Broad Mesh

Broad Mesh

To optimize the filtration capacity of the cloth, the shute wires of the broad mesh twilled weave are arranged loosely instead of being close to each other. This means that the retention accuracy is lower than that of a classic twilled weave. Nevertheless, the accuracy is sufficient for the requirements of most applications. In addition, this modified weave allows significantly higher flow rates with low loss of pressure and good regeneration characteristics. The surface of the BMT cloth is smooth on both sides, meaning that the filter can be easily cleaned.
