Filter elements and filter media for filtration of ballast water
Ballast water filtration
Optimized plain dutch weaves (ODW) from GKD are used as filtration meshes in systems for the filtration of ballast water in marine technology.
Use of specially developed ODW metal meshes allows the strict requirements in terms of filtration quality to be met, while also handling the highly corrosive environment. The good regenerability of the wire mesh and the use of high-alloy materials such as duplex, super duplex or nickel-based materials allow long and continuous operation of the cartridge filters.
For filtration of ballast water in the shipbuilding sector, we produce specially developed stainless steel meshes, semi-finished products and filter cartridges as components for use in the corresponding filter systems of our OEM customers.
Benefits for ballast water filtration
- Optimized dutch weaves with high throughput performance
- Good regenerability and dirt holding capacity
