The company succeeded in the commercialization of power plant and heavy vehicles air filters that contain nanofibers after an experimental phase. It also acquired temporary NanoScale Certificate for the production of automobile air filters.
Air filter is a device that prevents high maintenance cost and reduces fuel consumption by eliminating suspended particles in the air in the inlet of turbine or engine. Despite its cheap price, air filter has a very high efficiency.
The pores in the filter paper are thousands of times smaller in air filters produced by Behran Filter Co. due to the use of nanofiber technology. Therefore, the tiny particles in the air are trapped in these filters and the air in the inlet of the turbine or engine is free from any harmful substances.
While used turbines have lower energy efficiency and used engines consume more fuel, the application of these filters protects turbines and engines and it reduces fuel consumption in comparison with normal conditions.
In fact, nanotechnology filters made by Behran Filter Company provide ideal conditions that cannot be obtained by using technologies used in normal filters.
Power plant air filters produced by Behran Filter Company by using nanofiber technology have applications in various types of gas turbines and turbo-compressors used in power plant, oil, gas, and petrochemical industries.
The efficiency of nanotechnology filters made by Behran Filter Company is 4 times higher than the normal filters in the market in the separation of suspended particles from air.
Air filters for heavy vehicles and automobiles produced by using nanofiber technology in Behran Filter Company have applications in various types of Iranian or foreign vehicles, and they improve the separation of suspended particles from air up to at least 3 times.
These filters have a long lifetime at least 5.1 times greater than the normal filters in the market. Decreasing the depreciation of turbine and engine and increasing energy efficiency in comparison with normal filters are among other advantages of this product.
Power plant and heavy vehicles filters produced by using nanofiber technology in Behran Filter Company are the first products to obtain NanoScale Certificate from Iran Nanotechnology Initiative Council. Air filter for automobiles also has acquired this certificate.
It must be pointed out that the filter paper has been coated with nanofibers, and filters produced by using nanofiber technology in Behran Filter Company have been tested in reliable European laboratories in order to approve quality.
VTT Laboratory in Finland, DMT Laboratory in Germany, laboratory of Ahlstrom Company in Italy, and FIATEC Laboratory in Germany are among the most reliable laboratories all over the world that have confirmed the quality of nanotechnology filters produced by Behran Filter Company.
Behran Filter Knowledge-based Company was established in 1992 by producing 20 products, and this company produces more than 800 products at present.
Products of this company are produced under the ultimate supervision of Iran Standard Organization to be in accordance with ISIRI 34 and ISIRI 2525 standards.
Behran Filter Company is the first Iranian filter producing company that has acquired certificates in accordance with ISO 9001, ISO/TS 16949, and ISO/TS 29001.
According to the authorities of Behran Filter Company, the strategy of this company has always been to use the latest technologies in the production of products. Therefore, the company has localized nanofiber technology to be used in filters, and it succeeded in the production of air filters by using this technology for the first time in Iran.
It must be pointed out that air filters produced by using nanofiber technology in Behran Filter Company was announced as a chosen product by Iran Nanotechnology Initiative Council, Science and Technology Deputyship of the Presidential Office only two years after the presentation to the market in 2014.
