CHARACTERISTICS OF PUMPS FOR FILTRATION APPLICATIONS

Notes on pump applications:

Reciprocating pumps seldom used in filtration systems because of destructive effect of surges on filter media pump life can be prolonged significantly if the pump can be neutralized or flushed with clearwater after each use or at the end of each work day. .
Abrasive or high viscosity slurries require that pump selection and operating speed be given added consideration.

PERFORMANCE CHARACTERISTICS OF FILTER CARTRIDGES

WHEN TO USE CARTRIDGE FILTRATION

CARTRIDGE FILTERS CAN BE USED WITH LIQUIDS OR GASES OVER A WIDE RANGE OF PROCESSING CONDITIONS. PROPER CARTRIDGE APPLICATION CONDITIONS GENERALLY INCLUDE:

  • REMOVAL RATINGS FROM .2 TO 500 MICRONS.
  • SYSTEM PRESSURES FROM A NEAR VACUUM TO SEVERAL THOUSAND PSI.
  • VISCOSITIES TO 100,000cps
  • TEMPERATURES FROM NEAR ABSOLUTE ZERO TO 1000 °F.
  • FLOW RATES TO SEVERAL THOUSAND GPM OR SCFM

WHEN TO CHANGE CARTRIDGES*

LITTLE ADDITIONAL USEFUL LIFE IS ACHIEVED BY OPERATING CARTRIDGES BEYOND P=35 DISADVANTAGE OF EXCEEDING P =35 IS POSSIBLE CONTAMINATION OF FILTRATE

SURFACE VERSUS DEPTH FILTRATION

COMPARISON OF FLOW RATE VS . PRESSURE DROP FOR DEPTH AND SURFACE ELEMENTS.

PRESSURE LOSS DUE TO VISCOSITY

CARTRIDGE PRESSURE DROP VARIES LINEARLY WITH FLOW RATE AND VISCOSITY.

IMPORTANCE OF LOW INITIAL PRESSURE DROP

APPROXIMATELY ½ OF THE USEFUL LIFE OF A FILTER ELEMENT IS LOST BY SELECTING A SYSTEM WITH AN INITIAL PRESSURE DROP OF 5 PSIG AS COMPARED TO 1-2 PSIG .

PARTICLE RETENTION EFFICIENCY

COMPARISON OF THE THREE TYPES OF MEDIA INDICATES THE DIFFERENT CUT OFF CHARACTERISTICS. THE DEPTH ELEMENT RETAINS MORE PARTICULATE SMALLER THAN ITS RATED SIZE WHILE ALLOWING PASSAGE OF SOME LARGER PARTICLES .

DIRT HOLDING CAPACITY

DIRT HOLDING CAPACITY IS GREATER FOR HIGHER MICRON RATED ELEMENTS THAN FOR THOSE OF TIGHTER SELECTIVITY.

CURVES ALSO ILLUSTRATE THAT ELEMENTS WILL CAPTURE MORE DIRT AT LOWER FLOW RATES .

FLOW RATE AFFECTS PERFORMANCE

PERFORMANCE OF A CARTRIDGE IS INFLUENCED BY FILTRATION VELOCITY, EFFICIENCY TENDING TO FALL OFF AS THE FLOW RATE INCREASES.

AFFECT IS GREATER FOR HIGHER MICRON RATED TUBES.

*SUGGESTED REPLACEMENT PRESSURE DROP

  • PLEATED PAPER ELEMENTS – 20-25 PSID
  • WOUND ELEMENTS (UNRESINATED) – 30-35 PSID
  • WOUND ELEMENTS (RESINATED) – 50-70 PSID
  • AIR ELEMENTS – 12-15 PSID
  • COALESCER ELEMENTS – 15-20 PSID
