We have been selling into the filtration sector for water removal application for a number of years. A company operating in this sector required a superabsorbent fabric for the removal of free water down to very low ppm levels from oils. The product in which the fabric – or filter media as it is referred to in the industry – is now commercially available.
Our fabric is extremely suitable for these types of applications due to its love of water. It rapidly absorbs any water that is passed through but does not hold onto oils or fuels. It is this capture and retention that was required by the customer.
In this instance, the fabric used is Airlaid nonwoven. However, needelfelt fabrics are also suitable for use within such applications.
