STOCKHOLM - Ahlstrom-Munksjö has launched a new filtration media designed to extend filtration lifetime for Air Pollution Control applications.
Extia 1000 is described as highly durable, extending filtration lifetime by more than 40 per cent, helping customers to extend the operational duration, before needing to change the filters.
According to Giuseppe Costa, VP Product Development Filtration and Performance at Ahlstrom-Munksjö said that Extia 1000 is aiming to set the new benchmark in terms of filtration media for air pollution control cartridge applications. “Due to its unique design, Extia 1000 dramatically extends filtration life time," he said. "It also delivers highly effective removal of coarse particles at over 3 times lower level of pressure drop. Additionally, Extia 1000 proves to be much easier to convert into a filter, on both knife and rotary pleating machines.”
The company's Filtration and Performance business area develops and produces filtration materials for transportation as well as industrial applications. It also produces glass fibre media for flooring products and wind turbine blades and makes nonwoven materials for automotive, construction, textile, hygiene applications and wallcover materials.
Fulvio Capussotti, EVP Filtration and Performance noted that Extia 1000 was the first product on the Extia platform, a family of products will be built over time.
"Our product platform Extia is an excellent example of how Ahlstrom-Munksjo can leverage on its experience in manufacturing high performance filtration products to deliver new solutions for Industrial Filtration applications," he said. "Delivering high performance filtration media for industrial filtration is a priority for our business area and we will continue to develop and strengthen our product offering for our customers in this field."
