Conference Presentation/s

The evolution of Disruptor® charged fiber technology

F. Cousart*, D. Russell, Ahlstrom, USA; C. Läck, Ahlstrom, Sweden; J. Kaukopaasi, Ahlstrom, Finland, Christophe Theron, Ahlstrom, France

Conference Session: L01 - Depth Filtration and Adsorption I - 2023-02-14 - 13:00

Disruptor® technology was first introduced to the industry over a decade ago. The technology was a significant innovation, but there was room for improvement. It removed virus, bacteria, and cysts, but virus removal was only on the order of 2 log. The media required special considerations to pleat and make into filters. By definition, the grade contained large amounts of charged material and unfibrillated fibers, leaving very little room to add fibrillated fibers for strength. The technology was impressive, but defined and limited. It appeared there would only ever be one product.

The technology has evolved considerably. The internal strength of the product was increased by use of specialized fibers and binders. Overall strength was improved through lamination. Virus was identified as one of the most accurate measures of performance. Virus removal was improved from 2 log to greater than 4 log.

Along with improvements in basic performance came improvements in test methods. The increased removal of virus allowed use of larger plated volumes, which in turn increased the accuracy of the initial virus removal test. Virus and bacteria capacity curves were also established and surrogates for virus and bacterial made initial screening possible. Erythrosine, fluorescein, humic acid, tannic acid, and ATP have all been used to measure performance. Some of these tests are colorimetric tests which eliminate the need for biological plating. Removal of other organics, such as TEP and endotoxins were demonstrated. Removal of specific pathogens, like legionella, was verified. A method of passing P231 with multi-layer products was demonstrated. Studies expanded from removal of organics to inorganics like iron and lead.

Given the improvements in performance and strength, it became possible to incorporate functional additives into Disruptor® products. The first innovations included removal of chlorine and rapidly expanded to include tailored solutions for specific markets. More recently, promising work has been conducted with removal of lead.

Gravity flow is a key segment of today’s water market. The improvements in removal efficiency have allowed the pore size of the base sheet to be increased. Improved lamination techniques have also increased flow. Today’s gravity flow products have twice the flow of traditional products designed for pressure applications.

Innovation continues. Current partnerships will soon result in the launch of higher performing products with more specialized capabilities...

Enhancing filtration performances of wet-laid synthetic nonwovens thanks to improved structures and digital product development

C. Prost, E. Ruiz, A. Corradi, O. Soikkeli, Ahlstrom-Munksjö, France/Italy/Finland; P. Eichheimer, M. Azimian, Math2Market GmbH, Germany

Conference Session: L14 - Oil/Water- and Oil/Solid-Separation - 2023-02-16 - 14:45

Trinitex® is an A-M proprietary and patented wet-laid nonwoven technology leading to unique three-layer filtration media. This technology allows indeed the simultaneous formation of three layers in one step with the possibility to use different types of synthetic and natural fibers as well as granular activated carbon and microglass fibers. Since early 2000’s, Trinitex® has been chosen as a Premium Air and Liquid Filtration solution.

Trinitex®, from A-B-A structure to A-B-C structure

Traditionally, the structure of Trinitex® nonwovens is an A-B-A type of structure with hour-glass gradient where A layers typically have same fiber mix whereas B layer typically has a different fiber mix. Ahlstrom now has the enhanced capability to commercially supply filtration media with A-B-C structure where all layers A, B and C have different fiber mix as well as different basis weights. This enhanced capability opened up new horizons towards more flexible Trinitex® product designs going together with increased dust holding capacities and longer filter lifetime...
