Separation and screening

19 Jan 2024  |
Industrial textiles are a versatile and essential component of many separation equipment and systems. They are used in many industrial processes to separate one substance from another. In the field of filtration, industrial textiles are widely used to separate particles from fluids and gases. For example, filter fabrics are used in air and liquid filtration in industries such as food and beverage production, water purification, and chemical processing. They can be made from a variety of natural and synthetic fibers and can be treated with special coatings and finishes to enhance their performance in specific applications.

Industrial textiles are also used in other types of separation systems such as those in mining and coal-burning industries. They can be used to separate solid materials from liquids in mineral processing and to separate dust from gases in emissions control systems.

Separation textiles

Separation textiles are also widely used in the field of oil and gas exploration, production, and refining. Oil absorbing booms and pads are used to separate oil spills on water, keeping the environment and marine life safe. Another application for separation textiles is geotextiles, which are used to separate different layers of soil in construction and civil engineering projects. Geotextiles are permeable fabrics that allow water and air to pass through while preventing soil from mixing. In short, industrial textiles are a vital component of many separation systems and equipment across multiple industries. They can be made of different materials and treated with special coatings and finishes to suit specific applications, and they help to bring more efficiency and sustainability to the production processes and final products.

Industrial textiles for the screening equipment application

Industrial textiles are commonly used in screening equipment, which are devices that are used to separate materials into different sizes or grades. These textiles are used in a wide range of industries, such as mining, construction, and recycling, and can be made from a variety of natural and synthetic fibers. One of the most common forms of screening equipment that uses industrial textiles is the vibrating screen. These screens use a woven or perforated industrial textile to separate materials based on size. The industrial textile is stretched over a frame and made to vibrate, causing the particles to move and pass through the openings in the textile, separating them by size. Industrial textiles are also used in non-vibrating screens, such as trommels and static screens. Trommels are cylindrical screens that rotate, using the industrial textile to separate materials by size as they pass through. Static screens are typically used in the recycling industry and use industrial textiles to separate materials by size or grade as they fall down the screen. In addition, industrial textiles are also used in filter press, the equipment that separate liquids from solids in a slurry by passing the slurry through a filter cloth. These filter cloths can be made from synthetic fibers such as polypropylene and polyester, known for its chemical resistance, or natural fibers like cotton, known for its absorbency. Overall, industrial textiles are an essential component of screening equipment, helping to separate materials into different sizes and grades efficiently and effectively. They can be made from a variety of fibers and treated with special coatings and finishes to suit specific applications, thus contributing to the industries in which they are used to operate with high productivity and lower environmental impacts.

Industrial textiles for sisters

Industrial textiles are used in sifters to provide a barrier for the particle separation process, usually used in screens or mesh. They are stretched over a frame, and the particles pass through the openings in the textile, separating them by size. Industrial textiles are also used as filter bags in sifters used in food industry. These bags capture larger particles that are not meant to pass through the sifter, and they can be made of various materials such as nylon, polypropylene, and cotton, depending on the application and end use of the product. Additionally, the surfaces of the sifters can be coated or treated with special finishes to enhance performance and increase the lifespan of the industrial textile. Overall, industrial textiles play an important role in sifter equipment, being a key component in the separation process of materials by size or grade, and it can be adapted to different industries and products. They also help to bring more efficiency, productivity, and sustainability to the production processes.
