Ballast Water

At Porous Metal Filters, we specialize in producing metal filters from woven stainless wire mesh, porous metal, and metallic fibers. Our state-of-the-art diffusion bonding (metal sintering) process ensures a strong, reliable media that is ideally suited for ballast water filtration. PMF’s application and engineering staff are here to support your design needs that are specific to your system and processes. Our media filter has unparalleled performance in removing sediment and organic matter.
