Stainless Steel Woven Mesh - More Information
Stainless Woven Mesh Terminology
Mesh – The number of openings per lineal inch.
SWG – Standard wire gauge
Aperture- The distance between two adjacent wires
Diameter- The thickness of the wire before weaving
Pitch- The distance between the middle point of two adjacent wires or the sum of the aperture width and the wire diameter.
% Open Area- The ratio of the area of the aperture to the area of the mesh expressed in percentage terms
Weft- All wires running across the cloth as woven
Stainless Woven Mesh Formulas
Calculating the aperture
- Count of a convenient number of apertures (N)
- Measure the length covered by the N apertures (L)
- Measure the wire diameter (D)
- The average aperture (A)
Working example of calculating the aperture of 6/20 woven wire mesh
- Number of apertures counted N = 6
- Length covered by apertures centre to centre L = 25.4mm
- Diameter of wire D = 0.9mm
The woven wire is identified as 3.33mm aperture / 0.9mm diameter
Percentage Open Area
The mesh has a 62% open area
Micron (micrometer) is a unit of measure, in which usually only fine mesh under 1mm is referred to. A micron us a thousandth of a millimetre.
In this example 325/48.5, 0.043mm aperture, 0.035mm diameter is used.
Has extra crimps in warp and weft wires between intersections.
Lock Crimp Weave
Is produced with pre-crimped wire. Lock crimp weave is stabilised by a notch or bump at the wire intersections.
Is Produced by passing each fill wire alternatively over and under two warp wires.
