H&V offers a range of advanced filter media solutions suitable for use in industrial process liquid operations.

What Is the Role of Filtration in the Industrial Process Liquids Industry?

H&V defines industrial process liquids as any liquid that is not part of the petrochemical and/or automotive supply chain (i.e., no fuels, no lubricants, and no urea). This application area includes numerous compounds, including chemicals, cleaning supplies, semiconductor process liquids, chemical mechanical polishing (CMP) slurry, wastewater, electroplating baths, electrical discharge machining (EDM) fluids, industrial enzymes, inks, dyes, coatings, and more. Filtration plays a key role in the production and/or use of many of them, whether by improving their quality or performance. 

Which Current Industrial Process Liquid Trends Are Affecting Filtration Solutions?

Throughout the years, new trends within the industrial process liquids market have affected how and why filtration processes are performed. Some of the major trends currently influencing filters and filter media are: 

  • The demand for sustainability. In recent years, large companies have released sustainability reports that provide a new degree of transparency. Filtration is important to sustainability as it produces clean water and facilitates pollution control. Additionally, microfiltration, particle filtration, and other liquid treatment steps are vital to reducing waste and improving output in industrial processes that depend on fluids. 
  • The adoption of tighter process control standards. Today, manufacturers have a better understanding of the Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) for their systems and a greater focus on Return on Investment (ROI) than ever before. As a result, they demand products with tighter tolerances, process liquids with greater uniformity, and better control over liquids to increase yields.  
  • The pursuit of increasing quality. The continuous improvement mentality has highlighted the importance of better process control. These new measures often use filtration to improve yields for various industrial process liquid applications, such as semiconductor processes and the manufacture of inks, dyes, and coatings. 
  • The increased emphasis on risk mitigation. Manufacturers want better fluid control to improve the Health, Safety, and Environment (HSE) of their operations. Fluids need to be managed wisely to reduce hazards and mitigate risks. 

Why Choose H&V’s Industrial Process Liquid Filter Media Solutions?

As a worldwide leader in advanced filtration, Hollingsworth & Vose offers a broad range of product solutions for the industrial process liquids market, such as: 

  • Trupor®. Trupor is H&V’s microfiltration membrane product family available in standard grades (0.20 micron, 0.45 micron, 0.65 micron, 0.80 micron, 1.2 micron, and 5.0 micron) and in industry standard polymers – Nylon, PES, PVDF, and PBT. Trupor consistently shows superior flow rates, often twice that of industry benchmarks.
  • Wetlaid cellulose products. Wetlaid cellulose products are available in grades ranging from 50 micron down to 1 micron. They are used in various industrial and water treatment applications.
  • Meltblown products. Meltblown products are available for liquid filtration in polypropylene (PP), polyester (PBT), and nylon and grades from 30 micron down to 0.80 micron.
  • Wetlaid glass products. Wetlaid glass products come in grades ranging from 10 micron to 0.20 micron. They are utilized in numerous industrial process liquid filtration applications.

Our filtration solutions are widely used in industrial process liquid applications. For example:

  • Trupor® is used in industrial cooling systems to reduce particulate buildup and improve system life while extending element life and reducing changeout costs.
  • Trupor® and meltblown materials are used for electroplating baths, EDM, ink, dye, and other similar systems and to ensure industrial process water quality in a range of industries.
  • Wetlaid products are used in sludge concentration steps to reduce landfill volume and improve downstream water quality.
