Mott Corporation, Farmington, Connecticut, USA, has shared a blog post on its website exploring the use of sintered metal filter systems in process industries. The detailed overview discusses the features and properties of sintered metal filters, explains their usage and ends with a number of application case studies.

Mott explains that sintered metal filters are noted for their high particle removal efficiency, durability, and ability to withstand harsh conditions such as high temperatures and corrosive environments. They are designed for continuous service in industries such as oil refining, chemical and petrochemical processing, and pharmaceutical manufacturing.

The filters support various cleaning methods, including backwashing, to ensure long service life and consistent performance. The post also highlights that sintered metal filter media are customisable in terms of alloy material and pore size to meet specific application requirements, enhancing filtration efficiency and operational reliability.

The post, written by Dr Kenneth L Rubow and Louise L Strange, states that the proper selection of media grade must balance the needs of the filtration application regarding particle retention, pressure drop and backwash ability. There are basically three process factors to consider: fluid velocity through the filter media, fluid viscosity and particle characteristics.
