Synteq XP filter medium sets new benchmark in compressed air filtration

Up to 40 % energy savings due to reduced pressure drop

(PresseBox) (Haan, ) The filtration specialist Donaldson presented the current results of its inten-sive research and development work at the HANNOVER MESSE: The revo-lutionary high-performance filter media Synteq XP results in an unrivalled performance increase in compressed air filtration. Compared to previously available filter media, Synteq XP increases the efficiency significantly while simultaneously reducing the energy consumption due to a much lower differential pressure. By this up to 40 % additional energy savings can be achieved. In order to make optimal use of this high savings potential, Donaldson offers a filter element replacement for the previously available housing ranges.

The new filter medium Synteq XP combines two innovations in one product: A unique fibre blend filtration media and a new manufacturing technology. Conventional filter media have been produced for decades by adding binder. With the new Synteq XP technology polyester fibres and mi-cro-fine borosilicate fibres are thermally melted together without using binder. The use of the polyester fibres creates a long-term stable structure, which sustainably supports the high filtration efficiency and dirt holding capacity of the borosilicate fibres. Synteq XP thereby combines highest filtration performance by the extraordinary depth of the fibre bed with an optimal dirt holding capacity and great stability.

The performance data of the Synteq XP compressed air filters, which are offered for various applications as fine, micro and sub-micro filters, are tested and validated according to the international filter standard ISO 12500-1. The compatibility of the media with all standard contaminants in compressed air (mineral and synthetic compressor oils, their residue and other lubricants, water and solids) was intensively tested in the Donaldson laboratories and in real applications.
