Sintered metal mesh filter basket strainer is mainly used for coarse filtration with low contamination but may under high pressure.
The flow direction is usually from inside to outside, thus the dirt / impurity can be strained in the sintered metal mesh basket and then be easily removed during maintenance or automatic backwashing. The basket strainer is absolutely cleanable and reusable.
As for piping system, strainers are of great importance to protect equipment, such as pumps, meters, valves, other mechanical parts etc. from potential damage due to impurity and other foreign particles carried by the process fluid (oil, water, etc).
Sintered wire mesh with perforated metal sheet is the mostly used material for the filter basket strainer. As this Type C sintered mesh can be self-support and easily forming, and it can withstand higher pressure than ordinary spot welded wire mesh.
Customization of sintered metal mesh filter basket strainer
316 (1.4401), 316L (1.4404), 304, 304L stainless steel are the among the standard material for sintered metal mesh filter basket strainer.
Other exotic materials are also available as request, such as 310S, 904L, Hastelloy C276, Hastelloy C22, Monel 400, Inconel 625, etc.
The hardware / end fitting material can be different with the sintered metal mesh.
