Plain Dutch Weave & Twill Dutch Weave Wire Cloth

DWT manufactures custom wire cloth to meet clients’ filtration needs. Dutch weave filter mesh provides superior filtration capabilities for a wide range of applications, including pressure, fuel and liquid filters for the aerospace, petrochemical, pharmaceutical, mining and waste water treatment industries.

Plain Dutch Weave wire cloth

Plain Dutch weave wire cloth is woven using two sizes of wire. Smaller wires, as small as micron size, are used in the shute direction and are woven with a larger warp wire. The smaller wires are woven tightly together, providing a tight mesh for filtering. The larger wire provides strength to the mesh. The primary uses of this wire cloth are filtration and separation of liquid and slurry products.

Twill Dutch Weave wire cloth

Twill Dutch weave wire cloth combines Dutch and twill weaving to provide a fine mesh filtering cloth. Shute wires are passed over and under two warp wires, providing a tight, fine filter with tapered openings. The weaving process allows for the use of very fine wires, to micron size, producing filtering mesh for gas and liquid applications.

Dorstener Wire offers custom wire configurations for wire cloth to meet the specific needs of its clients. For Dutch weaves micron-grade wire is most commonly used. In addition, DWT has the capability to manufacture:

We offer a wide range of metals and alloys to provide the best material or combination of materials for the filter mesh.
