Steam Filtration

Porvair Filtration Group manufactures a range of high quality, industry standard equipment sterilisation and processing filters. Our steam filters are available in a selection of grades to meet the particular requirements demanded throughout the production process.

Culinary steam

Porvair supply a range of filters for the production of particulate free culinary steam for critical applications that come in direct contact with food, beverages, pharmaceuticals or product contact surfaces. These filters exceed the 3A Sanitary Standards 609-03, constructed to remove more than 95% of 2 micron particles.

Process steam

Porvair's process steam filters are used where clean, dry steam is critical for plant performance and continuous operation, but where there is no direct contact with the manufactured product.

Porvair's Sinterflo® stainless steel filter elements are available in high quality 316L sintered metal fibre, metal mesh and sintered metal powder media. Our elements have an exceptional dirt holding capacity and are designed to withstand demanding temperature and pressure conditions.

All components used in the construction of our elements are FDA approved to 21CFR, manufactured according to DIN EN ISO 9001 and meet or exceed the latest EC Directives for Food Contact.
