Filterfab - filtration welded-seams

By: Filterfab Quebec  09-12-2011

Beneficial to many applications, the hot air welding technique is used instead of the traditional sewn seams. Increased efficiency is one of the major benefits – no needle holes equals increased filtration, an important factor when choosing a filter for your use.

The manufacturing process in hot welding is fairly simple. The two edges of the felt are heated and pressed together, forming what looks like an over lapped seam. Special continually-operating machines, resembling sewing machines, press the felt together and advance it to the hot air nozzle. Heat is applied to the seam edges to their softening/melting point without heating the rest of the felt creating a uniform seam with no interruptions or stoppages.

Although welded seams are not feasible for all filter applications, the benefits over traditional sewn seams are clear.

Filterfab - filtration multi-pleated

Filterfab offers the multi-pleat filter in several fabrics at this time but is constantly developing new materials to continue the improvement of the product and meet the industries individual requirements. The multi-pleated filter element is designed to allow greater gas flow and has more surface filtration area than standard filter bags of the same length.


Filterfab - filtration anti-static

Antistatic needlefelt utilizes a woven scrim comprised partially of stainless steel yarns in both the warp and ?ll directions thus creating a needlefelt which provides uniform static-dissipating properties. As most ?bers are not good conductors of electricity it is necessary to modify standard needlefelts with the introduction of conductive materials.


Filterfab - filtration ptfe-membrane

Acting as dust cake requiring no pre- coat before or during operation, the PTFE membrane preserves the ?lter substrates integrity while maintaining optimum air?ow at a reduced pressure drop. Thermally stable up to 550º F its applications include baghouses, dust collection and air pollution control devices and is available for pulse-jet, plenum pulse, reverse air and shaker bags.


Filterfab - filtration

Variables such as temperature, moisture level, particulate size, gas-stream chemistry, air-to-cloth ratios, particulate abrasives and the myriad of mechanical factors are all taken into consideration to choose the best fabric suited to your system. Felt ?lter bags are used in pulse-jet collectors and woven ?lter bags are used in reverse air or shaker baghouses.


Filterfab - filtration vibrair

Located in the heart of the Canadian aluminum refining industry, the Filterfab Quebec facility has been equipped with the latest hi-tech equipment necessary to manufacture Vibrair™ filter bags. Computerized cutting and sewing machines are used to manufacture high quality precision vibrair™ filter bags eliminating the frequent inconsistencies found in standard manual manufacturing.
