The unique combination of a sintered powdered metal construction offered in a variety of corrosion-resistant materials such as 316LSS also offers some strong benefits over other porous media technologies, as a replacement for ceramic media, providing corrosion- and temperature-resistant operation while eliminating the cracking and breaking issues often associated with ceramics.
In many applications, our media functions as a cost-effective, direct replacement for brass and bronze powdered metal media, providing a stronger and more corrosion-resistant option. In some applications such as in medical components and semiconductor products, 316LSS is also a more generally accepted material.
This is the most obvious use for any porous material. Applied Porous Technologies, Inc. media, components, and assemblies are used in a wide assortment of filtration devices for filtering of both gasses and liquids. High mechanical strength and corrosion-resistance make this media well-suited for aggressive environments and will offer such benefits as long life and cleanability.
Applied Porous Technologies, Inc. media is available with very specific and controllable flow characteristics that can be incorporated into devices to control the flow of gases or liquids in and out of a process.
Applied Porous Technologies, Inc. porous metal media can be produced to allow free flow of gases but to not permit flames, sparks, or other ignition sources to pass through the porous structure. This somewhat unique property makes the media an excellent material for use in flame arrestor devices.
The media can be used in devices to introduce a gas into a liquid. Gas passing through the porous media into the liquid is transformed into many small bubbles that result in a ratio that maximizes the liquid's gas absorption.
Uniform porosity makes the media an excellent material for use in applicators and roll-handling equipment. Materials such as inks and coatings can be pumped through the porous media and efficiently pressed or rolled onto a substrate.
Air or nitrogen gas passing through the media can cause a dry material, such as a powder, to move with properties similar to a liquid. This enhances the flow characteristic of the material and aids in both transporting and processing.
