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.
Allipure Series – High Efficiency Filter Bags
Allied Filter Systems Ltd has developed the Allipure series, a unique range of absolute rated filter bags rated from 5 to 0.6 micron, which perform to an efficiency of 99.98% (Beta 5000) at the stated micron rating. For processes requiring absolute and/or sub micron liquid process filtration, the use of filter cartridges has previously been the method of choice to achieve high performance in critical applications with consumable filter elements.
Extended Life Filter Bags
Increased thickness of the filter media compared to that of the equivalent standard felt filter bag enables an increased retention of particles. In addition, the extended life filter media has a graded density structure i.e. progressively smaller particles are captured as the fluid follows a tortuous path through the media, stopping the filter bag from blinding prematurely. The result is a filter media with a higher dirt holding capacity, leading to increased filter bag lifetime.
Filter Bag Accessories
Allied Filter Systems Ltd is able to supply a wide range of bag filter accessories to complement our range of filter housings and also those from other manufacturers. Restrainer baskets – Stainless steel 316L in all industry standard sizes and available in a variety of styles to fit all types of housings. Baskets can also be manufactured with a stainless steel mesh lining (37 to 840 micron) or produced from perforated sheet other than the standard 3mm, commonly 1mm to 10mm. Coated baskets (e.g. Halar) are also available.
