Aim filters and liquid retaining both solid particles accompanying the process fluid
The filters separators have the purpose to retain the particles, solids and liquids, that go with the process fluid, for example; natural gas, this is with the purpose that subsequent equipments, downstream, do not have disturbances due to the presence of such particles. To retain these particles it can be used different types of Filters, Cartridge, coalescer or with internals of major efficiency. The cartridge filters type, the filtering element is a cartridge that can be manufactured of mesh, and the selection of mesh depends on the filtering degree required.
The coalescing filters, use as filtering mean cartridges of different materials causing on liquids particles the union of smaller particles with others, to be able to form particles of major diameters that can rush by gravity or the solid particles get trapped on the cartridge. In case that the filters with cyclonic elements, they use centrifugal strength to achieve the separation of particles.
