Metal filter mesh
When the highest demands apply
For the mechanical separation of solid-liquid or solid-gaseous mixtures, filter media are used which have to meet different requirements depending on the application and function. High precision is a fundamental requirement for most cases in almost all industries for downstream processes.
MINIMESH® filter meshes have been used for filtration for more than 100 years. They conquered space as early as 1954 with NASA's aerospace programme. At that time, Haver & Boecker developed these filter meshes which were subject to the highest demands in terms of accuracy and effectiveness of filtration. They ensured the smooth functioning of the control systems and engines with their filter units, which had previously been considered impossible. They took part in all Apollo flights, proved themselves in the space shuttle and beyond in civil aviation to this day.
Surface, depth and cross-flow filtration are elementary filtration applications for MINIMESH® filter meshes. As if that were not enough, they are also used for your more advanced applications:
- Drying processes
- Thermal, electronic and acoustic applications
MINIMESH® filter meshes are suitable for all common processing and converting methods. In this way, we can offer you appropriately equipped filter meshes for every application, so that you achieve an optimum result.

Compared to other filter media, the specific properties of a wire mesh fabric can be precisely described and defined geometrically by weave type, wire diameter and mesh count. This is a significant advantage for you as a user and manufacturer of metal mesh filters, as the geometric pore size and permeability can be calculated precisely.
Using new theoretical calculation methods, we have further developed the proven MINIMESH® metal filter mesh fabric into the filter braids generation MINIMESH® S.
MINIMESH® S filter braids have an optimised pore size geometry. These precision pores and the flow-optimised fabric structure result in increased selectivity and flow performance.
With a view to your individual requirements, this means: We can optimally design filter fabrics in advance and produce them directly to fit the respective system design - without any complex measurement technology and cost-intensive tests in advance.
- A high flow rate thanks to a flow-optimised fabric structure
- Optimum selectivity: glass bead-tested precision pores
- Energy efficiency thanks to a low pressure loss
- Precisely predeterminable filter properties even after processing and in extremely shaped areas
- Safe further processing
- Long filter life: easy cleaning and a low blockage tendency
- A high mechanical strength
- Temperature resistance
- Resistant to chemicals and physical influences
Verification of these properties is carried out in cooperation with the Institute for Mechanical Process Engineering, IMVT.
