Sintered metal filters are metal filters that have undergone the sintering process The sintering process begins with powdered metal particles and bonds them at temperatures lower than their melting points through the process of diffusion. This creates a porous, full-connected metal structure that has grain boundaries exceeding particle boundaries. This in turn yields a number of great advantages.
Advantages of Sintered Metal Filters
- High temperature capacity
- High pressure capacity
- Great Ductility
- Corrosion resistance
- High strength
These advantages make sintered metal filters ideal for a wide range of different industries and applications in which pressure or temperature extremes are common. Likewise the added strength and ductility is also a major benefit in many applications as is the filters’ ability to withstand shocks and upsets in the process. Sintered metal filters are also great for use in microfiltration systems such as those used to remove tiny particulates from liquids.
Sintered Metal Filter Materials
Sintered metal filters require materials that are able to undergo the sintering process with good results. Such materials include:
- 316L stainless steel
- HiFlow Nickel
- Hastelloy C-22
