Sintered Mesh Filter Element for Precise Filtration

What is sintered mesh?
Sintered mesh is manufactured from one layer or multiple layers of woven wire meshes by a "sintering" process. The single layer woven wire mesh is first roller flattened uniformly, to ensure good contact at the wire cross over points. Then the single layer or more layers of this calendered mesh are then laminated by special fixtures under mechanical pressure in high temperature furnace, which is filled with proprietary inset gas and the temperature is raised to a point where sintering (diffusion-bonded) occurs. After controlled-cooling process, the mesh has become more rigid, for all the contact points of individual wires bonding to each other. Sintering improves the characteristics of woven wire mesh through the combination of heat and pressure. Sintered mesh can be single layer or multiple layer, according to filtration need, one layer of perforated metal can be added to reinforce the whole structure. What's more, sintered mesh can be cut, welded, pleated, rolled into other shapes, like disc, plate, cartridge, cone shape. Compared with traditional wire mesh as filter, sintered mesh has prominent advantages, high mechanical strength, high permeability, low pressure drop, wide range of filtration rating, easy to backwash. Although the cost seems higher than traditional filter, but its long using life and excellent properties gain more popularity with clear advantages.

Our main products include: Five-layer sintered mesh, Sintered mesh laminate, Sintered mesh with perforated metal, Sintered metal filter cartridge, Sintered metal filter disc, Pleated sintered mesh filter, Sintered cone filter, Sintered metal fiber felt.

Some small particles displayed to show that sintered mesh can do the filtration job.
Sintered mesh filter element PK Traditional metal filter element
Sintered mesh filter element
  • Sintered process makes the mesh not easy to deform.
  • Rigid, hard to be damaged.
  • High permeability.
  • Precise filter rating.
  • Easy to be back-washed, long using life.
Traditional metal filter element
  • Loose structure, easy deformation.
  • Less rigid, easy to be broken.
  • Permeability is bad.
  • Unstable pore size can not guarantee the filtration rating.
  • Time change item, the cost becomes high.

Sintered metal filter cartridge made from stainless steel shows good performance in fine filtration of high temperature, pressure and viscous fluids.

Sintered metal filter disc, made from sintered woven wire mesh, usually has fine filter rating, which can improve the efficiency of filtration.

Pleated sintered mesh filter performs fine filtration, it is made of stainless steel wire mesh or fiber felt that sintered together in vacuum.

Sintered cone filter plays an important role in gas, liquid or solid filtration in many industries like food and beverage, aerospace, petrochemistry.
