Pleated wire mesh elements

MODEL CMP

MET POR metal wire mesh elements are specially design for process or service lines. These elements support high differential pressure due to its tough construction.
Pleated cartridges increase the filtration area giving longer filter life compared to the plain element. For low micron ratings an intermediate drainage mesh is pleated between the central core and the filtration mesh in order to give more strength to the pleat.
Market applications: Water, petroleum, paints, inks, adhesives, cosmetics, etc.
Different types of wire mesh are used, s wire mesh, twilled wire mesh, plain Dutch weave, twilled Dutch weave, etc all of them in stainless steel.
