WHAT IS FILTER EFFICIENCY AND WHY DOES IT MATTER

2020-05-29 By zhaozhao

The metal filters outperform fiberglass in aviation applications. One of the key ways that metal wire mesh and sintered metal filters surpass legacy materials like fiberglass is by providing excellent filter efficiency for a longer period of time in service.

But, what exactly is filter efficiency, and why does it matter?

Some legacy materials, like glass fiber, can achieve this level of contaminant reduction, up to about 97-98%. However, metal filter media can often achieve efficiencies of nearly 100%—a fantastic difference that translates to real money saved on replacement parts in crucial systems on military aircraft, submarines, and other extremely valuable vehicle applications! 

Legacy filtration materials, filtration efficiency gets worse as time passes, which leads to more contamination in critical fluids or air.

But METAL FILTERS CAN ENSURE CONSISTENT EFFICIENCY

The main reason is that metal filters are binderless, fixed by metal-to-metal contact points that do not deteriorate. This means no breakdown of filter performance over time. Metal filters begin with excellent efficiency ratings, and those stay consistent until the metal filter medium is changed out at the end of its life.
