Innovation in Filter Media

SCHERDEL GmbH – Hall 8 – B22

German company Scherdel GmbH has developed a process that makes it possible to combine maximum free filter area with minimum filter opening widths and high stability. As a result, filters with significantly larger flow rates than usual can be produced.

With the new SCHERDEL MicroSolex filter, finest porosity can be realized independent of filter wall thicknesses. Also maximized free filter areas can be combined with high rigidity and minimum slot widths.

In this way existing technical limits can be overcome and filters with high strength can be produced without the need of an additional support structure. Using this method the filters can be designed as filter cartridges as well as filter discs.
Wherever filters with higher flow rates and high stability promise better performance the new design can also be implemented or can also be used to optimize existing systems and equipment.

The SCHERDEL MicroSolex also has excellent backwashing properties. The high rigidity allows backwashing even at high pressures without causing damage to the filter.
Scherdel research and development departments are currently working on designing filters for a whole range of different applications from existing prototypes. Besides other applications backflush filter systems are a main focus for the usage of MicroSolex filters.

New in the Entec range is high-end Paars Mini Media® (Mini Purple)

Entex bv – Hall 8 – B39

Paars Mini Media®, for example, is extremely suitable for pressing between filter cloth and for placing in pleated filters. These pleated filter cloths with potassium permanganate KMnO4 impregnated media provide high quality air purification and, in addition to filter panels, can be used in several ways. High-quality pleated filter cloth is a perfect way to provide clean air in private- or workspaces. Available in sizes from 0.3-0.6mm to 2-3mm, particle and ball shaped.

Purple filter granules, impregnated with potassium permanganate KMnO4, which act as a catalyst in your odor filter. A chemical reaction takes place in which hydrogen sulfide (H2S) penetrates into the grain thanks to the very open pore structure, minimum of 290m2/gram.

Potassium permanganate is a very powerful oxidizer. The harmful gases penetrate the filter medium through the porous surface, after which an irreversible oxidation process takes place. Harmful gases such as hydrogen sulfide, sulfur dioxide, chlorine, nitric oxide, etc. will be removed. Harmless residual gases such as SO2 and H2O will remain.

Carbon membranes for the separation of H2 or CO2 from gas mixtures

Fraunhofer IKTS – Hall 7 – L36

Hydrogen is seen as a beacon of hope in the development of a CO2-free energy supply. Fraunhofer IKTS has developed a technology based on carbon membranes that can be used to efficiently separate hydrogen and natural gas.

The membrane technology thus makes it possible to conduct the two substances together through the natural gas network and to separate them from each other as needed at the destination. Compared to pressure swing adsorption or cryogenic separation processes, this variant is cost-effective and resistant to harsh ambient conditions and natural gas by-products such as hydrogen sulfide. The membranes can concentate 5 vol% hydrogen in the feed to significantly more than 90 vol% hydrogen in the permeate.

Due to their excellent stability even at high temperatures, the carbon membranes are also suitable for the separation of CO2 from industrial gases. During test runs at relevant CO2 emitters (steel, lime and dolomite works, biogas plants), CO2 concentrations of more than 97 % could be achieved. This makes it possible to further utilize the separated CO2 as a raw material for non-fossil fuels or chemicals, for example.

Europe-wide unique test and innovation platform for the treatment of industrial wastewater

Fraunhofer IKTS – Hall 7 – L36

Of all the economic sectors in Germany, industry has the greatest demand for water. This makes it even more important for them to have efficient technologies for cleaning and recycling water. Ideally, these should also enable the recovery of energy and valuable raw materials for reuse in production.

To test innovative water treatment technologies and forward-looking water utilization concepts in practice, Fraunhofer IKTS and partner institutes have set up an experimental technology and innovation platform on the site of the Bitterfeld-Wolfen Joint Sewage Treatment Plant. It is one of the largest and most modern wastewater treatment plants in central Germany, treating not just municipal wastewater but also the industrial wastewater from the nearly 300 companies in the Bitterfeld-Wolfen Chemical Park, one of the largest in Europe.

The platform comprises several test containers as well as test facilities in the form of interconnected modules, flexible to use, for the development, testing and transfer of new technologies. These technologies refer to water desalination and the recovery of process chemicals and raw materials, as well as water stemming from complex industrial wastewater of the Bitterfeld-Wolfen Chemical Park. The pilot-scale test plants include filtration plants equipped with ceramic membranes, molecular and bipolar electrodialysis systems for electrochemical separation and recovery, electrolysis plants for the electrochemical total oxidation of water constituents that are particularly difficult to break down, and for sulphate separation and hydrogen generation.

