The Advanced Filtration Guide to Heat Exchangers

Here at Advanced Filtration, we work with a diverse array of industrial filter product, from mist eliminators to Y-strainers to HVAC media filters, and everything in between. You'll find all kinds of literature in our blog about all of these lines we carry, and today we're going to discuss a specific topic: heat exchangers. What Is a Heat Exchanger? A heat exchanger is a device designed to efficiently transfer heat from one medium to another without them coming into direct contact. It's used in various applications where the heat from one fluid (liquid or gas) needs to be transferred to another fluid without mixing them. Many of Advanced Filtration's clients require exact-specified materials for their heat exchanger needs. Heat exchangers are found in everyday appliances, including air conditioners, refrigerators, and car engines. But they are also used in industrial processes such as power generation, chemical processing, and HVAC systems. They come in different types, such as shell and tube, plate, and finned tube exchangers, each suited for specific purposes depending on a variety of factors, including: The required heat transfer efficiency; Space available for the product; The nature of the fluids involved. How Heat Exchangers Work As mentioned above, a heat exchanger works…

Why Do You Need To Hire a Filter Specialist?

Power plant generation and industrial processes need to keep their hydraulic fluids and lubricating oils pure. This decreases costs for these fluids, increases equipment quality functioning , decreases downtime, and extends the life of your engines and other equipment that depend on these fluids. What helps you do this? Filters. Filter specialists, like Advanced Filtration, are experts in the field of filtration, especially geared towards power plant generation and industrial equipment.

What Are Power Breathers, How Do They Work, and Why Are They Important?

If you work with any sort of industrial equipment, you've probably heard the term "Power Breather" before. Large-scale machinery, gearboxes, sumps and reservoirs, and other types of production equipment make use of them. But if you're not sure what they are or how they work, then you're in the right place. In this article, the industrial filtration experts at Advanced Filtration will not only go over the basics of Power Breathers, but also we'll explain why they are an important component for your critical machinery. What is a Power Breather? The Power Breather belongs to the family of devices known as desiccant breathers. Desiccants are materials that both attract and hold water molecules--technically known as a hygroscopic substance. Desiccants produce a state of dryness around them, and are commonly found in items we buy regularly. The small packet labeled "Do Not Eat" found inside a pack of beef jerky or a bottle of medication is a desiccant. Another place you commonly see desiccants are new shoes. Basically any product that could be ruined or spoiled by moisture or humidity is likely to ship with some sort of desiccant included. Desiccant breathers are devices installed on a machine that not only…

Why Industrial Filtration Is Important To Power Generators

Effective filtration of power generation engines is critical in order to avoid costly downtime and repairs. Industrial filtration systems remove contaminants from the engine oil, fuel, and coolant before they can cause damage. By preventing wear and corrosion, industrial filters help power generators run more efficiently and last longer. In this article, the industrial filtration experts at Advanced Filtration will discuss the different types of industrial filtration systems and how they work to protect power generators. We will also touch on the importance of proper maintenance and replacement of filters to keep power generators running smoothly. Why is filtration so important? Industrial filters are important because they prevent wear and corrosion by removing contaminants before they can cause damage. They also help power generators run more efficiently by preventing clogs and keeping engines clean. Without effective filtration, power generators would be at risk of damage from dirt, dust, and other airborne contaminants. This could lead to a loss of power or even a complete shutdown of the generator. That’s why it’s so important to have an industrial filtration system in place to protect your investment. Not only will it save you money in the long run, but it will also…
