It is known that sintered wire mesh is a kind of diffusion-bonded woven wire mesh, or that sintered wire mesh is woven wire mesh experienced heat-treating process, which will improve a lot of original properties. Our company has rich experience in manufacturing those meshes and will produce professional advice to help you select the suitable filter mesh. To know better woven wire mesh & sintered mesh, let's start from the concept of woven wire mesh.
Woven Wire Mesh
Woven wire mesh is typically woven with wires running in two vertical directions - warp & shute, and are manufactured in rolls. Standard mesh roll size would be 36" or 48" wide × 100 ft long. The wires running the full length are called "warp" wires while those running across the width are called "weft", "fill" or "shute" wires. See the Fig-1, you will find the four frequently-used weave styles. Sometimes depending on our customers' special requirements, bespoke type will be available. Commonly, twilled dutch weave is for finest meshes while plain & dutch weaves for relatively coarse mesh.
Sintering or diffusion bonding
Sintering or diffusion bonding is a thermal process that fuses tangent metal surfaces without the additional filler metals or bonding agents.
Sintered Mesh Laminates
Fine woven wire filter mesh provides micron-rated pore size but it is too thin to be damaged. The best solution is to laminate the fine mesh to a coarser mesh supportive layer to provide strength and thickness. The common sintered wire mesh laminates is 5-layer or 6-layer, which is extensively used in filtration.
