Design Assistance for Custom Metal Filters and Strainers

Our engineers help with the success of your metal filtration product

Yankee Wire Cloth Products has been manufacturing custom engineered parts such as wire cloth filters, expanded metal strainers and fabricated perforated metal strainer and filter components since 1963. We understand how various welds, materials and designs work with different applications.

Our team will work with your engineers to provide metal filter design assistance or help develop prototypes for any style of metal filtration device imaginable. We have helped turn thousands of ideas into working metal strainer filters, strainers and screens for a wide range of industries.

Your Design, Our Production

We follow our founder’s philosophy of “Mutually Agreed Upon Design,” a collaborative process where our team interacts with your engineering staff every step of the way. Those steps include:

  • Carefully reviewing your drawings and material selections

  • Recommending design or material options that deliver better performance and the most cost-effective finished product possible
