Micronics Engineered Filtration Group (MEFG) introduced MINE-XLL Filter Cloth, which offers a long life and decreased frequency of filter cloth change-outs. The cloth achieves a lifetime three times that of traditional polypropylene felted mining cloths, the group reported.

Other benefits include better cake release, greater mechanical resistance, less fabric binding, lower cake moistures, and more machine uptime. In field tests, the cloth reduced cake moisture by 2.6%, the group reported.

MINE-XLL can be manufactured to fit all OEM brands of mine filter presses, MEFG reported.
