Porous Ceramic Filters

Specific Surface, Inc. has licensed the 3DPTM process for the production of porous ceramic filters with complex internal structures. The flexibility of 3DPTM allows the filter design to be tailored by a combination of geometry and particle size. This results in filter products with up to 10 times greater efficiency than conventional filters. One use of their products is in coal-burning power plants, which use the filters to remove particles from stack gases.
