Conwed shares filtration netting technology at FILTECH 2016

Conwed netting delivers protection, separation, support and channeling functionalities for a wide range of filtration applications.

Minneapolis, MN (October 4, 2016) - Conwed, the leading plastic netting manufacturer in the world, will display its latest filtration netting technology at FILTECH 2016, known as The Filtration Event, in Cologne, Germany (Hall 11.1 – Booth D27, October 11-13, 2016). Organized every year in Europe, FILTECH is one of the largest and most important filtration events worldwide.  This international exhibition gathers over 350 exhibitors and 12,000 industry professionals concerned with designing, improving, purchasing, selling or researching filtration and separation materials, equipment and services.

Conwed manufactures the leading netting portfolio for filtration applications. From extruded cylinder tubes, sleeves and reverse osmosis feed spacers to diamond and square extruded netting for core protection or pleat and media support, Conwed offers a wide range of customization options. “Our netting provides essential protection, separation, support and channeling functionalities to diverse filtration products. We take pride on customizing our netting configurations to meet our customers’ precise specifications and enjoy collaborating at any point of the entire product development process, from concept to commercialization”, said Ivan Soltero, senior strategic marketing manager at Conwed.

Conwed netting can be found in diverse filtration segments such as beverages, compressed air and gas, food processing, heating, ventilating, air conditioning (HVAC), water and liquid filtration, engines and more. Its extruded cylinder tubes are commonly used to protect delicate filtration media due to their strength and rigidity. They are used in outer shields as core protection in wound or pleated elements. Conwed also commercializes netting sleeves that help safeguard and preserve delicate filtration media. Each netting sleeve is designed to meet temperature and chemical resistance specifications and is available in tailored mesh shapes, diameters, lengths, weights and colors.  Netting sleeves can be found in cartridge filtration as well as other protection and containment applications.

In addition, Conwed has excelled at developing next-generation feed spacers for reverse osmosis (RO) applications. Frequently known as spacer, scrim, mesh, net, or netting, feed spacers act as one of the layers of wound materials in RO filters and provide vital separation between the membranes to achieve superior filter performance. “We develop feed spacers that help address the top three challenges in every RO system: membrane damage, pressure drop and biofouling. Our feed spacer designs and configurations can be customized to meet the right thickness, angles and chemical formulations required to achieve desired performance in different water desalination and brackish water filtration systems”, said Soltero.