BIO-CEL® M+ module optimized for medium-sized and mobile wastewater treatment plants

MANN+HUMMEL GmbH – Hall 8 – C11

BIO-CEL® M+ is MANN+HUMMEL’s most versatile module optimized for medium-sized and mobile wastewater treatment plants. It features the high-performance and durable BIO-CEL® UV400T ultrafiltration membrane, specifically developed for use in MBR systems and preventing antibiotic-resistant bacteria from entering the environment.

One unit treats wastewater from up to 115 households daily producing around 75 m3 of filtrate, and can be expanded modularly if required, perfectly fitting into a high cube container. Thus, the construction of a mobile MBR plant does not require any custom-made filter tanks. Retrofitting is also possible.
Ultrafiltration has higher filter quality and better retention against (antibiotic-resistant) bacteria and viruses than microfiltration. Due to BIO-CEL® UV400T, solids and bacteria are efficiently removed from wastewater. For eliminating trace substances, activated carbon can be added directly to the membrane tank; a separate fourth and fifth treatment stage is then no longer necessary.

BIO-CEL® M+ can reduce the area of a plant by more than 60%, allowing the construction of extremely compact, decentralized wastewater treatment plants operating with low emissions.

atech Ceramics in Polypropylene (PP) housings

atech innovations gmbh – Hall 8 – D18

Since end of 2021 the major producer of polypropylene membranes has stopped his manufacturing for tubular PP membranes.
As a consequence of this termination, PP modules like “Microdyn® tubular modules” or “T-cut-PP” are no longer available, thus membrane system operators are facing a problem if it comes to membrane replacement.
atech innovations gmbh has developed a housing made of polypropylene with exactly the same dimension as the a.m. PP modules but equipped with their unique ceramic membranes in 1,5 µm length (the photo shows a module with 3 m length, for total of 14 membranes).
Just by adapting the individual connections (feed/retentate/permeate), the atech PP modules fit into the PP- membrane system without further modification.
The atech PP-housing does not have any metal parts (fully PP design) so it can be used for corrosive applications as well.
Key features of atech PP module with ceramic membranes:

• pore sizes available from 1,2 µm to 1 kD (including 0,2 µm)
• narrow pore size distribution
• channel diameter 4 mm (5,5 in preparation)
• filter surface (up to 18m²), can be adapted
• similar feed flow rates as PP membranes (no pump modification necessary)
• membranes can be exchanged separately without change of housing
• can be used for corrosive liquids (no metal parts in contact with liquid)
• high chemical resistance
• extremely high water permeability

Ion exchanger Blue.iox - For safe operation of the fuel cell

HENGST – Hall 7 – K13

Electric vehicles, which include fuel cell vehicles, must meet the standards for high-voltage components. To keep vehicles safe, a minimum insulation resistance of the electrically conductive components to the vehicle ground (earthing) must be maintained. One of the challenges of fuel cells is therefore the solubility of ionic components in the coolant circuit. The Blue.iox ion exchanger recently developed by Hengst keeps the electrical conductivity of the coolant to a minimum and thus rules out any short-circuit effects.

The Blue.iox ion exchanger ensures a rapid lowering of the initial ion concentration within the coolant circuit. It can be integrated in the main flow or in parallel connection with components of the coolant circuit. The ion exchanger is available in capacities up to 1500 meq and various designs for use in passenger and commercial vehicles, in agricultural and construction machinery, and for stationary applications as well.

The innovative design of the resin system in the Blue.iox filter cartridge ensures consistently high filtration performance throughout the entire service interval. All the materials used exhibit good aging behavior and were selected for their compatibility with the coolant.

In addition, the Hengst Blue.iox ion exchanger is designed to be easy to handle. A screw cap allows the filter cartridge to be changed cleanly using standard tools, while the integrated shut-off valves ensure that no coolant leaks out.

