PMM Medium

A thin sintered matrix of stainless powder within the pore structure of sintered, stainless steel, woven-wire mesh, PMM medium combines the best qualities of our PSS sintered powder and Rigimesh sintered, woven-wire-mesh media. The thin woven-wire-mesh support structure is exceptionally strong and the composite is quite ductile.

The medium has a smooth surface and excellent uniformity. It is an excellent choice for solid separation and solids recovery applications. In both liquid and gas service, this filter medium will function as an exceptionally high-performance septum.

Standard material of construction is all 316L Stainless Steel, but other alloys, such as Inconel 304, and 310 Stainless Steel are available on special order.

Major Advantages

Features

  • Very fine removal efficiencies
  • Thin, pleatable filter medium
  • Repeatedly cleanable

Benefits

  • Provides efficient cake formation and release for solids recovery applications
  • Provides higher surface area
