FORTY YEARS OF FILTER DESIGN
BEC have been at the forefront of filter encapsulation for over four decades. In a company built and owned by engineers, we design with both toolmaking and injection moulding in mind. Blending the two allows us to see the bigger picture and create the best filtration solutions for our customers.
After manufacturing one of the first tumble dryer filters for Phillips in 1982, BEC were approached to design and encapsulate filters for Hotpoint, Creda and Kenwood to name a few. Fast forward to today and BEC filters are used across marine, bio-medical, automotive, transport, white goods, and hot beverage industries across the world.
INNOVATION IN FILTER ENCAPSULATION
Our decades of experience are invaluable in helping you develop new filters for specific applications. Our team are on hand to improve the effectiveness and affordability of your finished product to bring it to market as quickly as possible.
We’ve been privileged to work alongside forward-thinking buyers and R&D teams across the globe, helping innovators of new machinery and technology produce metal, mesh, gauze and plastic filtration units fit for purpose, every time.
Frequently Asked Questions
Yes, customers can bring in or send their part to the BEC site; our team will then use several techniques to 3D scan the object- collecting incredibly accurate measurements of every surface at lightning-fast speed. Once this data has been collected it can be pulled across into CAD software and altered, 3D printed, or used to create a mould tool.
Of course, feel free to call or email us and one of our team members will be happy to discuss how your parts are best made. We’ll gladly tell you about the pros and cons of injection moulding for your particular project.
Yes, our team can produce CAD drawings for your design with some help from you. A sketch of a design with measurements and details/applications will be a good starting point.
We can certainly help. Your material selection will depend on what is required for your part- flexibility, impact resistance, toughness and more. We will be happy to offer our opinion on what will work well.
Many of our customers (big and small) use NDA’s to ensure total privacy. We’ll be happy to enter into one with you.
Yes, get in touch and discuss the details of the filter and we'll be happy to help you with your design. We manufacture filters for tiny fuel particles and large debris alike, working with woven, non-woven and stainless steel meshes.
