Clear Edge’s proven compact filter elements (CFETM) and ceramic filter elements (CerafilTM) as well as Filtrair BV’s synthetic filter media and pocket filters complement Filtration Group’s product range. The broad portfolio of air filters provides solutions for all applications involving gases, dust and debris that need to be extracted from the working room. Innovation power and decades of experience make Filtration Group filter elements a perfect combination of advanced technology and proven quality. The high-quality air filters make an important contribution to the protection of employees and equipment and increase the productivity of processes, which would be strongly affected by dust and dirt.
The solutions offered by Filtration Group Industrial (formerly MAHLE Industrial Filtration GmbH) stand for high-performance, long-lasting and efficient modules and components in the area of air purification. These well-established filtration solutions ensure interrupted and efficient operations of your equipment and facilities for more than 50 years now.
For over 30 years, Clear Edge filtration has been manufacturing flat, pleated filter cartridges, called compact filter elements (CFE™), as well as ceramic filter elements (Cerafil™). With its head office in Salzgitter, Germany, Clear Edge Filtration has provided products and services to a wide range of customers in the areas of mining, tunnel construction, laser cutting and liquid painting as well as application areas for dedusting.
For over 50 years, Filtrair has been a leading manufacturer of synthetic filter media and rigid pocket filters. The filter media for intake air provides ultimate protection against the intrusion of harmful, natural or organic dusts and pollutants for indoor areas as well as for commercial, industrial and gasturbine processes. We are a market leader for filtration in automotive body repair facilities.
Filtration Group offers a large selection of filter media for dust filter cartridges. This ensures that the right solution can be found for virtually any application.
Special surface materials with web coating, PTFE membrane or meltblown micro-fibers guarantee a cost-optimized and reliable continuous operation of dedusting systems.
For the pharmaceutical and food services industry, FDA-approved materials are available.
Star-pleated Filtration Group dust filter cartridges are used to separate very fine particles from gases. The gas flows inward through the cartridge and is discharged via the open end cap on the top.
Due to the new Filtration Group pleat distance control for polyester and cellulose based filter media, the performance of the Filtration Group polyester cartridges increase up to 44 %, compared with standard polyester cartridges on the market.
Filtrair’s fine and coarse filter media are 100% synthetic. The high performance fibres consist of a multi-layer technology with progressive density and have a very high dust absorption with optimal pressure drop behaviour. Filtrair has a unique hydrophobic media line that has been specially developed as a low-pressure pre-filter for pleated static cartridge fine filters of combustion engines and air intake systems. This media line offers a number of valuable benefits:
Filtrair pocket filters consist of progressive, multi-layer and synthetic air filter media. The pocket filters are fully rigid and impregnated. Diamond spacers are fitted in the pockets to ensure optimised aerodynamic flow behaviour. An aluminium ring in the frame ensures optimum stability. Filtrair pocket filters are welded and framed in PU injection moulding machines. They are mainly used in a prefilter stage. The pocket filters are used in the following markets:
Our CFEs are completely tip-bonded, self-supporting filter plates that combine the advantages of filter bags and filter cartridges. Depending on the application, compact filter elements can be equipped with oil and water repellent polyester fleece, microporous coatings or PTFE membrane.
Furthermore, CFEs can also be used in environments with high dust loads and can be efficiently cleaned by pulse jet cleaning.
Our CFEs offer a number of valuable advantages:
The benefits for you
In machining and forming processes in industry –
for example in modern machine tools – cooling lubricants (oil or emulsions) are used under high pressure. This
allows increased oil mist and emulsions to enter the ambient air. To ensure that the aerosol concentration does not
exceed the MWC (maximum workspace concentration) limit values, the cooling lubricant mist must be reliably and
continuously extracted and cleaned from the working area of the machines. This is a problem traditional systems are
unable to handle.
We combine all our experience in our dedusting units. The
interaction of FG filter elements, specially developed cleaning units and optimally designed housings results in our
compact dedusting systems. Our standard range starts with small top on filters and extends to large central exhaust
systems, if required also with ATEX version. If required, our standard units can also be flexibly adapted to
customer requirements in order to achieve the optimum solution for continuous and trouble-free operation with low
Dust, debris and water are vital to eliminate from making direct contact with critical equipment in a working room.
Desiccant breathers prevent costly contaminants from entering a lubricant system and causing premature failure of
Filtration Group offers all filter systems and separation systems as customized solutions. Our experts will be happy to work with you to find the version that best meets the specialized requirements in your work environment.
