Fully automatic membrane filter presses
AQUACHEM GmbH Separationstechnik – Hall 8 – E82
The fully automatic AF-series from AQUACHEM is a technical evolution of conventional chamber filter presses. Due to the degree of automation required today, a lack of personnel and the urge to increase efficiency in daily business, the previous filter technology is often no longer up-to-date.
Our fully automatic filter press is a mature and reliable system that has already proven itself many times under the toughest conditions. The press continuously produces and empties filter cakes safely without the presence of an operator. The leakage of the suspension during the filter cycle is also a thing of the past.
In addition to the significantly reduced operating costs, the investment is usually only slightly higher than with a conventional chamber or membrane filter press. Due to the higher performance per available square meter of filter area, a smaller automatic filter press can be used.
You do not know whether your suspension is suitable for filtration with our AF filter press? Let’s find out together in our laboratory! We are happy to support you.
A high machine availability, low maintenance and reduced disposal fees due to the higher dry matter content of the filter cake mark only a few of the many advantages of our AF-series.
No leakage, no staff – maximum flexibility. Convince yourself and contact us!Request more information

Effects of design in single and multi-layered woven wire mesh combinations
Haver & Boecker OHG – Hall 8 – C13
Thinking things different and looking beyond standard lead to innovative design considerations in woven wire mesh combinations. In cooperation with the Institute of Mechanical Process Engineering in Stuttgart (IMVT) Haver & Boecker has investigated and evaluated different offline measurement techniques and particle systems and their influence on the result of the load-dependent fractional separation efficiency (FAG) and the dirt hold capacity when using woven wire mesh in solid-liquid separation. By means of a specifically selected gradient structure and layer orientation, the load-dependent fractional separation efficiency as well as the dirt holding capacity can be favorably influenced. This in turn has positive effects on the service life and efficiency of multi-layered metal wire mesh combinations in sintered and not sintered condition. Blocking tendency is significantly reduced. The throughput characteristics are optimized.Benefits for use in filter components:
- Reduction of blocking tendency and pressure loss.
- Improved separation efficiency and dirt hold capacity.
- Optimized throughput characteristics.
Conductive Casting Compounds for the Filter Industry
RAMPF Polymer Solutions GmbH & Co. KG – Hall 8 – E29
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.Request more information

Microplastic-free production with Wasser 3.0: Saving money through environmental protection
Wasser 3.0 gGmbH – Hall 8 – C64
Industries are increasingly confronted with their handling of various pollutants in their process waters. Challenges range from high costs through large amounts of chemicals and waste disposal, millions of liters of contaminated water, high energy demands, and an unclear situation regarding microplastics.
Greentech R&D think tank Wasser 3.0 gGmbH now offers a holistic solution to detect | remove | reuse microplastics – and micropollutants – from waters. Technological innovations for fast and cost-effective microplastics detection and filter-free removal are embedded into a circular economy and Zero Waste strategy. The clou: An agglomeration-fixation through which microplastics and micropollutants clump together, float to the surface and are skimmed off; within minutes. A standardized detection of microplastics and a continuous process control determining removal efficiencies and conserving resources as well as reuse of removal products becomes possible.
Reproducible 95 % removal efficiency for microplastics, 90 % reuse of process chemicals, 100 % reuse of waste and process water, and 50 % reduction of energy demand lead to significant cost reductions and a microplastic-free production.
The electrified cabin air filter
Hengst SE – Hall 7 – K13
Cabin air filter with FFP-2 level filtration – This is made possible by the newly developed cabin air filter from Hengst with an upstream ionizer. This reliably protects passengers against viruses and fine particles. In addition, polarization of the filter ensures consistent efficiency throughout the life of the filter. The system also allows retrofitting in existing installation spaces.
This means there is an ionizer upstream of the cabin air filter. The negatively charged gas molecules charge the contained particles. Some of these particles in turn form agglomerates. Both single, charged particles and agglomerates of multiple particles substantially improve filter efficiency. The ionizer developed by Hengst achieves uniform charging in a very compact space.
Polarization on the other hand provides constant filtering performance throughout the entire life of the filter. Cabin air filters normally contain so-called electret media. These filter media have fibers with a high electric charge. Filtration of particles is achieved primarily via electrostatic attraction. The electret effect generally diminishes substantially over time, which also affects filter performance. The electrified cabin air filter counters this effect. Integrated polarization conserves the charge in the filter medium. The combined effects of ionization and polarization therefore result in high long-term particle filtering with low power consumption of 2.5 – 10 watts.Request more information

