FibeRio Technology Corporation is launching its new generation of Forcespinning equipment designed to meet the production needs of fine fiber media producers and converters.

FibeRio’s core Forcespinning nanofiber technology is used for high output melt and solution nanofiber production. The benefits of nanofibers are now commercially viable for a greater variety of nonwovens media applications including air filtration, liquid filtration, apparel, acoustic insulation, energy, packaging and other markets. FibeRio claim that the new FX Series offers reliable, low cost deployment of a wide range of polymers in a fine fiber format.

Expandable architecture

The Fiber Engine FX was designed with a modular and expandable architecture and it is therefore configurable for 1.1 m (FX1100) or 2.2 m (FX2200) line widths. With a total output of up to 200 grams per minute and compatible with line speeds of up to 200 m per minute, the FX can be installed in-line with meltblown or other nonwoven processing equipment for the manufacture of composite or standalone media.

For a media designer, this means extracting maximum benefit from the high performance (nanofiber) layers where it matters, whether it’s improved hydrostatic head, air permeability, filtration efficiency, pressure drop, breathability, conductivity, or acoustic and thermal impedance.
