MATERIALS: Mott Corp.’s porous metal products, assemblies and filters are being used in a number of medical applications (gas and liquid) requiring exacting filtration performance, precise flow specifications, biocompatibility, high-temperature resistance, and the ability to withstand aggressive thermal and chemical sterilization processes repeatedly. The company designs and manufactures porous metal products to specifically meet filtration and flow-control requirements for many medical device manufacturers and designers. These products include biocompatible porous titanium filters, implantable devices for venting or drug delivery, metal filters for test stands, spargers used in cell-culture processes, filters to prevent plugging in catheters and precision flow restrictors for the delivery of gases in life-critical systems.
