Brass screen mesh is a woven wire mesh where warp and weft (woof / filling) wires are interlaced at right angles. In other words, each warp wire and each weft wire pass over one, two or other amounts of wires, and then under the next one, two or other amounts of wires.
For example, plain woven wire mesh is the mesh where warp and weft wires pass over one, and then under the next adjacent wire in both sides.
In addition, two distinct sets of wires are straight and at right angles to each other.
Weaving type of brass wire mesh
Plain weave, Twill weave, etc.
Weave types are different because of different interlacing of warp and weft wires and different wire diameter.
Brass wire mesh processes much better abrasion resistance, hardness and tensile strength than copper wire mesh. When compared to phosphor bronze wire mesh, brass wire cloth is softer.
Mesh metrics: mesh counts, wire diameter and hole size
Mesh counts: 2-250 mesh
Wire diameter: the thickness of one single wire.
Opening / Aperture / Hole size: the distance between two adjacent parallel wires.
Micron size can also tell us something about the brass mesh. Because it typically refers to the nominal opening size. For example, 250 micron mesh screen possesses 0.25 mm aperture size. 75 micron mesh possesses 0.075 mm aperture size.
From the mesh screen size chart, we can also figure out that mesh size of 250 micron mesh screen may be 60, and its diameter is 0.178 mm.
We can customize brass wire mesh screen as requirement for example cut, form, etc.
Good thermal and electrical conductivity
Good corrosion resistance
Applications of brass screen mesh
Brass wire cloth suits for liquid filtration, particle separation, air silencing, and decorative applications.
Brass wire mesh is suitable for some other applications, such as papermaking process, chemical, oil strainers, plumbing screen, etc.
