Turkey and South Africa is highlighting its new unique range of
100% synthetic pleatable filter media Pleatex, which sets the new
standard for pleated filter products.
These media are a unique building platform for all filter manufacturers within both air and liquid filtration. Customized weight,
air permeability and surface treatments on demand.
Pleatex is a synthetic inherent pleatable filter media, which
has pleating behavior similar to cellulose and glass fiber media, like no other synthetic media. Pleatex can be processed on
all kinds of different pleaters such as rotary pleaters, knife and
blade pleaters. Production runs show that Pleatex undertakes
faster pleating compared to other synthetic media when pleated
on a rotary pleater.
Embossed pleat packs are possible to ensure lower pressure
drop and better dust distribution. Pleatex is stiff and rigid enough
to maintain in shape also when pulsed.
Pleatex product range from MERV 8 and upwards.
Besides its new Pleatex product range, Fibertex Nonwovens
also produces a full range of different air and liquid filter media
based on needlepunch, spunlace, spunbond and highloft production technologies.
Fil-Tec’s American made products for the filter bag industry will
help customers improve their efficiencies and reduce cost. Fil-Tec manufactures an extensive line of sewing thread and bobbins made from fiberglass, Nomex, polyester, PTFE and Conex
fibers designed to keep machines and tubers running. Fil-Tec’s
line of snap band gasket material has become the industry standard, lowering sewing room costs by eliminating extra sewing
steps. Fil-Tec’s cuff bead and static dissipation ground wire give
customers the finishing touches to a superior filter bag. Fil-Tec’s
solutions extend to the baghouse with its door seal products for
customers’ baghouse access doors.
Fil-Tec Inc. is introducing a new 9 lb. put up of fiberglass sewing thread for tubers designed to increase tuber efficiency, its new
Conex easy sew thread for Nomex and other high temp bags, and
its new line of high temp snap band gaskets.
Continuous welding of filtration material requires the highest
level of precision. The Herrmann Ultrasonics Microbond CSI system, consisting of the VE Actuator, Microgap controller and high-performance Ultrabond generator guarantees consistent weld
quality. Integrated in all Microbond systems is the patented Microgap control process, which ensures constant production quality via closed loop processing by monitoring the gap between the
sonotrode and the anvil
The Microbond CSI
technology energy is
only directed to the
weld bond points and
does not further restrict
the filter laminate, nor
change the fiber content; with typical thermal bonding heat radiates outside the bond zone.
Small bond points safeguard against restricted airflow, a common problem when using adhesives.
Multi-laminate structures with/without mesh reinforcement
can simultaneously be incorporated.
Pinholes are eliminated using the Microbond CSI technology.
Loss of performance due to bonding errors is reduced to
Herrmann Ultrasonics has become the technology leader in
ultrasonic welding by developing the most advanced products,
providing ultrasonics engineering expertise and total solution offerings. The ultrasonic process can be used in the final assembly
of the filtration product. Herrmann Ultrasonics is focused on providing ultrasonic welding technology for various markets such as
the consumer, medical, food, hygiene and automotive industries.
