The Industrial Filter Manufacturers KNOCK-OUT POT/INLET Filter
Series are designed to effectively remove liquids an/or particulate from the process gas of industrial equipment.
operating pressure and temperature of all VAGAU models is 15 PSIG
and 300 degrees Fahrenheit. Inlet/Outlet connections are 150# ANSI raised
face slip-on flanges. The vessel design provides for mechanical separation
of mist, liquid and other contaminants into a large volume sump area, reducing
the contaminant load and increasing the filter element life.
separation of entrained materials is accomplished in three stages.
The first stage removes the bulk liquid by the centrifugal motion
of the gas
stream as it enters the vessel through a tangential inlet. In the second
stage, a demister removes small liquid particles of mist and also acts
as a pre-filter for particulate. Properly selected, conventional
pads are ideal
in most applications. At the moderate vapor velocity and liquid load for
which a pad is designed, liquid trying to escape collects in a thin, flooded
layer at the bottom of the pad. Bubbling causes re-entraininment of liquid,
compounding the mist load. Virtually all droplets large enough for the
wire to capture are eliminated in the lower half of the pad.
The upper part, inactive
as yet, is available for increased loads. The third stage is a particulate
filter which removes solids with a standard efficiency of 98% of 5 microns.
Radial Fin filter element standard construction includes a durable felted polypropylene
medium rated at 98% efficiency on 4 microns and larger. When conditions demand,
alternate media of synthetic fibers or glasses can be supplied from .3 to
100 microns nominal retention
