Perforated stainless steel can be used as filter media alone for the removal of course particles, or as the support structure for wire mesh or synthetic type filter elements.
Wire Mesh filter screens are wrapped tightly around and welded to a perforated stainless steel backer screen. For 150 mesh and finer filter elements, a course mesh drainage layer is placed between the fine mesh and the perforated backer screen for structural support, to disperse the flow and assure full utilization of the screen surface, and to eliminate the dead spots that would otherwise be created.
Synthetic Fabric filter screens are available in different materials that include nylon and polyester. As with the wire mesh, a 20 or 60 mesh drainage layer is attached to the perforated backer. The filter cloth is sewn into a tube and the ends are tucked inside the bottom and top of the perforated element. The basket handle and basket bottom firmly clamp the fabric in place preventing bypass of contaminants.
Spiral Wound Slotted Wedge Wire is an extremely rugged filter media capable of withstanding very high differential pressures. It is especially suited for filtering fibers or gelatinous particles that have a tendency to "staple themselves into the openings of the filter screens, making manual cleaning difficult.
Diffusion Bonded filter elements are highly efficient, extremely durable wire mesh screens that can withstand many high pressure washed without the need for replacement. They are manufactured with multiple layers of 316 stainless steel wire mesh that are supported by a perforated element.
Skimmers can help clean a waste water stream, remove contaminants from coolants and wash water, or recover a valuable or reusable product. These skimmers can collect any free-floating oils, including petroleum, animal, vegetable and mineral oils. Mop skimmers and disc skimmers are available for compact to high volume capacities. We also have a full line of spill control products.
Backwash systems are used for industrial laundry wastewater, textile wastewater, wire drawing compounds and oils. They are available in sizes up to 200 gallons per minute. Back flushing is a quick and efficient method of cleaning. Automatic Back flushing controls reduce system supervision. Picking the proper backwashing water system can reduce water use by 83%.
The most popular and efficient filtration systems for the removal of large quantities of water particulate removal are media filters. They remove debris, algae, sand, and silt from large volumes of water at low pressure. Service is minimal for there are no moving parts. View our Micron vs. Mesh chart.
