Porvair claims that it can offer the powder handling industry the largest range of fluidisation technologies available from any single manufacturer.
The Porvair Filtration Group is a specialist in designing, developing and supplying high end porous materials for the fluidisation of powders across a range of production processes, including pharmaceuticals, food, beverage and construction. Agriculture and industrial chemical processing has also benefitted from Porvair’s experience and know-how.
The fluidisation of powders, using compressed air through a porous media to make them flow like liquids, has a range of uses, such as the efficient emptying of silos, and road and rail tankers. Porvair’s high performance range of Sinterflo stainless steel sintered mesh and Vyon sintered porous plastics offer customers powder fluidisation solutions.
All of its materials are of uniform porosity and ensure the fluidisation of powders without any dead spots.
Furthermore, Porvair’s materials exhibit high porosity and low pressure drops that result in highly efficient use of energy to pump air. The company says that they are also free-standing and robust, and unlike conventional canvas stainless steel mesh structures, can be easily cleaned.
Porvair, which has supplied the process industry with performance-driven filtration equipment for over 25 years, can custom manufacture to unique specifications, including flat beds, cones and domes that will fit most assemblies.
It manufactures in both the UK and USA and has an extensive network of sales offices and distribution channels throughout the world.
Sinterflo® and Vyon® are registgered trade marks of Pourvair products.
