NANOWEBŪ technology can be specifically designed to meet the stringent filtration requirements of many liquid applications. With improved efficiency, NANOWEB media's synthetic composition addresses the growing need for advanced microfiltration as well as reverse osmosis (RO) and ultrafiltration (UF) membrane prefiltration needs in a variety of liquid service applications. These include life sciences, food and beverage, and process liquid filtration.

It also offers a more durable nanofiber option for fuel and lube filtration. Supplied as a standalone substrate, with thickness ranging from 100 microns to 200 microns depending on optimized properties and performance for a given application, H&V's NANOWEB technology offers superior filtration efficiency with lower pressure drop than that of conventional synthetic fibrous media. It does this by utilizing nanofiber technology to create millions of microscopic pores while maintaining a very durable and easy to work filter media. As a result, H&V's NANOWEB media offers an average of 40% higher porosity for a given micron rating when compared to standard product offerings.
