Wire Cloth Filters

Beamalloy can produce welded wire cloth filters to customer specifications. Wire cloths of the plain dutch weave type, and the twilled dutch weave type are particularly suited for filter applications. Wire cloth material is available in a wide variety of weights and micron filter ratings.

Plain Dutch Weave

Plain dutch weave is primarily used as a filter cloth. The openings slant diagonally through the cloth and cannot be seen by looking directly at the cloth. This weave has a coarser mesh and wire in the warp direction and a finer mesh and wire in the shute direction, giving a very compact, firm mesh with great strength.

Twilled Dutch Weave

Twilled dutch weave offers higher strength than regular Dutch weaves. It packs even more wires in a given area. Generally, this weave has finer mesh counts and lower flow than regular Dutch weaves and can be made to filter particles as fine as 2 microns in diameter.
