The Ultrasonic Break-down Method for cleaning and refining of vegetable fibres

Advantages of the method and of industrial manufacturing:

1.     Continuous and economic production

2.     Environmentally sound method

3.     Established as add-on system, therefore:

  • Upscaling and extension of production facilities are no problem
  • Rebuilding, upgrading, or modernising of the production plant is quick and inexpensive
  • Changeover to other raw materials is swift and easy

4.   Directed manufacturing of different fibre types and qualities through choice of raw materials and variation of process parameters

5.   Unwanted fibre substances like glues, scents and pigments (which may inhibit setting of concrete) as well as contaminants like mineral dust, bacteria and spores, organic will be removed

6.   Sub-products like shives or filter sludge can serve as additional energy source for operating the plant

7.   Easy Assurance and controlling of quality compared to conventional methods

8.   Different fibre raw materials can be processed, including all levels of retting and orientation (parallel or disordered)

The ultrasonic method

Setralit Nfu


Raw material: The basic raw material of SETRALIT® - Fibre is a non-wood natural fibre which is generally called “vegetable fibre”. In many cases this is a bast fibre like hemp, flax, nettle, kenaf, jute, or ramie, but leaf fibres like sisal or musa textiles  ...

Ultrasonic treatment: The fibrous raw material is being exposed to an ultrasonic field in a watery medium for a time period between 10 and 120, usually 30 seconds. During this continuous  .... more

Fibers activities ECCO GROUP



In the last years ECCO has developed and continuously build up an additional business branch besides production and sales of high-performance lubricants: the production of industrial fibre basically made of renewable raw materials, favourably flax and hemp.

These fibers are alternatives for fibrous materials, as for example: Asbestos, Aramid, fiberglass or other synthetic fibers.There are other possible applications where no fibres at all have been used so far,...more
