The properties of the final component depend on the choice of raw material. The wide spectrum of alloys, powder sieving, and material structures offers a variety of products and features. Sintered filter elements are made of stainless steel, bronze, nickel based alloy, titanium and special alloyed powders or stainless steel fibre felt. All GKN sintered materials offer a self-supporting structure with high mechanical strength. Seamless layout is possible up to 1,600 mm length and 320 mm OD
in various filter grades with specified pore sizes and flow rates.
In the last years GKN developed a new high temperature filter material resisting in many reducing and oxidizing atmospheres. Inside COMSYN consortium GKN will adapt its manufacturing processes to the new material going from lab test scale to filter material evaluation in the application.
