Marine fuel and lube oil filtration media

Bekaert Marine and lube oil filtration media
Bekipor® is a porous 3 dimensional web of sintered stainless steel fibers. It can be used as monolayer or graded structure to filter fuel and lube oil in marine engines. Being a flexible medium, Bekipor® can be pleated and welded to enable a compact and efficient design.

High efficiency

Bekipor® offers very fine filter ratings (down to 2µm), low ΔP and efficient backwash ability. Due to the very fine filter rating, the oil and fuels remain free of contaminant. This reduces wear and damage to the engine components.

High strength

Bekipor® is the ideal filtration medium for large and heavy-duty engines. Thanks to its sturdy, sintered structure, the medium is able to resist strong engine vibrations. Made from high-quality stainless steel, Bekipor® features a good thermal and mechanical resistance ideal for advanced marine oil filtration processes. Bekipor® allows on-stream cleaning which further increases the filter lifetime.
