Sintered metal filters are used for their high strength, corrosion resistance and high temperature capability in a variety of industries. The immediate advantages of sintered metal filters over other filter materials are their ability to withstand higher pressures and temperatures, and their ductility and toughness to withstand process shocks and upsets.
The sintering process bonds the powdered metal particles through diffusion at temperatures below the melting point. Following sintering, the original powder particles no longer exist, replaced by a fully connected porous metal structure where the grain boundaries run over the particle boundaries.
These filters would be constructed of less common materials such as Hastelloy C-22, 316L stainless steel, HiFlow Nickel and others. They are suited for microfiltration of particulate in liquids. The sizing and configuration of these elements can be engineered per the requirements of your system.
