Our engineers and application experts work on many different types of filters and filter systems. Filter media is generally a grade of micron mesh or cloth (click here for more information on micron mesh). Our application experts can work with you on your filtration projects, assisting with filter design components and selection of the correct cloth media to meet your requirements.
We supply these types of filters mostly for fuel and oil filtration, pleating the mesh (or cloth) to allow the most amount of throughput while still maintaining a micron filtration solution. These types of filters typically have a supporting core on the inside (such as perforated or expanded metal or low mesh count square weave mesh) needed due to the pressure exerted on the pleated cloth. Pleating the cloth also gives a large surface area to catch the contaminants.
Solving the challenge of needing the strength to withstand a certain air flow pressure (>30 psi), yet filtering to microns, we provide multi-layer filters where several layers of mesh are sintered together. Perforated or large mesh counts provide rigidity while a micron cloth filter provides a solution often used in high end air filters.
