Plain dutch weave (PDW): slightly increased strength
When compared with square, oblong or broad weave meshes, plain dutch weaves offer increased mechanical strength for industrial filtration.
Thanks to their closed surface, filtration occurs at the point where warp and weft join. Dutch weave is manufactured in plain weave pattern (1/1), whereby the warp wires are interwoven with a wider pitch than the weft wires. This significantly increases the strength of the mesh in comparison with square meshes.
The absolute aperture of the fabric is 45 µm to 300 µm.
GKD carries stock of plain dutch weave with these absolute openings made from 1.4301, 1.4401 and 1.4539 stainless steel, which cover the majority of meshes required in the field of industrial filtration.
