Alkegen launches high efficiency filtration media at WFC13

Alkegen is launching three new high efficiency filtration (HEF) products for air, liquid and molecular applications during the World Filtration Congress in San Diego, California.

These are the first new filtration products launched under the Alkegen brand name since last year’s merger of Lydall and Unifrax.

Alkegen’s new TriboStatiX air filtration media is a MERV 13 high performance pleat media. The media provides lower initial resistance, reducing the amount of energy required in the HVAC unit and lowering overall operating costs.

“With TriboStatiX, customers can expect high performance with longer service life,” said John Albert, Global Growth Leader at Alkegen. “This means changing out filters less frequently for a more sustainable solution.”

LyPore MB, Alkegen’s new line of meltblown liquid filtration media is designed to meet the most critical application requirements, while providing high filtration efficiency, low-pressure drop and excellent dirt holding capacity. It is available in Polypropylene and PBT, single layer or composite and is calendered to meet the most complex liquid filtration challenges.

“In addition to our expanded portfolio of available grades, our talented research and development team routinely customizes LyPore MB to meet specific customer needs,” said Aaron Frost, Growth Leader at Alkegen.

Alkegen’s new LydAir GP molecular filtration media offer exceptional uniformity and layering of a wide range of functional adsorbents including activated carbon and ion exchange resins. Additionally particulate filter media can be laminated in line providing a combination media for both molecular and particle filtration.

“This trio of HEF media – one for air, one for liquid, one for molecular applications – represents the first wave of advanced materials developed and released under our new Alkegen filtration product development team. These launches combine Lydall’s well-known filtration and manufacturing expertise with Unifrax’s proven, rapid innovation capabilities,” said Paul Vallis, president of Alkegen’s Filtration & Catalysis Group. “This is the first of many innovations we expect to deliver as our portfolio evolves to meet the continuous demand for ever-higher efficiency and reduced energy consumption.”
