Preveil Pollution Control Media

January 1, 2011

GE announced that Preveil is the new name for its 99.9% efficiency air pollution control media. The membrane laminate can help customers in certain industries lower utility costs, extend bag life and reduce particulate emissions. For example, a cement plant saved $100,000 per year in fan electricity costs, extended bag life from 1.5 to 4 years, and a steel plant reduced particulate emissions by 95%. Preveil has earned ecomagination approval following research and verification of these performance benefits. The ecomagination distinction coincides with GE's announcement that it will change the BHA Tex name to Preveil. Customers will receive the same extraordinary filtration technology, providing some of the highest efficiency filter bag media available, said Jeff Ladwig, product line manager for GE Energy Services.

Now there's simply a new name, and Preveil has been approved as an ecomagination product following GE's rigorous review process confirming the environmental and economic benefits.

The Preveil membrane is made from PTFE resins. PTFE resin is expanded into a membrane composed of millions of microscopic pores in a three-dimensional web-like structure. The membrane has a nonstick surface that operates without a dustcake and is recognized as the best achievable control technology today for fabric filters, with better cleaning and 99.9% efficiency.
