Since 1973 filtertechnik.Europe has continuously expanded in the field of filtration of liquid and high-viscosity media.

The result of years of experience of wire cloth and precise weaving techniques is a wide range of metallic filters especially suited to applications featuring high pressure and  temperature. Wire cloth filter medium is particularly well suited in plastic processing environments. Production demands made on the quality of the product, as well as on safety and stability, are always rising. Therefore the demands on the purity of employed materials increase too.

Undesirable impurities such as metal, glass, sand or cracked materials are to be removed from the melt. Thus screen changers and filter media have to meet the highest demands; filtertechnik. Europe therefore operates the quality management system - ISO 9001:2000.

Wire cloth is the perfect filter media – giving defined and reproducible properties in production. Square mesh wire cloth has easily determinable geometric apertures with restricted tolerances – porosity is therefore constant over the entire area. The beneficial characteristics can be enhanced by arranging different wire cloth specifications in a combination of multiple layers i.e. a filter pack.
