Mac Process says that the MEGABond delivers HEPA efficiencies for a wide variety of dust collection applications. Now available for use in SpaceSaver® and Mac2Flo® cartridge dust collectors, MEGABond can withstand rigorous pulse-cleaning.The cartridge includes a high quality blended base media; with uniformly consistent nanotechnology fibres tightly bonded to the substrate. The result is superior mechanical strength and extreme durability with increased surface dust loading, fractional efficiency and better dust holding capacity. Throughout the duration of tests on various dust samples, MEGABond cartridges outperformed the current standard, accommodating twice the air to cloth ratio in the process without increased emissions.Nanofibre technology offers MERV 17 operational efficiency and delivers outstanding efficiencies on submicron particles. MEGABond nanofibres will not flake off during pleating or pulsing.According to the company, air pulse cleaning is more efficient and effective with MEGABond’s FixedPleat feature. The unique pleat spacing design allows for more systematic cleaning between the pleats of the media. This improved cleaning extends the life span of the cartridge.“Ever tightening environmental restrictions are placing new demands on the filtration media industry,” said Jay Brown, president and chief executive officer of Mac Process. “Our ultra-high efficiency filter media offerings - including MEGABond cartridge media and DYNA-MAC® micro-denier bags - provide exceptional removal of submicron particulate.”DYNA-MAC felts are engineered with micro-denier fibres which provide the highest filtration efficiency of any non-membrane filter felt for many difficult applications. DYNA-MAC felt is 53% more efficient than previous high efficiency felt offerings.Increased surface area of the micro-denier fibres keep the dust particles on the surface of a DYNA-MAC felt filter bag. The improvement in surface filtration also provides excellent cake release and filtration efficiency. The improved cake release leads to lower fan horsepower requirements and fewer pulses to maintain production demand. Less cleaning means reduced consumption of compressed air, which lower operating costs.
