The award was presented at the annual Advanced Filtration Technologies Conference which took place in April in Louisville, KY.
Porometic is GKD’s newest wire mesh and was developed using the GeoDict simulation software. This new type of mesh brings oil and gas exploration facilities more overall throughput at lower local pore velocities. For water and wastewater filtration facilities the mesh offers high permeability, low-pressure losses and a sharp particle retention rate.
Peter Wirtz, general manager of GKD’s Solid Weave Business Unit said that the company was thrilled and honored to be named the 2016 New Product of the Year, adding that the new Porometric mesh filter provides unprecedented advantages for efficient oil and gas exploration and water filtration.
“GKD is committed to bringing innovative woven metal technologies to the marketplace,” continued Wirtz. “We are proud to see our work in wire mesh acknowledged with such a prestigious award.”
