Glosfume provides intelligent Hot Gas Ceramic Filtration.

Internationally recognised for our specialist skill in providing the very best in hot gas ceramic filtration.

Glosfume are the only company to manufacture both ceramic elements and filter bodies offering a two year guarantee covering both parts and labour* 

Advantage of manufacturing our own ceramic and soluble elements enables us to offer higher specification filters at competitive prices.

Our standard Ceramic Filter bodies operate at up to 450°C, elements can withstand temperatures of above 1000°C which remove inert sub micron particles from a wide range of gaseous emissions.

Typical applications:

  • Foundries.
  • Product recovery.
  • Incineration (W.I.D. compliant).
  • Biomass wood fired boilers.
  • Renewable energy.
  • Acid recovery.
  • Production of nano materials.
  • Gasification.

Our guarantee: To reduce particulate emission levels to below 3mg/Nm3 (typically 1).

Glosfume also provide: Dry scrubbing for the removal of acid gas and other pollutants. This system injects Sodium Bicarbonate, Activated Carbon and Urea, achieving the following emission levels:

Glosfume's commitment to: Renewable Energy and Biomass Wood Fired Boilers.

In a modern society, many offices, hospitals and homes are reliant on unsustainable and environmentally damaging fossil fuels, polluting air and releasing noxious and harmful gasses.

Both the UK’s Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (DEFRA) and the Office of the Gas and Electricity Markets (OFGEM) understand this issue and have put stricter laws on the levels of pollution and emissions that can be emitted.

Adrian Walker M.D. of HOVAL Ltd was one of the first to identify the efficiency of Glosfume’s biomass wood fired filters and has developed a very close working relationship with Glosfume.

This has been further endorsed by British Gas who have now invested in Econergy Ltd. Econergy are a leading company in biomass wood fired boiler technology and Glosfume is the preferred partner.

Unfortunately Biomass Wood Fired Boilers produce high levels of pollution, which means without the use of high efficiency filtration very few will meet the latest or future RHI requirements.

Glosfume Ceramic Filters reduce biomass wood fired boiler emissions to below 3g/GJ which is between the emission level of an oil fired boiler and a gas boiler.

Glosfume ceramic filters enable Biomass Wood Fired Boilers to meet the RHI legislation and allows Biomass Wood Fired Boilers to be used in areas of poor air quality, including Air Quality Management Areas.

Glosfume has over 500 installations in more than 30 countries, founded in 1990, Glosfume design, build and install complete ceramic filtration systems.

During 2009 Glosfume became one of the first ceramic filtration companies to manufacture both ceramic filtration media and filter bodies, including pressure vessels which comply EN286 certified by Lloyd's.

Glosfume make a point of completely understanding our customers' process and control systems. We have the facilities, technology and people who can programm PLC panels which talk to your PLC systems.

The success of our company is reflected in the number of people we now employ, all of whom have an excellent understanding of hot gas filtration.

Without this well established team of people led by Jon Luckett and Nigel Black, Glosfume would not have achieved its industry leading position of today.

Our customer base includes major international organisations such as Elf Oils, Inco, Pechiney, Alcan, W.S. Atkins, British Navy, French Nuclear Fuels, Total Oils and more recently Umicore.

During the 22 years of business we believe we have seen and covered more applications than any other ceramic filtration company and many of our customers have more than one Glosfume filter.
