January 27, 2010

Deal adds carbon-containing composite filtration media

Hollingsworth & Vose will purchase the AQF line of patented carbon-containing composite filtration media from fellow nonwovens producer Fiberweb. The transaction, which is expected to close in the near term, will allow H&V to better serve the growing global market need for gas phase filter media.

“By adding this complementary technology and North American production asset, including improved testing capabilities, H&V is increasing the breadth of our technological capabilities. ” commented Mike Clark, vice president & general manager of H&V’s High Efficiency & Specialty Filtration Business Unit.

Carbon‐containing nonwoven technology combines particulate and gas phase filtration in one media to meet demanding customer adsorption requirements. The media are used in panel, extended surface and vbank filters for odor control, corrosion control, toxic gas removal and elimination of airborne pollutants for Industrial, IAQ and Cabin Air applications.

“The AQF technology coupled with H&V’s AFM platform and other existing technologies within H&V provides an opportunity to develop gas‐phase filtration media for new applications in air and liquid filtration,” said Per Lindblom, director of global product marketing, AFM

The AQF production line will be relocated from Fiberweb’s Simpsonville, SC plant to H&V’s Floyd, VA facility by the fourth quarter of 2010.
