Croft Filters supply screen filters or flat plate filters for relatively low-viscosity fluids. Exposing the flow to a higher effective filter area results in superior filtration – and for critical applications, an array of screen filters can be inserted at certain points in the flow for even better results.
These filters can be manufactured using perforated plate supporting a fine woven wire mesh. The material and the specification of the mesh depend on the type of fluid as well as the type of impurity to be filtered.
These types of filters are generally used as an in-line process. They are found in a wide variety of applications – to give just one example, they are used in the pharmaceutical industry to separate microbial organisms from laboratory chemicals.
