Hollingsworth & Vose has chosen Superior Felt & Filtration to distribute H&V’s Trupor, a novel microporous filter media solution. Trupor enables best-in-class flow rates and delivers membrane reliability via patented microporous filtration media. Microfiltration makes water cleaner, bioprocess products safer, semiconductor products cheaper and industrial processes run longer. Industries depend on microfiltration processes to develop new products and ensure consistent delivery of essential products.
“Microfiltration is an important area of process liquids, and H&V is excited about having a product available for an area with so much potential and growth,” said Fred Lybrand, global marketing director of process liquids for H&V. “We have partnered with Superior before on our Technostat product family, which has been very successful. Superior is an important partner for H&V.”
“The microfiltration market has established grades and materials that it depends on – H&V’s Trupor is made with 100% Nylon and is available now as 0.45 micron and 0.65 micron materials,” said Dr. Ping Hao, Technical Nonwoven Product Manager with Superior. “The combination of industry standard materials and grades and Superior’s customer focus and converting capabilities make a compelling case for anyone working with membranes to try Trupor.”
Trupor enables enhanced flow compared to traditional membranes, improving the ability to filter novel fluid streams. Its composite structure and superior pore size uniformity deliver consistent and reliable results in the key performance characteristics required by the analytical and diagnostic markets. In most cases, the thin formation of this media offers interchangeable equivalency to its cast film counterparts while delivering performance enhancement both to existing and new process streams.
Superior Felt & Filtration is a global distributor based in McHenry, Illinois, that offers value-added converting, including collating, slitting, pleating and die cutting. The company has previously partnered with H&V for over a decade distributing and fabricating Technostat, an electrostatic submicron filter media for high-efficiency air applications.
