Nanofibers typically range in diameter from 50 to 500 nanometers, depending on the kind of polymer employed and the design requirements. A particle of pollen is a tiny speck. The thick strand to the left is actually a section of human hair with a diameter of about 75,000 nm rather than a nanofiber. A web of nanofibers can be seen in the backdrop if you look attentively.
Nanofibers can be made from a wide range of polymers and substances, including naturally occurring polymers like collagen, cellulose, and gelatin as well as synthetic ones like polyurethane and lactic acid. Batteries, fuel cells, regenerated bio-tissue, and improved fluid filtration are just a few of the technologies that these and other polymers are being used to develop and improve.
The surface area that these fibers can cover in relation to the total volume of the material is enormous, despite the fact that they are practically impossible to see with the unaided eye. Because they are light and breathable, they are ideal for filtering out undesirable particles that can pass through ordinary filter fabric.
The four primary categories of pertinent filtration mechanisms using nanofiber filter media are as follows. These include depth filtration, cake filtration, depth filtration, and surface filtration.
In reality, the filtration procedures frequently combine two or more systems.
In surface filtering, the filter media’s surface is actively involved, and the surface pore apertures are precisely regulated in relation to the size of the particulate to be filtered. Surface filtering employs nanofibers and materials with reduced pore sizes in an effort to collect particles that are present at the medium’s surface.
According to the particulate size that needs to be filtered, the surface pore apertures of filter media might be accurately adjusted.
According to the particulate size that needs to be filtered, the surface pore apertures of filter media might be accurately adjusted. It is well known that reducing the filter media’s fiber diameter increases filter efficiency. The most penetrating particle size is shown by where the efficiency curves’ “V”-shaped deepest point is located (MPPS).
The MPPS falls as the fiber diameter decreases, while the capture efficiency of the most penetrating particle size improves. More effective filtration is often made possible by finer nanofibers, especially for the most invasive particle size.
The Global Nanofiber filter market accounted for $XX Billion in 2021 and is anticipated to reach $XX Billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of XX% from 2022 to 2030.
ProTura SB Nano Pleated Filters, a dust collection filter utilized in a variety of demanding applications, have been introduced by Parker Hannifin Corporation’s Industrial Gas Filtration and Generation Division, a pioneer in motion and control technology.
Technology-advanced nanofiber filter is used in the ProTura SB Nano Pleated Filters. The filters are made for demanding applications from a 100% synthetic base medium with a proprietary nanofiber layer added to the collecting surface.
In comparison to filters using spun-bond polyester filter media, the BHA product portfolio now includes two filter types that make use of SB Nano coating. This coating has been shown to extend filter life. Lower average differential pressure over the filter’s lifetime will also result in increased efficiency and more energy savings for the customer.
