Filtering Media

In the world of filters, it is the law to hear the term filtering media (MF) and in the industry of Dust Collectors it is not the exception, this is due to the fact that there is a symbiotic relationship between the collectors and the filters. Since thanks to these it is possible to capture harmful particles suspended in the air. The filters are manufactured from different Filtering Media which, depending on their construction material, is the application where they can work.

The filter media material with which cartridge type filters and bag or sleeve type filters are manufactured varies, some of these for example are:

  • Polyester
  • Cellulose
  • Nanofiber
  • Aramids

To name a few.

Each of these materials has a special characteristic, their chemical composition gives them their properties and therefore their application, thanks to this it is possible to select which Filtering Media will be used to capture a particular dust, smoke, mist or gas.

Let's talk about materials

The most common materials that filter media are made of are:

Natural Fibers / Cellulose

This material is of natural origin and is obtained from wood, it has also been used in multiple applications since its discovery. One of the main characteristics of cellulose is its irregular shape and its porosity, since its pores are very small, this causes a greater resistance to air flow to be generated, this allows to capture the micro pollutants that are suspended in the air. , but at the same time accumulates residues that can cause its saturation.

Synthetic fibers

This type of MF is composed of fibers normally made of polyester, nylon, blown glass among other materials, to provide support and firmness it can be reinforced with small strands of wire. This type of material, being synthetic, allows the fibers to be smoother and can be given the necessary thickness, thanks to this it has less resistance compared to natural fibers. This allows when designing the filters you can give the exact diameters to the pores and manipulate the air flow, obtaining a better result.

We have a wide variety of filters and spare parts for any type of Industrial Dust, Smoke and Mist Collector.

Also, natural fibers can be combined with synthetic fibers, this normally occurs when something very special is required, cellulose is used as the main material and synthetic fibers are added to provide greater efficiency and improve their properties.

Some special materials can be:

  • Glass microfiber
  • PP (Polypropylene)
  • PTFE / TF / TFL (Polytetrafluoroethylene)
  • Among many others

Compatibility

It is very important to know the properties of each of them and check their compatibility, this is normally known by the manufacturers, since the proper functioning of the Filter Media, its performance, its filtration capacity, its durability, permeability, depends on it.

If you need to find the ideal filter media to capture dust, fumes or mists, we recommend you contact us and together find the best solution.

DYNA FLO® Tips: 

  • Replace all dirty filters with new ones, it is not recommended to do it in parts.
  • Do not manually clean the filters, as you could damage them.
  • Consider in your budgets the maintenance of your collectors and the change of filters.
  • Always take into account the opinion of the collector operators.