The electrified cabin air filter Blue.ion

HENGST – Hall 7 – K13

In one hour, the ventilation system in a car draws 300,000 liters of air into the interior of the vehicle – together with pollutants, allergens, and odors from the immediate environment. Fortunately, cabin air filters substantially reduce the pollution level even in the case of very fine particles therefore contributing to a healthy and hygienic climate in the vehicle. The design of cabin air filters involves the conflicting goals of combining a compact design with the lowest possible flow resistance as well as filtration of the finest particles. The new Blue.ion cabin air filter from Hengst can boast constantly high and also energy-efficient filtration performance, which is achieved by combining two technologies: ionization of particles in the air flow and polarization of the filter medium. An ionizer provided directly upstream of the filter ensures that the particles are electrically charged. This improves separation of the particles in the filter, which is likewise charged. Even despite the ionization, the charge decreases over the life of the filter, resulting in a performance drop with reduced particle separation. At this point, polarization has a complementary effect. The use of an electrostatic field permanently maintains the charge in the filter medium. Altogether, the combined system ensures consistently high separation throughout the entire filter life.

Roth Composite Machinery GmbH – Hall 8 – A21

Roth Composite Machinery will present an innovative, swivelling length cutting system for its knife pleating machines for the production of filters for the first time. These filters are used in a wide range of applications.

The new length cutting system enables an increase in production output, as the maximum width of the filter material is fed into the machine and the filters are cut through in individual widths lengthwise to the material web. The machine design developed by Roth Composite Machinery features the length cutter directly in front of the folding knives. “For safety and ergonomic reasons, we have designed the complete infeed table, including the cutter, to swivel. The operator can swivel the table by 90° in a position provided for this purpose, so that the cutter practically swings out of the machine. The swivel position is deliberately chosen at the centre of gravity of the infeed table so that the swivelling process can be carried out easily,” explains Winfried Schäfer, Senior Sales Manager at Roth Composite Machinery. The operator can make the necessary adjustments on the length cutter directly and without physical exertion.

For better and risk-free handling in the production process, Roth Composite Machinery has further developed the positioning of the cutting system in the machine.

Special tools for flow analyses (CFD) in filtration applications

DHCAE Tools GmbH – Hall 8 – C14

DHCAE Tools develops special tools for flow analyses (CFD) in filtration applications. By optimising a filter system through CFD analyses, the utilisation of the installed filter area is optimised, operating costs are reduced, and the operating life is increased. In addition, the system is optimised in advance to guarantee stable operation and to avoid high costs due to system failures or plant downtimes.

The simulation tools have now been extensively expanded in order to efficiently reproduce and specifically optimise the flow of geometrically complex multi-filter systems. The interactions that occur during filter loading due to a higher local resistance and the associated constant relocation of the continuous flow are taken into account in an iterative approach. In this way, a particularly accurate modelling of the filter loading is realised over the entire operating time until cleaning. In the model extension, different damage models for the filters were also integrated to evaluate not only the particle deposits, but additionally the impact of large and fast particles on the filter and the resulting risk of damage. Components at risk can now be identified, and optimisations of the filter system can be numerically verified before the actual construction.

Classification, Clarification, Concentration - Versatile, new process solutions by the use of metallic filter media in dynamic crossflow filtration

BOKELA GmbH – Hall 8 – A45

The use of metallic filter media in dynamic crossflow filtration with BoCross filters enables versatile and completely new process solutions for tasks such as classifying, clarifying liquids and concentrating solids.

For such tasks the use of metallic filter media offers solutions tailored to the product and objective when state-of-the-art technologies such as wedge wire screen, candle filters, backflush filters, vibration screens, centrifuges or membrane filters reach their limits. Innovative processes such as dynamic sieve filtration and dynamic precoat filtration can be realised. Dynamic sieve filtration allows to continuously sieve out disruptive coarse particles from highly concentrated or highly viscous suspensions with a sharp separation cut. Dynamic precoat filtration allows to completely separate solids and thus produce absolutely clear filtrates. Thereby, the ground layer is created by particles of the suspension – without addition of other substances. Also microfine suspensions can be concentrated when the use of microporous membranes (polymeric or ceramic) is not possible. The modular design of the BoCross filter – i.e. the series arrangement of the filter elements – is a great advantage in this regard. Adaptation to the different separation tasks is done by varying various parameters.

