Slosh baffle solutions for fuel and urea tanks on a knitted basis
Slosh baffle solutions for fuel and urea tanks based on knitted wire mesh: Mechanically circular-knitted hose made from an endless wire with great variance in terms of material, wire diameter, dimensions and processing.
- Stainless steel
depending on application
Diameter depends on application, usually between 0.25 and 0.8 mm
Slosh baffle applications
The specifications of the knitted-mesh component may be chosen based on the following parameters:
- Free volume
The flexible knitted-mesh product may be used in the tank in many different forms.
The knitted mesh’s function as slosh baffle is based on its confusing structure. Its effect depends on:
- Flow resistance
- Surface expansion
- Separation of large fluid flows
Tank volume loss due to knitted-mesh component: Typically between 3 and 5% of the knitted mesh’s bounding volume.
Weight of the knitted-mesh component for usually 25 g per 1 dm³ of knitted mesh.
Knitted mesh can be used for both explosion protection and as cell baffle.
All kinds of designs:
- Loose bulk material
- More complex structures
