By Kenneth S Sutherland, George Chase

Filters are utilized in such a lot industries, specially the water, sewage, oil, fuel, foodstuff and beverage, and pharmaceutical industries. the hot variation of this validated name is an all-encompassing sensible account of ordinary filtration apparatus and its purposes. thoroughly revised and rewritten, it really is a vital booklet for the engineer operating in a plant situation-who calls for counsel and knowledge on what is to be had and no matter if it truly is compatible for the activity. Co-published with the establishment of Chemical Engineers.

Sample text

Surface vs depth filtration It has been stated that a filter medium is a porous (or at the very least semipermeable) barrier placed across the flow of a suspension to hold back some or all of the suspended material. If this barrier were to be very thin compared with the diameter of the smallest particle to be filtered (and perforated with even sized holes), then all the filtration would take place on the upstream surface of the medium. Any particle smaller than the pore diameter would be swept through the pores, and any particle larger than that (assuming the particles to be rigid) would remain on the upstream surface.

It should be noted that the beta ratio will be different from that determined by this test if it is used in a system that contains particle distributions that differ from the distribution used in the test. Many filter elements exhibit beta ratios that degrade significantly as pressure drops increase. A multi-pass test must therefore be run to a terminal pressure drop that is higher than the operational setting of the dirty element warning device in say a real hydraulic system, to obtain realistic beta ratios for the entire expected life of the filter.

Energy consumption in operation) and mechanical strength. A weak material, but one with the required filtration performance, can be strengthened by supporting it on a stronger substrate – but at an increase in cost per unit of filtration area. It is not unusual that a filter medium is over-specified, and consequently costs more than it need do. As seen in Section 1A, some filter media are extremely expensive, and there would appear to be little point in purchasing a costly or technologically advanced medium, when there is a well tried, tested and less expensive alternative available.
