In recent years, the filtration and separation industries have shown interest in nanofiber-based filter media because it helps fulfill the low resistance and high efficiency filter system requirements. However, nanofiber media’s major restraint has been lower production rates offered by traditional production technologies.
Fortunately, Forcespinning™ is a technology that can solve these issues and allow filtration and separation companies to experience the benefits of nanofiber-based filter media. Forcespinning applies centrifugal force to convert diverse types of polymers into nanofibers. This “green” technology also dramatically reduces or eliminates the use of hazardous solvents.
Many companies in the filtration and separation industry will attend the AFS 2012 Annual Conference, which will take place on June 4-7. Yogesh Ner, Ph.D., a Senior Application Engineer at FibeRio Technology Corporation will be presenting “Filtration Properties of Forcespun Nanofibers” in the Air Filtration Session on Nano-Filtration.
Dr. Ner will outline advances in nanofiber filtration properties through the use of Forcespinning technology, its potential production efficiency and “green” benefits.
Air Filtration Session: Nano-Filtration
Time: 11:25 a.m.
Venue: Embassy Suites Boca Raton in Boca Raton, Florida
Next Wednesday is a great opportunity to see a technical presentation describing how Forcespinning™ Nanofibers is providing the nonwovens and textiles industries with new cost-effective capabilities in nanofiber technology.
Bharath Raghavan Ph.D., a Materials Engineer at FibeRio Technology Corporation will be presenting “Forcespinning: An Important Advancement in Nanofibers Production” at the NET, Inc. Conference hosted by TAPPI.
The presentation will be given in:
Date : September 14, 2011 (Wednesday)
Session 4: Nanofibers
Time : 8:30 – 10:00 am
Hyatt Regency – Atlanta, Ga.
Please stop by or inform those in your company who will be attending.

Ronald Larson Ph.D. Brings Advanced Modeling Capabilities to FibeRio Team
June 06, 2011 | McAllen, TX – FibeRio Technology Corporation – The Force For Nanofibers – is welcoming its newest member to the Technical Advisory Board – Ron Larson Ph.D. Dr. Larson brings a wealth of knowledge and experience in the field of Rheology to FibeRio as the company provides the nonwovens and textiles markets with the most versatile and cost effective nanofiber production equipment enabled by Forcespinning™ Technology.
Before joining the University of Michigan in the GG Brown Professorship of Chemical Engineering, Dr. Larson spent seventeen years at Bell Laboratories in New Jersey. He has previously served as the President of the Society of Rheology and the Chair of the Chemical Engineering Department at the University of Michigan. Dr. Larson is also a Fellow of the American Physical Society and sits on the Fluid Mechanics Programming Committee of the American Institute for Chemical Engineers. His awards include the Bingham Medal from the Society of Rheology and the Alpha Chi Sigma Award from AICHE.
“FibeRio is proud to continue our tradition of working with the foremost experts in the world to ensure that the full potential of Forcespinning™ technology is delivered to the nonwovens, textiles, filtration and biomedical industries in the form of the most versatile and cost effective nanofiber production equipment possible” said FibeRio CEO Ellery Buchanan. He went on to say that, “Dr. Larson’s credentials, knowledge and character are consistent with the world-class Technical Advisory Board that FibeRio has formed to guide the future of nanofiber production with Forcespinning™ technology.
Forcespinning™ is an award winning technology that utilizes centrifugal force to produce nanofibers from a wide variety of base materials using both melt and solution based processes.
FibeRio provides both laboratory and industrial scale nanofiber production equipment. FibeRio’s Cyclone™ L-1000 Series is the most versatile nanofiber research system available and delivers Forcespinning™ Technology to your laboratory. The company plans to launch its first continuous process light production systems later this year.
