Porometric mesh from GKD is a new wire mesh weave developed using the company’s GeoDict simulation software. At a constant volume flow, the higher porosity of the porometric filtration mesh reduces the highest, local pore velocity by up to 40% compared to conventional filtration meshes. In addition, the slit-like pores make backwashing easy. The mesh features a geometric pore opening of 150 μm and 175 μm.
