Industrial filtration involves the removal of contaminating particles from air and other gases. Many industrial processes require air filtration and separation systems not only to protect equipment, but to also protect the work environment.
The most common uses for filtration include:
• Protecting Equipment from Ingesting Harmful Contaminants.
• Removing Contaminants to Purify air and gas streams.
• Protecting Personnel and the Work Environment.
• Separating and Isolating Desirable Product from the Air Stream.
Most Common Industrial Filtration Applications
In industrial manufacturing, filtration can help protect the complex and expensive machinery that’s used. When particles aren’t properly filtered out, they can cause damage to the equipment, which can ultimately lead to entire system failures. For example, leftover particles in a pipe can erode metal, cause malfunctions and require essential – and expensive – parts to need replacement.
Filtration is extremely important to keep things like water, chemicals, and pharmaceuticals clean, pure and free of contaminants. If it wasn’t for filtration, we might not have safe drinking water, because it plays a crucial role in eliminating sediment, sand, gravel, carbon and other suspended particles.
Filtration can help prevent cross-contamination, health hazards, workplace safety issues and environmental issues. It even helps companies comply with the safety and quality standards set by agencies like the EPA and OSHA.
Perforated tubes are designed with holes to separate particles from each other. Like straining pasta, many manufacturing and industrial processes need to isolate their own solids, gases, oils, water and other fluids to keep their systems functioning right.
Filtration helps many industrial operations flow smoothly and more efficiently. Take oil rigs, for example. When bringing oil up out of the ground, sand and debris get mixed in with the oil. Placing perforated tubes at the source can help get rid of some of those particles on the way up, saving time and effort on the surface.
