The chemical industry covers a wide variety of production processes and numerous filtration applications for classification, separation, filtration and dewatering of chemicals. We make baskets for centrifuges, metal filter elements, baskets, filter plates, filter presses, reactor internals and other filtration products. With our technology we provide numerous advantages over wire mesh, perforated plates and wedge wire.
High open area - We can cut our slots closer to each other because we bring minimum force and heat into our material. This way we create an high open area compared to other production methods such as punching, laser cutting or wedge wire. Thus more filtration (and production) capacity with the same equipment.
Long life time - The elements are robust and without a welded construction. This is why they are especially useful in applications with high mechanical stresses such as centrifuges and shakers.
Excellent cleaning properties - Because we make conical perforations in the metal sheets, the contamination will not get stuck in the metal sheet. It will either be retained at the surface or pass through. Furthermore, our elements have a smooth surface for back-flush and scraper self-cleaning systems.
High mechanical strength - Because of the abrasive media, the filters that are used in this process may wear quickly. Our elements are made from a single sheet of metal (minimum welding) and can be made in any metal such as Duplex or other alloys. This way we create reliable filtration products with a long service life time. These advantages also make them useful in applications with high mechanical stresses such as shakers and centrifuges.
