Ahlstrom-Munksjö, a leader in fibre-based materials, has announced the launch of Ahlstrom-Munksjö Extia 1000, highly durable, filtration media designed to extend filtration life time for air pollution control applications, helping to protect people and the environment. Extending filtration lifetime by more than 40%, the solution aims to help customers extend the operational duration, before needing to change the filters.
“Extia 1000 will set the new benchmark in terms of filtration media for air pollution control cartridge applications,” said Giuseppe Costa, VP Product Development Filtration and Performance. “Due to its unique design, Extia 1000 dramatically extends filtration life time; it also delivers highly effective removal of coarse particles at over 3 times lower level of pressure drop. Additionally, Extia®1000 proves to be much easier to convert into a filter, on both knife and rotary pleating machines.”
“Extia 1000 is the first product on the Extia platform, a range of highly durable filtration media, specifically designed for industrial filtration applications. From this platform, a family of products will be built over time, all combining strength, outstanding convertibility and filtration performance. Our product platform Extia is an excellent example of how Ahlstrom-Munksjo can leverage on its experience in manufacturing high performance filtration products to deliver new solutions for Industrial Filtration applications,” commented Fulvio Capussotti, EVP Filtration and Performance.
“Delivering high performance filtration media for industrial filtration is a priority for our business area and we will continue to develop and strengthen our product offering for our customers in this field.”
The Filtration and Performance business area of Ahlstrom-Munksjö develops and produces filtration materials for transportation, as well as industrial applications. It also produces glass fibre media for flooring products and wind turbine blades and makes nonwoven materials for automotive, construction, textile, hygiene applications and wall cover materials.
