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…

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…

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…
