OV Single Filters

Description

Principle of Operation

Airpel Series OV single basket filters are designed for the removal of solids from liquid flows. Any solids larger than the selected filtration media are retained within the filter basket (in to out filtration) and can then be disposed of safely and in a controlled manner. The OV series is used in liquid handling installations where the flow can be interrupted for short periods to allow the removal of the basket for cleaning.

Construction

All Airpel Series single basket filters are of cast construction and house a high quality stainless steel cylindrical basket. The design allows quick and easy access to the basket so it can be cleaned and re-used, helping reduce operating costs and controlling debris levels.

Applications

Protect Pipeline Equipment Against Damage

Machinery such as pumps and valves can be broken by grit, metal fragments, etc. while nozzles and heat exchangers have narrow construction that could easily become blocked, this equipment is expensive to repair / replace and the cost of downtime could be crippling, so the installation of a strainer ensures that the primary equipment is protected from any unplanned outage.

Typical Applications would include:

  • Nozzle protection
  • Heat exchanger protection
  • Valve protection
  • Pump protection

Remove particles from fluid product

Even if pipeline equipment is not at risk particles in discharge may breach environmental legislation or product acceptance criteria, so the use of a strainer / filter can prove to be a cost effecting and efficient way to maintain the process fluids quality whilst maintaining working standards.

Common industries where product quality is essential:

  • Water treatment
  • Food and beverage
  • Pharmaceutical
  • Paints, inks and varnishes, etc.