However, despite controlling these variables, a major hurdle in reliable, industrial membrane production using electrospinning, is defect generation. For the aforementioned applications, any significant defect in the membrane, has always created a challenge due to the stringent material performance requirements. We have taken our significant knowledge and experience with our existing free-surface electrospinning technology (LINEA line) and created a new generation of equipment (INFINITY line) technology which maintains the industrial, high-throughput, and scalable aspects of our existing equipment along with the industry leading ability to virtually eliminate significant membrane defects from these membranes.

Digital design and virtual switching of cartridges to increase filter performance – the new GeoDict software feature

MATH2MARKET GmbH – Hall 7 – M28

Computer-Aided-Design (CAD) is of keen interest to simulate flow and filtration on filters with cartridges. However, performing systematic simulations on different geometrical setups requires the generation of these structures as CAD individually and the import of each sample separately.

A new feature in the GeoDict software allows to generate a variety of cartridges with changing pleat count, pleat thickness, and number of porous layers, and digitally switch them inside the housing. Starting now, it is easy and quick to find the ideal configuration between filter area and pleat count for cartridges and their housing, regarding their local minimum pressure drop and many filtration relevant parameters.

This digital test of the performance of filter prototypes circumvents the need for expensive, trial-and-error manufacturing and testing phases, since only promising prototypes undergo measurements at the testbench. These systematic simulations with varying geometries or flow rates may be run simultaneously in cloud applications to further increase the productivity, fit customers requests, and decrease time-to-market.

TMCI Padovan Spa

TMCI Padovan presents an innovative process for recovering carbon dioxide produced during grapes fermentation for microalgae production, photosynthetic unicellular organisms

TMCI Padovan Spa – Hall 8 – C26

TMCI Padovan presents an innovative process for recovering carbon dioxide produced during grapes fermentation for microalgae production, photosynthetic unicellular organisms that need carbon dioxide to carry out their natural metabolism. Microalgae biomass is already widely used in various commercial sectors such as agri-food, cosmeceutical and nutraceutical sectors, energy and chemistry.

Fermentation produces CO2 which is first compressed and then connected to a photobioreactor, made with recyclable materials, so light combined to few other inorganic nutrients will stimulate the algal biomass to absorb CO2 and release oxygen into the atmosphere through chlorophyll photosynthesis.
Biomass is then concentrated with static (Biom Nitor) and dynamic crossflow filters (Biom Dynamos), reaching the final dry mass of 20-25% w/w.
Concentrated biomass can be used in several ways: fodders, cosmetics or natural fertilizers, it can be used also for mixing into soft drinks to increase the nutritional value but also to wine-based drinks, beer or soft drinks to modify the colours.

Furtherly dried biomass can be used as additive for food preparation (pasta, ice cream, pastry, supplements, etc.) but also in cosmetic preparations and any chemical industrial application (biofuels, chemical products, etc.) or high added value molecules (omega 3, antioxidants, natural pigments).
With an average winery of 2.000.000 liters of wine/year with the consequent production of about 176 tons of carbon dioxide, it is possible to accumulate almost 98 tons of algal biomass in 1 year.

The TMCI Padovan R&D facility and at the Department of Biology of the University of Padua (IT), patented also a specific strain of microalgae capable to produce an oil very similar as composition to palm oil, thus resulting its valid and convenient alternate.
This aspect definitely prevents undeniable benefits for environmental and human health.

Rice bran wax filter press with high pressure technology to achieve dry cakes with minimal effort

Hydro Press Industries – Hall 8 – A25

Hydro Press Industries will introduce a rice bran wax filter press with high pressure technology to achieve dry cakes with minimal effort. High pressure filter presses are recommended for the application which requires dry cakes. If the cake is a value-added product, then the retention of liquid from the cake can be extracted using high pressure filter press. Hydro Press offers High Pressure filter press series which has benefitted clients from various Industries for last 30 years.

Hydro Press has introduced the same concept in rice bran application with lot of R&D to provide an effective solution. High pressure technology replaces the traditional Hydraulic wax press machine. The wax which is obtained in the form of cake from first filtration has oil retention of 55 % approx in the cake solids. Traditionally, a vertical wax filter press is employed in recovering maximum oil from this cake by pressing at higher tonnage. Using traditional wax press the oil retention is reduced from 55 % to 35-40 %. But it is seemingly a laborious process. Using high pressure RBWF series filter press, the oil retention is reduced from 55 % to 27 % with less labour requirement.

