Purification & filtration
Specific applications: filter elements for liquids and gases.
Companies that make filter elements for liquids and gases face a multitude of different requirements that their products must meet, depending on the application involved. Oil filters have to be chemical- resistant, for example, while carbon filters used in water treatment must satisfy stringent food safety requirements. This is another sector where a clear shift is noticeable from metal to plastic.
Preferably, plastic parts must outperform their metal predecessors when it comes to dimensional stability, chemical resistance and the ability to withstand highly fluctuating temperatures. KIK knows the requirements and the conditions under which these parts must operate. We provide not only suitable parts, but also useful recommendations in the development phase.
