Porvair introduces new sintered fibre mesh composite filter elements

10 Jan 2019

Porvair Filtration Group is delighted to announce the addition of the Sinterflo® FMC, a fibre mesh composite for filter elements, to its range of Sinterflo® products.

The Sinterflo® FMC is specifically designed for the removal of particulates from challenging gaseous environments. The new media boasts many benefits, including; resistance to high temperatures and corrosive environments, design and engineering versatility and minimal maintenance costs. Its fine pore surface layer enhances surface filtration. Other features include:

  • a highly permeable support structure, ensuring reverse jet cleaning energy is delivered to the filter’s outer surface thus enhancing particulate cake removal, keeping operating pressure loss to a minimum
  • multilayer internal support meshes providing mechanical strength removing the need for additional support structure in low pressure applications
  • reliable emission control

The self-supporting Sinterflo® FMC differs from the rest of the Sinterflo® range due to its multilayer internal mesh support structure and fine fibre surface layer. The Sinterflo® FMC filter elements are ideal for continuous on stream reverse jet cleaning applications where optimum product recovery is required. With its asymmetrical pore structure, Sinterflo® FMC media is designed to facilitate surface filtration capturing particulate on the outer flow in surface.

Ian Boxall, Technical Director, comments:
“We are proud to announce the launch of the new Sinterflo® FMC, which boasts many features, including a sinterbonded, asymmetric structure, reliable removal efficiency, emission control and excellent regeneration characteristics.

Sinterflo® FMC complements Porvair’s existing Sinterflo® range, and allows us to provide filtration solutions to a wider range of applications.”
