World Class Filtration Solutions


Porvair Filtration Group offers both the engineering competence and quality infrastructure to meet the challenges of the industry and produce solutions to ensure the efficiency and safety of those processes, using a range of technologies, products and techniques. These include Iodine traps/absorbers, Pulsed jet self-cleaning air and gas filtration systems, HEPA pre-filtration systems and Caesium capture protection, as well as waste package filter vent/breathers designed to meet filtration efficiency, hydrogen diffusion and pressure differential requirements, demisters to take aerosols out of gas and air streams and a variety of other designed-for-purpose filtration and separation packages.

Porvair Filtration Group has been supplying high quality filtration solutions to the nuclear industries within Europe, the USA and the UK since the 1980s. Working across the field, designing and supplying filtration and other equipment, we offer solutions to the power generation, fuel production, reprocessing, decontamination and decommissioning and waste packaging sectors.

As an engineering company in the filtration industry, we are able to take an initial discussion to a fully optimised solution, meeting material, code, technical  and quality requirements to provide a total solution to a specific problem.

We have the capability to provide everything from a single, specialised, retrofit element to a complete, packaged system to meet the precise needs of a complex application, together with on-site support and a complete after sales service. In addition to our acknowledged leadership in both engineering and quality, we also have the capability to offer the services of our extensive laboratory, development and testing facilities.

Porvair Filtration Group can provide custom designed filtration solutions using a wide range of metallic and non-metallic filtration media. Also available are a range of media surface treatments to further enhance the chemical, temperature and solids abrasion resistance of the media within a particular application.

Porvair also manufactures a range of metallic filtration media including:

Sinterflo® F Sintered Metal Fibre

  • High permeability
  • Low clean and operating pressure drops
  • Excellent cleanability, particularly in pulsed jet operation
  • Pleatable, offering higher filtration area per element
  • Available in 316L stainless and a range of alloys
  • True HEPA air and gas filtration possible (with pulsed jet cleaning if necessary).

Sinterflo® M Sintered Metal Mesh

  • Available in a wide range of mesh sizes and separation ratings
  • Available in various metal types
  • Sintered, layered mesh that can be designed to meet specific needs in a range of plate sizes and other shapes
  • Widely used in fluidised bed and packed bed laterals, distributors and bed plates.

Sinterflo® P Sintered Metal Powder

  • Low permeability, but extremely robust
  • Pressure drops typically higher than sintered metal fibre
  • Primarily a depth filter, so cleanability is not as effective as Sinterflo® F Sintered Metal Fibre
  • Robust structure permitting successful use in properly designed liquid filtration backwashable systems
  • Available in a wide range of stainless steels and other alloys.

Filters are used throughout the following industries:

  • Waste Packaging and Storage
  • Decommissioning and decontamination
  • Power Generation
  • Fuel production

Filtered containment venting systems
