These drivers and developments have resulted in the nonwoven filtration market consuming an ever-greater amount of nonwoven material, reaching 1.3 million tonnes in 2018, an annual increase of 7.5% from 2008. The filtration end use is the fifth largest (in tonnage) of the nonwoven segments, consuming 9% of the world’s nonwovens production in 2018, and …

Manufacture of spiral-wound cartridge filters

A spiral-wound element has significant surface area, resulting in extremely high packing density. The filter is also easy to install and maintain in the system, and it offers a long life due to the durability of the spiral-wound element. The history of desalination dates back to Aristotle and other intellectuals in ancient Greece. In the …

Brine (NaCl) aerosols captured on (A) as-spun and (B) polarized PVDF filter media

Harshal Gade is pursuing his Ph.D. in Chemical Engineering at University of Akron, where he is in his third year working in the Multiphase Transport Research Group under Prof. George Chase, Ph.D. Gade’s research topics involve polarization of electro-spun polymeric nanofibers and using them in various filtration and separation applications, such as air filtration and …

Cityscape with HVAC Equipment

Environmental concerns today often revolve around the outdoor environment – whether it be greenhouse gas emissions and climate change, water security and scarcity, waste disposal and management, and the list goes on. However, the indoor environment is an area where, arguably, there should be more concern, particularly when it comes to air quality. According to …

Reverse osmosis process

Reverse osmosis (RO) is a process that is commonly employed for desalination of seawater. RO systems leverage asemi-permeable membrane to remove ions, molecules and unwanted contaminants and particles (salt in the case of desalination) from water. In a u-tube with unsalinated water on one side, salinated water on the other side, separated by a semi-permeable …
