Porous Sintered Metals
We can offer you a complete range of custom-made filters for your specific porous metal applications. As well as the standard tin-bronze and 316 stainless steel materials, we can offer nickel bronze and also pure copper sinters. Post-sinter pressing can optionally be used to size your components to a high degree of accuracy. Additionally, a standard line of discs, tubes, sheets and threaded filter elements is available.

Here are some new specs for porous bronze which supercede those above. The tables show coarser and finer grades than those previously noted, and there is an even finer 5-micron filtration grade now available too. Further data will be added as it becomes available. Hopefully the data is consistent from the above table to the one following...
