SINTERPORE® MULTI LAYERED SINTERED (MLS) WIRE CLOTHS

SinterPore® Multi-Layered Sintered (MLS) media is constructed of multiple layers of stainless wire mesh and is designed for precise, controlled porosity, uniform pore sizes, and distributions. SinterPore® MLS laminates are permanently bonded under precise diffusion bonding (metal sintering) conditions yielding robust monolithic materials used in a wide variety of engineering applications ranging from industrial filtration to aerospace transpiration cooling.

Standard Products And Most Common Uses Include:

  • Standard 2- and 3-layer SinterPore® fluidizing laminates with customer-specific permeability flow rates that are often used in bulk powder handling.
  • Standard 5-layer SinterPore® filter plates are used for pharmaceutical, polymer, and liquid and gas filtration.

Applications:

  • Oil and Gas
  • Pharmaceutical
  • Aerospace
  • Polymer
  • Chemical Process
  • Bulk Powder Handling (fluidization)
  • Industrial Filtration

Features And Benefits:

  • Heat and wear resistance
  • Cleanability and reusability
  • Fixed Pore Geometry
  • Robust Non-Compressible Media

Specifications:

  • Standard Sheet Sizes: 18”x48”, 24”x48”. Custom sizes available upon request. Maximum laminate size without welding is 24”x60” (larger sheets available with welds, maximum panel width with welds 120”).
  • Standard Alloys: 304, 304L, 316, 316L, Alloy20 (also available in Inconel 600 and 625, Monel, and Hastalloy upon request).
