Mott Corp. announced the availability of porous metal components and filters in a variety of refractory metal alloys including zirconium, titanium, tungsten, molybdenum, and niobium. Known for outstanding chemical resistance, high strength, and thermal stability, refractory metals can meet the most demanding operating conditions. Mott can design porous components or entire filter assemblies using refractory metals to meet various flow control or filtration requirements, to exacting tolerances and down to submicron particulate removal. With melting points from 2,400C to over 3,400C, porous components in refractory metals can meet the most demanding filtration or flow control requirements. In addition, refractory metals are electrically conductive and chemically inert and can be a suitable material for many applications where higher operating temperatures are critical. (
