Super absorbent fibre technology at FILTECH 2016

Filtech takes place between 11 – 13 October in Cologne, and is the largest and most important worldwide filtration event for those concerned with designing, improving, purchasing, selling or researching filtration and separation equipment and services.

TAL will be displaying its core SAFproduct range and also its converted nonwoven filter media fabrics. A team of product development specialists will be on-hand to demonstrate how the products work and provide advice if required.

A significant reason for the majority of oil and fuel system failures is the presence of high water levels in dissolved, dispersed and free water. The SAF-based filter media fabrics can remove both dispersed and free water to very low ppm levels which results in reduced fuel and oil degradation, and provides the required filter quality for efficient machine operation.

The company says that SAF absorbs up to 200 times its own weight in demineralised water and, as a result, it is a key component for a wide range of enhanced nonwoven filter media fabrics that are designed to remove high levels of water and particulates from aviation fuel, automotive diesel and a wide range of oils.
