Computer Controlled Pleater — A computer-controlled pleater is used to produce consistently-sharp pleats to maximize performance and reliability.
Cellulosic Media — Filtration Systems' air filters use various grades of cellulosic paper media, made from wood fibers and bonded with polymeric resins for added strength and washability. These media provide high dirt holding capacity, high efficiency, low restriction to flow and low cost. In addition, by using Beta Ratios for its cellulosic media, the cleanliness of fluids is known to the user.
Mullen & Frazier — We test the media characteristics of competitor’s filters to provide risk-free alternate-sourcing from Filtration Systems.
Lock-Seam — Filter shells are lock-seamed (not spot welded) to eliminate sharp edges and injury when servicing the filters.
Redundant Seals — The majority of these products feature molded ends made from a soft, durable rubber compound. These molded ends have integral gaskets, with a large primary sealing surface and a back-up seal (with a slightly lower profile) to protect the engine in the event of leakage at the primary seal.
Filtration Systems makes a wide range of fiberglass filter elements for natural gas purification. Our media is molded into seamless tubes and reinforced with phenolic resin (a distinct improvement over some competitor's "pipe insulation"). Natural gas is often dirty, wet and corrosive, and gas filters have to withstand liquid slugging and abrasion from pipe scale. Our cartridges use high efficiency seamless fiberglass tubes, reinforced with a spiral lockseamed center tubes for high collapse strength. Cross references to PECO, Peerless, King Tool, Jonell, Flo-Line and Banner.
Since these filters are often installed ahead of large compressors, they must be designed to withstand vibration, pulsation, and abrasion from pipe scale and liquid slugging.
Our center tubes feature a spiral-lockseam construction for high collapse strength, and the metal is plated for corrosion resistance. The end caps are bonded to the media and center tube with a high-strength adhesive.
We use a polyester core-wrap to prevent media migration, as fiberglass fibers are very abrasive. Regrettably, some of our competitors don't use core wrap!
For applications where iron sulfide is a problem, we offer a polyester membrane core
- Tin-plated metal end caps are bonded to the center tube for added strength. Choice of Buna-N or Viton gaskets.
- Double-louvered center tubes provide low flow restriction. Made in-house for excellent availability and cost control.
- Spun-bonded polyester core wrap prevents media migration. Available membrane wrap provides .3-micron protection.
- Molded seamless 6# fiberglass media removes particulates >1u and coalesces liquids for clean, dry natural gas.