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.Request more information
Change your strainer in few seconds instead hours
ONIS – Hall 8 – B35
Shutdown time to separate pipe connections in order to replace filters can adversely impact a plant’s value process and create unnecessary non-productive time (NPT). To eliminate this type of NPT a plant will often implement redundant process equipment to eliminate the need to stop production during this maintenance. However, these types of redundant solutions un-necessarily increase capex requirements.
The Quick Filter Changer is equipped with a redundant strainer and includes technology to efficiently switch the strainers in process piping systems. Time to replace a filter with a new one can be reduced by more than 90% compared to conventional methods. These time savings are enabled by a simplified operational sequence that doesn’t require separating the piping connection.
This quick action clamping mechanism is self-locking and resistant to overpressure and vibration. Advanced sealing technology is also used with the clamping to maintain the connection integrity in extreme pressure, temperature, and process conditions. Once a new filter strainer is moved to be inline of the process piping, process conditions can be resumed while personnel remove the old strainer that is offline of the piping system.Request more information
Meshes for high-temperature filters designed to operate under the most demanding conditions and environments
INTERMAS – Hall 8 – D11
Today, an increasing number of industrial applications require materials resistant to high-temperatures.
Most common air filters do not need to bear temperatures beyond 90ºC. Intermas has developed a wide range of meshes that are used as pleating support of filter medias. Our extruded plastic netting made in Polyethylene (PE) or Polypropylene (PP) is commonly used to reinforce the pleat of filter medias for HVAC filters, dust collectors, cabin airs and intake filters.
When it comes to liquid filtration, filter components are usually exposed to a much higher temperature range whilst in contact with aggressive chemicals. Intermas extruded netting made in Polyamide 6 (Nylon) and Polybutylene Terephthalate (PBT) is designed to operate under the most demanding conditions and environments.
As opposed to netting made in Polyethylene (PE) or Polypropylene (PP), netting in PA6 and PBT is today a very competitive solution for high-temperature filters and represents the alternative to steel and fiberglass meshes.
Intermas also has a specific family range of meshes used as feed spacers for Reverse Osmosis filters. They are made in PP and are used as membrane separators in RO modules.Request more information
Innovative microfilter crucible for the analysis of microplastics
GKD – Gebr. Kufferath AG – Hall 8 – B19
Methods for the analysis of microplastics are becoming increasingly important. TED-GC/MS is a method for high accuracies. In order to take into account an important step in the analysis of microplastics, GKD has teamed up with the Federal Environment Agency and the Federal Institute for Materials Research to develop an innovative microfilter crucible for sample preparation. This microfilter crucible, which was developed as part of the RUSEKU research project in the BMBF’s “Plastics in the Environment” research program, is made of stainless steel and is temperature-resistant up to 600 °C. 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.Request more information

