Industrial liquid filtration for removal of solid particles from a liquid process
Winston/Royal Guard Type 61V Vertical Liquid Filters remove solid contaminants from various liquid process streams in refining, chemical, petrochemical, oil and gas, and other industries. Liquid process filtration applications vary widely and a variety of liquid filter cartridges including materials and particle retention sizes are available.
Particulate filtration applications for industrial liquid filters include light hydrocarbons, acids, alkalies, process water, glycols, amines, and many other process and finished product liquids. These liquid filters may be used for removing solid contaminants from injection well water to refinery filter applications.
For continous operation during filter cartridge change-outs when downtime is not an option, a dual configuration is the solution. Featured are two Type 61V Filters mounted on a common base frame and piped with heavy duty valves for switching between the active and idle filtration units. When requested, customer specified valves can typically be furnished with the system.
Filter Cartridges are available in a variety of types and styles so as to meet stringent application requirements for liquid process filtration. Some examples of filter types are:
- Wound fiber depth style cartridges available with media in cotton, fiberglass, nylon, acrylic/orlon, polyester, polypropylene and Rayon. Particle retention sizes are 0.5, 1, 3, 5, 15, 20, 25, 30, and up to 200 microns.
- Pleated cartridges provide the maximum surface area for trapping large amounts of contaminants with the added benefit of longer service life between change-outs. For a wide range of chemical compatibilities, these cartridges are available in polypropylene, polyester, and microglass with a selection of end treatment materials and designs. Micron ratings are from 1 to 70 with efficiencies to 99.98% (beta 5000).
- Melt blown liquid filter cartridges for high viscosity liquids made of polyester and acrylic fibers in a depth style configuration. Retentions sizes are 2, 5, 10, 25 50, 75, 125, and 150 microns. Maximum liquid temperature is 250 ⁰ F.
Particulate filtration is recommended to be provided upstream of activated carbon filters to prevent solids from contaminating the carbon, and downstream to catch any carbon fines carryover.
