Perfectly adapted to process needs

Two main factors are influencing the overall performance of gauzes in ammonia oxidation: Composition and Structure.

Our adapted flat-bed knitting technology has taken gauze designs many steps further by moving them into the 3rd dimension. All our gauzes, no matter if single- or multi-layer, are not just a conventional arrangement of wires like in any flat gauze, but are real three-dimensional structures. Dedicated amounts of wires are oriented out of the layer-plane resulting in optimized spatial arrangement to achieve maximum contact with the gas mix.
