At the FILTECH in Cologne, the world’s leading event and conference for filtration, the SOLIDWEAVE business unit from GKD – GEBR. KUFFERATH AG will be presenting ground-breaking findings on the erosion behaviour of plain dutch weave meshes and the resulting new product development Porometric. This three dimensional mesh construction offers considerably higher porosity and air permeability while at the same time practically halving local pore velocity, thus surpassing all other high-performance filter meshes on the market in its efficiency. The second highlight at the trade fair will be GKD’s flow-optimised mesh type ODW 6 for mechanical wastewater processing. With a pore size of just 6 ?m and – compared to other products on the market – a 3-times higher throughput rate, this single-layer mesh construction represents the long awaited alternative to sand filters. And, to round off its hat trick, SOLIDWEAVE will be featuring the GKD-developed method for numerical simulation of the bubble point test. With this method, the mesh experts can quickly and precisely determine the largest pore size for all conventional filter meshes and can thus fulfil the most stringent of performance standards for filter media.
