(Booth 624) is introducing Hydrolox, a new technology to the industrial filtration market, produced from unique process technology that delivers superior filtration performance versus incumbents. Today’s utilities and industrial users are demanding higher performance filtration; filters that deliver improved collection efficiency with lower operating costs. Historically, industrial filtration felt was produced through a traditional needle loom which has met some market needs with a specific balance of properties. Hydrolox filter media, available only from Bondex, combines the benefits of needle loom fiber entangling with revolutionary hydroentangling technology to deliver industry leading dust collection performance. The phenomena of entangling fibers with high pressure water jets creates a unique balance of lower pore size in a strong media.
Hydrolox represents a new paradigm in filtration by delivering a product with dramatically improved filtration efficiency, an inherent ability to promote surface dust collection, lower pressure drop over time, and reduction in pulse cycle times. Additionally, Hydrolox HCE is available as a family of filtration media using fine fibers that deliver even higher collection efficiency performance, comparable to membrane laminated needlefelt. Hydrolox and Hydrolox HCE are available in PPS, PET, Aramid, PTFE, Polyimide, Acrylic and others, in weights up to 17 oz/yd2¬.