Tailor-Made Adsorption Materials
Technische Universität Dresden - Materials Center Institut für Anorganische Chemie – Hall 8 – C41
Our business model is to offer a portfolio of standard adsorbents (MOFs, carbons, and silica-based materials), syntheses of materials according to customer requirements, shaping materials to agglomerates in a wide range of shapes and sizes and other services according the characterization of porous materials. Our main focus is to close the gap between MOF science and possible applications in industrial scale. Customers ask us for MOF compounds useful for specific problems, e.g. the filtration of toxic gas mixtures containing ammonia, hydrogen disulfide and/or volatile organic compounds, for gas separation or CO2 capture. We try to find the best solution for this problem by means of economics.
Most MOF syntheses from literature are designed as single crystal synthesis with low space-time yields In contrast to this low scale synthesis, the materials center deals with alternative synthesis methods.
The yield of one synthesis is often thousand fold and higher than the largest yield known from literature.
For almost every application, dust-free pellets or beads are needed. It must be possible to immobilize the adsorbent on a rack without significant loss of material even at high flow rates or other mechanical stress. Our group has established a portfolio of different binders useful for the shaping of MOFs, too.
Our MOF granules show a crush strength of 10 N or higher and only, a small loss of porosity compared with the initial powder.Request more information

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.
Filter cartridges with nanofiber media - ePM1 85% efficiency and 72% longer lifetime
Nordic Air Filtration A/S – Hall 7 – K13
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.
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.

Filtration and separation for the fuel cell - Safe operation & optimum efficiency
Hengst SE – Hall 7 – K13
The fuel cell is a key technology for attaining sustainable power generation. Hengst Filtration develops filtration solutions such as the cathode filter, ion exchanger and water separator for reliable and optimally efficient operation of fuel cell systems.
The cathode filter designed by Hengst, for example, ensures that the intake air is purified from particles and catalyst toxins that are harmful to the fuel cell, such as sulfur dioxide (SO2), nitrogen oxides (NOX), ammonia (NH3) and volatile organic compounds (VOC). Treatment of the coolant to achieve a low level of electrical conductivity is performed by an ion exchanger. Hengst has developed an effective ion exchanger to keep electric conductivity in the coolant as low as possible and, thus, protect the fuel cell from any electrical short circuits. Liquid water in the hydrogen and air intake has a negative impact on the performance of the fuel cell. By ensuring that the liquid water is separated effectively, the separators designed by Hengst preserve and increase the performance of the fuel cell.Request more information

Innovative two stage water filter
Hengst SE – Hall 7 – K13
“Water is life!” this simple sentence shows how important clean drinking water becomes, even in industrial countries. Due to this, the company Grünbeck, as a leader in water treatment solution and the company Hengst, known for leading filtration solutions in industrial and automotive applications, joined to start a cooperation to develop an innovative filter solution for hygienic water treatment applications.
The result of this development is a mobile filtration solution for leisure vehicles, which can adapt to nearly all drinking water tanks to provide hygienic and pure water.
The two-stage filter system – with a minimum amount of auxiliary materials – is reliable for nearly all drinking water standards.
The filter element consists of two innovative filter stages with active carbon as, for example, an agent for the removal of chlorine and an additional material for the removing of pathogens and colloids.
Due to the use of the Hengst Energetic concept and ultra-sonic welding processes it is possible to produce a filter element that only consist of the filter materials and plastic components (end cap and inner tube), without any kind of glue or further materials.
1½-Way CFD-DEM Coupling with DNSlab: 3D Simulation of Microscale Fuid-Particle Processes including Filter Cake Restructuring, Detachment and Re-Entrainment of Deposited Particles
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.Request more information

