Stainless Steel Woven Mesh – Square Weave Wire Cloth

Square weave wire cloth, also known as industrial woven wire cloth, is the most widely used and common type. We offer a broad range of industrial woven wire cloth – coarse mesh and fine mesh in plain and twill weave. Since wire cloth is produced in such varying combinations of materials, wire diameters and opening sizes, its use has been widely accepted throughout the industry. It is extremely versatile in application. Typically, it is often used for screening and classifying, such as test sieves, rotary shaking screens as well as shale shaker screens.

Dashang Wire Mesh supplies a variety of square weave wire cloth including stainless steel wire mesh (ss wire mesh), brass woven wire mesh, copper mesh screen, etc. Among them, stainless steel wire mesh is the most popular one.

Weave Types

Plain Weave

The simplest and most commonly used type with square openings. It is woven by alternating the weft wire over and under the warp wire and permits positive control of size of materials to be screened or filtered.

Twill Weave

Each weft wire passes alternately over and under 2 warp wires, staggered on successive warps. It is used where fine mesh must carry a heavy load.

Oblong Weave

Also known as broad weave, it is made preferably in plain weave with an opening ratio (length/width) of 3:1. Other ratios are possible. Triple warp weave is also available to provide large open areas. It is used for vibrating sieving screens or other architectural applications.

3-Heddle Weave

In this weave type, every warp wire alternately passes up and down each one and two weft wires alternately. Similarly, each weft wire goes alternately up and down of each and two warp wires. It is widely used in industry filters, filter discs and filter cylinders for filtration.

5-Heddle Weave

In this weave type, every warp wire alternately up and down each single and four weft wires and vice versa. It provides a rectangular opening and offers high flow rates. It is widely used in filtration of petroleum & chemical industries.
