The chemical, pharmaceutical, automotive, aerospace and offshore industries: efficient filtration technology is a vital part of complex production and processing in almost every sector. However not everyone is aware that the required efficiency and reliability in complex filtration processes are often only possible with wire mesh. Wire mesh is often associated solely with its best-known application – screening. The world-leading technical weaver GKD – Gebr. Kufferath AG – was one of the first to recognise the potential of woven media for critical tasks in process technology. As a result they specialised in the development of optimised process-specific woven media as high-tech structures. Process industries worldwide are increasingly utilising the significant advantages of made-to-measure filter media which are making processes a great deal simpler, more efficient and more reliable thanks to new material combinations and weaving technology.
