  • Expanding Reservoir Air Filters

    In all vented tanks, the rise and fall of fluid levels is offset by a corresponding volume of incoming and outgoing air. Keeping the incoming replacement air clean is essential for contamination control and thus the reliability of hydraulic systems. While targeting the system's reliability, JLM Systems Limited has developed the OilMiser™ Reservoir Aspirator (ORA) kit. This product represents a ...

  • Why choose an electrostatic, washable air filter?

    When deciding what type of air conditioner or furnace filter to use, you should keep two things in mind: Airflow and Efficiency. In order to work at its optimum level, the a/c or heating unit requires no restriction to air flow. You should choose a filter that has the least effect on airflow, but removes the most dust from the air. ACI’s electrostatic air filters allow the air conditioning ...

  • Filter Your Air with Cartridge Dust Collector

    A cartridge dust collector uses filtering cartridges and is a self-cleaning dust collector. The cartridges it uses are made from synthetic fibers and cellulose that is treated chemically. This ensures the particles are efficiently collected without forming an excessive pressure drop in the system. Structure A cartridge dust collector uses an air-jet cleaning structure to preserve ...

  • How to Choose the Right Commercial Air Filter

    When it comes to selecting a commercial air filter, or air filtration system, there are many variables that have to be considered. In general, the choice of which air filter can be made a bit easier by first defining the overall goal that you are trying to achieve which is usually one of two options. Is the purpose of the filter to protect the air circulation equipment, or is it to provide a ...

  • Calculating pressure drop of nanofiber air filter media

    Nanofibers are becoming an integral part of many advanced air filtration media thanks to their enormous specific surface area. The large surface area, however, can cause strong resistance against fluid motion, which leads to an increase in pressure drop. Pressure drop caused by fibrous media has been the focus of many pioneering studies in the past, resulting in analytical or empirical ...

  • Combination filters

    Simply defined, a combination filter is one that does at least one other processing job at the same time as filtering a suspension. The classic example, of course, is the packed bed of activated charcoal, which acts as a remover of chemical impurities from the suspension, as well as removing dust particles - although this is actually not a very good example, because it is primarily an adsorber, ...

  • Influence of air flow rate and backwashing on the hydraulic behaviour of a submerged filter

    The aim of this study was to evaluate backwashing effects on the apparent porosity of the filter media and on the hydraulic behaviour of a pilot scale submerged filter, prior to biofilm colonization, under different hydraulic retention times, and different air flow rates. Tracer curves were analysed with two mathematical models for ideal and non-ideal flow (axial dispersion and Wolf and Resnick ...

  • Minimising Risks to Air Quality and Regulatory Compliance With Total Filter Management

    It has been shown in recent studies that as much as 25% of the total site operating budget (excluding raw material costs) for a typical medium-large dosage-form manufacturing facility will be spent on compliance measures for internal quality systems and external regulatory activities. (1) Market realities indicate that the pharmaceutical companies will need to address the overall cost of ...

  • Treatment of Spent Filter Backwash Wastewater Using Dissolved Air Flotation Process

    Spent Filter Backwash Water (SWW) is a major recycle stream that accounts for 10% (about 30 mgd) of the average flow at Blue Plains Advanced Wastewater Treatment Plant (AWTP) and a similar proportion of nitrification and denitrification treatment process capacity (DCWASA Focus, November 2004). The peak SWW flow and load result from increased filter washing during high flow events. The combined ...

  • Biotretment of polluted air of a storage for used plastics in bio-trickling filter (BTF)

    The problem High concentrations of unhealthy sporogenic funghi and bacteria in malodorous gases of a used plastic storage could not be purified by classical compost filters, because of their high emissions of microorganisms. Problem solution By indoor-biofiltration in a bio-trickling filter using microbially activated LEVAPOR carrier the polluted air has ...

  • On PM 2.5 Filters, Let’s just clear the air between us; ok?

    In the area of a former military building complex in the Chaoyang District of Beijing is a unique and thriving artistic community.  In the middle of this art district, is a strange 7-meter tall tower shaped like an avant-garde metallic pineapple.  Designed by Dutch artist Daan Roosegaarde, it is both an artistic creation and a functional tool meant to test a possible solution for ...

  • High-Tech Filters

    The current economic situation of the cement industry creates sensitivity regarding off-times and process stability. More stringent air-pollution laws, especially when using waste-derived fuels, are drawing more attention to the off-gas cleaning facilities, usually bag filters. This article does not deal with electrostatic precipitators - as even they have well known disadvantages. By using more ...

  • Effective production of rapid filters with polystyrene granules as a media filter

    In conventional water treatment stations, the filter cleaning is performed with the use of filtered water. To save water and obtain higher production, the use of polystyrene (PS) beads has been proposed as a granular filter element because it is a granular element with a low specific mass. By being lightweight, this material requires a lower water velocity during backwash. The PS beads were ...
