|Plain Dutch Weave|
As a derivation of plain weave, The mesh of main wires is broad, and the cross wires stick together closely, letting liquids or air pass through the intersections of the main and cross wire. This net is best suited for filtering dehydration, and separation of centrifugal separators. Mesh is indicated by the number of weft wires between a distance of 25.4mm. The Dutch Weave is produced by the use of coarse mesh (mesh wire, woven wire mesh, wire mesh basket) in the warp and a fine mesh with relatively smaller wire in the fill. This weave results in greater strength with very fine openings and is primarily used as a filter cloth. The shape and position of the openings aid particle retention and increase filter cake formation.
