Knitted wire mesh/stainless steel knitted wire mesh for gas filter
Knitted wire mesh is a metal wire or plastic strand knitted into a mesh structure in
very much the same way as stockings or sweaters. It is in no way
related to the woven metal materials familiar to us as fly screens.
Knitting produces mesh of interlocking loops. These loops can move
relative to each other in the same plane without distorting the
mesh, giving knitted mesh a two-way stretch. This cannot be done
with woven meshes, as there is always some form of connection
between the wires at the corners of the square openings. From a
functional point of view, it is this flexibility that gives knitted
mesh its unique advantages for industrial uses.
Flattened mesh is sometimes run through corrugating rolls to create
crimped mesh. In this form, the corrugations act like springs for
resiliency and give the mesh thickness.
Most Commonly Knit Materials--stainless steel wire 304 316,
copper wire--brass wire and copper wire ,tinned copper wire
monel wire, nickel wire, and alloy wire etc.
Mesh is normally knit from wires ranging in diameter from .0035” to
.0200”. In special applications, Metal Textiles has knit wires
ranging in diameter from .0005” to .0350”. These wires can be round
or flat such as those used in Metal Textiles copper gauze for
cleaning and in air-filtration applications where large surface
areas of wire are needed. A round wire when flattened has
approximately twice as much surface area.
In filtration applications, wire diameter is perhaps the most
important design variable. It directly affects flow, dirt holding
capacity, pressure drop and cost. In general, larger diameter wire
allows for higher flow but provides lower dirt holding capacity.
Also, larger diameter wire is less expensive. Therefore, a balance
must be struck between using a higher density filter of higher cost
fine wire or a lesser density filter using lower cost heavy wire.
Density refers to the mass of material per unit volume. It is
related to the density of the original mesh and the amount of
forming pressure used to compress the mesh into its final form.
Determining the required mesh density to produce the specified
final product density is a critical step in the design process.
Proper density ensures optimal performance of the sealing,
gasketing, filtration, heat transfer and separation applications.
Metal Textiles engineers are expert at determining proper density
for specific requirements.
|Applications---Knitted mesh is used in a variety of applications, including the
- Vibration & Shock Absorption
- Air & Liquid Filtration
- Noise Suppression
- Gasketing & Sealing
- Heat Transfer & Insulation
- EMI/RFI Shielding
- Mist Elimination & Process Separation
- Flame Arrestors
- Engine Catalysts
Properties of Knitted Mesh
Knitted metal has distinct advantages over most competitive
materials. Because each loop acts as a small spring when subjected
to tensile or compressive stress, knitted metal has an inherent
resiliency. If it’s not distorted beyond its yield point, the
material will resume its original shape when the stress is removed.
Even when it’s compressed into a special shape, a high degree of
resiliency is retained. Varying the knitted structure, wire
diameter, wire material and forming pressure used to create the
part can control this characteristic.
Knitted metal also provides high mechanical damping characteristics
and non-linear spring rates. Vibration and mechanical shock can be
effectively controlled to eliminate the violent resonant conditions
and provide ample protection from dynamic overloads.
In compressed form, knitted metal can handle shock loadings up to
the yield strength of the material itself. The load may be applied
from any direction—up, down or in from all sides.
Our application engineers have the experience to determine the
optimum density of compressed units within the range of 10% to 70%.
This is important in applications such as liquid filtration and
noise attenuation where flow resistance is critical.
When compressed, layered, calendared or wound knitted metal
presents a “tortuous” path to liquids or gasses flowing through it.
This increases filtration capability and particle retention
Among the most important property of knitted mesh units is the
material itself. By careful selection of the material or
combinations of materials, Metal Textiles can custom engineer
solutions best suited for our customer’s application—be it
corrosive, ultra-high or cryogenic temperature, high pressure,
radioactive, dirty, oily or other extreme conditions.
