  • 2. PORO MET ® Cleanable Stainless Steel Filter Elements POROMET® Standard Sizes: Poromet elements are designed to replace standard string-wound and pleated media cartridges. They are offered in 23/8" diameter by 10, 20, 30 and 40 inch lengths. Poromet elements are offered with the following end fitting configurations: double open ends, 1" NPT, 222 double O-rings and 226 double O-rings with locking tabs. Electron Beam Welded End Fittings: Purolator’s exclusive electron beam welding process provides superior product quality at reduced costs. Heat distortion, oxidation and sensitization are eliminated. Extended Filtration Area: Poromet pleated elements have over twice the filtering area as competitive elements. Gaskets and O-rings: Standard materials are Buna-N. Other compounds are also available. Laser Marked End Fittings: Each Poromet element end fitting is permanently laser-marked for ease of identification and traceability. 316L Stainless Steel: All Poromet Series elements are made from 316L stainless steel filter media. They are ideal for temperatures up to 850˚ F, and highly corrosive applications. Electro-Polished Butt-Welded Support Cores: Purolator-manufactured cores are designed to withstand pressures up to 250 psid. Electro-polishing removes all metal burrs, so the filtered fluids pass through the elements with less restriction. Quality Control: Every Poromet element is bubble-point- tested prior to shipment to ensure product integrity and performance. For High-Temperature and High-Corrosion Processing Applications Poromet® filter elements are standard element products designed for most commercial housings as well as our own line of housings. Poromet elements are built for high-temperature and high- corrosion applications. They are superior quality filters whose performance exceeds every other competitive element. Poromet elements can lower your costs by providing longer on-stream life and years of trouble-free service. In addition, Poromet elements are easily cleaned and can help you avoid increasing disposal costs.
  • 3. POROPLATE® MEDIA A self-supporting medium made from multiple layers of woven wire cloth, sintered into a rigid, porous metal structure. Poroplate elements are cylindrical, surface-type filters that are perfect for back-flushing and repeated cleaning. Because Poroplate elements are self- supporting, expensive filter support cores are eliminated. POROMESH® MEDIA Multiple layers of diffusion- bonded wire cloth are pleated to maximize filter area and on-stream life. Poromesh media capture contaminants on the upstream surface of the filter element, where it is easily cleaned or back-flushed. POROFELT® MEDIA Microscopic, stainless steel fibers are random-laid and sintered in our proprietary diffusion bonding process. These media are then supported between two or more layers of wire cloth and pleated. Porofelt depth media traps particles deep within its complex pore structure. Porofelt elements provide finer filtration, with optimum dirt-holding capacity and permeability.
