Filtration is a process of separating particles and fluids in a suspension by using a filter. The fluid can be a liquid, a has, or a supercritical fluid. Using a filter for an industrial process can be straightforward and also a very hard task at the same time because it works for a wide range of applications.
Filtration is an integral part of most industrial activities as most industries use filters to:
- Protect and maintain their environment,
- purify fluids (air and liquids) and make them free from dust, dirt, and other contaminants,
- safeguard the working environment,
- isolate some products,
- and an increase in machine efficiency.
In What Automotive Industrial Services Are Filters Widely Used?
Automobile interior decoration
The automotive industry uses nonwoven filters as decorative textiles in cars. These decorative textiles are mostly used as headliners. Apart from nice appearance, these filters are easy to work it, they highly resist abrasions, and they do not decolorize easily.
Filc is a company that offers decorative textiles for headliners. These textiles meet all the automotive industry’s technical demands, and they satisfy the top requirements of modern design.
Industries use filters in services that require absorbing and trapping sound waves. In automotive, a filter plays a vital role when it comes to comfort. Filc produces a wide array of noise insulators that meet different demands of top leading OEMs.
Air filtration is a widely adopted technology to get rid of contaminants from an airstream because of its relative flexibility. Modern automobiles usually have two air filters: one in the cabin area and one made for the engine. Automotive industries use fabric, and fibrous filters for airborne contaminants control in the following services:
- Cabin air filtration
In the cabin air filtration, they use air filters to prevent dust, dirt, pollen, and some other contaminating gases from getting into the HVAC system of automobiles. These air filters are designed to enhance the quality of air and relief in the cabin area.
Automotive industries also improve the cabin area’s filtration performance to a higher level by adding a fine fiber melt blown filter layer. As an added advantage to their filtration service, they supply nonwoven filters that are chemically treated with various chemical treatments, such as antimicrobial treatment or anti-allergenic agent treatment.
- Engine air filtration
This service uses an air filter to stop dust, dirt, and other environmental contaminants from reaching the engine. Most engine filtration services use a two-layered nonwoven material as a filter. These materials are usually made from a hundred percent synthetic fiber. Synthetic fiber is necessary for making a long-lasting engine air filter.
