Many industrial field require filter media for the solid-liquid separation (such as waste water treatment or recovery of active principles in pharmaceutical industry). The filter media, act as suitable physical barriers for the particles in the liquid suspension (at a certain pressure gradient). The fiber choice of the filter media is strictly linked to the technical requirements of the application and of the process itself: the resistance to the chemical environment is the main constraint.
