For same size filter cartridge, the pleated type has times of filtration area of the cylindrical type’s.
What is the filter media of stainless steel pleated mesh filter cartridge and cylindrical mesh filter cartridge
Stainless steel wire mesh/ wire cloth, stainless steel sintered metal fiber felt, and stainless steel sintered wire mesh ( multi-layer wire mesh diffusion bonded ), sintered porous metal powder are the three main type of filter media for filter cartridge. One single type or any combination of types can be used.
The wire mesh and sintered mesh have the surface filtration property. The solids/ impurities are stopped by the mesh and stay/ accumulated on the mesh surface. The solid can be easily removed or collected during the cleaning process.
Sintered metal fiber felt has 3D porous structure as the metal fiber laid layer by layer and diffusion bonded. The porous structure can capture the solids and have high dirty holding capacity. The filtration is in-depth filtration similar as non-woven media.
