Specialty Chemicals

Specialty Chemicals

This category encompasses a myriad of different compounds, gases, and production processes. The dust collection systems can be either nuisance dust collection or powder/gas separation systems. These process recovery systems are integral to the production of the compounds or gases. The end product these plants manufacture can be quite expensive to produce, or very toxic and hazardous to the external environment. High efficiency filter media is very commonly employed at these locations. Mikrotex® expanded PTFE membrane laminates applied to a variety of substrates, Micro-Denier felts, and special finishes are just a few of the options offered by Menardi for these applications. Bag cages are also offered in stainless steel and other materials to increase filter life and improve production time. Below is a partial list of areas in which Menardi has supplied filtration technology:

Menardi air filtration product solutions for specialty chemicals:

Example Dust Collection Application
Dust collection systems in the Plastics production process are often undersized, or under pressure to maximize gas flow due to increased production demands. We offer our Mikro-Pleat™ pleated filters for these situations. Pleated elements can substantially increase cloth area over conventional filter bags and can result in lower pressure loss and improved gas flow. The spunbond media used in manufacturing the pleated elements is also up to 50% more efficient than conventional felted fabric. Fabric options include: Mikrotex®PTFE membrane laminates, oleophobic finishes, conductive finishes for static electricity abatement as well as high temperature fabrics. Lower compressor requirements can also be realized due to lower air pressure demand for cleaning.
