These Filters are out of a food manufacturing plant.   The dirty filters are on the left, and the filters after FilterPro cleaning on the right.  The filters are READY TO BE RE-USED!

After the guys in the cleaning area got soaked with junk this week we were working on a new little device to go up into the inside of a filter used to make bedding.  The cotton based product triples in size when it gets wet.  Believe it or not we calculated that we removed 20,000 pounds of dirt out of the 100 filters.

Not a lot of innovation this week.. Been super busy cleaning filters.  Did get some more plumbing on the TRI-OX system.  At this rate it will take a while.

Fantastic Idea
We have a secret weapon.  It is a guy that has the ability to take new technology and adapt it to our industry.   What does that mean to FilterPro?  We always are improving.
This week
--  As you know we developed a solution for food plants that removes any mold or mildew stains from the media.  This has been a great innovation.
 Well it just got better. 
Our solution was put into a wand that delivers the solution into the fabric using ultrasonic waves (not sonic but ultrasonic).   Our solution combined with the ultrasound technology penetrates the media, and breaks up the stain at a sub-micron level.
It is also kind of fun to use.

"Extra, Extra read all about it."
We are adding a new section on the website to document, and demonstrate our commitment to sustainability. It should be out late this week. The area discusses our trials;  Both successes, and failures.  We hope to share our ideas.  Some will be small projects, and some will have a large impact.  I hope you enjoy it.

I wanted to share a new discovery.  Our engineer discovered a way to make our process even better.  The paper filters in the picture are both cleaned. The filter in the foreground was cleaned using this new technique.  The brightness is astounding.  The picture does not do it justice.

We are continuing to make progress on our process.  Although we do not like paper filters, there is a demand for them.  Most people however after trying a polyspun filter are sold on the improvement.   With that being aid I want to show you a recent picture of  some of our work.   I am amazed at the skill of our technicians and their developments.

Andy is working a machine to measure material strength.   Currently the industry uses a machine that does destructive testing.  In other words the filter is destroyed in the test.  This is called a burst test.  Andy's concept will test the minimum strength of a filter media. In other words it is non destructive.
We will use this on incoming filters to test them prior to processing.  The improvement comes with the fact that we will know the media strength before the filters are processed.

What is cavitation?
Cavitation is what happens when there is a loss of dynamic reaction between the prime mover (fan), and the air.  Symptoms  are a change of frequency (sound pitch of fan), and a loss of motor amperage.  I plain terms this is when the filters plug, and the fan cuts the air and free wheels.  It cannot produce the suction or pressure required.  It can sound like a whooshing sound that varies up and down in pitch.
Easy to correct.  Change your filters.

Wanted to share a picture of a batch of food filters we did yesterday.  Pretty amazing job.