The High-pressure filter press is coupled with high pressure pump feeding system. This involves feeding the raw material with higher operating pressure using progressive cavity pump which squeezes the wax and thereby achieving a dry wax cake with low moisture and maximum throughput.

Lenzing Filtration

New cake building filter solution CakeFil improves efficiency whilst reducing fabrication costs

Lenzing Filtration – Hall 7 – L12

Cake and precoat filtration system are already well known and used in a multitude of industries. Mostly they are semi-automatic and a change of filter media has to be done on a regular basis.

Lenzing Filtration has found a method to improve effectively the efficiency of its wet respective dry discharge technology in, at the same time, diminishing the fabrication costs. Furthermore, the often frequently required filter media change is not necessary anymore.

In January 2022, Lenzing Filtration filed a patent for a new candle design.
The target was, to develop a support structure that is inexpensive to fabricate and at the same time provides the lowest possible flow barrier allowing for a backwash flow as high as possible throughout the total candle length.

The main body of the candle is made from a continuous casted structure, closed at the lower end with an on-welded plug and at the upper end with a connector to the filtrate chamber.

During filtration, the filtrate flow is downwards via the outer flow channels and leaves the candles upwards via the central dip channel. This allows a complete emptying of the candle from liquid when flowed through by air.

During the backwash, the flow direction is reversed and air or gas is being brought to the very bottom of the candle. An essential factor for an efficient, differential pressure driven backwash.

Continuous, maintenance-free and long-lasting – this is the CakeFil effect.

RAMPF Polymer Solutions has developed high-performance polyurethane systems for casting and bonding filter elements. The cutting-edge materials exhibit outstanding conductivity and flowability and meet the directives of the European Union on explosion protection (ATEX).

The directive 2014/34/EU (ATEX) of the European Union regulates the market for explosion-proof elec-trical and mechanical devices, components, and protective systems. It is relevant for numerous indus-tries and applications, including the filter industry. Here, the static charge inside the filter during cleaning can lead to a spark that, in the worst case, could cause an explosion in the filter.

In order to prevent this, RAMPF Polymer Solutions has developed conductive casting compounds for use in potentially explosive applications. The polyurethane systems have an excellent conductivity of 0.03 MOhm/cm, whilst at the same time exhibiting a very low mixing viscosity and therefore very good flow behavior. As a result, users do not need any complex conveyor systems and potting applications can be easily processed.

The casting compounds are available in Shore hardness A 85 and D 80. Further benefits are high chemi-cal resistance and good machinability.

Cabin air filters with nanofibers

MANN+HUMMEL – Hall 8 – C11

The nanofiber filter media produced by MANN+HUMMEL consists of a carrier media and an extremely thin layer of ultra-fine polymer fibers. These ultrafine fibers and their large number ensure a higher separation efficiency of fine particles like PM2.5 and PM1, and also ultrafine particles, keeping at the same time a low air flow resistance.

A ePM1 classification of the nanofiber filter media was achieved according to ISO 16 890, which means that the filtration efficiency of PM1 particles can reach up to 95 %. Compared with traditional electret filter media, the nanofiber media shows a much lower reduction of filtration efficiency after ageing. This means a stable long term efficiency over the whole filter life time.

Furthermore the nanofiber media is highly resistant against extreme environmental conditions, as humidity and temperature fluctuations.

This technology can be combined with any further media like particle filter media, filter media with activated carbon (for the adsorption of gases and odors) or/and bio functional layer (for the additional inactivation of microorganisms). This enables varieties of customized solutions to meet the requirements of vehicle manufacturers.

Its advantages in analysis were tested for a year and both, the improved analysis accuracy and the time savings in the laboratory were tested and confirmed. It has already proven its suitability for use in the analysis of beverages. It combines a filter and sample holder, saving steps and increasing sample throughput. Once separated, particles are transferred directly to the analyzer, reducing the risk of sample loss or contamination. An optimized weave in the bottom allows high recovery rates due to a high separation efficiency of 5 µm.

