Next AFS Southeast Chapter Meeting: New Structures and Fiber Materials for Filter Media in Different Areas of Application

The next meeting of the Southeast Chapter of the American Filtration & Separations Society is scheduled for Thursday, October 7, from 10:00 to 11:00 am central time. This virtual meeting is free to AFS members and $15 for non-members.

The topic will be "New Structures and Fiber Materials for Filter Media in Different Areas of Application," presented by Tobias Thiem of Norafin Industries.

The readiness of many users to use new types of fiber materials or nonwoven structures has increased due to new findings in research and ever-increasing demands on filter media with rising raw material prices. The filtration market has been in a state of upheaval for years and there is a constant search for completely new approaches for different areas of application. With various new developments, Norafin sees itself as a competent innovation partner for future filter solutions for its customers.

As a supplier of needle-punched and hydroentangled nonwovens, Norafin supplies a wide range of different product solutions in different areas of filtration. Here, among other things, hot gas filtration is one of the most growing markets, in which more and more innovative solutions for the various challenges are required. The ability to process a wide range of polymer-based and non-organic fibers enables Norafin to offer tailor-made product solutions. The production method, which is based on several independently working carding systems, allows a combination of different fiber layers and support structures, which are then consolidated in further steps using the water jet process. With this advantage, Norafin offers several products with a unique selling point for filtration.

Tobias Thiem has been the R&D Project Manager for Filtration at Norafin since 2011. He studied textile engineering at the University of Applied Sciences, Zwickau, in Germany.
