The notch wire element is manufactured by wrapping specially treated thin stainless steel wire around the cylindrical filter frame. It has a simple structure and robust form, allowing very accurate setting of the filtering passage size. The wire is also manufactured in-house and also achieves a higher filtration than wire mesh.
Feature1 Large passing area
A wire mesh element has a multilayered structure, resulting in reduced passing area. On the other hand, a notch wire element has a single-layer structure, making it possible to secure a large passing area.
Feature2 Ease of cleaning
Because of the single-layer structure of the element, impurities adhered to the element can be easily eliminated by air blowing, and the cleaning effectiveness can be visually checked. For this advantage, many elements of this kind are used in the sanitary (food) industry.
Feature3 Robust filter
Because a single notch wire is wrapped around a cylindrical filter frame, the element is very robust. For a wire mesh element, when the requirement for the filtration accuracy is high mesh, thin wire is used. This may cause problems for strength, which must be resolved by overlapping the wire mesh in many layers (multilayered structure). On the other hand, a notch wire element with a single-layer structure will attain the required strength.
Feature4 Versatile usage
The notch wire element is applicable to high viscosity fluid and the like under any specification conditions, including high temperature and high pressure.
Feature5 Accurate filtration size
A wire mesh element has filtration accuracy distribution as defined by the Japan Industrial Standard (JIS). On the other hand, a notch wire element makes it possible to manufacture a filter of the correct size. In addition, the filtration size will not be changed after element cleaning.
