Choosing The Right Medium For Your Filtration Needs

There are a variety of options when choosing industrial filtration systems. Different implementations are designed to suit particular needs of each industry and each user individually. Filter presses, walnut shell filters, cartridge filters and bag filters are all excellent in their respective uses. Here is a quick guide to deciding the direction that you need to look when deciding on industrial filtration systems.

Filter presses are designed to remove water from the solids, where typically industrial water treatment equipment is made to do just the opposite. Filter presses are ideal for any filtration application where a substantial amount of material needs to be removed so that the more conventional filtration method can then be applied. A filter press operates by using pressurized air or a water-filled diaphragm on a slurry mixture which pushes out the water. The remaining “filter cake” is then either disposed of, or further processed.

A bed filter uses a bed of filter material to remove contaminants. Material is gathered through the bed by taking a tortuous path, allowing large amounts of material to be collected before the filter plugs. A backwash cycle initiated once the medium is saturated with contaminants. The bed is fluidized, and waste is removed. The reuse of the filtration medium significantly decreases waste associated with the process.

Another option for your industrial filtration systems are cartridge filters. These are disposable and replaceable self-contained filtration units. They are made of a central perforated core that is wrapped in layers of filtration material. Inlet water is pumped through the filter core and passes through the walls of the filter. The contaminants are filtered through the depth of the filter cartridge. These are typically used in applications where high purity water is absolutely required. There is a wide range of treatment solutions available, and we can help you find the right fit for your particular need.

Reduce Operating Costs With Removable Bag Filtration Systems

Bag filters have been used as an industrial water filtration solution in many applications such as cooling tower water, injection water, biodiesel production, coolant filtration, remediation sites, and RO protection. Depending on your needs a Filtra-Systems professional can assist you, and help you find the right bag filter and bag filter housing in order to optimize water cleanliness. Bag filters and bag filter housings are able to remove solid waste materials from wastewater in an effective and eco-friendly manner. Bag filters are an easy and efficient option because they are low-cost and easy to use. Filtra-Systems takes pride in our bag filter housings and we use our own bag filters in our other filtration systems, which gives us both the technical and commercial experience to identify what filtration solution will be best for your needs.

Regardless of your industry and why you need to clean your water, bag filters can be used to solve your problems. In the brewing industry, bag filters are used to clean water at the start of the process. They also remove proteins from slowing the fermentation process and any unwanted solids prior to bottling. The brewing process requires different bags, as tighter bags are used towards the end of the process to remove the fine particulate. In the mining and chemical industry, bag filters are used to filter particulate. They are usually stainless steel, and frequently carry an ASME stamp. The food and beverage production industry takes advantage of industrial bag filters because of the low cost and outstanding reliability. To remove contaminants from water, bag filters are used along with other purification methods. It is clear that bag filter and filter housing options from Filtra-Systems can be a solution to a variety of needs.

Selecting The Right Bag Filter Media

When it comes to selecting the right bag and cartridge filter media, there are a few options to fit your needs. Nylon bags are mostly used to filter solvent, and in other applications where porous filters are needed. Nylon monofilament mesh filter bags are welded with nylon monofilament plain weave fabric. This nylon mesh filter material provides a fixed aperture and constant filtration efficiency. There are a variety of pore sizes available, between 100 and 425 micron.

If you are looking for extraordinary adsorption properties for organic chemical compounds, activated carbon filter bags would be your best bet. Typically, these bag and cartridge filters are used for removal of trace amounts of organics, color, or odors from hazardous waste water streams.

The most economical filter material are the needle felt filter bags. They are made from the most cost effective disposable filter material available. These are often used for low and medium viscosity liquids. There is a wide variety of filter ratings available, and materials offered are polypropylene and polyester.

If you need to remove oil and other impurities from water or wastewater in industrial applications, our high-efficiency oil absorption filter bags may be for you. They are made from melt-blown polypropylene fiber, which has a large oil-absorbing filter area, and excellent absorption capability. Additionally, it is acid proof, alkaline proof, and resistant to tearing. These efficient oil bag filters have multiple layers, which gives them over 90% removal efficiency, and a high oil holding capacity.

Improving Operating Efficiency With The Verti-Press Tower Filter Press

Our Verti-Press Tower Filter Press is one of our most effective products for dewatering chemicals and industrial minerals. It is a dewatering filter used by some of the biggest names in the business, including Kodak and Dofasco. By using vertically stacked columns, the Verti-Press can produce dry, solid cakes and a high wash efficiency with a minimal footprint.

The Verti-Press uses a diaphragm to mechanically squeeze the mother liquor from solid cakes. After the liquor is pressed out, what remains are dry cakes that may consist of up to 94% solids. Many manufacturing and processing plants require a specified dryness in their processes. With the Verti-Press, you’ll be able to meet your requirements every time.

Combining both high-speed cycling with full automation, the Verti-Press has a very high solids output. Because of its design, this dewatering filter can cycle in as little as five minutes, maximizing efficiency within your manufacturing plant.
