Woven Wire Cloth Laminated Panels for FluidizationPlymesh are woven wire cloth laminated panels. The individual wire cloth layers are bonded together by means of a special manufacturing process. Plymesh is a porous, sheet metal like medium for fluidization and filtration applications. These laminated panels can be made up of woven wire cloth layers with square openings or MINIMESH® filter cloth specifications or a combination of both types. Plymesh has a defined pore size ranging from 5 to 500 micrometeres. The geometry of the pores is uniform, and unlike powdered metal products, there are no blind holes. The surface of Plymesh is smooth, with flattened knuckles on the outer wire cloth layers. The physical characteristics of the individual Plymesh types as far as their pore size and flow capacity are concerned, can be pre-determined. Plymesh can also be supplied in panels and shaped parts in ready to be installed components such as candles, cylinders, cones and aeration pads. The standard size of Plymesh sheets is 500 x 1,000 mm. Special sizes upon request.
Plymesh aeration pads are a highly efficient discharging aid in silos, in air conveying troughs, especially in the high temperature field. Plymesh is a proven separating element between air and the material to be conveyed.
Other applications are: flow regulator in water pipes, drinking water filtration, sound attenuation for air outlets, filter inserts for air aspirating holes, water separators for fuel, hydraulic filtration especially for aviation and aerospace.
Plymesh Aeration Pads
Plymesh aeration pads are used to fluidize and to optimize the flow rate of powdered and pulverized products in silos and in bunkers. Pulverized goods stored in silos have to be easily extracted for further processes. Often, however, the powdered material tends to densify during the storage and becomes solid. Therefore it is no longer possible to rely on gravity alone for extraction.
To ensure the flow, Plymesh aeration pads are used with success. Plymesh aeration pads and candles can easily be installed, even in silos already in operation.
