What To Look For In Filter Cloth for Industrial Filtration

Here at Advanced Filtration, we look at all aspects of the filter industry so that we can provide the best products and services to our customers. In this article, we're going to take a look at one very specific aspect of our trade: filter cloth. For industrial filtration applications to succeed, you must use the right filter cloth. This means you must select the suitable filter media carefully to get the best filter cloth that matches the kind of machine it’s to work under. Remember, there are different types of filter cloths for various applications, which depend on the service life or compatibility. But what should you look for in a filter cloth when choosing the best fit for industrial filtration? Understanding Different Types of Filter Cloths Different types of filter cloth range from 1 micron to 1500 microns. Having the right filter cloth enables you to get drier filter cakes with a longer service life. Such helps better the industrial filter press efficiency and lower the maintenance costs. The right type of filter cloth to use depends on its application. For example, filter cloth for food processing differs from that for pharmaceuticals or automotive. The types of filter clothes…

Understanding Reverse Osmosis Purification

We here at Advanced Filtration know that some of the processes we deal with on a day-to-day basis, as well as some of the products we sell, can get pretty complicated pretty quickly. If you're ever confused about topics such as "reverse osmosis" or "reverse filter pulse cleaning," then our blog is the right place for you. This article will explain the basics of the reverse osmosis purification process and is intended to educate in a simplified way to an audience that has little or no experience with the process. Read on to find out about reverse osmosis, how it is applied in industry, and some of our partners and product lines that carry systems, parts, and replacement parts for the maintenance and protection of your reverse osmosis purification system. What is Reverse Osmosis? Reverse osmosis is a water purification process that uses a partially permeable membrane to remove debris, ions, and chemicals from a water supply. In reverse osmosis, pressure is applied in order to overcome natural osmotic pressure and squeeze a solution through a membrane that is either nonporous or uses nanofiltration, where pores in the membrane are 0.001 micrometers in size. The result of this pressurized filtering…

How Reverse Filter Pulse Cleaning Works – Part II

Welcome to Part 2 of our 2-part article series, "How Reverse Filter Pulse Cleaning Works." In our previous article, we looked at what a reverse filter pulse cleaning system is, how it works, and what it's used for. We also discussed the main components of a reverse filter pulse cleaning system, including the compressed air reservoir, the pulse valve, the timer, and of course the filter. In this article, we'll review some operation tips to keep your system running well, some common issues to prevent wasting compressed air, as well the key terms you need to know when working with this technology. Operational Tips for Reverse Pulse Cleaning Systems Each system may have nuanced differences in materials and layouts. For example, the compressed air connection can be plumbed using heavy-duty rubber tubing or black pipe. Regardless of these differences, however, the following tips should be kept in mind for streamlined operation: Take care of the compressed air connection’s inline air regulator to maintain desired PSI (pounds of force per square inch) level Ensure temperature control to prevent condensation Pulse cleaning should operate at 90 PSI to avoid damage to the filter Keep the electrical requirements for the solenoids front of…

How Reverse Filter Pulse Cleaning Works – Part I

Here at Advanced Filtration, we're all about making sure our customers have optimized industrial filtration systems to ensure efficiency and financial savings without compromising air quality. One of the best ways of doing this is by using reverse pulse dust filters, which work in an innovative way to remove dust particles from the workplace. But how does a reverse pulse filter work? In this article, which is Part I of a two-part series on Reverse Filter Pulse Cleaning Systems, the industrial filter experts at Advanced Filtration will explore the mechanics of a reverse pulse filter, the various components, and operational guidelines for best results. Check out Part II here. What Are Reverse Filter Pulse Cleaning Systems? Let's start with some definitions. A reverse pulse, also known as a "pulse jet" or "reverse jet," is a type of filter cleaning system. While simple in design, the system produces effective results. The system follows the same basic mechanics as a regular dust collector — but with a twist. Air flows from the outside of the filter to the center, leaving filtered dust particles on the outside of the filter. A blast of compressed air is pushed through the filter's center, causing the dust…

What Is a HEPA Filter and Why Is It Important in Industrial Filtration?

In this article, the industrial filter experts at Advanced Filtration are going to answer the question: what are HEPA filters and why are they important? As the owner of a company or industry, you want to make sure that your workers are breathing in clean air. This is not only for their health but also for their productivity. If your workers are constantly coughing and sneezing, they're not going to be working at their full potential. Besides, workplace illnesses from poor indoor air quality(IAQ) can lead to high health insurance costs and a lot of lost productive time. One way to ensure that your workplace has good air quality is to install a HEPA filter in your industrial filtration system. But what exactly is a HEPA filter? How does it work? And why is it so important? Read on to find out. What Is a HEPA Filter and How Does It Work? The acronym "HEPA" stands for "high-efficiency particulate air." A HEPA filter is a type of mechanical air filter that works by trapping particles in a mesh of very fine fibers. HEPA filters are designed to meet certain standards set by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE). To be…

Polypropylene and Polypropylene Resin for Industrial Filters

In this article, the industrial filtration experts at Advanced Filtration in New Jersey are getting specific: we're discussing talking all about polypropylene and polypropylene resin for filters. Industrial filtration companies are constantly on the lookout for new and improved ways to keep their systems running smoothly. In recent times, polypropylene has become an increasingly popular choice. This is especially true for many industrial applications. Polypropylene is known for its excellent strength and durability. It is also resistant to most chemicals, making it an ideal material for filters. In this blog post, we'll take a look at polypropylene and its properties. We'll also take a look at how effective polypropylene resin is for filters. Suez Flotrex AP (all polypropylene) capsule filters (CFAP) What is polypropylene? Polypropylene, also known as polypropene, is a thermoplastic polymer. It is made up of long chains of propylene monomers. Polypropylene is a tough and rigid plastic. It has a high melting point, making it ideal for many industrial applications. Polypropylene is used in many different industries. This includes the automotive, electrical, and medical industries. It is also frequently used in the production of packaging and food containers. The history of polypropylene Polypropylene…
