|Mesh:||Number of opening per inch, or measurment from center of wire to center of wire||
|Weave:||Standard or Dutch, plain or twisted||
|Wire Diameter:||In decimals, first warp then shute if different sizes||
|Special Treatment:||Such as special crimps, calendering or selvage||
|Quantity / Dimension:||Length and width||
|Intended Use:||Include operating temperatures, corrosive agents or other|
Calendered Wire Cloth: Wire cloth that has passed through a pair of heavy rolls to reduce the thickness of the fabric, or to flatten the intersections to provide a smooth surface.
Sintered Mesh: Layers of wire mesh bonded together for specialized filtration or separation applications
Clear Openings (Also Space): Space between adjacent parallel wires.
Count (Also Mesh): Number of openings in a linear inch.
Crimp: Corrugations in wires to permit locking them in place when perpendicular to each other.
Double Crimp: Wires pre-crimped prior to weaving; warp and shute wires lay in each crimp.
Double Intermediate Crimp: Usually the warp wires lay in every crimp in the shute wires, and the shute wires lay in every other crimp in the warp wires.
Fill Wires (Also Shute Wires): Wires running across the width of the cloth as woven.
Gauge: Wire size. To avoid possible errors, specify wire diameter in decimal sizes rather than gauge numbers.
Slotted Opening: Weave where shute wires are arranged to provide rectangular openings.
Plain Dutch Weave:
Twilled Dutch Weave:
Welded Wire Cloth:
Ideally, we prefer a sample for a quotation and production guide. If not available, please furnish a drawing or print including intended use. NOTE: Basket dimensions are taken as inside dimensions unless specified otherwise.
