Located in Hall 8, Booth E27, Donaldson specialists will be available to discuss the company’s different membrane options for a variety of applications including industrial filtration, fuel cell, life sciences and process filtration.

“Donaldson’s Tetratex Membrane Filter Media solutions are the outcome of over 30 years of experience and proven performance,” says Koen Gatz, Donaldson’s director of Membranes EMEA. “At FILTECH, we’re looking forward to meeting current and prospective partners and helping them to find the ideal solution for their application based on their operation, processes and unique product requirements – whether that be in the chemicals, power generation, metals, minerals, food & beverage, pharmaceuticals, or any other segment.”

Tetratex is a proprietary expanded microporous PTFE (Polytetrafluoroethylene) membrane, manufactured solely by Donaldson Membranes. It is laminated to a variety of base substrates to provide a complete range of media including woven and felted textile media for conversion into all types of filter bag, as well as pleatable media for cartridge style elements. Tetratex ePTFE Membrane Filter Media can enhance the performance of the fabric filter by utilizing surface filtration technology as opposed to traditional depth filtration methods.

Tetratex can help optimize filter performance, increase bag life and production rates, and reduce downtime. The unique structure of the membrane prevents the penetration of fine dusts into the supporting substrate and facilitates excellent cleanability due to its non-stick characteristics. It is ISO9001 accredited and has the ISO14001 environmental certificate.
