Mott has been the leader in both crude terephthalic acid (CTA) and purified terephthalic acid (PTA) for decades using both HyPulse® LSI and LSM technologies. Mott liquid filters are easily configurable to handle multiple wash and purge steps necessary in the CTA and PTA processes to ensure product quality. Mott filters reduce caustic acid consumption in the CRU, reduce organic loads to wastewater treatment and can recover up to 2 wt.% solids from CTA or PTA applications. For applications designed around corrosion metal control, the Mott LSI can act as an intermediate filter, removing precipitated corrosion metals before downstream processing. The average return on investment for a Mott LSI in a CTA or PTA application is 2 years.

Engineers run into design challenges every day and we help overcome them. Consider some of the below design characteristics when engineering a custom filtration or flow control product:
We make products from extremely small drug implants and building size filtration systems. Custom designing our products to fit into your product or process is what we do. See a starting list of porous metal product geometry. Our customers often require a integration into hardware and housings - we do that, too. Forming, machining, brazing, and welding are just some of the capabilities we use to customize dimensions or integrate our product to hardware connections.
Optimizing performance lets our customers bring the best product to market. Example benefits include improved yields and processing efficiency, faster instrument response times, and better quality product produced. Our design teams will translate your desired product specifications and process needs to maximize your capabilities. Just some of the custom performance capabilities are listed below:
Our customers may choose from an extensive list of material options to meet the specifications of their product application. We even source new materials through our supply chain for some of the most extreme technology advancements. Below are just some of the options available:
A virtually infinite combination of hardware connections are available for design. We are capable of sourcing and assembling the connection you desire using years of experience and special equipment. For example, welding porous metal products is significantly different than solid to solid. If done improperly, blowouts can occur or leak paths can form if done improperly, causing waste and poor performance. Additionally, when assembling porous metal media into products, surface damage can occur which will dramatically impact the products performance. We're experienced in all types of welding an assembly, use our manufacturing capability to your advantage.
Mission critical applications often require a host of unique properties and desired levels of cleanliness. Take advantage of our organic free processes and our Class 100 (ISO 5) and Class 10,000 (ISO 7) clean room manufacturing capabilities if your product and industry demands top cleanliness. In addition, post-treatments can be used to achieve additional performance characteristics, such as hydrophobic properties or additional strength. Some of these capabilities include:
High regulated and specialized industries require significant quality reviews, process documentation, and inspection and test plans. Experienced with medical, pharmaceutical, automotive, aerospace, nuclear, and other industries, we are ready to handle complex quality reporting requirements. Our customers often have specific agency approvals and tests and request specific sampling plans - send them our way. Here are a few examples of what we handle:
In addition, our engineering teams have years of experience with the latest design specifications of industries like semiconductor, medical, and aerospace. Save time and effort by using their knowledge of filtration and flow control applications by having them design with you.
Packaging and shipping needs should be considered with the design process as many options are available. For example, certain industries require very specific bagging requirements to minimize particle contribution and utilize nylon or barefoot bags vice polymer.
