In an expansion of its Adsorptive Filter Media technology platform, Hollingsworth & Vose plans to install a carbon composite filter media manufacturing line in the U.S.
H&V’s unique patented AFM technology combines particulate and gas phase filtration in one media to meet demanding customer adsorption requirements. Already produced at H&V’s Hatzfeld, Germany site, the AFM technology platform provides a high degree of flexibility allowing the filter media adsorption performance to be tailored to specific environments. Other benefits include low dusting, extended filter life cycle, high capacity, high efficiency and good processability.
H&V offers a broad range of sorbents, ranging from activated carbons to molecular sieves and ion exchange resins. This media is used in panel, extended surface and v-bank filters for odor control, corrosion control, toxic gas removal and elimination of airborne pollutants.
Mike Clark, Vice President & General Manager of H&V’s High Efficiency & Specialty Filtration Business Unit said, “We see a growing market need for gas phase filter media and want to bring these capabilities to our North American customers. Expanding our AFM platform is consistent with our global strategy to provide the highest quality advanced technology filtration media to meet our customers’ needs.”
