Norman Filters designs and manufactures a variety of all welded filter elements in house using a proprietary manufacturing process that is field proven in austere environments. Woven wire mesh can be formed to many sizes and shapes to allow for different flow dynamics. Woven wire mesh elements operate using surface filtration which captures 100% of particles at a given micron rating. Surface based filtration allows for easy cleaning by back flushing the elements. Since particulate is not embedded in the element, regular cleaning will extend the service life of the elements. Random metal fiber elements used for high viscosity applications, commonly used for PAO fluid for radar cooling systems. Sinter bonded SS elements for low flow, low micron applications.
Norman Filters seasoned sales and engineering staff have extensive experience in a wide range of end uses- from space flight applications to subsea tiebacks and the ROV market. Our filters are designed and manufactured in our 60,000 sqft facility in Bridgeview, IL.
