Sinterflo® P Sintered Metal Powder

A robust material manufactured from sinter-bonded metal powders. Primarily produced in 316L grade for use in temperatures up to 540ºC (1,004ºF), depending on process conditions, and offering resistance to most chemicals, Sinterflo® P media can also be produced in other grades of stainless steel and alloys such as Inconel®, Hastelloy®and Monel®. Sinterflo® P powder media can be manufactured in both disc format or in cylinder format. For cylinders, our isostatic pressing ensures greater media uniformity with no welds, leading to increased corrosion resistance.

Typical applications
  • Catalyst recovery and retention
  • Gasification
  • Chemical production
  • Polymer melt
  • Slurry oils
  • Steam filtrationCulinary steam
  • Process steam
Features and benefits
  • Resistant to high temperatures and corrosive environments
  • Suitable for aggressive air and liquid filtration applications.
  • Strength and robustness
  • Ensures reliability and longer on-stream service life.
  • Excellent media uniformity
  • Allows consistent filtration and effective loading.
  • Seamless structure
