The 3D structure of the filtration mesh results in a larger filtration area, and thereby also increased permeability.
The optimized filtration performance of POROMETRIC has been demonstrated in various field tests.

POROMETRIC can be used in virtually all sectors. The benefits of the premium filtration mesh are not only provided when filtering water, ballast water (sea water), polymers, or gas. POROMETRIC is the new benchmark in terms of filtration.
To date, optimized dutch weave from GKD has been the benchmark for many filtration applications. A further development such as POROMETRIC is unparalleled in the market.

POROMETRIC is fundamentally a metal mesh/wire mesh. Depending on the application, plastics can also be interwoven. An overview of the materials:
Beside the wide range of applications, the mesh also offers diverse processing options:
For example, the newly developed filtration mesh is currently an important component of the RAU research project. The project of the Federal Ministry of Education and Research focuses on the environmental burden associated with microplastics from tire abrasion. Here, POROMETRIC is used in the filter baskets designed and constructed by GKD to sample the water that is washed into the storm sewer. Washed-up particles of road dirt are already sorted into individual size classes in the basket – via metallic mesh filter stages arranged one after the other. The finest filter stage employs POROMETRIC filtration mesh.
