Testori opens up a range of fabric solutions to NA market

Testori USA Inc, the only company in the U.S. to stock European felt for immediate shipment, has expanded their line of fabrics to include four new felts and one new felt width. After the official opening of the warehouse in June, 2011, with eight fabrics, the company has had to continuously add new specialty Testori fabrics to meet the increased demand from filter bag converters to address their customers operating issues.

In addition to the original felts, the Cincinnati, Ohio, warehouse now regularly stocks:

T 555 SA - A standard denier, scrim supported polyester. This general purpose material is for applications where a scrim supported felt is required.

T 557 Glazed microfelt - A special high efficiency polyester felt with a smooth surface for improved cake release. Used in applications where there are a high percentage of fine particles.

A second width of T 552 KL (82.67") - Appropriate for applications where the wider width is not required. The smart choice for situations where sticky, agglomerating wet, fatty or oily dusts dust prevent good cake release and cause pressure drop problems.

TW 550 Singed and Glazed - Two finish options for the static dissipating polyester felt. Singed surface and glazed surface finish selections depending on dust characteristics. Often used where static build up is a potential safety or cake release problem.

T 558 Singed Dual Density - The original specification true dual density design with scrim support, fine denier fibers on the cake side, coarser fibers on the back side. Often used in areas where slightly higher efficiency than standard denier fiber felt is required, such as the steel and minerals industries.

"The Testori USA vision was to supply European concept niche and specialty fabrics and felts to the dust bag and liquid filter cloth fabricators. As the only manufacturer doing this, we are uniquely positioned to provide not only rapid shipping, but also technical support, recommendations and training. We are pleased to be the company changing the face of an industry long known for its commodity approach to sales." Clint Scoble, President and Managing Director, Testori USA, Inc.

Convenience is the key with this innovative approach to fabric sales. The centrally located warehouse, within close proximity to the majority of U.S. and Canadian filter dust collector bag converters, provides quality European filter media to the U.S. filtration market quickly in a cost-effective manner.

Filter bag converter companies can eliminate the hassle of importing, shipping and brokerage. Less than Container Load (LCL) shipping costs are minimized reducing the penalties for small and mid-sized shipments. And smaller lots of specialty fabrics can be purchased, opening up a range of fabric solutions to the North American market to easily provide their customers with Testori's specialty felts designed to address operating problems such as efficiency, poor cake release, blinding, and potential explosion hazards.
