A Quick Look at Stainless-Steel Filter Cloth

Guest blog from Maishi Manufacturing, AFS Corporate Sponsor 

Have you ever encountered problems when choosing filter cloth? Do you often wonder which type of filter cloth best fulfills your needs? What are the factors that influence your decision? 

The choice of filter cloth material is usually dictated by the filtering goal. For example, for filtering stones in mining applications, metal screens may be more appropriate due to strength demands. For filtering medicine and/or food, the flexibility and low toxicity of polyester may be more suitable. On the other hand, polyester filter mesh, for certain applications, can be used for fine filtration in the oil and mining industries, and metal mesh screen can also be used in some cases for food or pharmaceutical applications. The specific application determines which one to use. Metal screens have large hardness and tension, resist deforming and are long-lasting. Polyester mesh is resistant to acid, alkali and corrosion, and is soft and malleable, especially in water filtration. 

MAISHI Group produces high-quality filter cloth, including polyester filter mesh, nylon filter mesh and stainless-steel filter mesh.
