Filtration 2018 is expected to attract more than 1400 participants to advance their interests in filtration.
The Filtration website, www.filtration2018.com, provides a preliminary product preview of the exposition’s dynamic combination of new products including: meltblown systems, membrane surface technologies, ultrasonic filter pleating equipment, dust collection systems for industrial applications, gas turbine filters, efficient self-foaming filter adhesive and new filter media test rigs in accordance with the ISO 16890 method. The networking, top speakers, education and training will deliver strong value for leading suppliers and customers of filtration media and
components who exhibit and attend Filtration 2018.
Conference presentations from forward thinking companies will discuss the latest innovations in topics such as smart filters & systems, indoor air quality, high performance buildings, and material science in fibers & media. Presenters include representatives from:
- Eastman Chemical Company
- Knowlton Technologies
- The Nonwovens Institute
- Plus, Kathleen Owen, Chair of ASHRAE 52.2

Sandler will present a wide range of synthetic filtration nonwovens. Efficient pocket filter media and pleatable nonwovens for ventilation and air conditioning maintain their efficiency even after discharge. Nonwovens for cabin air and engine air filters help improve the indoor air quality in our vehicles. Fuel filter media protect the engine and contribute to efficient combustion. Synthetic vacuum cleaner bags reliably trap dirt particles and dust and foster a higher suction power.
In light of growing metropolitan areas, more and more vehicles on the roads and increasing air pollution, efficient filter media are in higher demand than ever to ensure optimum indoor air quality, particularly in public spaces. New norms and testing standards, above all the new ISO 16890, are shaping the industry. The norm bases filter classification on more realistic criteria and also takes into account the energy efficiency during operation of the filter unit.
Sandler’s new synthetic filter medium enAIRsave combines long-term performance and reduced energy usage. Multiple filter layers provide optimum dust separation across the entire width of the medium. The particles are primarily deposited in the coarse meltblown layer as well as the pre-filter layer. Air can still flow through the filter at a relatively low pressure and, consequently, at a reduced energy consumption.
Sonobond’s SeamMaster Modules are innovative tools for Original Equipment Manufacturers in the textile industry. They facilitate seaming, slitting, crosscutting, and trimming capabilities and can be integrated into special-purpose production line equipment for filter assembly. Like all machines in the SeamMaster line, the Modules feature a rotary ultrasonic system and wheel for results that are superior to those provided by stationary sonic methods. Single, dual, or multi- head arrangements are available in addition to a variety of easy-to-change pattern wheels—including a special fixture for seaming pleated filters.
Southeast Nonwovens, Inc. has all the technology you need to develop, prototype, and produce your next generation filtration products…all in one facility. The company’s material science experts will understand your requirements, design a product using our laboratory and pilot scale equipment.
