Technical Absorbents (TAL) will exhibit its technology at Filtration 2014 in Baltimore, USA.

“It is no doubt that INDA’s filtration event has always been a successful, and this has prompted TAL to exhibit this year,” said TAL technical sales manager Dave Hill. “It will provide the perfect platform to demonstrate the capabilities of our technology within this sector and meet with many large filtration companies under the one roof.”

TAL’s Filtratas product range can be used to remove water from aviation fuel, automotive fuel and hydraulic oil. The company will be displaying both its fibre and fabric technologies.

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, according to the company.

Reduced degradation

SAF-based filter media fabrics is designed to remove both dispersed and free water to very low ppm levels at industry leading rates. This is said to result in reduced fuel and oil degradation and provide the required filter quality for efficient machine operation.

“SAFTM is a key component for a wide range of enhanced nonwoven filter media fabrics that are designed for the removal of water and particulates from aviation fuel, automotive diesel and a wide range of oils,” said Dave Hill. “Such fabrics help reduce problems associated with water contamination in such situations. Its versatility gives rise to cost savings over traditional cellulosic-based absorption media, while offering full compliance potential to stringent international filtration standards.”
