At the FILTECH in Cologne, GKD – GEBR. KUFFERATH AG, the international technological leaders in industrial meshes, will be presenting new methods for flow-related optimisation of mesh texture. Stainless steel woven wire mesh filter media optimised in this way achieve a 25 percent higher flow rate, without any changes to the size of the mesh openings. Users will benefit from significant savings in terms of space requirements and energy consumption. GKD’s exhibition will be rounded off with a selection of products that all feature this enhanced property: cartridges for ballast water filtration, policing filters for low pressure exhaust gas recirculation in latest and next generation petrol and diesel engines, and NeverLeak filter leaves as re-screenable plate filter elements for precoat filtration applications. In short talks, Markus Knefel, Head of Research and Development at GKD, will be offering an insight into GKD’s latest studies and the company’s formidable engineering competence when it comes to the development of filter media that combine even higher efficiency with even lower pressure loss.
