Industrial Steam Filters

In processes demanding air filtration, steam sterilization, and venting applications within high-temperature environments, conventional PTFE, PVDF, and polypropylene filters often face significant challenges. Mott’s all-metal 316L SS or Nickel alloy filter cartridges, specifically designed for biotech environments exposed to elevated temperatures and oxidation stress, rise to the occasion. These robust cartridges boast differential pressure capabilities exceeding 250 psid and can operate at temperatures as high as 450°C (842°F). When compared to competing plastic membrane technologies, Mott’s Steam and Vent Filters deliver superior performance, extended service life, and more effective filtration, making them the optimal choice for such critical applications.
