Sub-Micron Filtration Using Technostat®
Sub-Micron filtration in both air and liquid applications is considered a system that can effectively filter particulates that are under 1 micron in size. 1 micron or micrometer is 0.001 millimeters (0.00003937 inches) and cannot be seen by the human eye which can discern only particles which are 25 microns or higher. Most harmful airborne and suspended particles are under one micron in size, so the ability for a filtration system to effectively filter out these sizes is crucial.
Superior Felt & Filtration offers a premier product, Technostat®, which is extremely efficient at filtering sub-micron particles. Technostat® is a needle punch nonwoven textile that is electrostatically charged. Technostat® is an alternative option for products that use permanently charged fibers. The neutral charge gained during manufacturing attracts both negative and positive particulates from the air stream, which results in high capture rates of sub-micron contaminants. Technostat® is a comparable replacement for Corona Charged Media that is often featured in popular household filtration products. Technostat® is a great alternative option for a Media type G replacement.
In addition to our standard Technostat® product line, we offer a new generation charged media, Technostat® Plus. Among high-efficiency air filtration media, Technostat® Plus leads the way. It achieves aerosol penetration levels as much as 40% lower than standard Technostat® grades at the same basis weight.
We also offer a range of mechanical nonwoven materials that can be pleated to obtain HEPA level filtration.
