GKD introduced its porometric mesh woven filter media designed for the oil and gas exploration and water filtration markets.
The porometric mesh weave provides significantly more porosity and air permeability than traditional woven filter media. The very open 3-dimensional mesh construction maintains a constant volume flow rate, further reduces local pore velocity by up to 40 percent and increases throughput by a similar factor.
For oil and gas applications, this porometric mesh can deliver more throughput at local pore velocities. For water and wastewater filtration facilities, the mesh offers high permeability, low-pressure losses and a sharp particle retention rate
With a pore size of 150 µm, this mesh type achieves an air permeability of 4,800 l/m²/s at a pressure of 200 Pa. In contrast, a plain weave with the same pore size only manages an air permeability level of 2,500 l/m²/s at 200 Pa.
Because of the 3-dimensional slot-shaped structure with rectangular pores, particles above the required cut point are quickly and reliably separated. The open structure also offers advantages in terms of weight.
