Filtration leader launches American-made range of microfiltration products
An international leader in filtration and separation has unveiled its new made-in-America microfiltration product range, opening up fresh market opportunities to a wider range of customers.
Porvair Filtration Group, who manufacture air, liquid, and gas filtration products for industrial and commercial markets, are now providing a nominal range of filter cartridges and housings, suitable for industries including chemical processing, process water and food and beverage.
MicroKey™ and PolyKey™ filters are suitable for a broad range of industries and with a polymeric filter housing range to complement; they provide a complete solution for many industrial filtration requirements.
The PolyKey™ range of filters is manufactured in standard 2.5-2.75” diameter and GIANT 4.5” sizes, from melt-blown and spun-bonded pleated polypropylene media. Its high quality pleated polypropylene construction meets FDA CFR Title 21 criteria for the processing of liquid foods, and allows for usage with many aggressive chemicals.
MicroKey™ filters are manufactured from microfiberglass layered with spun-bonded polyester. The high-efficiency pleated construction allows for greater surface area in a compact design. The excellent capacity of the cartridge maximizes time between filter changes, therefore lowering operational costs.
Both filters feature highly efficient media with excellent particulate removals as well as low-pressure drops making them suitable for challenging filtration environments.
Available alongside these filters are a range of plastic filter housings, which are suitable for new applications as well as retrofit into existing applications. These filter housings can provide a cost-effective alternative to Teflon™ or fluoropolymer housings, and include a wide-diameter GIANT HOUSINGS® option that is not widely available in the filtration industry.
Trevor Waghorn, VP of Sales and Marketing stated:
“We are delighted to be able to offer our customers a nominal range of filters and housings to complement our existing range of absolute polymeric filters”
“This new range will further expand our microfiltration customer market and allow us to provide filtration solutions to new industries such as commercial, residential water treatment and high purity water for pharmaceutical, food & beverage and electronics applications.”
