Understanding Wire Mesh Retention Ratings: Nominal vs. Absolute Micron Retention
Wire mesh is a versatile material consisting of parallel rows and intersecting columns of wire. It comes in many different shapes, sizes, weave designs, materials and metal alloys for a number of industrial and manufacturing applications. Among the specifications used to describe wire mesh are the terms Nominal and Absolute retention rating, but what exactly…Read More
How does the Cold Bond™ Manufacturing Process enhance Wire Mesh?
Cold Bond™ is a unique metallic bonding process developed to stabilize wire mesh for batteries, fuel cells, green hydrogen production and other processes. Woven wire meshes are becoming key components in current and emerging electrical energy generation and storage technologies – serving as anodes and cathodes, catalytic surfaces, permeable membranes, or chemical deposition substrates. In…Read More
Micron Mesh Filters – Part Three: Manufacturing Filtration Wire Mesh Components for Lowest Cost of Operation
In part three we separate the possible from the practical and discuss manufacturability or forming of the wire mesh media to meet the shape of the filter design, and how it can affect the filtration properties of the wire mesh. As a recap of our series, in part 1, we discussed different mesh weaves and…Read More
Micron Mesh Filters – Part Two: Balancing the Durability and Aperture of Filter Mesh
For this series on understanding wire mesh for filtration, in part one we discussed different mesh weaves and their roles in filter design. Here in part two, we will consider factors that degrade mesh performance as it relates to mesh aperture. When choosing a micronic mesh for a filter application, key variables often overlooked are…Read More
Micron Mesh Filters – Part One: Evaluating 6 meshes each with a 60 micron retention.
Selecting a micron wire mesh can be a daunting task. To better understand the complexities of mesh selection overall, let’s consider the more limited example of just choosing a 60-micron filtration mesh. We will first discuss some of the variables in what you expect the mesh to accomplish, followed by a comparison of the ways…Read More
