Gore: Filter Bags

November 13, 2000
W.L. Gore & Associates, Inc. has introduced a new version of its AMAZON™ filter bags for dry particulate filtration that reportedly offers significantly improved durability as well as enhanced airflow. Designed for pulse jet bag houses operating up to 400F, the new high durability configuration launches the company's most advanced generation of GORE-TEX™ membrane, which is nearly four times stronger than existing membranes, the company reports. The new membrane is laminated to high quality aramid felt, which contains a scrim for added robustness. This allows AMAZON(TM) high durability filter bags to deliver increased moisture and acid resistance, product recovery, emissions control and long term mechanical endurance.
