The award recognizes the efforts of nonwoven based filtration producers, honoring their continuous momentum in the search for new solutions and sustained high standards. Each nominee will present their entry at Filtrex on Tuesday the 14th.
The nominees are:
- Extia 1000 by Ahlstrom-Munksjö: Extia is a 100% synthetic, highly durable, pulse cleanable filter media, designed to last longer in all operating conditions. Extia can extend filtration lifetime, while effectively removing coarse particulates at a lower level of pressure drop.
- micronAir Gas Shield by Freudenberg: The newest innovation from Freudenberg Filtration Technologies’ to reliably protect passengers against harmful gases and unpleasant odors, micronAir Gas Shield is a premium activated carbon selection for automotive cabin air filters. Three regionally customized activated carbon combinations are available to adsorb the most harmful gases and unpleasant odors.
- FiberFind-AI module of Geodict software by Math2Market: The innovative and easy-to-use material simulator GeoDict is the most complete solution for multi-scale 3D image processing and material modelling. FiberFind uses modelled nonwoven microstructures to train a neural network to label binder with artificial 3-D scans. After training, the neural network also recognizes the binder in 3-D scans of real nonwovens.
- Welstrat by Welspun: Designed for industrial filtration, Welstrat is a singed and calendared specialty needlefelt, suitable for mid temperature ranges from 140° to 180°C. Welstrat offers excellent acid, alkali and hydrolysis resistance. High air permeability and lower mean pore size results in better efficiency and less energy consumption.
