GE markets innovative fabric for coal-fired emissions controls

GE (NYSE: GE) introduced a bi-component felt media for construction of fabric filters used in coal-fired boiler baghouses, which provides an alternative to the usual polyphenylene sulfide (PPS) felt used in these applications.

The bi-component PPS media forms a strong bond when laminated with GE’s Preveil ePTFE membrane.

“A stronger membrane bond can improve filtration performance by helping to achieve lower emissions for longer periods,” said Jeff Ladwig, product manager – GE Power & Water, Air filtration. “It can contribute to better differential pressure and improved energy consumption due to the need for fewer cleaning cycles and lower pulse pressure.”
