Nomex® — More Efficient Hot Gas Filtration
DuPont™ Nomex®, an inherently thermal-resistant fiber, can withstand extreme stress — providing an ideal solution for high-temperature hot gas filtration applications.
For more than 40 years, DuPont™ Nomex® has developed improved hot gas filtration products which help address the prevailing environmental and safety legislation in countries around the world. Industries from asphalt and cement plants to steel smelting and non-ferrous metal production use filter media made of Nomex® thermal resistant fibers to help comply with stringent emission control requirements.
Nomex® fine fibers are used to help produce felts with low weight per unit area and high inflow velocities for improved filtration efficiency. Nomex® fiber is a product of choice in a wide range of high-temperature filtration applications. Filter bags of Nomex® are an industry leader in asphalt manufacturing facilities, as well as a variety of other applications. These filter bags help permit facilities to operate at higher temperatures, significantly improving capacity, and help to lower power costs and eliminate condensation.
