Super Absorbent Filtration Solutions at Filtech

TAL will join over 350 global exhibitors as it demonstrates how its technology can be used to effectively remove water from aviation fuel, automotive fuel and hydraulic oil.  TAL will exhibit on stand A28, Hall 11.1 and will be displaying its SAFTM fibre and converted nonwoven fabric technologies, while also having its development specialist’s on-hand to provide expertise and advice if required.

A significant reason for the majority of oil and fuel system failures is the presence of high water levels in dissolved, dispersed and free water. SAFTM based filter media fabrics can remove both dispersed and free water to very low ppm levels at industry leading rates. This results in reduced fuel and oil degradation, and provides the required filter quality for efficient machine operation.

“SAFTM is a key component for a wide range of enhanced nonwoven filter media fabrics that are designed for the removal of water and particulates from aviation fuel, automotive diesel and a wide range of oils,” explains Applications Development Manager Dr Mark Paterson. “Such fabrics help reduce problems associated with water contamination in such situations. Its versatility gives rise to cost savings over traditional cellulosic-based absorption media, while offering full compliance potential to stringent international filtration standards.

“We had a great response when we exhibited in 2013, hence the return this year. It will provide the perfect platform to demonstrate the capabilities of our technology within this sector and meet with many large filtration companies under the one roof.”
