Oil Absorption Insert
For processes requiring oil removal from a liquid stream, Allied Filter Systems has introduced the new Oil Absorption Insert.
The insert is simply positioned within a standard filter bag, which can be any single layered type selected in accordance with the particle retention needs of the process. Use of the insert requires no modification to the baskets of standard filter housings. The insert is available in size 1 or 2, and has a 100% polypropylene construction.
Oil Absorption Brochure
It features a perforated central core to ensure that the liquid flow is split equally through the insert, and contains 0.38Kg (size 1) or 0.75Kg (size 2) of oil absorbent ‘spaghetti’ filter media.
The size 1 insert can absorb over 5 litres of oil, and over 10 litres for the size 2 insert. The ‘spaghetti’ media has a large surface area, so as well as providing a substantial oil absorption capacity, an excellent dirt holding capacity can also be achieved.
To optimise performance, we also provide a stainless steel 316L deflector plate, which features a nozzle to channel the process fluid into the central core of the insert.
Standard Filter Bags
Allied Filter Systems Ltd manufactures high quality liquid filter bags to fit standard size filter vessels, as well as custom designed products where requested. The constituent materials have been chosen for their purity, consistent high quality and repeatable performance. Filter bags are available in traditional stitched form or with a fully welded construction, and are fitted with a comprehensive choice of rings.
Sewn Needlefelt Filter Bags
Needlefelts are a versatile and cost effective media providing a high solid holding capacity for both non-deformable and deformable, gelatinous particles. By means of a depth filtration mechanism, particles penetrate and are captured throughout the depth of the filter media.
Fully Welded Filter Bags
All seams are welded rather than sewn, and combined with our positive sealing moulded Welseal (polypropylene or polyester) welded ring, no process liquid can bypass through needleholes caused by the sewing process or around a traditional metal ring. The Welseal ring forms a 360o hermetic seal between the filter bag and housing, ensuring that fully welded filter bags perform to a higher efficiency than a sewn equivalent.
