Non Woven Filter Media Technology Expands
When most people think about fabric they start off by thinking about the clothes they wear. They think of their favorite matching outfit from the first day of third grade. They think about the fine linen in the suit they wore on their first interview. Fabric is a part of our everyday life. It covers the furniture in our home, the seats in our cars, and nearly every part of our bodies on the coldest days of the year. The fabric industry is an important part of our nation’s economy as well. In 2013, the textile and apparel industries employed 373,000 people and consumption of domestic cotton exceeded 1.7 billion pounds. Other than the food we eat, it could be argued that fabric is one of the most important tangible aspects of our lives. Few people, however, realize that fabric even plays an important part in the air that we breath.
Non woven filter media is used to cleanse, purify and regulate nearly every part of our life. Whether it is an industrial filtration system that controls the amount of pollutants leaving a factory smoke stack, or whether it is used as liquid filter bags to maintain the safety of water, non woven filter media is an integral part of big business and everyday life. Cars use oil filtration systems made of non woven filter media to make them run efficiently, hospitals use dust collector filter bags to maintain air quality and large shopping malls use air intake filters to provide a pleasant shopping experience. All are examples of non woven filter media.
In the U.S. the filtration industry and its varied uses of non woven filter media is worth $12.4 billion. Across the world, experts predict that the he global air filters market will surpass $19 billion by 2020. Whether you realize it or not, the development and research of non woven filter media is critical to the health of your family, the quality of the air that you great, the purity of the water that you drink, and the efficiency of the car that you drive.
