How to Choose an Industrial Filtration System

There are numerous industries that make use of filtration systems, from pharmaceutical processing to food manufacturing to wastewater treatment. Selecting the right industrial filtration system involves many different factors including particle size of contaminants, operating conditions of the system, the chemical compatibility of the system, and the physical configuration of the housing unit. Filtration systems are an important part in an overall system so selecting a system is a decision that should be made with careful deliberation.

How to Choose an Industrial Filtration System

Particle Size

When selecting a filtration system, the first question you need to ask is “What are you filtering out?” Are the particles you are filtering out big or small? Organic or inorganic?

Operating Conditions

Operating conditions like temperature and pressure play a major role in what filtration system is best for you. If your system has liquid running through it that is hotter than 140°F, you’ll need to use a metal filter system rather than a plastic filtration system. Likewise, you need to be aware of the pressure limitations of your filter.

Chemical Compatibility

When looking at the chemical compatibility of filtration systems, you need to look at the compatibility of the liquid being filtered and the filter itself.

If the filter is not chemically compatible with the liquid flowing through it, it could result in the degradation to the filter which would allow contaminants to continue to flow within the stream. When choosing a filtration system, it is important to note if any chemicals are flowing through the system and then research to ensure they are compatible with the filtration materials.

Physical Configuration of Housing

The physical configuration of the filtration systems housing comes in many different shapes and sizes. Not only are there a myriad of different systems to choose from (such as cartridge filters, single or multi-bag filter systems, and self cleaning filters), you also need to consider other physical constraints.

The industry filtration system is one of the most important components of an operating system. Consider what type of particles you will be filtering out and what the chemical compatibility of your system is then explore your options to find which system is the best fit for you.
