On show for the first time in the UK at Southern Manufacturing 2020 will be the latest development in precision woven wire meshes by Swiss specialists Bopp, represented in the UK by G Bopp.
Compomesh combines specially selected steel wire filter meshes with a randomly oriented non-woven layer, providing an innovative, high performance filter medium capable of withstanding temperatures in excess of 600oC. It combines the advantages of a non-woven metal fibre mesh with those of a woven wire mesh in one single filter medium, says the company. The metal fibre mesh on the upstream side guarantees significant dirt holding capacities whilst preventing mesh blockages on the downstream side. This woven mesh/non-woven combination can increase filter life by a factor of five when compared with single layer meshes. In addition, the non-woven element separates out the smallest particles; filter finesses of x50=0.2µm and finer can be achieved, the company adds. The mesh is flexible and complies with the highest standards of cleanliness according to ISO 16232 and VDA Band 19.
Also on show will be examples from the AM range of steel meshes developed specifically for high performance applications in the field of acoustics. Manufactured exclusively from the highest grade stainless steel, these meshes are precise in terms of specification, achieving exact retention of specific acoustic impedance across the entire surface area of the mesh. Offering a comprehensive range of acoustic transparency up to 1000 MKS Rayl with guaranteed reproducibility and high levels of temperature resistance (AISI 304/316), they are claimed to offer unrivalled protection against dust particles, moisture, physical, thermal and chemical impact.
