Three dimensional high performance filter cloth - New developments in woven wire filtration media

F. Edelmeier*, F. Meyer, Haver & Boecker, Germany

Compared to other filter media, the specific properties of a woven wire mesh may be precisely described geometrically and defined through the type of weave, wire diameter and mesh count. For the user and manufacturer of woven wire filters, this is a considerable advantage because geometric pore size and permeability can be precisely calculated beforehand. With these “precision pores” it is possible to attain a higher separation effect and shape stability.

Where conventional filter cloths have reached their limits, the new developed Reverse Plain Dutch Weave with High Flow Capacity (RPD HIFLO-S) opens up new dimensions in filtration. Using new weaving technology developed by Haver & Boecker, a three-dimensional pore geometry is created that increases the number of pores and thus the open surface. For a given pore size, the flow rate is more than doubled. In addition, the flow conditions are optimized and.....
