Five-Layer High Flow Filter Media

Special High Porosity Flow Media

High Performance BWM™ Five-Layer Filter Media

High strength, high permeability with high cleaning efficiency make BWM™ an excellent choice for manual and self-discharging pressure Nutsche filters. Similar in construction to our TWM™ five-layer filter media, BWM™ comprises five specially chosen weave types laminated together offering a unique combination of cleanability and high strength. BWM™ derives its superior characteristics from the flow distribution and structural support layers. These layers are progressively larger aperture plain square weave meshes. Since their apertures are significantly greater than the filtration layer, and they progress in size, the possibility of particulate entrapment in them is completely eliminated. Thus, particles finer than the filtration layer readily pass through unobstructed.

BWM™ is manufactured to a final thickness of 2.41 mm (0.095"); if a thicker plate is required, additional layers of support mesh can easily be added. In addition to being precoat compatible, the barrier-type filtration design means that contaminants are collected on the surface of the filter, providing high filtration accuracy and unsurpassed cleanability via onstream backwashing, Unlike depth-type filtration media such as sintered powder or fiber, which suffer internal clogging and reduced permeability, the long-term reusability of BWM™ media means lower replacement costs and less downtime for your process, even in the most demanding applications.
