Ahlstrom expands technology capabilities in filtration, enabling new solutions with an increased lifetime from its Hyun Poong plant in South Korea

A longer filter lifetime is one of the key features helping to sustain operations and boost performance with minimal interruptions. This not only saves costs associated with frequent filter replacements but also reduces energy consumption and minimizes environmental impacts by lowering emissions. In addition, a longer filter lifetime can reduce the risk of system failures, downtimes, and potential equipment damage, further enhancing operational efficiency and reliability.

Ahlstrom continues its over 50-year commitment and support to the global filtration industry by adding a calendering capability at its filtration media production plant in Hyun Poong, South Korea. This technology further advances synthetic filter media solutions by improving mechanical strength and opening a wide range of possibilities in terms of filtration performances. The investment will be fully operational by Q2-2023.

New synthetic materials have more surface area available, therefore extending the filter lifetime and offering a more sustainable alternative to competing materials. The media can be used for both air and liquid filtration applications including air pollution control, oil, and fuel filtration. Products are easier to convert, which offers further savings for filter manufacturers. These capabilities reinforce our purpose to deliver products which Purify and Protect.

“This investment is another example of our commitment to our customers in the Asia-Pacific region,” says Kathrin Hueppe, Head of Asia, Filtration. “Improving our capabilities in the Hyun Poong plant allows us to serve their growing needs in high-performance filtration materials.”
