UK-based Technical Absorbents (TAL) will exhibit at FILTECH in October with its Super Absorbent Fibre (SAF) technology. The expo is one of the largest and most important filtration events world-wide, and is ideal for all those concerned with designing, improving, purchasing, selling or researching filtration and separation equipment and services. It will take place between October 22-24 at Rhein-Main-Hallen in Wiesbaden, Germany.

TAL will join over 300 global exhibitors as it demonstrates how its technology can be used to effectively remove water from aviation fuel, automotive fuel and hydraulic oil. TAL will exhibit on stand M4, Hall 4 and will be displaying its SAF fiber and fabric technologies, while also having its development specialists on-hand to provide expertise and advice if required.

A significant reason for the majority of oil and fuel system failures is the presence of high water levels in dissolved, dispersed and free water. SAF-based filter media fabrics can remove both dispersed and free water to very low ppm levels at industry leading rates says the company. This results in reduced fuel and oil degradation, and provides the required filter quality for efficient machine operation.

“SAF is a key component for a wide range of enhanced nonwoven filter media fabrics that are designed for the removal of water and particulates from aviation fuel, automotive diesel and a wide range of oils,” says TAL technical sales manager Dave Hill. “Such fabrics help reduce problems associated with water contamination in such situations. Its versatility gives rise to cost savings over traditional cellulosic-based absorption media, while offering full compliance potential to stringent international filtration standards.”
