Using nanotechnology for more efficient dust collection

Even if your process dust doesn’t contain nanoparticles, cartridge filters built with nanotechnology can improve your plant’s dust collection system.

Nanotechnology -- the control of matter smaller than 1 micron -- is a hot topic. Nanotechnology is used in products as diverse as atomically engineered food, anti-aging cosmetics, stain-resistant clothing, self-cleaning window glass, high-performance golf clubs, and information storage products. But for companies that process and handle dry bulk solids, one of the most exciting and useful applications of nanotechnology is the use of nanofiber media in dust collector cartridge filters. When used in these filters, one microscopic layer of fibers 1,000 times smaller than the diameter of a human hair can translate into huge advantages in filter efficiency, cleanability, filter life, and energy use.
