Mühlen Sohn presents innovative products made of fabrics at the Aluminium trade fair 2012

Manifacturing Fluitex Fabrics

Blaustein, 14th August 2012.

The company Mühlen Sohn GmbH & Co. KG, a global acting manufacturer of technical fabrics, shows its product highlights at the Aluminium trade fair in Düsseldorf. From 9th to 11th October the visitors can get to know what is called fluidizing fabrics at booth 10F17 and assure themselves by the advantages of these fluidizing fabrics.



“Our airslide fabrics Fluitex® can be used in many applications. The reason for this is simple. The outstanding conveyance characteristics decrease the demand for energy and thus increase the cost-effectiveness of the production compared to other techniques”, declares Karin Albrecht, Sales Manager of Mühlen Sohn.


The fields of applilcations range from the aluminum industry to the cement industry. The fluidizing fabrics are used within the primary process, particularly for the conveyance and storage of alumina (clay). The grain size of the powder and the high temperatures during the production process are challenging for the fabric. Fluitex@-fabrics enable a trouble-free, efficient and constant massflow, even under contrarious conditions.


The fabrics are used particularly in pneumatic conveying systems and in alumina silos in which there is a need of temperature resistance as well as even disaggregation of the bulk material. The company presents all of the three product variants at the trade fair: fabrics made of Polyester fibres, of Para-Aramid fibres and Meta-Aramid fibres.


Long life time and temperature resistant


The classic made of Polyester features a smooth surface and thus provides effective protections against abrasion. A high temperature resistant fluidizing fabric is made of the Para-Aramid fibres. It resists temperatures up to 250° Celsius without any problems. For short periods temperatures can rise up to 350° C without damaging the fabrics.


Meta-Aramid fibres feature similar characteristics and additionally are most resistant to acids and lyes.


All of the types of fabric satisfy by outstanding quality and a long life time. The special weaving technology of Mühlen Sohn guarantees a constant air permeability and reliable dimensional stability. Furthermore the fabrics are characterized by a excellent self-cleaning effect of the pores and surface.



25.000 international trade and business professionals


The Aluminium trade fair 2012 is expecting 25.000 international trade and business professionals and thus is a meeting place for manufacturers and processors of aluminium, providers of end products and surface treatment as well as manufacturers of equipment for machines, plants and component parts for the production, finishing and refinement of goods made of aluminium.

On 9th and 10th October, Sales Manager of Mühlen Sohn, Karin Albrecht is local in Düsseldorf and will be available for interviews by journalists according to prior agreement.
