All About Floating Ball Valves

In this article, the industrial filtration experts at Advanced Filtration in New Jersey are going to look at another specific type of machinery that we deal with every day: floating ball valves. If you're interested in learning more about the ins and outs of the industrial filtration industry, have a look at our in-depth explanation of butterfly valves. So without further ado, let's talk about floating ball valves. What is a Floating Ball Valve? A floating ball valve is a type of valve used to control the flow of fluids through a pipeline. It gets its name from the design of the ball inside the valve, which is free to move or "float" within the valve body. The valve consists of a hollow spherical ball with a hole (bore) through its center. When the valve is open, the fluid flows through the bore, and when the valve is closed, the ball rotates to block the flow. The ball is held in place by two sealing rings or seats, one on each side of the ball. In a floating ball valve, the ball is not fixed or trunnioned within the valve body. Instead, it is held in position by the pressure…

All About Cooling Tower Filtration

A cooling tower filtration system is a filter for cleaning and removing debris to prevent clogging of a cooling tower. The mechanical components of a cooling tower need to be regularly cleaned to keep them in perfect working condition. Poorly maintained cooling towers can act as breeding grounds for illnesses. An optimally-functioning cooling tower filter minimizes the formation of corrosion and scale inside the cooling tower. Additionally, cooling tower filtration systems sanitize and filter the water passing through your tower. This keeps the tower running effectively, improving each component's performance and prolonging its lifespan. We've got three main types of cooling tower filtration units: biological, mechanical, and chemical. The best filter for your cooling tower depends on the water quality, features, and usability. Mechanical filters have filters and screens that sieve and remove unwanted particles from water. Biological filtration units break down and remove pollutants using safe bacteria. Chemical filters use resins and activated carbon to remove pollutants. Both biological and chemical filters are ideal for removing small-sized particles, while mechanical filters remove bigger particles. How do Cooling Tower Filters Work? In their normal function of reducing the temperature of water-cooled systems, cooling towers can trap and introduce airborne contaminants.…

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…
