Teijin is developing high-performance papers and filters in new markets, including for improved productivity and safety in the beverage field. Teijin’s booth at Drink Japan 2016 will showcase high-performance papers and filters made with NANOFRONT, an ultra-fine nonwoven nanofibre boasting a diameter of just 700 nm.

Liquid Cartridge filter

The pleating filter for beverage production uses a new extra-thin material that features minute, uniformly pores. This filter is said to achieve high-rate filtering, minimal pressure loss and high flow rates, as well as long-life and energy-saving performance.

Bag filter

This bag filter for powder collection process efficiently scavenges dust powder and dust off by minimizing pressure loss and clogging, resulting in energy-saving, long-life performance, the company reports.

Air filter

Teijin’s air filter, made with a combination of NANOFRONT and other high-function fibres, is expected to be used in the clean rooms of beverage plants. High-rate scavenging is achieved using minute-size pores and pressure loss is minimized due to the filter’s high porosity. According to the manufacturer, the filter also helps to save on energy consumption.

Future plans

Going forward, Teijin will continue to incorporate high-function fibres in advanced papers and filters for specialized applications in fields including safety, infrastructure, energy and mobility.

High-function composite materials are positioned to play one of the key roles in Teijin’s new-growth initiatives that focus on maximizing customer value.
