Specialized Filters Offer Real-Time Sampling
Parker Hannifin’s Filtration and Separation Division's Balston fast-loop sample filters offer real-time sampling with high efficiency filtration. The flow pattern continuously flushes the filter cartridge carrying the contaminants back out to the process stream, helping to maximize the filter cartridge life.
Axial velocity flushes the bulk contaminants through the filter housing back to the process stream. The sample stream passes through the filter cartridge wall with low flow and radial velocity. The clean side of the sample filter system has very low volume which minimizes lag time. Filter cartridges are offered in a wide range of efficiencies from 100 micron to 0.01 micron, several of which are cleanable and re-useable.
These new filters can help reduce the maintenance requirements and costs of the entire sampling system by offering maximum protection to the analyzer and extending the life of the filter cartridge.
