After intensive research, the internationally renowned technical weaving mill for wire mesh made of metal, plastics or fibers, GKD – Gebr. Kufferath AG, Dueren, presented the novel filter media YMAX
® at the ACHEMA 2000. This blended mesh of monofilament stainless steel wires and metallic fibers combines surface and depth filtration in a single media. Its core properties – high porosity, mechanical stability, flexibility and absolutely consistent distribution of pores – qualify this innovative media in particular for applications in the field of solid/liquid filtration in the range of 5 to 100 ?m. In the meantime, GKD has also started supplying this multilayered blended mesh in the combination stainless steel and plastic under the product name YTEX©.
