Distinguish Between Sintered Felt Filter Cartridges & Sintered Mesh Filter Cartridges

In an ever-evolving industrial environment, advances in filtration technology are providing more choices. When it comes to filtration solutions, metal sintered mesh filter cartridges and sintered felt filter cartridges are popular considerations for engineers and clients. Both are highly efficient filtration materials based on sintering technology, but differ in application and performance.

The purpose of this article is to provide you with an in-depth understanding to help you make an informed choice between metal sintered felt filter cartridges and sintered mesh filter cartridges.

Sintered Felt Filter Cartridges

Sintered felt filter cartridges consist of metal sintered felt as the primary filter material. The pleated design further provides a large filtration area and increases the dirt-holding capacity. They are extremely porous, evenly distributed and can be welded and folded into different shapes. We offer three types of sintered felt filter cartridges: without steel wire twined, with steel wire twined and with square openings at outer layer to match different filtration needs.

Sintered Mesh Filter Cartridge

Sintered mesh filter cartridge filter material: multi-layer metal sintered mesh is a new type of filtration material made of multi-layer metal wire mesh through special laminated pressing and vacuum sintering. It can reasonably match and design the gap size, permeability, and strength characteristics of the material, so that it has excellent filtration precision, filtration impedance, mechanical strength, abrasion resistance, heat resistance, and processability, and its comprehensive performance is significantly better than other types of filtration materials.

We provide a general sintered mesh filter element and an internal folding sintered mesh filter element. General sintered wire mesh can be used as filter material directly. Nevertheless, the existing technology, to increase the filtration area and at the same time with the characteristics of sintered wire mesh, the sintered wire mesh will be folded and processed.

Sintered Felt & Sintered Mesh Filter Cartridge Differences
Differences Sintered Mesh Filter Cartridge Sintered Felt Filter Cartridge
Materials Stainless steel metal woven mesh Metal fibers with different diameters
Processing Produced at 1,260 °C Produced at 1,180 °C
Structure Multi-layer wire mesh composite, with uniform filtration pore size Multi-layer gradient pore size layer, resulting in greater dirt-holding capacity
Blind Via Hole Rate Basically no holes More or less blind via holes
Filtration Accuracy 1–150 μm 1–80 μm
Cleaning Cycles Both are reusable materials that can be cleaned and reused, but sintered felts have a longer cleaning cycle due to their greater capacity to hold dirt.
