Industrial vacuum cleaners are designed to protect people and equipment from a variety of dangerous dust particles. Depending on the application, these dust particles can range in size and concentration, creating a hazardous environment for workers and machines alike. To ensure safety, many industrial vacuums come equipped with filtration systems capable of capturing particles as small as 0.5 microns or larger.
These filters often feature pleated designs which allow them to maximize the surface area available for trapping dust particles. The pleats increase airflows while still providing an efficient filter bed that is capable of trapping 99.9% of all airborne contaminants. Many industrial vacuums also contain HEPA (High Efficiency Particulate Air) filters which are specifically designed to trap even smaller particles and provide a higher level of protection against airborne contamination.
GESSNER offers a wide range of filter media products that are designed to effectively capture and contain dust particles of various sizes for industrial vacuum cleaner. These include our Delpore™ meltblown nonwoven, Alphastar™ tribo-electric nonwoven, and saturated cellulosed nonwoven. The combination of these materials enable GESSNER to provide highly efficient filter media with superior filtration efficiency and capture even the smallest particles. Additionally, the flame retardant cellulose prevents potential hazards such as dust fires, while providing increased strength and durability. With regular replacement of filter media, companies can ensure their machinery and personnel are protected from dust at any concentration level.
Vacuum filter media can be finished with either hydrophobic or hydrophilic coatings, depending on the specific application. Hydrophobic coatings are designed to repel water droplets and liquid particles, while hydrophilic coatings attract them. This unique feature means that GESSNER’s filter media can provide superior protection against both dry and wet particles. With hydrophobic filter media, the risk of dust fires is greatly reduced due to the coating's ability to prevent liquid accumulation; likewise, hydrophilic filter media are ideal for applications where liquid accumulation is beneficial, such as in water filtration systems. Furthermore, GESSNER also provides a wide range of finishes for their filter media in order to optimize their performance for any given application.
