plain Filter Cloth

Plain filter cloth or "Dutch" Weave is identical in structure to plain weave.

The differences are that the warp wires are heavier and the lighter shute wires are crimped and tight against the warp wires, resulting in a small triangular opening.

Twilled Filter Cloth

Twilled Filter Cloth or Twilled "Dutch" Weave is the same as plain filter cloth except for the wire sizes and in overlapping the shute. This allows twice the number of wires per inch.

Micron Weave

Similar to twilled filter cloth, except it uses much finer wires and mesh count. Due to placement of wires and heavier wires than in the finest plain weave, it is extremely durable.

Measured in micron retention it is possible to have as many as 1,000,000 opening per square inch.

Grid Specifications

This is a special type of plain weave that utilizes very fine wire but produces a high percentage of open area or transmission. Usually woven in refractory metals and stainless steel, open area as high as 95% can be produced.
