A world leading, innovative formulations and manufacturing company making products that provide effective solutions to many issues in the amenity, sports turf, agricultural, horticultural and forestry markets.
A high quality manufacturer with a long established history of expertise in formulation chemistry. Quality control is an essential aspect of processing and integral to this is a fully equipped research and development laboratory and a quality assurance laboratory with HPLC analytical equipment. This is underlined by ISO 9001:2015 accreditation and the added assurance that programmes are overseen and managed by highly qualified scientists.
In 2015 AmegA Sciences was purchased by ICL, a global powerhouse for fertilisers and speciality chemicals with production activities globally with a worldwide marketing and logistics network. Since AmegA Sciences was acquired by ICL there has been a significant investment in the facilities and equipment including a plant expansion
AmegA Sciences were looking for Fileder’s support with filtering blended products prior to packaging from their filling machines. One particular issue they faced was an impurity in a liquid fertiliser product which had precipitated out and sunk to the bottom of their IBC’s.
Fileder visited AmegA, completed a full site survey and recommended that they build a mobile rig containing our 50µm SPECTRUM Polypropylene (BP-420-50) and 10µm SPECTRUM Polypropylene (BP-420-10) bag filters, housed in PENTAIR Polypropylene Bag Housings (PBH-420-1.5). The SPECTRUM bag filters provide a simple and economic solution for particulate removal whilst maximising the filtration surface area. PENTAIR Polypropylene Bag Housings are a compact, economic and versatile solution for housing the filters. As a result of Fileder’s solution, the impurity was completely removed and AmegA have continued to produce without issue.
In addition, to support AmegA with the filtration of a higher end product that required to meet stringent standards, Fileder recommended 1µm SPECTRUM Premier Polypropylene Bag filters (PBP-1-2). The very high efficiency provided by this particular bag filter ensures high levels of contaminant removal combined with high dirt holding. Exactly what was required for this application.