The COVID-19 pandemic increases the focus on minimising the risk of infection, also indoors, via indoor

EMW filtertechnik GmbH – Hall 8 – C6

The COVID-19 pandemic increases the focus on minimising the risk of infection, also indoors, via indoor air quality.
Common filter solutions are not efficient enough to counter the risk of COVID‐19 infection. Viruses can be transmitted via particles which can be assigned to the size of a few hundreds of nanometers. Depending on the required air exchange rate, the HEPA filters must be designed in such a way that the physical filtration effects for particle separation can also be effective at higher volume flows. Also, it should be noted that the filter solutions for air purifiers must be designed with regard to efficient energy consumption and low noise pollution.
EMW filtertechnik offers manufacturers and users of air purifiers and HVAC systems a new range of HEPA filters in the filter classes H13 and H14 according to EN 1822 in order to minimise the risk of infection by viruses such as SARS‐CoV‐ 2. EMW® can also provide tailor‐made HEPA filter solutions which are optimally tailored to the specific requirements of air purifiers and HVAC systems.

FireTex fulfills railway fire protection demands

DELBAG GmbH – Hall 7 – K13

Air hygiene plays a pivotal role in rail cars, as passengers and staff are continuously exposed to indoor air for extensive periods of time. The guideline VDI 6032 – Room Air Hygiene in Vehicle Interiors – sets minimum requirements for air quality in railways. It requires the use of inert materials in order to minimize metabolization by microorganisms.
To this end, the implementation of effective fire protection requirements is a fundamental obligation on all European railway networks. EUROSPEC requires the certification of all construction materials in rail cars that are acknowledged according to the European fire safety regulation EN 45545-2. By now, air filters failed to fulfill these requirements and could only selectively be used to the full extent of the requirements.
At the FILTECH Show DELBAG GmbH debuts its FireTex air filter series, as the first filter manufacturer to produce a full range of filter designs. Their range include from bag filters K85 FireTex for the filters class ePM1, FireTex filter mats and FireTex Z-Line filter cells. DELBAG’s entire FireTex air filter range is certified according to the European fire safety regulation EN 45545-2. All DELBAG ePM1 – ePM10 air filters are, needless to mention, subject to the supervision of the EUROVENT certification scheme and therefore, while being tightly checked for filter efficiency, DELBAG GmbH also documents an energy efficiency class for its entire ePM1 to ePM10 range of air filters.

High-Performance Flame-Retardant Media

Consisting of a blend base carrier with flame retardant properties equipped with nano layer, the UXNANO HP FR handles extreme fine dust and fume applications such as metal welding, thermal spraying, laser, and plasma cutting.

Filtration Efficiency

UXNANO HP FR proves to be a superior media capturing the finest dust particles and reaching the filter class ePM1 85% in accordance with ISO16890. Due to surface filtration, the cartridges are getting extended longevity and enhanced pulse cleaning.

Media performance with and without nano coating

In contrast to the traditional filter medias, the nano layer will enhance the media’s filtration properties, capturing the dust on the surface of the media and remove it almost entirely with compressed air cleaning.

The UX NANO HP FR ensures:

  • Better cleanability – the nano layer won’t allow the dust to penetrate the media surface, leading to an easier and faster cleaning process.
  • Substantial operational savings – a better cleanability means also a lower pressure drop, increased air flow, therefore fewer cleaning cycles and reduced energy costs.
  • Longer filter lifetime – with less cleaning cycles, the filters will last longer, therefore the filters will be changed less often, and the maintenance costs will be lower.

IT for Engineering (it4e) GmbH – Hall 8 – C14

By simulation, filtration processes and filter media can be analyzed, designed and optimized. The more precise the simulation reproduces the real process, the more predictive and meaningful are the simulation results.

1½-Way CFD-DEM Coupling is a new feature of DNSlab which allows to simulate microscale filtration processes including filter cake restructuring, detachment and re-entrainment of deposited particles. The method combines a high modeling depth with a low demand of computation resources. The consideration of detachment and re-entrainment effects is necessary in particular to model solid-liquid-separation processes, where higher viscous forces cause an increased occurrence of these effects.

As an example, the illustration shows the simulated particle distribution in a microfiber nonwoven before (left) and after (right) backwashing, with a reduced particle load after backwashing caused by particle detachment.

Quick opening closure optimises downtimes

HETA Verfahrenstechnik GmbH – Hall 8 – B33

The ever-increasing cost pressure is forcing plant operators to optimise or, at best, prevent plant shutdowns. Instead of expensive quick-release fasteners, vessels have so far been equipped with standard bolt-nut connections. It costs time and money to open them, ties up maintenance capacities and can even lead to a plant shutdown.

