Sandler AG will showcase a wide range of its synthetic filter media at the upcoming Filtech 2018 trade show, which will focus specifically on indoor air quality and new international standards and will take place from 13-15 March.

Efficient pocket filter media and pleatable nonwovens for heating, ventilation and air-conditioning achieve high efficiency throughout their entire operating lives. Nonwovens for cabin air and engine air filters help improve the indoor air quality in our vehicles. Fuel filter media protect the engine and contribute to efficient combustion. Synthetic vacuum cleaner bags reliably trap dirt particles and dust and foster a higher suction power.

The new international testing standard ISO 16890 is changing the filtration market and product development regarding both filtration performance and energy efficiency. With its filter media solutions, Sandler says it addresses these priorities: With a low pressure drop the company’s products help reduce energy consumption during the operation of the filtration plant.

Progressively structured pocket filter media contain fine fibres of <1 µm and attain high efficiency, as well as high dust holding capacity. The latest Sandler product line enAIRsave is said to combine great filtration performance with energy efficiency and offer ideal products for all efficiency ranges according to ISO 16890. As part of the accompanying conference, a lecture by Sandler will focus on the advantages of these new pocket filter media with regard to the provisions of ISO 16890.

Sandler nonwovens are also resistant to temperature and moisture – durable synthetic media featuring optimum performance throughout the filter’s operating life. Pleatable Sandler filtration nonwovens are also easily processable in all common pleating processes. Their fibre structure supports accurate pleating; the utilised polymers render the pleats stable and resistant to mechanical influences, the company reports.

A new booth design highlights the aspects affecting our well-being in public spaces and informs visitors on the versatile areas of application for Sandler filter media. Additionally, the booth itself demonstrates how other nonwovens for technical applications help create a pleasant atmosphere: Acoustically efficient nonwoven panels, applied for instance in the construction industry, form the walls of the booth and will provide optimum conversational acoustics.
