Diffusion bonded wire cloth offers a number of important benefits, including:
· Enhanced stability: The sintering process results in greater stability, which makes it an excellent choice for mesh with a higher percentage of open areas or that requires a secure pore size.
· Superior strength: The inherent strength of sintered wire cloth facilitates high-pressure backwashing and also provides excellent resistance to punctures and abrasions.
· Reusability: Because diffusion metal wire cloth is so durable and easy to clean, it can be reused for many applications without sacrificing quality or performance.
· Easy to fabricate: Sintered wire cloth is extremely easy to fabricate. It can be formed into depth filter media and other applications that require controlled permeability.
· Flexibility: The versatility of diffusion bonded wire cloth enables it to be used to create various combinations of square plain weave wire mesh layers to product a wide range of filtration and flow properties.
Compared to regular wire cloth, sintered wire mesh is made by applying heat and pressure to layers of woven wire cloth. The contact points of the wires are all bonded together to form a strong mesh that is easy to fabricate to any size.
All of the benefits listed above and several others make sintered wire cloth an excellent choice for a wide range of applications, including:
· Oil & Gas: The oil and gas industry can use diffusion bonded wire cloth for efficient sand control over numerous types of formation sands, as well as for multiple gravel-pack applications.
· Fluidization: Use sintered wire cloth for fluidizing bulk powders and solids under the most challenging conditions, such as extreme-temperature and high-corrosion environments.
· Power generation: Diffusion bonded wire cloth can maximize the performance of power generation filtration systems for applications such as reactor water cleanup and fuel pool cleanup. It can also help to lower the operating costs in condensate filter and polishing systems.
· General industry: General industrial applications of sintered wire cloth include catalyst recovery, steam filtration, polymer filtration, demineralizing and many others.
