Filtration is one of the more basic yet crucial operations in every production facility that uses process fluids. Without an effective method of filtration, several different classes of problems will arise due to contaminants; the class of the problem depends on the size and characteristics of the contaminants. Whether those problems manifest in quality issues with your end product, a decrease in the life of the tools used to manufacture that product, or an unhealthy operator environment, it pays off to make sure you have good filtration in place.
How does it work?
There are several types of filtration methods used to filter, or separate, undesired material out of valuable fluids. The liquid can be water, oil, solvent, or solutions. When separating a liquid from a solid, or a liquid from liquid and solid material, the most fundamental aspect in play is the relative motion of the liquids and the solids. In addition to their relative motion, each component has a specific size and set of characteristics. The size and characteristics determine which process should be used for effective filtration.
