US-based water purification specialists, CycloPure, has collaborated with fibre technology manufacturer, Engineered Fibers Technology (EFT), to successfully load CycloPure’s adsorbent, DEXSORB, on to filter papers.

Using EFT’s nanofibrillated fibre mechanics, EFTec, in combination with wet laid processes, CycloPure is now able to make its adsorbents available in media enhanced filter papers. The resulting format holds the DEXSORB media in a uniform application, retaining a high removal level of pollutants from drinking water featured by the adsorbents in powder form.

Robert Evans, managing director of EFT, said that the company’s EFTec nanofibrillated fibres provide a way to bind particulate adsorbents into a wet-laid filter media. He added: “We were able to lay down the CycloPure adsorbents in a uniform application with the levels of permeability and sheet strength required for pleating and use in filter cartridges.” 

CycloPure CEO, Frank Cassou, said: “Adapting our adsorbents for use in consumer filtration products has been a major area of focus. The ability to load our powder media on to filter papers paves the way for the use of DEXSORB in point-of-use water filtration.”
