Superior Filtration and Desalination Alloys Using Non-Ferrous Metals

Non-ferrous metals are not iron-based, meaning they are nonmagnetic and, most importantly, rust-resistant. The corrosion resistance is a significant plus in water purification and desalination. These metals also have anti-microbial properties, making them ideal materials for drinking water and food processing.

Depending on the needs of your operation, we offer a range of non-ferrous metals, from titanium for desalination to aluminum brass for use with clean, unpolluted seawater. The proper non-ferrous metals for heat exchanger and other equipment parts depend on the application and process. Our team, with over 70 years in the industry, can help you select the best material for your project.

Advantages of Non-Ferrous Metal Alloys

From corrosion resistance to strength-to-weight ratio, non-ferrous alloys are superior materials for the manufacturing of filtration devices. With hundreds of grades and substances, we can help you find the material with the performance criteria to meet your needs. Beyond the obvious corrosion benefits, non-ferrous metals have several advantages over other alloys:
