The company can manufacture to individual specifications and bespoke products can also potentially be delivered the next day, depending on the complexity of the design and the material being used.
Croft Engineering Services can supply wire-mesh filters in all manner of styles carrying a wide range of stock that can usually be delivered the next day. The uses of mesh filters are vast and varied, and the company has provided solutions for a whole range of industries.
Stainless-steel mesh Dixon rings
Dixon rings are made from stainless-steel mesh material and are available in 0.0625in, 0.125in and 0.25in diameter models. When millions of tiny Dixon rings are packed into distillation columns, the result is a remarkably large surface area but small volume.
Wedge-wire screens, filters, mesh, plate or floors
Wedge wire is a profiled wire used to construct a robust, extremely accurate form of screen. Often referred to as wedge-wire screens, wedge-wire filters, wedge-wire mesh, wedge-wire plate or wedge-wire floors, the product is usually manufactured from stainless steel. It comes in various forms: flat panels, curved panels, segments or sections to form floors, discs or drums, and also in a cylindrical form known as a slot tube.
Wedge wire is especially successful where strength and accuracy are required. The properties of wedge wire make it ideal for maintenance-free situations and high-pressure applications. Apertures range from 0.1mm to 20mm, and come with wire profiles and support wires. Wedge wire is unique in that its design assists the screen to clear easily and is less likely to peg or blind.
Bonded anchor-mesh sleeves
Croft Engineering Services produces high-quality mesh sleeves for fixing and fastening in the construction industry. Commonly referred to as 'adhesive anchor suits' or 'bonded anchor mesh sleeves' amongst other terms, the adhesive anchor mesh sleeves provide a high-performance solution to adhesive anchoring into hollow materials.
The company is a stockist of mesh sleeves with diameters of 6mm-20mm, but has the capability to manufacture sleeves to individual specifications, to various lengths and diameters, and with crimping styles to meet bespoke requirements.
