Powerful filters for cleaner air
Increasing health awareness, stricter environmental legislation, and ever more demanding industrial processes – there are many reasons for the increasing demands on air purity.
Thanks to high-performance air and HEPA filters, these requirements can be met. And in industry, oil and hydraulic filters play a very important role, as they protect machines and plants against contamination and the associated malfunctions and failures.
Reactive resin systems for a variety of filters
A number of reactive foam gaskets, casting resins and adhesives are used in the production process of filter systems to ensure their long-term function. Whether for air or liquid filters – as a leading developer and manufacturer of reactive resin systems based on polyurethane, epoxy, and silicone, RAMPF Polymer Solutions is your go-to-partner for filter production.
Conductive casting resins are of particular importance for filter production. If, for example, the static charge of a filter causes a spark blow during cleaning, this can lead to an explosion in the filter and thus in the system. To prevent this, RAMPF Polymer Solutions has developed soft (Shore A 85) and hard (Shore D 80) casting resins with a conductivity of 0.03 MOhm/cm. These exhibit good flowability, chemical resistance, and are machineable.
In addition to casting resins, other reactive resin systems are used in the various filter systems, such as:
- Liquid and thixotropic RAKU® PUR foam gaskets are used to seal air filter elements. They exhibit fast curing and short process times.
- 2K RAKU® PUR casting resins fix the individual filter elements in the filter frame to ensure optimum stability. These systems have good adhesion to plastics.
- When producing the filter medium, the filter fleeces are equipped with a RAKU® MELT hotmelt adhesive and then automatically folded. The hotmelt fixes the spacings of the filter paper folds.
- Filled RAKU® rigid foams are used to fix the filter medium in the frame. Here, high mechanical strength, a highly abrasion-resistant surface, and very good adhesion and chemical resistance are a must.
