Filtration has become vitally important in many industries. Increased focus on health and safety has led to more widespread use of air filtration to improve indoor air quality (IAQ) and water filtration systems to remove the contaminants from drinking water.
One of the primary challenges in designing effective filters is the microscopic size of the particulate that must be captured. To meet the demand for higher degrees of filtration, the filter industry has applied the advantageous characteristics of nonwoven materials to create a more effective filtration media. Nonwoven filter media offers both performance and cost advantages over traditional materials for filtration.
Nonwovens Meet a Variety of Filtration Needs
Nonwoven filter media is well-suited for a wide range of air and liquid filtration needs. As a filter media, nonwovens can be customized to meet the precise needs and specifications of the application.
Air Filtration – HVAC, Exhaust Hoods, Vacuum Cleaners, etc.
Liquid Filtration – Food & Beverage, Water, Hydraulic, etc.
Vehicle Filtration – Fuel, Oil, Engine Air, Cabin Air
Specialty Applications – Pharmaceutical/Medical, Antimicrobial, Clean Rooms, etc.
Nonwoven Air Filter Media Provides Optimal Airflow
In order to promote the health and well-being of people and the environment, regulatory agencies have put forth stringent requirements concerning air filtration. Not only does air filtration improve air quality, effective air filtration media also has a beneficial impact on the amount of energy used in the operation of HVAC systems. Nonwoven filter media provides a lower resistance to airflow, reducing the burden on the system so it can deliver the required air flow at a lower level of energy consumption. Synthetic nonwoven materials have been shown to be highly effective for capturing particulate matter while also providing the benefit of lower airflow resistance.
