Filtration Systems Filter Vessels
Filtration Systems makes a wide variety of filter elements for use in these pressure vessels. The most commonly used elements are the depth-type sock filters, which use a combination of wood and cotton fibers, in a rolled configuration. Depth filters are particularly effective in lube oil service, for removal of sludge, varnish and combustion by-products.

Special chemically treated depth elements are available for sour-gas applications. These filters neutralize the acids in problem fuels, reducing engine wear and corrosion.

Pleated filters are also available, in a variety of media and micron ratings. Pleated elements have extended surface area for long life and low pressure drops.

For installations where used-filter disposal is a concern, Filtration Systems has developed an all-plastic element that can be incinerated. Internal adapters eliminate the need for metal components in the replacement filter elements.
