The Different Filters and Strainers In Industrial Filtration

Here at Advanced Filtration, we work with tons of different equipment, from all manner of industrial filters and strainers to a vast array of applicable parts, valves, and systems. Naturally there can be some confusion as to what it all means. So in this article we're going to look at the difference between a temporary, tee, y, basket, and duplex strainer in industrial filtration. If you ever need assistance with your decision-making on these products, give us a call at (732) 901-6676. The Difference Between Industrial Filters A temporary strainer is a type of filter that is used for a short period of time, typically for cleaning or maintenance purposes. A tee strainer is a type of filter that is installed in a pipe and has a T-shaped configuration. A Y strainer is similar to a tee strainer, but has a Y-shaped configuration. A basket strainer is a type of filter that uses a basket-shaped element to strain out contaminants. A duplex strainer is a type of filter that has two basket strainers, typically used in applications where a high level of filtration is required. Different types of filters are used in different industries Different types of filters may be used…

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…

What Is Viscosity, And Why Does It Impact Industrial Filtration?

Here at Advanced Filtration, we deal with a variety of industries around the world, and we take care of many different kinds of filter systems--from power generation to biotechnology to pharmaceuticals, and everything in between. What all these disparate industries have in common, in our world, are certain factors in their filters, and one of these is "viscosity." But what is viscosity, and why is it so important to industrial filtration? In this article, we're going to answer those questions. Defining Viscosity When discussing viscosity, a poignant image to describe the concept begins with a styrofoam cup. Now–imagine you poke a hole into the bottom of the said styrofoam cup. Then visualize pouring honey into this hollowed-out cup. You’ll notice that the draining process is incredibly slow. After all, honey has a much larger viscosity than other liquids, such as water, which would drain at a lightning pace by comparison. On a broad level, viscosity measures a fluid’s flow resistance and a moving fluid’s internal friction. Fluids with higher viscosities stave off motion since internal friction is derived from their molecular makeup. Conversely, low-viscosity fluids flow seamlessly since there’s minimal friction in their molecular makeup when in motion. Gasses also…

Wet and Dry Filters In An Industrial Filtration System

Here at Advanced Filtration, we encounter hundreds, if not thousands, of different kinds of products that are used in a variety of industrial filtration systems. And in our many years of selling industrial filters, we come across common questions again and again--so in this article, we'd like to discuss the the different between wet and dry filters in industrial filtration systems, and how they are used. Wet and dry filters are commonly used to remove contaminants from gases, liquids, or slurries in industrial filtration systems. In many cases, it can be difficult to determine which type of filter to use based on the desired results. If you’re looking to use a wet or dry filter in your industrial filtration system, here are some things you should know about the differences between the two types of filters. (And if you still have questions, please feel free to reach out to Advanced Filtration for help!) Wet Filters A wet filter is a type of industrial filtration system that uses liquid instead of gas to remove unwanted particles from a flow. They're commonly used in chemical plants and other industries where liquid or gaseous wastes need to be filtered and treated. These filters…

On Diesel Fuel Filtration

If you've perused our site for just a few minutes, then you'll already know that we here at Advanced Filtration deal with thousands of different types of products, filters, power generators, separators, water systems, filter vessels, media, bags, housings, and so much more. We work with many different industries, from chemical to power to metals and minig, and all kinds of products, from reverse osmosis membranes to compressed air and gas filters to cast iron threaded Y strainers. But in this article, we're going to look at one specific type of product--that is, diesel. Diesel is more than fuel, as it performs several support functions to keep an engine efficient. For instance, not only is diesel fuel an engine’s primary energy source, it also lubricates moving parts to reduce unwanted wear. In addition, diesel is crucial for cooling mechanisms in a diesel engine, by absorbing unwanted heat generated by the engine. Exposing diesel fuel to the right amount of air provides the correct amount of power, which is why filtration and proper maintenance is so crucial to keeping diesel engines working properly. One reason for this is that diesel fuel collects contaminants during the process that affects the engine’s performance.…

Multi-stage Industrial Filtration Systems

Multi-stage industrial filtration systems use pre-filters to improve the performance of the usually more expensive primary filter performance which when properly done can significantly reduce costs. Multi-stage filtration, also known as series filtration, can extend the life of the more expensive main filter. Properly designed series filtration can also reduce maintenance hours in servicing the  filtration systems and equipment which can also reduce costs. The Advanced Filtration personnel are such believers in series filtration that we've incorporated it into our logo.
