Arioso Membrane Composites

AriosoLogoR-78x224-1 copy.png

Arioso® high performance air filtration composite media is ideally suited for gas turbine air intakes, where end users value high efficiency filtration for reduced cleaning, less downtime, and maximum energy output. Suitable for pulsed and static applications, Arioso media delivers E10 to E12 efficiency at world class low resistance. Arioso composites’ resistance to oil and hydrocarbon loading provide longer filter life than other available membrane technologies.

Arioso media delivers extremely low pressure drop to high efficiency filters, allowing your customers to use less energy, and save money. And did we mention that Arioso media contains no fluoropolymers or halogens*, allowing for the potential of incineration or recycling?

Saving energy, saving money, and recycling. Now that’s our idea of green.

*Some features are dependent upon the functional support layer chosen.

Membrane Performance, Lydall Innovation & Flexibility

Arioso high performance air filtration composites incorporate Solupor® membranes, a proprietary UPE (ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene) membrane technology. These composite structures deliver high efficiency products with low resistance to air flow, tailored to individual application and processing needs.

Engineered from a chemically inert and highly durable polymer, the Solupor membrane is laminated to a support layer to form a composite that is mechanically robust. Numerous functional support layers and/or prefilter materials are available to tailor the composite structure to your individual processing and application requirements.

Arioso composite media is currently available in efficiencies from F9/MERV 15, up through H14.

Solupor Membrane Technology

At the heart of our Arioso membrane composites are our strong, microporous Solupor UPE membrane, which combines structural microfibers with internal nanofibers for excellent strength, high efficiency and low pressure-drop.

Solupor membranes are lightweight, high-performance membranes developed from many years of experience in micro-porous film technology development. Solupor membranes combine controlled pore-size distribution and air permeability with high filtration efficiency, chemical resistance and inertness.

Functional Support Layers

Arioso air filtration membrane composites benefit highly from the structural integrity inherent in Solupor membrane technology. This structure allows the selection of functional support layers based solely upon application and processing requirements.

Current support layers available are wet-laid glass or polyester, spunbond polyester or polypropylene, and needlefelts. Multiple thickness and stiffness options are available to tailor the composite to your application needs.
