FibeRio Launches The Fiber Engine FX Series Systems with 10X Increase in Output
(Nanowerk News) FibeRio Technology Corporation announces today the launch of its new generation of Forcespinning® equipment specifically designed to meet the production needs of fine fiber media producers and converters. FibeRio’s core Forcespinning® nanofiber technology has become synonymous with high output melt and solution nanofiber production, and theintroduction of the Fiber Engine FX Series takes the economics of nanofiberproduction to levels never before achieved. The benefits of nanofibers are now commercially viable for a greater variety of nonwovens media applications including air filtration, liquid filtration, apparel, acoustic insulation, energy, packaging and other markets. The new FX Series offers reliable, low cost deployment of a wide range of polymers in a fine fiber format.
The Fiber Engine FX was designed with a modular and expandable architecture and it is therefore configurable for 1.1 meter (FX1100) or 2.2 meter (FX2200) line widths. With a total output of up to 200 grams per minute and compatible with line speeds of up to 200 meters per minute, the FX can be installed in-line with meltblown or other nonwoven processing equipment for the manufacture of composite or standalone media. For a media designer,this means extracting maximum benefit from the high performance (nanofiber)layers where it actually matters, whether it’s improved hydrostatic head, air permeability, filtration efficiency, pressure drop, breathability, conductivity, or acoustic and thermal impedance.
“The Fiber Engine FX is the culmination of extensive engineering and process development work to match the high performance needs of our diverse customer base and their applications”, said Ellery Buchanan, CEO. “Our customers depend on us for a complete solutions package, to not only mitigate their risk, but to get their end products to market more quickly”.
FibeRio is the efficiency and performance layer expert offering composite media improvement services including nanofiber membrane development, pilot production for limited launches and performance layer supply. The Fiber Engine FX delivers on industry’s need for high output, versatile, yet economic nanofiber production solutions.
