Sintered Metal Powder Filter Elements | Porous Metal Filters
What is the sintered metal powder filter element? The sintered metal powder filter is a filter element that has undergone the process of sintering. The porosity's exploitation allows it to be used for applications such as liquid and gas filtration, gas/liquid flow control, and ventilation applications. Compared to other types of filter materials, such as glass fiber, stainless steel wire mesh, ceramics, filter paper, the sintered metal filters have higher mechanical and compressive strength. In applications with continuous high temperatures and corrosive environments, sintered metal filter elements can be used to improve the filtration process and reduce operating costs. These filter elements can be found in the chemical and petrochemical processes, oil refineries, pharmaceutical production, and semiconductor processes. Moreover, compared with the leaf filters, filter bags, and plate and frame filters, a sintered metal powder filter is more effective in removing particles, delivers more reliable performance, easier to clean, and has a longer service life.
