Filtration Foam Applications

Reilly Foam Corporation specializes in engineered foams and has done for over four decades. Among our many products is a range of filtration foams fabricated in-house using cutting-edge technologies. Our customers in the consumer, medical, and industrial sectors trust us to manufacture goods for a vast number of filtration foam applications

What Are Filtration Foam Applications?

Examples of such applications include:

  • Air filtration
  • Air conditioning filters
  • Fish tank and pond filters
  • Gas and steam filtration
  • Humidification belts
  • Metered fluid control
  • Odor eliminating filters
  • Small engine filters
  • Water purifying

Whatever filtration foam applications a customer has, we’re committed to delivering the utmost quality. Our foam is expertly manufactured with precise detail and unsurpassed care to ensure exceptional quality.

Types of Filtration Foam Applications

At Reilly Foam Corporation, we manufacture over a dozen different foam materials. Several of these are suited to filtration foam applications. However, it’s our specialty reticulated foam that’s the most effective. That’s because the reticulation process removes specified quantities of the material’s cell membranes.

The result is a lattice-like appearance. This lattice-like finish makes specialty reticulated foam effective in filtering air, water, and other fluids. Reticulation is a post-treatment process that Reilly Foam Corporation has refined over many years in business. Our methods ensure a perfectly porous finished material, creating a better-than-ever filter or metering media.

Specialty reticulated foam is available alongside our ever-growing selection of other foam types. These include cellulose, compressed, minicell, rubber, and pre-polymer foams. The top uses of just some of these foams range from pillows and mattresses to insulation, medical padding, pet beds, and yoga mats.

Reticulated Polyurethane Foam

Specialty reticulated foam is a variety of polyurethane foam – a Reilly Foam Corporation forte. Polyurethane materials are incredibly versatile. Thanks in no small part to their flexibility, they’re widely used across the U.S. and around the world.

Just one of their many uses is filtration foam applications. Elsewhere, our customers use our polyurethane foam in everything from seat cushions to computer packaging for safe shipping. Whether used for cushioning, packaging, or filtration, the material’s versatility continues to contribute toward massive ongoing growth in the polyurethane foam market.

Medical-Grade Filtration Foam

Our foam products aren’t just used for air, engine, and water filtration. They’re also used to fabricate various essential components for medical devices. The most common material in such instances is polyurethane foam – reticulated or otherwise. That’s because polyurethane foam boasts several significant benefits ranging from simple flexibility to all-important biocompatibility.

That’s why it’s now among the most crucial elements in manufacturing a multitude of medical devices. A great example is blood filtration systems used to collect blood and plasma. Doctors and nurses also use the same devices to administer life-saving transfusions to patients. This use case is a fantastic testament to just one of the many filtration foam applications for which our customers rely on Reilly Foam Corporation.

In medicine, medical-grade polyurethane foam is further central to molded devices like neck braces. Other uses include electrocardiogram pads and wound care materials. In terms of wound care, almost nothing beats polyurethane foam. That’s thanks to its absorbent nature and natural resistance to bacteria.

Filtration Foam Application Options

Reilly Foam Corporation’s range of products is ideally suited to a plethora of applications. In addition to reticulated polyurethane foam for filtration and other uses within medicine, our products are used in industries from A to Z. To demonstrate, our polyurethane foam alone is further employed in aviation materials, boats and surfboards, buildings and sculptures, and cleaning products.

That’s alongside concrete repair, plant substrates, recording studios… and the list goes on. The same things that make our specialty reticulated polyurethane foam perfect for filtration also see it excel in numerous other areas. Take recording studios, for example. In a recording studio, polyurethane foam excels not in filtering air or water but in filtering noise.

In such environments, as little background noise as possible is crucial. That’s why polyurethane foam is used when constructing or renovating recording studios. Polyurethane foam is supremely effective at deadening noise and filtering out unwanted sound. It’s also further beneficial thanks to its secondary acoustic, insulation, and other properties.

Eco Friendly Policy

Our goal at Reilly Foam is to recycle anything and everything that is not fabricated so it can go on to have a second life elsewhere. 100% of our scrap materials are collected and bailed together. We then send our scrap materials out, either back to our suppliers or to other companies that will take them to use in recycled products!
