Mesh water filters
Haver & Boecker manufactures metal wire mesh for various different areas of use and brings it individually into a form as a filter mesh for filtration of water as well as other applications. The result is fresh water which is clean, clear and gushes quietly out of the water tap or treated drinking water, sea water, ballast water as well as dirty water.
The variety of products which has already been realised ranges from spray regulators in the form of small, single-pass circular blanks through to large cylinders made out of a number of mesh layers. Through selection of the type of weave and the material used, the mechanical, chemical and physical properties can be adapted to the requirements of the respective application. Thus the filter cylinders which are used for treatment of ballast water have the required corrosion resistance. The structure of this filter and the production sequence are based on customer specifications, paired with the Haver & Boecker quality standard. So a filter is created by a number of mesh layers which must resist the pressure in the treatment plants. The fine filter layer is protected by a larger wire mesh and a wedge wire cylinder.
Selection of the individual support layers and the filter layer is of great importance for influencing the efficiency of the filtration. Dependent on the desired permeable pore size and the required throughflow, the filter layer is a mesh with square meshes or a MINIMESH® metal filter cloth.
The many years of experience in dealing with wires and metal wire meshes, as well as the skill of the in-house engineers, technicians and product designers allow Haver & Boecker to meet this challenge. Through cooperation with the customer and collation of know-how from both sides, innovative solutions can be developed for the individual needs for water filtration.
