Foam Filter Materials and Filter Technologies
Filtration is a process used to separate solids from fluids or fluids in suspension (air). Filter technologies are used every day in countless ways and for numerous purposes.
Filter Technology Applications
Foam filter materials and filter technologies are used in air filters for small engines, air conditioners, data processing equipment, electronic air cleaners, humidifiers, furnaces, condenser coils, refrigerators, cold drink dispensers, and other appliances where moving air is required either by force or convection.
Functions of Filtration Foam
- Removing dust and contaminating particles from air, gases, and liquids (filtration)
- Collecting vaporized oils from industrial equipment (de-misting)
- Acting as an evaporative surface (humidification)
- Cleaning up oil spills (oil/water separation)
Foam Filter Materials
Reticulated foam is an ideal filtration foam. Its dense, porous structure allows air and fluids to pass through and traps particles.
