Filter Elements

Mott manufactures porous metal filter elements in a broad range of materials, sizes, and fittings so they can be easily specified with the characteristics and configurations customers require. Mott can incorporate custom features or create completely original filter element designs for specialized needs. Mott filter elements also come in a variety of different alloys, each with their own special benefits and application purposes. Our filter elements are a popular choice for many industrial filtration applications due to their heat, corrosion, and physical wear resistance.

Mott LSI and GSV filters are designed for clean-in-place performance, meaning filter elements can discharge cake build-up without having to open the filter for maintenance. Once a terminal pressure drop has been reached, the cleaning cycle automatically initiates to discharge cake build-up through gas assisted pulse or manually through a backwash cycle.

Particles will embed in the filter media over time, requiring the elements to be cleaned by a third-party company. Various cleaning techniques can be used to prolong life of the elements. For a recommendation of a cleaning company, please contact a Mott representative. It is recommended you keep a spare set of filter elements to continue operations while elements are being cleaned.

Design Capabilities

Depending on your needs, Mott can provide just the filter elements, a vessel and elements, or provide you a full turnkey system with the vessel, frame, piping, instruments, and controls

Relevant Services

Destructive Element Analysis – Send us one of your elements for various analyses to determine the remaining lifetime and filtration efficiency of your filters.

Filter Feasibility Testing – Want a recommendation on the correct filter media, alloy, and backwash frequency for your process? Coordinate with a Mott representative to send us a sample of your feed stock to our lab to determine the correct filtration design for your process.

Preventative Maintenance Cycles – Consult with a Mott representative about utilizing a pre-determined lab testing and cleaning schedule to avoid costly downtime for your process
