Superior Felt & Filtration LLC, a sub-component filter manufacturer for disposable surgical hood, N95 mask component, BFE/VFE, and ventilator filter applications, has tripled capacity over the last 2 months and will be expanding to meet global needs for PPE and medical filtration. Superior Felt & Filtration utilizes Technostat electrostatic filter media from Hollingsworth & Vose and has partnered with Honeywell, GM, Ventec, and Philips in the fight against COVID-19.
To meet the growing need for PPE and filtration for first responders and hospitals, Superior Felt & Filtration is expanding its operations to include new facilities and highly advanced manufacturing equipment. It has recently invested in five new pieces of manufacturing equipment that will allow more capacity for media collating and slitting as well as the manufacturing of sub-component filters and other nonwoven technology. And in June 2020, Superior Felt & Filtration will expand into an additional 75,000-sq-ft control room facility.
With a collaborative research and development team, Superior Felt & Filtration is contributing to more efficient and versatile designs to meet the needs of an ever-expanding filtration market.
Said Frank Porto, director of sales, in a news release: “We are incredibly proud of our dedicated employees at Superior Felt & Filtration LLC, who have been working tirelessly day and night to fight this pandemic. We can all take pride that our hard work and sacrifices are saving lives on a global scale.”
