Super water removal technology on display at FILTECH

Technical Absorbents Limited (TAL) will exhibit its SAF™ (Super Absorbent Fibre) technology at FILTECH in October 2016. The expo is the largest and most important filtration event world-wide, and is a must for all those concerned with designing, improving, purchasing, selling or researching filtration and separation equipment and services. It will take place between 11th to 13th October at the Koelnmesse in Cologne.

TAL will join over 350 global exhibitors as it demonstrates how its technology can be used to effectively remove water from a wide range of oils and fuels. TAL will exhibit on stand A28, Hall 11.1 and will be displaying its core SAF™ product range and also its converted nonwoven filter media fabrics. A team of product development specialist’s will be on-hand to demonstrate how the products work and provide advice if required. A significant reason for the majority of oil and fuel system failures is the presence of high water levels in dissolved, dispersed and free water. SAF™ based filter media fabrics can remove both dispersed and free water to very low ppm levels. This results in reduced fuel and oil degradation, and provides the required filter quality for efficient machine operation.

“SAF™ absorbs up to 200 times its own weight in demineralised water,” explains Product Development Director Dr Mark Paterson. “As a result, it is a key component for a wide range of enhanced nonwoven filter media fabrics that are designed to remove high levels of water and particulates from aviation fuel, automotive diesel and a wide range of oils.

“Such fabrics help reduce problems associated with water contamination and we have developed a diverse range of products for such applications. We can also work closely with customers to design and manufacture bespoke fabrics to meet specific requirements.”
