Basic Overview of Wire Mesh

Wire mesh is a metallic product that is used across a wide spectrum of applications all over the world. The products’ versatility can be seen across a wide range of products that spans from industrial filtration to commercial animal encasements and insect screening. There is a plethora of information to learn about wire mesh, and this article will serve as a small introduction to the field.

There are many different sizes and shapes of wire mesh, and each different mesh design can be comprised of varying metals and alloys. Wire mesh can also be woven or welded:

Woven Wire Mesh- This type of wire mesh is creating by using a metal loom. The loom creates different patterns of wire mesh such as: plain weave, Dutch weave, and twilled weaved. Looms can often be overburdened by the weight of the mesh; when this happens, the wire is pre crimped, leaving the material stable and rigid. Pre crimped wire mesh can come in different forms as well: intermediate crimp, lock crimp, and plain weave.

Individual wires are joined together through welding, which allows thinner wires to be used over larger spaces. Stainless steel mesh is an extremely popular welded product, because of its strength, appearance, and grid pattern. It is common to find stainless steel mesh in the industrial settings, as it is an excellent material for filtering and straining.

Extremely thin wire mesh has a myriad of purposes and functions.  The material is porous, durable, and resistant to corrosion. These are the exact qualities that make up a great filter. Filters are used in automobiles, home and garden projects, food processing, and larger industrial endeavors.  Because the mesh is woven and welded, the size of the mesh can allow different types and sizes of draining. Large weaves let more materials through; whereas, small weaves can be woven so tightly that bacteria cant pass through.

Wire mesh is also found in the construction industry. Concrete is poured on top of the mesh, which gives the concrete more tensile strength; the mesh helps to stabilize the brittle, newly formed concrete, which makes roads and side walks stronger and safer over the course of time.

If you are interested in purchasing stainless steel mesh, always contact a professional for more information. Producers of steel mesh can custom make wire mesh, to fit the exact needs of your business.

What is Screen Mesh?

Screen mesh is a woven metal material that is used for a number of different purposes.  You can find screen mesh in many different types of household appliances, fixtures, and industrial machines. Screen mesh can be made with a number of different materials that are efficient in terms of durability and longevity. Most materials that are woven into a screen mesh become extremely durable and weather resistant. There are a plethora of different types of screen mesh that are commonly found throughout a number of industries. Depending upon the application, mesh will vary in strength and the tightness of the mesh itself.

Intrinsically, screen mesh acts as a filter for undesired items.  Many products revolve around the principal of allowing air to flow uninhibited. For instance, if you want to sit in a room while experiencing a warm summer’s night breeze, free from the presence of pesky mosquitos, screen mesh will act as the perfect conduit between you and the pests.
The mesh will be designed with thicker segments of material and uses a larger amount of fiber in order to procure a tighter, more secure weave.  It is possible to buy screen mesh designed with lightweight metal wiring. Stainless steel is an extremely viable material for screen mesh production.

Stainless steel screen mesh is commonly used in the manufacturing industry as a tool for straining industrial liquids. Oil, water, grease, and hot materials can pass through a stainless steel strainer in order to be filtered.

Another type of popular mesh is referred to as privacy screening.  Privacy screening is traditionally tightly weaved and laminated.  This type of product is perfect for areas that want to limit the presences of small insects and air borne contaminants.

Fiberglass is one of the more commonly recognized types of mesh.  This variety is used to enclose areas of a porch, screen room, or veranda.  You can find this mesh in any modern home on windows and screen doors. Wire mesh was once used for screens, but was replaced by the more technologically advanced fiberglass alternative. Fiberglass is much easier to maintain, has a longer lifespan, and is more durable in unfavorable weather conditions.

Choosing the correct type of mesh is entirely dependent upon the application of the screen.  If mesh is to tightly woven, it will not allow for the straining of liquids. Conversely, if the weave is too loose, insects will enter your home.

Advantages of Stainless Steel Wire Mesh

Welded wire mesh is a material that is woven into a crisscross mesh pattern. It is often very small, strong and can hold up in different types of environments.   Stainless screen mesh has many beneficial attributes.  Coming in two different types, (welded wire cloth and woven wire mesh) stainless steel wire mesh is used for many manufacturing applications, across a wide spectrum of industries.  Its applications vary from: being used as a small part, as an enclosure for animals, or as a vital aspect of the horticultural industry. Some of the most common applications include: plating baskets, witches hat strainers, cone strainers, and screening and filtration for systems that process fluids.   There are many advantages to purchasing stainless steel screen mesh. Below is a short compilation of some of the benefits.

  • Stainless steel screen mesh has an innate resistance to rust.  This means that the screen mesh will not succumb to oxidation in an environment that is conducive to rusting.
  • As a result of the mesh being rust resistance, it retains a cleaner and more vibrant appearance over the duration of its use.
  • Stainless steel screen mesh is very easily cleansed, washed, and shined, which makes it a highly reusable product.
  • The material is also well known for its tensile strength, or the maximum strength a material can withstand while being stretched or pulled before failing and breaking.  It also maintains very high durability features.
  • As a result of the mesh being both flexible and stable, it is advantageous for concrete applications.  Large concrete construction projects are more easily, and efficiently, completed with steel screen mesh products.
  • It is highly versatile in the manufacturing process. Stainless steel screen mesh can be designed with a multitude of different weave patterns, screen sizes, mesh sizes, and wire diameters. This allows for the manufacturer to have the utmost control over design applications, allowing for the creation of a product that meets the customer’s needs.
  • The ability to design meshes with different characteristics makes stainless steel mesh an excellent material for sieving, organizing, screening, straining, and filtrating.
  • Wire mesh withholds its integrity when subjected to a variety of manufacturing abuses and practices.
  • No matter the manufacturing application, stainless steel wire mesh can handle the task.
  • When compared to competitors, such as galvanized iron wire mesh, or PVC coated welded wire mesh, stainless steel mesh is much more durable and resistant to corrosion.
