Title (EN) NONWOVEN FILTER AND METHOD OF MANUFACTURE
(FR) FILTRE NON TISSE ET PROCEDE DE FABRICATION
Abstract:
(EN) A filter useful as a cigarette smoke filter is made by convergingly passing a flat restrained meltblown web successively through a heated zone (36) and a trumpet (24) to form a roving (25). The roving may be processed to make filters. The process results in stretch orientation of longitudinal fibers and bulking due to cross fibers. Primary and secondary pleats formed in the web are bundled into a cylindrical roving. The pleats add bulking to the web and provide fluid permeability through the filter.
(FR) La fabrication d'un filtre utilisé comme filtre de fumée de cigarette consiste à faire passer de manière convergente une bande serrée plane dilatée par fusion successivement dans une zone chauffée (36) et une trompette (24) afin de former une mèche (25). On peut traiter la mèche afin de fabriquer des filtres. Le procédé a pour résultat une orientation d'allongement de fibres longitudinales ainsi qu'un gonflement dû à des fibres transversales. Des plis primaires et secondaires formés dans la bande sont mis en paquet dans une mèche cylindrique. Les plis ajoutent du volume à la bande et ils permettent d'obtenir une perméabilité au fluide à travers le filtre.
