Filtration is the easiest way to remove solids from water. Virtually any contaminant can be removed from any liquid.
The need for filtration usually begins with a problem. A solid/particle contaminant prevents a liquid system from achieving optimum performance. It may be particle accumulation in a pit or sump. It may be contamination that causes premature disposal of the liquid in the system.
Yes, the problem can be managed with a basic filter. But is that the best solution? Choosing a filter for its particle removal performance alone will not solve the entire problem.
In order to achieve the complete filtration solution, a company must consider how the solids will be handled once they are
captured by the filter and removed from the liquid.
The proper filter type is determined by the desired level of solids removal or water quality. The proper filter size is determined by flow rate and the amount, size, and type of solids to be removed. Most filters are available in varying automation levels and price ranges.
However, before selecting a filter, a company should:
- Determine the required level of filtration or filtered water quality
- Decide whether filtrate will be disposed of or reused
- Identify how much space is available for the system
- Calculate the amount of capital available to purchase, operate and maintain the system
- Decide whether the system should be automatic or manual
- Consider any pertinent water conservation requirements.
We can guide you through this process and recommend the proper filtration system for your application. We offer a vast array of products, utilizing the most current technology, to fit your needs.
By reducing process fluid stream contamination, you may be able to enhance product quality, improve process efficiency, and increase the working life of fluids and related equipment.
Considering the increasingly high cost of maintenance, manpower, downtime and lost productivity, a complete filtration solution is essential. Today’s industries employ a wide range of filtration systems for varying problems, and filtration technology continuously pushes forward to meet the challenges of improved products, new intermediate step formulation requirements, and novel manufacturing techniques.
