Stainless Steel Crimped Filter Elements
SWIFTMESH® Crimped Construction Stainless Filter Elements
We offer crimped construction stainless steel filter elements, designed for use in industrial process filter cartridges often used in applications for batch processing.
These filter element 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.
Stainless Steel Filter Elements Designed for Harsh Environments
Made entirely of 304 or 316 stainless steel industrial filter process cartridges utilizing crimped construction are cleanable, reusable, and can withstand differential pressures up to 60 PSI (300 PSID elements are also available).
Stainless steel crimped filter elements can withstand temperatures up to 500°F (260°C), higher than the standard temperature of 250° F. These filter elements are also unaffected by most corrosive fluids.
SWIFTMESH stainless steel filter elements are cleanable, and can be 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.
