An answer in the same vein of the question stated. You use a cloth appropriate for the solution you are filtering and of a mesh equivalent for the removal of what ever it is that you desire. It would make a difference if you are filtering a volatile solvent for microscopic particles or bowling balls out of a concentrated acid.

I want to know what is the specification for filter cloths.
and what is the full meaning of micron used in filter cloths.

That is a pretty broad question, Mohan, because filter cloths are used in thousands of different applications. But often you will specify a filter cloth made out of a material which is resistant to the fluid which you are filtering. Usually, a micron rating equates to a mesh dimension; for example a 90 micron filter will not let particles through that are larger than 90 microns. However, "filter aids" are often used. Thus you might have a filter cloth with a fairly large opening, and you first catch diatomaceous earth filter aid on it, then the filter aid rather than the cloth itself catches the smaller particles that you are actually trying to remove.
