When carefully considered, a liquid filtration system will offer many benefits such as:
- Minimising process downtime.
- Reduction and possibly elimination of waste disposal costs.
- Limiting employee exposure to any harmful process liquids.
- Maintenance reductions.
- Reducing manufacturing downtime.
- Product quality improvements.
Usually referred to as Mono, Spun, or Multi Filament filter elements. Liquid filtration filter sizing is usually relative to the gap in the “Mesh” (measured in microns).
Liquid Filter Mesh is simply a barrier made of connected strands of synthetic fibre, metal fibre, or other flexible / ductile materials.
Plastic mesh may be extruded, expanded, woven or tubular and usually made from nylon, polyethylene, PTFE, polypropylene or PVC.
There are also specific filter elements available for moisture separation of process oils / mists or high moisture conditions.
Liquid Bag filters generally have the lowest equipment investment costs, and are tolerant of a wide range of process conditions.
- Compressed Air Treatment / Moisture
- Sediment capture and Debris containment
- Chemicals, paint and pharmaceutical industries
- Process and Industrial filters
- Oil Separators / Water Separators
- Metalworking fluids / Mist / CNC’s
- Water Purification / Drinking Water Filters / Wastewater Treatment
- Upstream Protection of pumps, instruments, valves or dispensing devices
Filter Frames can be made using Plastic, Cardboard, Steel, Galvanised Steel, Aluminium or Stainless Steel.
There are many types of retaining rings / wire formations that can be used to suit the various liquids to be filtered and the filter housings.
