Advanced Tandem Pleat Technology Blows Away Competition in Filter Performance

Press release date: Sep 30, 2010

Fab-Tex Filtration is pleased to announce great success in applications utilizing our own Advanced Tandem Pleat Technology. This proprietary method of construction is designed to replace traditional polyester cartridge filters in most equipment. Dust Collectors, Pneumatic Conveying Equipment, Regenerative Air Street Sweeping Machines and Powder Coating Booths will all see increased filter efficiencies and this technology can also be adapted to numerous other cartridge filtration applications.

Tandem Pleat construction involves the addition of a rigid plastic mesh pleated in combination with the filter media to provide 100% pleat support. Adding Tandem Pleat Technology will eliminate the dead spots seen on a traditional filter where the air flow is restricted because of outside air pressure forcing the pleat to collapse upon itself. Fab-Tex Filtration's Tandem Pleat Technology is engineered to provide a complete utilization of the filter media so no filter area is lost due to this effect.

Both laboratory and field tests have proven adding Tandem Pleat construction to a filter provides 30% to 40% higher efficiency on sub micron particulate in the range of 0.3 to 0.7 microns. Dust loading tests confirmed Tandem Pleat filters will provide greater air handling capacity than other filters not utilizing this innovative manufacturing technique.

Advanced Tandem Pleat Technology is available for use on most replacement filter cartridges and in numerous industrial applications where dust control is necessary.
