Sintered mesh pleated filters
Sintered mesh pleated filters use special designed sintered wire mesh and have more filtration area.
Sintered mesh pleated filters have more filtration area (often times of ) than the cylindrical sintered mesh filters. The sintered wire mesh is folded by the pleating machine. The pleat quantity, height and depth determine the filtration area of the pleated filter.
The sintered wire mesh used in pleated filter is often thinner and with less layers than ordinary sintered mesh filters. Single layer, double layer and three layer sintered wire mesh are the mostly used type. Sometimes the 4 layer sintered wire mesh can also make the self-supported star pleat filters, which is with less pleats but larger pleat depth than sintered mesh pleated filter cartridges.
