Sintered filters are being used in an increasing number of applications. These sintered filters are made from bronze, stainless steel or polyethylene. Sintered filters are characterized by narrow tolerances, a good price/quality ratio and a broad filter range of 0.5 µm to 200 µm for SS and 8 µm to 100µm for bronze. THN can supply a wide range of standard sintered filters, also known as PUKS. As well as its standard range, THN can also supply many customized sintered filters. We design and develop these together with our customers so we can supply sintered filters that match their exact specifications.
The main characteristics of sintered filters are:
- High temperature resistance
- Thermal stability
- Good resistance to corrosion
- High mechanical strength
- Flexible design
- Self-supporting molded sections suitable for high pressure differentials
SIKA-B: These are sintered porous bronze parts produced from spherical bronze powder. These items are highly corrosion resistant, are characterized by a high structural stability and strength, they are self-supporting and suitable for high pressure differentials.
SIKA-R: These are sintered porous SS parts produced from irregularly shaped SS powder, generally AISI 316L. They are stronger than bronze filters because of the powder's irregular shape. They are also suitable for higher temperatures.
PUKS are sintered mufflers with a threaded connection. The sintered mufflers are available in bronze and stainless steel finishes. We have an extensive standard range of the most commonly used PUKS in stock.View the PUKS range
Custom sintered filters
The growing demand for custom sintered filters means that a major proportion of the sintered filters that THN supplies are customized. We work closely with our customers to design and develop sintered filters that meet their exacting specifications. Would you like to know what we can do for you with custom sintered filters.Read more about custom sintered filters
