Porvair's Sinterflo MC septa filter elements are designed for nuclear power generating applications.

The Porvair Filtration Group has launched its Sinterflo MC septa filter elements designed for nuclear power generating applications including reactor water clean-up, radwaste processing, fuel pool clean-up and condensate polishing.

These products are also appropriate for use in fossil fuel power generating plants and other commercial applications and are available in 1 in, 2 in and custom configurations. The Porvair septa offers high strength, temperature and corrosion resistance and the ability to withstand harsh operating conditions from -50°C to 550°C (-65°F to 1,000°F).

The septa filter elements are made from Sinterflo mesh composite (MC) filter media. This is made from wire mesh and perforated metal, sintered together into a durable porous filtration medium.  They are anufactured from 316L stainless steel and can be retrofitted into existing applications.

Porvair’s septa filter elements are designed and tested to exceed industry standards for resin retention, mechanical integrity, pre-coatability and backwash efficiency, to extend run times and maximise ion exchange performance.
