Solid Solutions for Fluid Challenges

Essentra’s parts and components solve our customers’ most challenging engineering problems.

And the need to control and regulate liquids and vapors isn’t limited by industry – and neither is our work. Just a snapshot of our solutions across industries includes:

  • Life Sciences: a host of forensic media and contaminant control products
  • Ink Control: essential parts for writing instruments and inkjet printer cartridges
  • Health Care: surgical equipment components, advanced wound care dressings, and waste removal systems