HETA has been aware of this and therefore created an innovative quick opening closure. Only one vent valve needs to be opened to access without tools the filter elements to be exchanged. Conversely, quick closing of the vessel is obvious.
The new HETA innovative quick opening closure can be retrofitted at low cost to any existing vessel with standard welding neck flange. Separate or extraordinary tests for operation are not required as the closure itself is a separate approved component.

The advantages are obvious: service times are reduced significantly. The time-consuming opening of a vessel with a standard blind flange connection by loosening all bolts and screws is eliminated, as is the closing with the correct torque.

The HETA quick opening closure has already proven its economic efficiency in a standard production environment.

Automated device for changing pleating knives

Roth Composite Machinery GmbH – Hall 8 – A21

In the pleating machine industry ranges of pleat heights have been established in order to produce appropriate pleat heights from most varied materials. The two types of pleating knives being most frequently used are covering the ranges 5-50 mm and 10-100 mm.
Formerly machine operators had to remove protective guards and the bolts fixing the knives at the cross bars when having to change the range. Even for a machine width of up to 1000 mm it used to be quite difficult for one person to accomplish the change. For a working width of over 1000 mm it was mandatory to involve a second person. An additional potential problem was the challenge to assemble the knife perfectly parallel. Even experienced machine operators needed about 15 minutes to carry out the exchange.
Roth Composite Machinery has developed an automated device for changing the knives. The upper and lower cross bars are each equipped with two pleating knife ranges. The special drive techno logy of RCM machines makes it possible to swivel the knife crossbar by 180° and to change between the two pleat height ranges automatically. The whole procedure takes less than 30 seconds and can be performed during the production process (i. e. when having material in the machine) without any problems. As the knives do not have to be removed from the crossbars assembly faults will be prevented. Furthermore a referencing of the machine is not necessary.

Automatic backwash filter turns legionella in cooling tower circuits off

Lenzing Filtration – Hall 7 – L12

Since the first attested Legionella outbreak in the US in 1965, there have been numerous cases of legionellosis all over the world with an average lethality of 1,500 deaths per year. One of the preferred breeding grounds for legionella bacteria are open cooling tower circuits. Corroded surfaces, fouling in the heat exchanger or the presence of microorganisms like ameba boost the growth while at the same time the evaporative cooling towers release the legionella bacteria in form of aerosol to the surrounding environment.
Fine filtration is able to eliminate fouling, prevents corrosion or the building of microorganism, whereas conventional media filters offer even more breeding ground in their inside or on its surfaces. Our patented Lenzing OptiFil®, however, is the only system that offers an all-in package. It filters with a fine filtration of down to 5μm and even below, 5% to 10% of process water installed in a side stream and reduces evidently the number of colony-forming units.
As an example, we may state a chemical plant in Europe that is operating several open cooling towers throughout its site. Some are without side stream filtration; some operate with media filters; one tower has our Lenzing OptiFil® installed. Although all cooling towers are below the governmental limits (which are becoming more and more strict) for colony-forming units, it is only the operating OptiFil® circuit that is even below the detection limit.

Our filtration media are multifunctional and reliably remove a wide variety of odors and pollutants from air: Particles, VOC´s, basic gases like ammonia or amines and acid gases like H2S, SO2 and NO2.
Formaldehyde is contained as binder or preserving agent in many plastics, paints, cloths, floorings and furniture made of flake boards. Since 2015, it is classified as category 1B which means it can cause cancer in the nasopharyngeal zone when inhaled.
Therefore, we developed filtration media based on impregnated activated carbons for the enhanced removal of formaldehyde from indoor and cabin air. Within this filtration process, the formaldehyde molecule is bonded irreversibly to the impregnation substance. We developed pleatable media as well as impregnated foams or non-wovens for V-cells or air purification devices. We also offer the impregnation on an activated carbon honeycomb, which results in a filter medium having high capacity and excellent breakthrough behavior combined with a very low pressure drop and thus a low noise level in air purification devices

Where conventional filter cloths have reached their limits, MINIMESH® RPD HIFLO-S opens up new dimensions for filtration. Using new weaving technology developed by Haver & Boecker, a three-dimensional pore geometry is created that makes industrial filtration processes more efficient, faster and more economical than ever previously possible.
The open surface over an area is significantly increased. The medium‘s flow-through rate can be doubled when compared to conventional filter cloth having the same pore size. In addition, the flow conditions are optimised and turbulence around the filter cloth is effectively avoided.
The pore size within a batch can be calibrated as desired from 5 μm to 40 μm. The new filter cloth can be manufactured from standard diameter wires. This has a positive effect on cost. Moreover it is now possible to weave special materials such as Avesta, Hastelloy, Inconel or titanium in the small pore size range. Thus for the first time RPD HIFLO-S offers a corrosion and temperature resistant filter cloth with pore sizes below 40 μm. The depth structure of RPD HIFLO-S offers a high separation effect without rapid blinding. Dirt holding capacity and cleaning capability have proven to be excellent.

