Processes and systems that require the separation of liquid aerosols and droplets from gas need a coalescing filter.
This type of filter element essentially comprises of two parts, an inner and an outer layer. The inner layer consists of a high-efficiency coalescing stage whilst the outer layer is a courser stage used for drainage.
Any liquid aerosols or droplets are caught within the fine fibres of the inner layer, eventually accumulating to the extent that they are forced to the outer layer of the filter element and in to the ‘bowl’ of the housing. High efficiency filtration gives a removal rate of upto 99.99% of 0.1 micron aerosols and droplets.
Coalescing filters can be seen as multifunctional filtration solutions thanks to their ability to filter particulates just as efficiently as they coalesce aerosols and droplets. Meaning, if you have an application that requires both types of filtration, a coalescing filter is ideal.
Inverted Coalescing Filter Housing
Our SV series coalescing housings offer a super-efficient filtration solution with the benefit of an inverted position of the housing ensuring easy servicing without disconnecting the drain port fittings. Several housing sizes are available and we are happy to design special housings to suit your application.
