East Walpole, Mass., November 30, 2021 – Hollingsworth & Vose (H&V) has entered into an agreement with I.W. Tremont to market and distribute H&V Trupor®, a novel microporous filter media solution. H&V Trupor® enables best-in-class flow rates and delivers membrane reliability via patented microporous filtration media using PES-PBT and PVDF-PBT.
“Microfiltration is critical across industries, making water cleaner, bioprocess products safer, semiconductor products cheaper and industrial processes run longer,” said Fred Lybrand H&V’s Global Marketing Director for Process Liquids. “We are pleased to partner with I.W. Tremont to bring H&V Trupor® to a broader audience.”
H&V 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.
“Tremont will leverage our strong position in general laboratory consumables, life sciences and medical diagnostics to explore opportunities for the H&V Trupor® media,” said Jim Averso, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at I.W. Tremont. “We feel we will find significant application in our core markets.”
Trupor® will be available in formats consistent with laboratory consumables such as membrane flats and within structured devices. The significantly lower back pressure improves device design in syringe and inline filter devices used in analytical sample preparation applications. Trupor® is available in PA6 chemistry as well directly through H&V or through Superior Felt and Filtration.
