Filtration of microplastics

Are you looking for efficient and sustainable solutions to reduce the entry of microplastics into the sewage system?

Here we go into the depths

The successful retention of microplastics

The devastating effects that microplastic emissions have on nature and our environment are well-known - as is the fact that a complete avoidance of microplastics is hardly realisable in the near future. This makes early action all the more important. Most microplastics enter the environment with precipitation and wastewater.

In our exclusive technical article, we specifically address challenges and solutions for filtration with microplastics, in which effective and sustainable filter media play a central role.

Find out where the possible entry paths of microplastics are in households and industry, why the use of filter media made of metal wire mesh is ideal here and what is important in their development.

In Germany, about 330,000 t of microplastics are released into the environment every year.

Filters in washing machines, but also in street drains, retain the particles that pose the greatest danger at an early stage.

With a filter fineness adapted to the optimum flow rate, metal wire mesh ensures maximum filter capacity.

Multi-talent metal wire mesh

Metal wire mesh is created from the predefined connection of warp and weft wires, which produce different mesh patterns depending on the choice of wires as well as the mesh shape. Above all, they are exact geometric structures whose pore sizes and thus the material and flow properties can be precisely defined.
They enable a consistent filter performance over the entire filter area, are versatile to process and have very good regenerability and recyclability.
Depending on the system, the mesh is individually shaped. Regardless of whether as a cylindrical water filter or as a cut-to-size mesh: filter media made of woven wire cloth are manufactured in such a way that they can also be easily integrated into existing systems.
