Microsieves, microfilter, micro membranes
Microfilters or micro membranes with hole or slit widths from single digit micron range down to 300nm find their way into a variety of applications, such as environmental, food, pharmacy and biotechnology, in optical, fluidic, mechanic or electronic Systems.
The micro-hole structures are used e.g. for filtration or separation. In this way, microorganisms and bacteria are filtered out of water or liquids like milk, or particles are separated out of gases. Other applications use such structures for the enrichment of particles for analytical purposes.
Also sieving of powders with defined particle sizes is possible with temicon’s micro sieves. The temicon technology allows the manufacturing of micro filters with customized rounded edges without burrs in order to optimize the cleaning.
