Filter For a Stress-Free Future
Product Info on the R100™ Coalescing Filter
The R100™ works by combining a horizontal body with vertical coalescing filter elements. This design offers maximum efficiency, by taking advantage of both gravity and inertial impact (Figure 1). Each filter element contains particulate and coalescing sub-micron filtration (seen in Figure 2 and 3) and has efficiencies of 0.03 micron or higher, removing 98% of airborne dust, dirt and liquids. The R-Series filters remove the solid particles and liquids from natural gas, utilizing multi-stage filtration technology which reduces maintenance service and downtime.
The benefit of using a filter of this sort is that regular filtration provides continuous prevention of debris buildup, and will help you avoid an operational issue such as the one Mary experienced. Consistent filtration will help to prevent hefty maintenance costs, time lost for production and extends the lifetime of many products. When filtering, it is also recommended to filter at multiple stages of a process, as debris and liquids can accumulate at several different locations throughout a system. Filtering before an important unit (such as control valves, regulators, meters, and analyzers… etc) is recommended and will ensure maximum protection from buildup. Any model can be modified to perfectly meet the specific needs a customer is seeking.
R100 Success in Action:
A natural gas supplier in Virginia installed several of these R100™ filters to remove solid and liquid particles from natural gas. The site manager was amazed by how well the system worked to remove contaminants, and that it did not require any service after six months. After less than a year, the company had saved seventy-five hours of remote field maintenance and over $20,000 in replacement filter elements compared to the products they used in the past. By using the R100™ at their site the company gained an operational advantage, saving both time and money.
