Filter media for fuel filtration

Functional filter combinations for fuel filtration

Efforts to continually reduce fuel consumption have led to dramatic developments in fuel injection systems. Increasing injection pressures require significantly improved filter performance. Alongside higher particle removal efficiencies, removal of water plays a decisive role in reducing wear in the injection system.

To meet these demands, Neenah Gessner combines impregnated filter media with micro-fibre polyester meltblowns. The impregnated filter media assures easy converting by the customer, maintains a stiff and stable pleat pack, achieves high efficiencies for particle removal and resists the ingress of water droplets. The meltblown layer guarantees high dust holding capacity and enhances water shedding. Depending on individual customer requirements, filter media can be specially developed with resin systems having hydrophobic or hydrophylic properties.
