At Micronics, choices of yarn fiber materials, yarn designs, weave patterns, sewing choices, edge treatments, and more are all incorporated into our filter cloth construction to increase cloth life, improve filter cake release characteristics, and enhance filtration operations.
Starting with an understanding of your process and operating conditions, we work with you to select the filter cloth yarn types and fibers – along with weave types – that impart the set of specific characteristics needed for your application. Yarn fibers are typically produced from:
- Polypropylene (PP)
- Polyethylene (PE)
- Nylon and
Other materials such as Kynar® and PET are used for special applications.
Combining fiber and yarn types – along with weave types – to suit specific applications and operating conditions is Micronics’ specialty. This is just one area where our know-how and years of industry experience really shine.
