High Efficiency Baghouse Filters
AFF manufactures all styles of replacement baghouse filters from a selection of fabrics suited to address specific applications. Scrim-supported felts offer added strength and durability so the filters can withstand abrasive dust and frequent cleaning to extend the life of the bag, while providing fine particle separation and excellent dust release properties. AFF can cross-reference most filters or duplicate your sample to provide an exact match. American Fabric Filter Co., Wesley Chapel, FL 800-367-3591 www.americanfabricfilter.com

Independent Film Carriage
A true partner for the Octopus line of stretch wrapping machines, the SideKick is a second carriage that can be added to almost any new or existing Octopus machine. The SideKick operates as an independent film carriage that will automatically rotate into primary wrapping position upon the film being depleted or breaking. This automated feature eliminates one of the biggest sources of downtime - waiting for the operator to respond after a film issue. Because the Octopus can now run two rolls of film before needing attention, the operator only needs to address the machine half as often, freeing up time to manage other tasks. The SideKick is easy to maintain, as it does not require an additional cut, clamp, or heat seal system. ITW Muller, Arlington Heights, IL 800-628-6787 www.itwmuller.com

Suitable for most straightforward powder wet-out applications up to 50,000 cP, dispersers are supplied with heavy-duty precision bearings and drive assembly, high-quality stainless steel wetted parts and shaft guard, as well as an air/oil hydraulic lift with controls.
