Pleated Metal Mesh Filter

Saifilter pleated metal mesh filter is made of pleated metal wire mesh material. Choose a combination of three to four layers of metal wire cloth pleated, The inner and outer coarse mesh is usually used as a reinforcement layer or support layer, the micron rating depends on the core filter layer. Pleated metal mesh filters allow for larger filtration areas and high fouling control capabilities, and can also fit into smaller housings, which allow for fine filtration without applying significant pressure.

Pleated Metal Mesh Filter And Benefits

  • Flexible Configuration: We can provide different aperture sizes, dimensions, and end connection methods.
  • Rapid production: Can be produced within 7 days for standard end connection and sealing configurations.
  • Mesh Pattern: The filtration layer of the pleated metal mesh filter can be optionally woven in different styles according to your specific application, including square weave, twill Dutch weave, and plain Dutch weave. It also offers a variety of mesh sizes for users to choose from, allowing for a more robust structure when required in applications.
  • High contaminant capacity: The pleated structure can trap more pollutant particles to reduce frequent replacement and maintenance. Prolong the service life of pleated wire mesh filter cartridges.
  • High Collapse Pressure Rating: After validation design and testing, it is capable of withstanding collapse pressures ranging from 300 to 6,000 PSID. Ensuring the safety of the fluid system.
  • Compatibility: Compatible with various liquid or gas media, suitable for operation in harsh environments (including corrosive conditions, high-temperature synthesis gases, or high differential pressures).
  • Product Traceability: Each pleated wire mesh filter cartridge is provided with laser-engraved numbering, and entered into a product traceability system for simplified tracking and management.
  • Pleated cylindrical cartridges repeatable cleaning: Multiple cleaning methods are available, depending on the contamination level of the pleated metal mesh filter and the type of fluid medium. You can select different cleaning processes, such as high-temperature fumigation, chemical cleaning, and ultrasonic.

A pleated metal mesh filter is a type of filtration media composed of multiple layers of fine metal mesh that are folded in a pleated pattern. This design increases the filter's surface area, enhancing its efficiency in trapping particles from fluids or gases.

Pleated metal mesh filters offer several advantages, including high durability due to their metal construction, excellent resistance to high temperatures and corrosive environments, and improved filtration efficiency due to the pleated design.


Pleated metal mesh filters find applications in various industries, such as automotive, aerospace, petrochemical, and HVAC systems. They are often used for critical filtration tasks where high-temperature resistance and particle capture efficiency are essential.

To clean pleated metal mesh filters, gently remove them from the filtration system and use compressed air, water, or a mild cleaning solution to remove trapped particles. It's important to follow manufacturer guidelines to avoid damaging the filter media during cleaning. Regular maintenance helps ensure optimal filtration performance and extends the filter's lifespan.

Yes, many manufacturers offer customization options for pleated metal mesh filters. You can tailor aspects such as mesh size, pleat count, dimensions, and frame material to meet the specific requirements of your application, ensuring the filter functions effectively and efficiently in your intended use case.
