SWIFTMESH™ — Crimped Construction Stainless Filter Elements
We offer crimped construction, a process particularly applicable for Industrial Process Cartridges. Industrial process cartridges are often used in applications for batch processing. These cartridges are typically pleated or cylindrical (wrapped), with a lightweight core and a support ring. Industrial process cartridges overcome the temperature and compatibility limitations of cellulose or synthetic fiber cartridges by being manufactured of stainless steel using crimping and welding, with no brazing or epoxy bonding used. Made entirely of 304 or 316 stainless steel, our process cartridges are cleanable, reusable and can withstand differential pressures up to 60 PSI (300 PSID elements are also available). These elements are also good up to 500°F (260°C) instead of the usual 250° F. Our industrial process cartridges are also unaffected by most corrosive fluids. Particle retention can be as fine as 5um. Element media can be pleated to increase surface area. Cartridges rated at 100um or finer have an underlying support layer of coarser stainless steel mesh to prevent pleat collapse.
SWIFTMESH elements are cleanable. They are easily restored to service by back flushing, ultrasonic or other nonabrasive cleaning techniques. This is particularly valuable and cost-effective in applications involving hazardous fluids. Because our elements are cleanable disposal costs are significantly reduced.
