High porosity, mechanical stability, flexibility and absolutely consistent distribution of pores are the key features of filter media in the YMAX® family. These multilayered blended meshes made of monofilament stainless steel wires and metallic fibers combine surface and depth filtration in a single media. The specific structure of YMAX® has proven its worth in terms of reliable particle retention, especially in applications in solid/liquid filtration in the range of 5 to 100 ?m. Available in stainless steel or as blended mesh of stainless steel combined with synthetic fibers made of materials like PTFE or ARAMID, the range of YMAX® media offers versatile application potential. At the ACHEMA 2006, the internationally renowned technical weaving mill for wire mesh made of metal, plastics or fibers, GKD – Gebr. Kufferath AG, Düren, will be presenting not only the various YMAX® types but also the modularly expandable compact filter unit MAX Flow®.
