Knitted wire mesh and demister

The knitted wire mesh is a special woven wire mesh. It is the main component used in the production of wire mesh demisters, oil and gas separators, dust removal, environmental protection, engine silencer, mechanical shock absorption, etc.


Knitted Wire Mesh - Various Materials, Types and Applications

The knitted wire mesh is a special woven wire mesh. It can be made of various materials, such as stainless steel wires include AISI304, 304L, 321, 316, 316L, pure nickel wire, pure titanium wire, Monel etc. and other alloy materials. The various material wires are knitted into a sleeve of continuous stocking of inter-linked wire loops.

Wire diameter specification range: 0.08 ~ 0.3mm flat wire or round wire. Single-strand weaving, multi-strand weaving, metal wire and non-metal wire (various fibers) weaving. According to needs, it can be pressed and rolled on the screen to form corrugated shapes of various specifications, such as "herringbone" pattern.

Knitted wire mesh can be categorized into various types based on several different standards. Here are the primary classifications to consider:

By Material: Knitted wire mesh can be made from metals, includeing stainless steel wires include AISI304, 304L, 321, 316, 316L, pure nickel wire, pure titanium wire, Monel, and other alloy wires.

By Wire Type: Knitted wire mesh can be made with either flattened or round wires. These wires come in different diameters and are suited for different applications. Choose according to your specific requirements.

By Filament: Knitted wire mesh can be constructed from mono-filament or multi-filament wires. Mono-filament knitted wire mesh has a simple structure suitable for common applications, while multi-filament knitted wire mesh is ideal for heavy-duty applications.

By Appearance: The appearance of knitted wire mesh can be flattened or ginned. The original form is flattened, but it can be crimped by machines into various shapes, widths, and depths to suit different applications.

By Technology: Typically, knitted wire mesh is produced in rolls. However, for specific applications, it can be compressed into different shapes, such as rectangular, round, or ring shapes.

Specifications of knitted wire mesh

Hole size: from (2×3mm) to (4×5mm) to (12×6mm) In addition, the hole size can be fine-tuned according to customer requirements. The opening form is a cross arrangement of large holes and small holes (the size of the holes in the length direction is the same, but the width is different)

The surface condition: a flat mesh surface and a corrugated mesh surface (the width and depth of the corrugation have different specifications). The width range: 40mm, 80mm, 100mm, 150mm, 200mm, 300mm, 400, 500mm, 600mm, etc.

The main materials of gas-liquid filter: stainless steel wires include AISI304, 304L, 321, 316, 316L, pure nickel wire, pure titanium wire, Monel etc.

Features of knitted wire mesh

1. Various Materials: Knitted wire mesh is available in a wide range of materials, including stainless steel, copper, brass, nickel, and more. This variety allows it to meet the specific requirements of different applications, providing flexibility in choosing the right material for the job.

2. Solid Structure: The interlocking loops of the knitted wire mesh create a strong and durable structure. This solid configuration ensures that the mesh maintains its integrity and does not loosen or unravel during use, providing long-lasting performance.

3. High Efficiency: Knitted wire mesh is commonly used as a demister pad due to its high filtering efficiency. It effectively separates liquid droplets from gas streams, making it an essential component in various industrial processes to ensure clean and efficient operations.

4. Corrosion and Rust Resistance: Many knitted wire meshes are made from materials that are resistant to corrosion and rust. This makes them suitable for use in harsh environments where exposure to moisture and chemicals is common, ensuring longevity and reliability.

5. Acid and Alkali Resistance: Some knitted wire meshes are designed to withstand acidic and alkaline environments. This property expands their usability in chemical processing and other industries where exposure to corrosive substances is frequent.

6. Temperature Resistance: Knitted wire mesh can endure extreme temperatures, both high and low. This makes it ideal for applications involving high heat or cryogenic conditions, providing reliable performance without degradation.

7. Wide Range of Applications: Due to its versatile properties, knitted wire mesh is used in a multitude of applications. These include filtration, separation, shielding, cushioning, and support in industries such as petrochemical, aerospace, automotive, electronics, and construction.

Knitted wire mesh is a versatile and durable solution for various industrial applications, offering benefits such as high efficiency, corrosion resistance, and adaptability to different environments.