Fraunhofer Institute for Ceramic Technologies and Systems IKTS – Hall 7 – L36

Fraunhofer IKTS develops and improves materials and processes for hot gas filters and their applications, such as the dedusting of exhaust gases from the steel and lime industry. A further process development at IKTS focuses on the environmentally relevant topic of phosphorus recovery from the mono-combustion of sewage sludge:
By modifying the sewage sludge with special additives, the heavy metal load of the ash fractions-containing phosphate will be significantly reduced. The process is based on the targeted gene ra tion of volatile heavy metal compounds that pass into the gas phase at high temperatures and are separated from the combustion ash by hot gas filtration. The harsh conditions require the use of ceramic filters that are particularly resistant to high temperature as well as chemicals attacks. Realistic load situations can be simulated with special test benches in order to specifically improve the chemical and mechanical resistance as well as the filtration properties of the hot gas filters. In-situ modification makes it possible to reduce the specific energy consumption required for recovering valuable materials compared with processing the ash separately. By combining hot gas filtration with membrane-supported processes, it is also possible to extract CO2 from hot and dust-enriched exhaust gases to meet the emission regulations.

Antibacterial nanofiber HVAC filter media

HIFYBER – Hall 7 – K5

The proper filtration of circulating indoor air become more important because, today people spend more than 80% of their daily lives indoors and The HVAC systems are referred as the respiratory system of modern buildings. However, during HVAC operation, the microorganisms may obtain suitable environmental conditions such as temperature, moisture level and nutrient to grow and they can diffuse into the filter components in the form of bio-aerosols or accumulated dust and then spread into the indoors.
The emergence of the deadly virus Covid-19 points to the need to move the efficiency level of indoor ventilation systems to the next level. Bacteria or viruses do not move in the air on their own and are usually accumulated on dust, saliva or droplets. Airborne-sized particles were considered to be particles <5 μm in size and droplet-sized particles were considered to be particles >5 μm in size. Challenge controls are maintained at 1700 – 3000 colony-forming units with a mean particle size of 3.0 ± 0.3 μm at “Bacterial Filtration efficiency(BFE), EN 14683 Standard”. HIFYBER HVAC products at F7 level can hold more than 90% of 3 μm particles. It is also possible to increase the BFE to over 99% with HIFYBER HVAC products. SPP65-AB is an innovative product that combines nanofiber with antibacterial technology. In addition to its high pleatability, it has 4 times more air permeability at the F7 level than non-antibacterial and widely used glass fiber products. HIFYBER cleans the air with its nanotechnological products and also prevents the growth of microorganisms with its antibacterial filter media.

Eco-filters: Automatic production process / Flexible automatic loader of endcaps for eco-filters production

AUTEC Automation • Gusbi SpA – Hall 8 – B20

The integration with AUTEC and GUSBI let to automate and have the production process under control from the loading of the paper to the unloading of finished products. The load of the media on the rotary table is automatically performed through the use of an anthropomorphic robot: the concentricity and the repeatability of the coupling of the paper with the endcap is ensured. The vertical press of the paper with the endcap is independent for each side of the filter. The load cells installed on the press allow to check each filter pressed; even the heating of the endcaps is controlled station by station setting the percentage of power for each single IR lamp and setting the height of the lamps. The load of the endcaps on the rotary table can be done automatically, with different solutions for loading the rotary table, with different level of automation and production autonomy. At the end of the production process the dimensional check is carried out automatically: a dimensional non-conformity is detected and the not compliance product is expelled from the unloading conveyor.

A new space-saving and flexible solution to load endcaps in the Gusbi table for the eco-oil filters production. A system that singularize and orientate the parts using our experience of drop-down conveyors joined with vibration system and vision camera. Easy to set up for model changes and new models.
