Frost & Sullivan Recognizes Purafil For Its Highly Successful Product Line Strategy With Its Gas-Phase Air Filtration Products

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., July 31, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Based on its recent analysis of the gas-phase air filtration market, Frost & Sullivan recognizes Purafil, Inc., a division of Kaydon Corporation (NYSE: KDN), with the 2012 Global Frost & Sullivan Award for Product Line Strategy. Purafil is a powerful brand name with an innovative technology and a leading global position in the mature and saturated gas-phase air filtration market. The company's unrivaled ability to meet and exceed customer needs has resulted in a number of successful installations across multiple markets.

In the early 1960s the Purafil pellet revolutionized the gas-phase air filtration market. This was the world's first potassium permanganate air cleaning pellet (referred to as media) used for controlling corrosion in industrial facilities.  Since then Purafil, Inc has created numerous air cleaning products to remove odors, improve indoor air quality and scrub toxic gases. The company was also the first to pioneer an Underwriters Laboratories, Inc. (UL) Classified synthesized carbon media capable of neutralizing corrosive airborne pollutants.

The company's sound product line strategy for its comprehensive and innovative air filtration media has enabled it to maintain a leading position in the increasingly competitive gas-phase air filtration market. Its main strategies have been new product innovation, product line expansion, and customer satisfaction.

"Purafil's success can be attributed to its innovative air filtration media and its understanding of customer applications," said Frost & Sullivan Industry Analyst Eric Meliton. "The company, which has a history of being the first to innovate market-changing products and diversifying its product line, continues to constantly seek new venues for its acclaimed products."

Technologically, Purafil covers a wide range of products and treatment options, including media, filters, modules, corrosion monitoring and assessment tools, as well as laboratory and technical services. Serving diverse markets such as industrial, high-purity, mission-critical facilities (data centers and server rooms), commercial, municipal, power generation, healthcare, and preservation, Purafil has no competitor in terms of the width of its addressable markets.
