Nylon Mesh Filter Screening
Component Supply's stock of nylon mesh filter screening is available in a variety of sizes that take into consideration the mesh opening, open area, mesh count (threads per inch) and thread diameter. This monofilament, woven mesh material is nylon 6/6 and possesses effective abrasion and alkali resistance. The softening point is between 170°C and 230°C and the melting point is between 210°C and 250°C. Some Component Supply customers have successfully autoclaved this material; however, polyester mesh is recommended for most applications involving autoclave sterilization.
Applications for nylon mesh filter screening occur in the following industries: mining, agriculture, aquaculture, medical and laboratory. The healthcare industry provides numerous applications for nylon mesh such as infusion and transfusion filters, micro-aggregate filters, arterial and venous filters in oxygenator reservoirs and blood bags. The smooth, soft surface, tighter tolerances, dimensional stability and strength make nylon mesh ideal for other medical and diagnostic applications as well. Component Supply seeks to assist researchers and product designers in determining the best products for their specific applications. While we do provide some information regarding the potential applications of our products, the numerous options make it impossible to create a comprehensive list of applications. Therefore, when considering prospective applications of nylon mesh in your specific industry, please call us and use our knowledgeable representatives as resources who can assist you in choosing the best products and custom fabrication options.
