IS YOUR FILTRATION SYSTEM REALLY WORKING FOR YOU?

Just having a high-efficiency filter installed does not mean that a compressor or process is better protected. Environmental influences affect a filter’s performance and can lead to serious ongoing problems onsite that result in reduced process availability – something that can cost millions of dollars. On evaluating a gas turbine inlet system and the local challenges it faces, it is sometimes simple changes that can dramatically improve filter performance. Expert knowledge based on real-world filtration system performance can deliver small but critical changes to a system’s design that can make a huge difference to overall process performance. Gas turbines are...

DUST COLLECTION TIPS FOR FOOD PROCESSING

Cross-contamination is a serious concern in the food processing industry, especially for manufacturers that process foods “free-from” gluten or allergens. Facilities that produce both non-allergy-friendly or gluten-containing foods and free-from foods face even more challenges. Food products can’t be free-from unless the facility and processing equipment are as well — including air in the facility, which can contain dust from airborne food particles. To ensure the safety of the food supply, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s Food Safety Modernization Act requires processing facilities to implement allergen controls. These are written procedures the facility must create and implement to control allergen cross-contact...

Filtration Definition and Processes (Chemistry)

Filtration is a process used to separate solids from liquids or gases using a filter medium that allows the fluid to pass, but not the solid. The term "filtration" applies whether the filter is mechanical, biological, or physical. The fluid that passes through the filter is called the filtrate. The filter medium may be a surface filter, which is a solid that traps solid particles, or a depth filter, which is a bed of material that traps the solid. Filtration is typically an imperfect process. Some fluid remains on the feed side of the filter or embedded in the filter media and some small solid particulates...
