products are commonly manufactured from 600x1200 mm panels.
These panels may be trimmed into smaller sheets or discs, stamped
into custom shapes or formed into cones or cylinders. Larger sheets
are produced by welding several panels together.
makes Poroplate® media
the perfect material for a wide variety of applications. Poroplate®
panels, tubes and discs make excellent filters for tough industrial
environments. Tubes and cones are used to fluidize dry granular
materials such as cement and polymer pellets. Specialty constructions
have even been used in noise suppression, transpiration cooling,
vacuum forming and dewatering.

laminates are as versatile as you need them to be.
filter media is made from layers of diffusion-bonded
wire cloth. This material is pleated to maximize filter area and
the service life of the filtering element. Poromesh®
elements are typically used in hydraulic, fuel, gas, polymer and
media is made from 304 or 316 stainless steel as well as more
exotic alloys like Monel and Inconel. This pleated media can be
formed into cylinders or stamped into discs.
The multilayer pleated
construction makes Poromesh®
elements particularly suited for rugged usage. The pleating provides
maximum filtration area, flow distribution and dirt capacity.
Support meshes prevent
collapse and bunching of the pleats at high differential pressure.
Yet a Poromesh element is easily cleaned for reuse.
media is Poromesh®
media comprised of stainless steel fibers that are random-laid and
sintered in our proprietary diffusion bolding process. These
media are then supported between two or more layers of wire cloth
and pleated. Porofelt®
elements provide finer filtration with optimum dirt-holding capacity
and Porofelt® elements
are available in almost every size imaginable from 3mm discs to
cylinders over 1 meter in length, each custom designed for your
products are seamless tubes of precisely wound calendered
wire designed for demanding aerospace and industrial applications
such as filtration, noise suppression and transpiration cooling.
Cylinders are wound
from 347 stainless steel wire of .07 to .13mm, although larger
wire and ribbons of special alloys (Monel, Hastelloy®, titanium
and more) may be used.
Winding machines are
computer-controlled to lay down wire spacings and geometries that
establish filtration ratings of 10, 20, 40, 75 and 100 micron.
Other ratings are easily accommodated.
Flow resistance is
controlled by the configuration of the wind pattern. The pore
may be designed to produce a tortuous path (excellent for fine
filtration), a straight-through path (for greater permeability)
and anywhere in-between.
winding, Poroloy® cylinders are furnace sintered to diffusion
bond all the wire contact points. The resulting unit is strong,
ductile and corrosion resistant.
are produced by placing woven wire cloth (or other filter media)
within the wall of a Poroloy® tube. The wire cloth acts as
the filter medium while the wound wire provides strength and protection
for the mesh. Poroguard® elements are recommended for demanding
applications requiring absolute filter ratings and high throughput.
Poroloy® and Poroguard®
cylinders are available in a broad range of diameters, lengths
