After we all witnessed the water crisis in Flint, Michigan our water safety is not necessarily guaranteed. Any oversight, even the smallest oversight can lead to a significant health crisis when the water supply has been contaminated. Since this water crisis you will notice there is more of a concern and interest in water filtration and purification.
Sintered wire mesh can be a part of the water purity solution. It is known as a highly reliable filtering cloth and uses multiple layers of woven wire cloth to filter out contaminants as small as two microns! Sintered wire mesh is ideal for water filtration due to its strength, its resistance to corrosion, ease of cleaning, and its long lifespan.
Our 5-layer laminate is a standard and widely used type of sintered wire mesh . A single layer of fine woven wire mesh is placed between two layers of coarser square woven meshes, which is then added to two layers of a strong Dutch woven wire mesh and sintered together to form a strong plate. The single layer of fine woven wire mesh acts as the filtration layer and can be customized to meet a filtration rating, ranging from 1 micron to 200 microns.
