Application of Sintered Filter
A sintered filter is porous, often, cylindrical metallic part manufactured through the process of sintering. Copper and metal alloys are mixed together and fused through high temperatures achieving porosity and creating a mesh. These filters are used from household appliances to industrial/chemical plants to greater effects and here we will be talking all about the application of sintered filters.
Filtration is an essential aspect of anything we do, from drinking water to gasses used as a coolant in nuclear reactors, impurities cause trouble for everyone. But not everywhere can you use a plastic filter, strainer, chalk, or standard filtration process. Sintered filters perform a very specific task and it is useful in multiple fields of applications, depending upon the microns of porousness.
Being one of the safest and secure way to filter liquid or gas, sintered filters are either prevalent or slowly being adapted into different industries.
So, here are a few places where we see a lot of application of sintered filter:
The application of sintered filters is not just limited to these industries; sea vessels, manufacturing plants and other industries also use them. It is an essential part of manufacturing, mobility and energy.
So, Why Sintered Filters?
We spoke in ad nauseam about the application of sintered filters but why sintered filters are used in the above-mentioned industries, instead of any other type of filter? There are a few vital reasons why people from such industries trusted a sintered product over all else.
- The porosity of sintered filter dictates the outward or inward flow of liquid or gas. Controlled flow of filtering material can be managed without the help of a pressure gauge.
- Sintered filters and high-pressure situations go hand in hand. When applied in pressure-rich environment, most other filter material tends to fail. You cannot use plastic or paper when the psi is extremely high. That is why sintered filters are trusted.
- It can operate in a high-temperature environment. A sintered filter steel mesh can resist heat of up to 480°C. If the material or the alloy is changed, the heat resistance also sees changes, which is not possible in any other type of filter.
The fact that metal sintered filters can be welded onto the body of the filtration unit, the hassle of getting sealings and constantly checking it is removed. Sintered filters and its lack of sealing requirement helps in elongating the lifespan.
So, application of sintered filters is varied and there are multiple reasons why they can be helpful for you.
