Press Release Summary:
Raptor needlefelt blends para-aramid fibers with aramid fibers, while Apache needlefelt combines para-aramid fibers with fiberglass scrim. Capable of operating continuously at 500Â°F, Apache felt offers alternative to PTFE felts in applications where chemical attack is not a concern. Both Raptor and Apache felts are suited for pulse jet baghouses in asphalt, cement, lime, incineration, steel, coal fired boilers, foundries, and metal smelting industries.
Original Press Release:
Development of More Cost Effective Higher Temperature Felts
By blending para-aramid fibers with aramid fibers, Technical Felts Company has created Raptor needlefelt that is less expensive than conventional felts. Raptor felt is also thermally and physically superior to conventional aramid felts.
In another variation to the concept of blending, Technical Felts Company has needlepunched para-aramid fibers to fiberglass scrim. The result is Apache needlefelt capable of operating continuously at 500 deg.F. Apache felt is a more cost effective alternative to PTFE felts in applications where chemical attack is not a major issue. Apache felt is also designed to generate superior filtration efficiency in comparison to woven fiberglass filterbags in pulse jet baghouses
Raptor and Apache felts are currently being used in pulse jet baghouses in asphalt, cement, lime, incineration, steel, coal fired boilers, foundries and metal smelting industries.
Technical Felts Company employs advanced fiber principles to develop less expensive higher temperature needlefelts for the fabric filtration industry.
