With its unique physical properties, Artrec PTFE Dust Collector Filters are able to high perform than  all other filter constructions in many applications. Among its many useful properties, PTFE is hydrophobic meaning it repels water. Additionally, it has a very low coefficient of friction meaning substances have a hard time sticking to it and is easily removed and has a high melting point. Stricter governmental regulations for particulate emission are on the horizon. The new standard for particulate matter emissions will present additional challenges for facilities to reach compliance. Artrec Dust Filters can reach amazing efficiencies when operated deployed correctly and easily reach sub-micron filtration ranges. In some applications efficiencies are high enough to allow for the recirculation of treated air back into the facility and promote an environmentally friendly operation, and saves on heating costs.
Many industries need clean process air. Artrec manufactures the full line of original and replacement dust collector filter cartridges, bags and tubes to meet the dust collection needs. Our dust collector filter elements provide exceptional performance and configure in all styles, medias, end cap configuration with cellulose, polyester, stainless steel materials. Artrec media meets your specific needs with original or high-quality replacement filters in long filter life and lower costs.
Polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) filters are used in cylindrical metals as pleated depending on the different purposes of use.
They are favored in many sectors as they are economical in the long term and long-lasting when compared with other filtration materials. They are commonly used in electrostatic spraying booths, sanding facilities and other industrial factories.

-    Provide high-efficiency filtration.
-    Possess maximum dirt holding capacity.
-    Double sided surface protection and impermeable polyurethane seals are used.
-    Custom production is available for special customer needs.
Artrec filters also have a distinct advantage over non-membrane filters due to differences in the way they filter out particulate. Non-PTFE membrane filter bags employ depth filtration to filter particulate. Depth filtration is accomplished when a layer of dust cake forms on the outside of the filter, and an accumulation of dust particles are deposited in the depth of the filter. In coming particles are captured as they follow the tortuous path through the dust cake, and depth of the filter. As time goes on, more and more particles get trapped within the filter, leading to higher pressure drops and eventually filter “blinding” which reduces filter life.