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.
© – a multivariable, antimicrobial material – completely without 'nano'
abcr GmbH – Hall 8 – A24
More and more microorganisms are coming into focus because of their health-endangering properties. The formation of multi-resistant germs is one of the big challenges for new, sensible solutions.
To equip all surfaces antimicrobial – even in water-bearing systems – abcr eco_antimic* from abcr GmbH is a proven alternative.
The material provides an enormously wide range of applications as a surface-active substance in respect of incubation time, effectiveness and duration of action. The substance can be used as a coating or as part of the matrix and then shows practically no wear and tear and a long-lasting effect over several years. Challenging applications can be found on all contact surfaces touched by people, e.g. in hospitals, sanitary facilities, on medical equipment. A further field of applica tion is the reduction of biofilms in water-bearing systems.
abcr eco_antimic* has already been successfully used in various applications. A large number of patents and the biocide approval exist. How the material works and what results have been achieved can be found in our presentation and at booth A24.
Test of respiratory masks – Better than the standard
Palas GmbH – Hall 8 – A11
The Palas® respiratory mask filter test rig PMFT 1000 allows a reliable control of the filter performance and enhances quality assurance. The current spread of the new corona virus CoVid-19 is leading to a massive increase in demand for respiratory masks worldwide. Manufacturers of filter media and respiratory masks are increasing their production capacities to the maximum. However, reliable protection is only offered by masks that have undergone special tests during production. To support manufacturers, Palas has introduced the newly developed PMFT 1000 respiratory mask filter test rig, which enables both quality assurance in production and product improvement in the development department.
A special advantage of the PMFT 1000 from Palas compared to other filter test rigs is that additionally to the penetration by mass, the exact representation of the separation per size class of the particles can be detected. Especially regarding the effectiveness of the breathing masks for the corona virus (size: approx. 120 nm – 160 nm), such an exact measurement of the particle size distribution is essential. The fractional efficiency is tested, e.g. the efficiency in the whole size range of 100 nm up to 5 μm (size range spectrometer 100 nm up to 40 μm*).
PMFT 1000 is future proof: It works with any kind of aerosol, it can be used for all kinds of face masks and is also easy to handle.

Solutions for effective formaldehyde removal from indoor air
helsatech - MANN+HUMMEL Molecular Filtration – Hall 8 – B10
The company helsatech is a specialist in designing and producing air filtration media based on activated carbon as well as other adsorbents. 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

3D high performance metal filter cloth
Haver & Boecker OHG – Hall 8 – C13
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.
Ceramic hot gas filters for the recovery of reusable materials in industry and agriculture
Fraunhofer Institute for Ceramic Technologies and Systems IKTS – Hall 7 – L2
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.
Filtration modelling tools based on computational fluid dynamics (CFD)
DHCAE Tools GmbH – Hall 8 – C48
CFD simulations provide a deeper understanding of the process and allow it to be optimised without the need to build a prototype first. However, the simulation of filtration applications requires special tools in the field of particle modelling, deposition and resistance build-up. DHCAE Tools has created a special tool for such filtration simulations with the capability to model a wide range of filtration processes such as surface and depth filtration on the device scale. This simulation tool has been considerably extended so that the specific requirements in the filtration process can be reproduced individually and precisely to the objective: A detailed modelling of penetration depths in a pleated filter is just as possible with the tool as a filter system with thousands of bag filters can be evaluated with regard to the uniformity of the filter loading. We would be pleased to discuss your filtration application at our booth at FILTECH and demonstrate the modelling options with our simulation tools.Request more information
Continuous thickening, washing & clarification of challenging suspensions
BOKELA GmbH – Hall 8 – B52
Dynamic crossflow filtration with the BoCross Dynamic filter is a unique process for microfiltration and ultrafiltration of microfine to nanoscale suspensions. In many production processes fine and difficult to separate particles have to be filtered and demanding process results have to be achieved. Be it a high final concentration or high yield, the production of purest solids through intensive washing (diafiltration) or the generation of a pure, particle-free liquid – the dynamic cross-flow filtration with the BoCross filter technology from BOKELA enables new and future-oriented solutions for such tasks.
The dynamic shear gap principle ensures almost ideal physical conditions for the separation process. Under the influence of the shear forces, the concentrate still remains flowable even with high thickening. Therefore, highly viscous and highly concentrated suspensions can still be processed. Compared with conventional crossflow filtration, five to six times higher concentrations are achieved with the BoCross Dynamic filter. The BoCross Dynamic Filter proves its efficiency in the thickening, washing and clarification in different areas of applications for a wide variety of products e.g. white and color pigments, metall powders, APIs, cosmetic ingredients, fungicides and many more.

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.
