If large filter surfaces in small volumes are required for efficient filtering, Sefar offers a wide range of medical pleating solutions. In pleating, up to five different fabric layers can be welded together at the edges, folded and then cut to the desired number of pleats. Mesh fabric can be combined with a non-woven material for certain applications as well. These pleated elements are available in different dimensions, with an unlimited number of pleats as well as in endless form or cylinder shape.
Up to 5 layers (non-woven depth filter, woven surface filter) are possible
Various filter media and filter materials can be combined (synthetics, steel, glass)
Pleat width ranges from 25 to 1200 mm; 25 – 590 mm for endless pleating elements
Pleat height ranges from 6 mm (one layer) or 8 mm
(multi-layer) to 50 mm
Pleat counts are unlimited
The position of the individual fabric layers, the specification of the filter side and also the number of pleats are all very important and therefore have to be defined precisely.
