Conwed, the leading plastic netting manufacturer in the world, will display its latest filtration netting technology at FILTECH 2015 in Cologne, Germany (Hall 11.1-Booth D27, February 24-26, 2015). Organized annually in Europe, FILTECH is one of the largest and most important filtration events worldwide. This international exhibition features more than 350 global exhibitors and gathers industry professionals concerned with designing, improving, purchasing, selling or researching filtration and separation materials, equipment and services.

Conwed manufactures the leading netting portfolio for filtration applications. From extruded cylinder tubes, sleeves and reverse osmosis feed spacers to diamond and square extruded netting for pleat support and core protection, Conwed offers a wide range of customization options. “Our netting provides essential protection, support and reinforcement functionalities to diverse filtration products and we collaborate closely with our customers to customize every netting solution we create,” said Ivan Soltero, Strategic Marketing Manager at Conwed.

Conwed netting can be found in diverse filtration segments such as beverages, compressed air and gas, food processing, heating, ventilating, air conditioning (HVAC), water and liquid filtration, engines and more. Its extruded cylinder tubes are commonly used to protect delicate filtration media due to their strength and rigidity. They are used in outer shields as core protection in wound or pleated elements.

Conwed also commercializes netting sleeves that help safeguard and preserve delicate filtration media.
Each netting sleeve is designed to meet temperature and chemical resistance specifications and is available in tailored mesh shapes, diameters, lengths, weights and colors. Netting sleeves can be found in cartridge filtration as well as other protection and containment applications.

Among its most advanced netting technology, Conwed has an exceptional portfolio of feed spacers for reverse osmosis applications. Frequently known as scrim, mesh, net, or netting, feed spacers act as one of the layers of wound materials in Reverse Osmosis (RO) filters and provide vital separation between the membranes to achieve superior filter performance. “For many years, feed spacer development has been an afterthought; we are now proactively taking on the task of studying and testing how feed spacers can impact reverse osmosis. Biofouling, pressure drop and membrane damage are our RO customers’ key challenges and we strive to address them from a feed spacer developer’s perspective”, said Soltero.
