Fine Wire Mesh for Filter Elements
|Publication Date:||1 September 2012|
This SAE Aerospace Information Report (AIR) discusses the terminology, types, method of manufacture and chemistry of the fine wire meshes used for filtration of hydraulic, lubrication fuel system, and similar applications. Information contained herein may be used for quality assurance testing to unsure that a high performance filter grade wire mesh is acceptable for use in an aerospace application.
This document pertains to meshes as coarse as 4x4 wires/cm (10x10 wires/in) or coarser, as well as to meshes as fine as 155 x 110 wires/cm (400x2800 wires/in) or finer. Fine wire meshes refer to all wire meshes used in the manufacturing of filters for the aerospace industry. This includes not only the very fine meshes used for filtration, but also the coarser meshes used as a backup or supporting material.
