Wrapped Center Tube — Our core wrap prevents media migration so that abrasive fibers do not get released from the filter.
Metal End Caps — Filtration Systems uses metal end caps so our filters are sturdier than competitors who use plastic caps (or don't use caps at all).
Buna-N Gaskets — Our gaskets are 100% Buna-N (nitrile) and not the lower-quality "Buna-blends". Thus, our gaskets will not swell in natural gas service.
Fiberglass Media — Fiberglass media was considered a breakthrough in filtration technology when it was first introduced, because of its unique combination of high removal efficiencies and high permeability. Microglass fibers have very fine diameters, resulting in more void space, thus providing greater dirt-holding capacity and increased flow rates.
The fibers also have high surface charges, enabling them to attract polar compounds, such as water, out of hydrocarbon process streams. This "wettability" makes fiberglass filters effective coalescers, removing water and other liquids from refined product and natural gas.
Our fiberglass gas filters have extensive use in such diverse applications as gas gathering, dehydration units, sweetening plants, tail-gas treaters, industrial gas separation, sewage, landfill and digester gas, and cogeneration facilities.
Additionally, we use molded seamless bonded tubes instead of slit unbonded pipe insulation. This results in better filtration performance without bypass.
